UK and India sign agreement to mutually recognise each other's qualifications

22 July 2022

The UK and India have signed a historic agreement to officially recognise each other's higher education qualifications.

The Memorandum of Understanding, part of the UK-India Enhanced Trade Partnership (ETP), means A-levels and their equivalents, undergraduate and postgraduate degrees will now be recognised in India. 

The agreement will allow Indian students who graduate from UK universities to apply for postgraduate qualifications, or embark on government careers that require university qualifications, wh­en they return home.

International Trade Secretary Anne-Marie Trevelyan said: "UK universities already have a fantastic reputation around the globe. Now, we are delighted to deliver on our promise to unblock barriers to trade between our two nations and make UK higher education even easier to access and more appealing to Indian students."

Vivienne Stern MBE, Chief Executive, Universities UK International added: "The recognition of UK Masters’ is a particularly important development. It means that Indian graduates of the UK’s outstanding universities will receive formal recognition of their outstanding achievements and full access to jobs in the public sector in India."

 My consultant was very helpful and motivating. She helped me every step of the way, even when the deadline was so close. I feel I could not have done it without her. I'd highly recommend this service to any and all of my many friends interested.
