Forty-eight Indian universities are already collaborating with foreign institutes for twinning courses, joint degrees and double degrees.

In May 2022, UGC introduced new guidelines for Indian institutes to offer joint courses with overseas institutes. When such collaborations were initially introduced in 2016, the rules were considered quite complex. However, Mr. Jagadesh Kumar, the current president of UGC, has relaxed the rules.

As per the guidelines, there are three types of courses available: (i) Joint Degree (ii) Dual Degree (iii) Paired Course (Part Indian and Part Foreign)

UGC has found that nearly 230 Indian institutes and more than 1200 tertiary institutes are eligible for these collaborations, 48 ​​Indian universities have already collaborated with overseas institutes so far.

FACTORS TO BECOME ELIGIBLE FOR COLLABORATION

In accordance with UGC guidelines, not all institutes may collaborate for joint programs. Only Indian higher education institutions listed in the top 100 of the NIRF rankings, or the top 1000 of the QS or Times Higher Education rankings would be eligible.

The top 1000 global universities listed in the QS or Times Higher Education rankings would also be eligible.
