Breaking Boundaries: Deakin University's Game-Changing Move Paves the Way for Global Education
Deakin University in Australia is set to become the first foreign university to establish a campus in India, a move that is expected to open up new opportunities for both Indian and Australian students. The Deakin University campus in India will be located in the GIFT city of Gujarat, and will offer a range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses in areas such as business, management, engineering, and health sciences. The campus will be operated in collaboration with Indian educational institutions, and will be fully compliant with Indian regulations and standards. An official announcement of Deakin's intention to open its first offshore campus will be made on March 8 during Australian Prime Minister Anthony Norman Albanese's visit to Ahmedabad. Deakin is ranked 266th in the QS World University Rankings and features among the top 50 young universities in the world. The move is expected to be a major boost for both Indian and Australian students. Indian students will have the opportunity to study at a top-tier Australian university without having to leave the country, while Australian students will have the chance to study in India and gain valuable experience in an emerging market. Moreover, the establishment of the Deakin University campus in India is expected to create new opportunities for collaboration between Australian and Indian universities, as well as between Australian and Indian businesses. This is likely to result in increased trade and investment between the two countries, and may lead to the establishment of further Australian campuses in India in the future.
