Australia is set to ink an education deal with India which will pave the way for institutional partnerships and boost collaboration between the two countries. Both sides will establish rules for mutual recognition of qualifications for access to education.
Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese announced that his country and the Indian government have finalized the Australia-India Education Qualification Recognition Mechanism. Albanese, on a visit to India, was speaking at a programme here to officially announce that Australia Deakin University would be setting up an international branch campus at GIFT City in Gujara Gandhinagar.
There is a significant development in our bilateral education relations. I am pleased to tell you that we have finalised Australia-India Education Qualification Recognition Mechanism,said Albanese
This new mechanism means that if you are an Indian student who is studying or have studied in Australia, your hard-earned degree will be recognised when you return home. Or if you are a member of Australia very large Indian diaspora -- 500,000 and growing -- you will feel more confident that your Indian qualification will be recognised in Australia, said Albanese.
