The British Council of India and Universities UK International have joined hands together for the launch of UKIERI Mobility Programme: Study in India. It will be a bilateral pilot programme which will support UK universities to collaborate with Indian partners to send UK students to India as part of their studies

When will the UKIERI Mobility Programme: Study in India programme start?

The UKIERI Mobility Programme: Study in India will open on July 2019 with an aim to generate 200 opportunities for undergraduate students at UK universities by March 2021, with priority given to students from traditionally underrepresented groups.

The British Council is the United Kingdom's international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities; in this capacity, it promotes initiatives which support partnerships and student mobility across universities and countries.

The programme will support national and institutional-level objectives to:

  • Increase the levels of outward student mobility from the UK to 13% by 2020, as set out in UUKi's Go International: Stand Out campaign
  • Support the employability of UK graduates and help them prepare for a globally competitive workforce
  • Support the internationalization of Indian higher education through the diversification of the student body, and the consolidation of inter-institutional partnerships

Universities UK International on the programme:

"We are delighted to support up to 200 UK students to study in India by March 2021. We know that students who go abroad tend to do better academically and professionally. We also know that exchanging students supports the development of strategic partnerships between universities." Vivienne Stern, Director, Universities UK International said

This scheme will be good for individual students and good for UK universities, but it also fits neatly with the Government of India's goal to attract a greater number of international students and support the development of international networks for some of India's strongest universities" she further added.

This scheme will benefit all those involved, and I look forward to working with our partners in India to ensure it is a great success." she concluded.

British Council of India on the programme:

The British Council is very pleased to launch the UKIERI Mobility Programme, contributing to the internationalisation of both Indian and UK higher education institutions." Barbara Wickham, OBE, Director British Council India said

"We believe students who have had international experience as part of their education have a broader, more global perspective of their subject that they then take on to their professional lives." she further added

"Through the Study in India programme, we hope to accelerate this inter-country exchange to give the best possible education to students for the mutual benefit of both countries." she concluded

UKIERI Mobility Programme: Study in India programme will be funded by:

The programme will be funded by the UK and Indian Governments as part of Phase 3 of the UK-India Education Research Initiative and delivered by the British Council, Universities UK International and EdCIL in India.
