Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan emphasized the importance of internationalizing education for India’s growth and development. He made this statement while visiting the upcoming campuses of two Australian universities, Deakin and Wollongong, in GIFT City, Gandhinagar, with his Australian counterpart Jason Clare.
These universities’ decision to set up campuses in India aligns with the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020, which focuses on internationalizing education. Pradhan believes that internationalizing education will provide Indian students with world-class education and research opportunities, new ideas, and global prospects, enhancing India’s soft power potential.
