In order to ease the admission process for Indian students, University of Cambridge is unveiling a new initiative under which its admission staff will travel to India to conduct interviews for admission. It will help Indian students in a way that applicants need not travel to Britain for the admission process.
The initiative was announced as the university launched its version of the UK-India Year of Culture. It includes a large number of events and activities in India and Britain throughout the year that marks 70 years of India’s independence.
