UGC releases guidelines to recognise foreign degrees

UGC releases guidelines

The UGC has released draft rules to determine the validity of foreign degrees. However, it does not include degrees obtained through remote learning or online courses.

Notably, these rules do not apply to professional degrees from foreign educational institutions in the fields of medicine, pharmacy, nursing, law, and architecture. The UGC also specified how to accept credentials from offshore campuses and boards in other countries.

This growth coincides with the progress made by foreign colleges in establishing campuses in Gujarat’s GIFT City. Similar to this, Indian universities are aggressively collaborating with foreign universities to offer dual or joint degree programs.

The UGC stipulates that a foreign higher education degree shall be recognized and equivalent if the student enrolls in a reputable institution back home.

Additionally, the program’s entrance standards should be on par with those of a comparable program in India.
