Part of the Going Global Partnerships programme, this grant is aimed at India-UK partnerships for the co-creation of joint programmes of study. The partnerships will increase the exchange of ideas and knowledge and deepen understanding through the creation of teaching modules with shared objectives, delivery plans, assessment, and quality assurance processes.
The key objective of the grant is to enhance opportunities for students in India and the UK to experience an international learning experience.
Two types of grants will be awarded under the Going Global Partnerships Grants
- Exploratory Grants - This will support nascent partnerships that require assistance to create strong plans for TNE (Transnational Education) and teaching collaborations. Awardees will jointly develop courses that meet global standards and allow easy credit comparability. The grant may be given to a consortium of up to four UK and Indian institutional partnerships.
There will be scope within the grant to secure consultancy services from ENIC, QAA, and others or deploy resources towards developing joint and collaborative teaching programmes at both undergraduate and graduate levels within the subject of interest. In the 2021-22 financial year, we anticipate awarding approximately ten grants between £15,000 to £20,000.
- Collaboration Grants - This will be awarded to pre-existing partners to expand the scope of work to include joint and collaborative teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Like the Exploratory grants, the key objective will be the development of a teaching and collaboration model, and a course or module that contributes towards UK and India bachelor’s or master’s qualifications.
The partners will be able to secure consultancy services from the UK service providers such as ENIC, QAA, and others. They will additionally be able to earmark a part of the grant to give TNE bursaries or scholarships to students to enable them to experience the UK education. A proposal for implementing learning within the state system through incentives, dissemination workshops or any other indication of systemic support will be desirable. In the 2021-22 financial year, we anticipate awarding two to three grants between the value of £30,000 to £100,000 each.
