Our work in higher education consists two programmes. The first is Internationalising Higher Education (IHE) and the second is a multi partner programme called UK-India Education and Research Initiative (UKIERI). IHE facilitates policy dialogues and partnerships, promotes scholarships, student mobility and alumni engagement. UKIERI aims to enhance educational links between India and the UK by supporting partnerships across all thematic areas. The programme focuses on Innovation, Skills Development, Leadership across all aspects of education and helps students, staff and researchers gain mobility between the two countries. The programme facilitates policy dialogues and engages with Government agencies both in the UK and India on areas of mutual interest like Credit Recognition, Quality Assurance, Leadership and Knowledge Transfer.
