University of New South Wales (UNSW), Sydney, has expressed an interest to partner with Indian universities to foster a strong research culture in the country. The aim is to address some of India’s developmental challenges and also provide quality online education in the homes of millions, says Ian Jacobs, president and vice chancellor of UNSW.
 
Jacobs is enthusiastic about the government's keen interest in allowing 100 high-quality international universities to partner with the best institutions in India.
 
“We would like to play a big role as part of the changing education landscape in the country, offering high-quality education at scale,” he emphasised.
The Australian university has recently announced a PhD scholarship programme for students from state universities in Maharashtra. As part of an MoU signed with the Maharashtra government, UNSW will offer 20 PhD scholarships every year to high-achieving students from the state universities to advance joint research and knowledge exchange.
 
The university has seen a steady flow of enrolments from meritorious Indian students over the past few years, with several of them availing the Future of Change scholarships.
