In view of the growing interest towards higher education in Australia, Fiona Docherty, Vice-President, External Relations, UNSW will be attending the inaugural event in Bengaluru on August 4th to reinforce the University's commitment towards its Indian students and promote future engagement.
Former Indian diplomat and UNSW India country director, Amit Dasgupta said, "The overwhelming response received during the first edition of the India Open Day encouraged us to return with our second innings. Indian students are increasingly opting for a higher education that broadens their scope of employability globally. In view of the strong response received, UNSW Sydney is offering a September step-in, allowing Indian students who were unable to join the July intake to enrol now. UNSW is the only University in Australia among the Group of Eight to offer a September step-in with the aim of bringing UNSW closer to its Indian aspirants and we are confident that the India Open Days will also play a pivotal role in achieving the same."
