NEW DELHI  , Sept. 27, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- On the occasion of 75 years of India's Independence, Deakin University, Australia has announced a new strategic engagement initiative in India: DEAKIN UNIVERSITY HUBS.

Deakin was the first international university to establish its presence in India in 1994, and over the last two years, through its office in New Delhi has set up innovative models of engagement to boost learning opportunities for students in India. Students can now commence the first part of their studies with a Deakin partner institution in India and then transfer to a Deakin campus in Australia for the second part of their educational journey.

DEAKIN UNIVERSITY HUBS will act as the central point of all engagement activities, alongside strategic partners OP Jindal Global University, Symbiosis International University and Chitkara University. This initiative will enhance collaboration and deliver on the National Education Policy's goal of the internationalisation of education.

The announcement was made in the presence of Shri Dharmendra Pradhan, Hon. Minister of Education and Minister of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, Government of India at Deakin University and Tata Consultancy Services' international conclave in New Delhi.

Shri Dharmendra Pradhan, Minister of Education and Minister of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, Government of India, said, "This event is important for me, for India and the youth of India because academicians, technocrats and thought leaders are here. I'm here to take advice from all of you, I want to align my National Education Policy with the emerging thoughts of the globe."

The conclave brought together thought leaders from academia, government and industry to deliberate on the critical themes around digital transformation, internationalisation of education, international collaboration in research and innovation, skill-based education and global employability.

DEAKIN UNIVERSITY HUBS will be instrumental in establishing innovative models of engagement in higher education, research and training for in-country programs leading to onshore studies in Australia. The Hubs will also offer student support and student mobility between campuses in India and Australia and in-country assistance for internships and connections with industry. Development projects and consultancy initiatives in research, innovation and skills development will also be facilitated through the innovation Hubs.

"I am excited to be back in India and it couldn't have been for a better occasion than the launch of the DEAKIN UNIVERSITY HUBS at OP Jindal Global University, Symbiosis International University and Chitkara University," said Professor Iain Martin, Vice Chancellor of Deakin University.

These hubs will provide valuable opportunities for growth, student mobility and joint research. They will promote enhanced collaboration between Indian institutes and Deakin, leading to academic and research excellence that will be highly beneficial for both countries."
