A majority of Indian students are not ready for taking up jobs immediately after graduating from the college, feels Trade and Investment adviser of British Trade Office in Pune John Bunter. He was interacting with the media on Monday, 19th March 2012 on United Kingdom universities visit to the city on April 26-27. He was accompanied by NIT Graduate School of Management director Y. Mohit Kumar. "These renowned universities are interested in offering their programmes in this part of the country which will bridge the existing gap of the students who otherwise join classes to gain additional skills for getting a job," he said.
Justifying his comments, Bunter said UK universities were considered as top class globally and their education would help the students from India tremendously. "The entry of these institutions will help not only the students, but also the colleges," he said. Bunter added that UK universities would offer opportunities, including developing partnerships in areas of under- and postgraduate programmes, staff training, off shore campus, faculty development, student internship or work placement opportunities, licensing or franchising curriculum, student exchange, employability, skill development and finishing school.Kumar, who was part of the Indian delegation that visited the UK universities, stated that a delegation of 15 UK universities' representatives would arrive for the event. "We are planning to invite state minister for higher and technical education Rajesh Tope and other renowned personalities associated with the field of education. The idea is to discuss and establish educational partnerships in the areas of engineering, management, arts, and health care," he said.He said that in October last year, the British Trade Office took a delegation from Pune, Aurangabad and Nagpur to London and Yorkshire. Several British universities and institutes expressed interest in collaborating with the Indian counterparts. Besides Kumar, Ramdeobaba College of Engineering and Management’s principal V. S. Deshpande and VMIT director Jayant Gangreddiwar were part of that delegation. "An outcome of that is a prospective collaborative partnership between our college and Staffordshire University, Stirling University, Wolverhampton University and Bournemouth and Poole College," he said.
