Students of Nagpur University (NU) have a golden opportunity to study in United Kingdom (UK) as the university has become a part of an educational agreement between India and United Kingdom. Delegates are to visit various colleges in the coming week in order to inform students about this new partnership between the countries that can work to their advantage. To spread further knowledge and awareness, a forum was organized by the British Deputy High Commission and was attended by the UK delegates and principals/directors of various colleges. The event was chaired by Nagpur University vice-chancellor Vilas Sapkal along with trade and investment adviser of UKTI John Bunter.
Shri Sai Shikshan Sanstha secretary Salil Deshmukh, UK Trade and Investment (UKTI) director Barry Lowen, and joint director of technical education for Nagpur division Gulab Thakare also shared the dais. UKTI is the overseas business arm of the British government promoting overseas trade and high value investments. The partnership includes institutions like University of East London, University of Glamorgan, and Central School of Speech and Drama that would admit Indian students. Bunter said, "along with this partnership, several potential partnerships will also be made." Several pacts were inked between institutions of the two countries and discussion is taking place involving further delegations, he added. "This partnership will benefit both India and UK. India offers best innovations and academics and UK wants to be India's partner of choice," Lowen said. India is a young country where most of the population is below 25 years of age and the youth of India is always striving for success, he added. According to him, both the countries were helping each other in broadening the horizons. Sapkal stated, "Such meaningful collaborations and exchange of ideas will strengthen the infrastructure, human resource as well as research." This event followed a highly successful visit to UK in October last year when UKTI took 23 delegates from 14 educational institutes from Pune, Nagpur and Aurangabad to London and York. The Indian delegation visited 30 UK universities for educational collaborations. MoUs were signed between Staffordshire University and AISSMS, Pune, Bournemouth and Poole College and MIT Pune, and University of East London and University of Northampton with MIT, Aurangabad. NIT Graduate School of Management has taken this step towards diversifying the scope and field of education. The United Kingdom (UK) has partnered with India to educate Indian students in their own country. Y Mohit Kumar, director of NIT Graduate School of Management, is the man behind the delegation. He was invited by the UKTI as a part of education delegation to represent Nagpur.
