Cambridge University today said it was strengthening partnerships with Indian institutions, but was not looking to establish a campus in the country. "The University is not considering opening up a campus in India," Vice-Chancellor, Sir Leszek Borysiewiczh, told reporters here. Ruling out a compromise on student’s intake from India, he said there was no possibility of inking tie-ups with undergraduate institutions in the country. However, projects have been taken up to build partnerships with Indian institutions, he said.
Cambridge University, which has tie-ups with five institutes here for Post Graduate programmes, was "getting rich talent from India." At present, the University had 270 active projects with Indian institutions and the focus was on areas of excellence. 244 students of Indian origin were pursuing higher education at Cambridge University, he said. Earlier, Shiromani Gurudwara Parbhandhak Committee (SGPC) president, Avtar Singh Makkar, said as part of an agreement between SGPC and the University in 2009, five Sikh scholars will pursue M. Phil/Ph. d at Cambridge each year. The total expenses, including fee and boarding amounting to Rs. 18 lakh per student per year approximately, will be shared equally by the SGPC and Cambridge University. Two Sikh scholars, Ravpartap Singh from Chandigarh (Legal Studies) and Shinjni Singh from Lucknow (Asian Development Studies), have been selected for the Ph.d programme this year. As other such scholars, they will have to teach in an SGPC-run institution for three years after completing the higher degree, Makkar said.
