In May 2021, during the Virtual Summit between Prime Ministers of India and the UK, a comprehensive Roadmap to 2030 was adopted for enhanced bilateral cooperation between the two countries. Education forms an important pillar of this roadmap.
With respect to that, A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on Mutual Recognition of Academic Qualifications was signed today between India and UK in the light of India’s National Education Policy 2020 (NEP 2020), the two sides agreed to expand education by agreeing to mutual recognition of academic qualifications.
As per the MoU, the academic qualifications of the Indian and UK students will be recognized by both countries for pursuing higher education in their universities. The signing of this MoU would enable smoother student mobility between the two countries and help in developing stronger institutional collaboration and widen the scope of academic and research collaboration between the Higher Education Institutions of both countries.
