Cabinet approves MoU signing between India, UAE on education



The Union Cabinet has given a nod for Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to be signed between Ministries of Education in India and UAE on cooperation in the field of education.

The objective of the MoU is to further strengthen educational collaboration and widen the scope of engagements. “A MoU was signed in 2015 with the UAE in the field of education which expired in 2018. In 2019, at a meeting between Education Ministers of the two countries, the UAE side proposed to sign a new MoU. The new MoU incorporates changes brought in by the new National Education Policy 2020 in India’s education ecosystem,” an official statement said.

It aims to promote exchange of information education, capacity development of Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) teaching staff, facilitation of academic collaboration between Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in both the countries for offering twinning, joint degree and dual degree programmes and any such other areas agreed upon.

It will increase academic mobility between India and UAE besides facilitating exchange of information in order to promote mutual recognition of these qualifications.
