India-UK sign pact for mutual recognition of educational qualifications



India and the United Kingdom (UK) have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to officially recognise higher education qualifications in each of the countries. This will pave the way for greater mobility of Indian students to take up postgraduate courses in Britain.

British universities and a leading network of Indian students and professionals have hailed the ‘landmark’ agreement, calling it a long-awaited achievement in bilateral ties. As per the recent statistics, in 2020-2021, UK welcomed 84,555 Indian students and India is a popular study abroad destination for UK students.

The MoU was signed on Thursday as part of the India-UK Enhanced Trade Partnership agreed by Prime Ministers Narendra Modi and Boris Johnson.
