  • The internationalization of higher education between India and the UK
  • Distance-learning or mixed learning courses
  • Student safety and medical assistance

The UK government is working to ensure that current visa procedures are as open as possible as the number of Indian students studying in the UK has been going up. South India, British Council Director Janaka Pushpanathan, discusses why the visa issue rate for Indian students is 96%, which is way above the global average. After the onset of the pandemic, the British Council has been working closely with teachers, caregivers, agents, and counselors in India to consider their fears and questions. Students respect and aspire to a higher education degree from coveted foreign institutions, but, considering the present situation, their issues include the procedure of applying for permits, employability, and health and safety. The survey responses offered a preview of the existing study abroad plans of Indian students: 65% of Indian undergraduates and 59% of postgraduates intending to study in the United Kingdom in 2020/21 said they were not likely to postpone or postpone their plans at all. 80% of Chevening scholars chosen are planning their paperwork for this autumn's journey to the UK. The internationalization of higher education between India and the UK is accomplished by multiple substantive engagements and bilateral collaborations. These include initiatives to further link analysis and development between the two countries, student mobility, and academic exchange. Students are supported by UK universities as they transition to online and mixed learning formats that are supervised by stringent quality assurance standards, supported by the abundance of knowledge and international skills with which the UK HE sector is renowned. Students get access and insight into world-leading academic experts and to engage with a virtual foreign community. A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed recently by the governments of Telangana and Wales to facilitate bilateral science and education exchanges between the two entities. Promoting research, entrepreneurship and creativity, university collaborations, including science and technology, and developing employability and skills among Telangana students are key areas of interest. The United Kingdom-India Education and Research Initiative (UKIERI) is a specific project sponsored by the governments of the United Kingdom and India to improve cooperation between the two countries in the field of education and research. This year, many of the programs are now being delivered electronically due to the pandemic. The UK government has announced that if they move to face-to-face study as soon as conditions permit, new foreign students beginning their degree in the 2020-21 academic year will be able to begin their studies by distance learning and remain eligible for their Tier 4 student visa. The 'Graduate Route' method helps foreign applicants to complete their studies at UK universities with post-study visas for two years (up to three years for Ph.D. candidates), expanding prospects for young international students to develop successful careers in the UK. If students are expected to either resume their current studies or launch a new distance-learning or mixed learning course due to COVID-19, if they reach the UK before 6 April 2021 and finish the final semester of their studies in the UK, they will also be eligible to switch for the Graduate Path scheme on a concessionary basis. The UK higher education sector is working tirelessly to ensure that the physical and mental health of foreign students is prioritized. In order to access any information about their health and safety, students should contact their university directly. Both domestic and foreign students have access to the UK National Health Service. For no upfront cost, foreign students will receive medical assistance if the doctors believe is urgently needed for them. In order to ensure students feel accepted and to help ensure safe social contact, universities around the UK have responded to the development of mixed programs of induction events and activities. Education is an investment that offers financing for a lifespan. The UK higher education industry is aware that the outbreak of Covid-19 has had a huge effect on everyone around the world, especially on students who want to pursue higher education in the UK. The universities in the UK are committed to helping all students from January 2021 who are considering studying in the UK.
