International collaboration with colleges and universities in other countries will directly help Indian colleges and universities in many ways. The number is constantly increasing who wants to study abroad after +2 or graduation, but these all students are currently dependent on immigration consultants. Though foreign universities are also glad to join hands with Indian colleges and universities directly, but they don’t have direct way of communication. Here International collaboration will help to solve these challenges. 1. Will help students in foreign admissions directly from their current college, 2. To groom students those are not interested to leave native place but want international exposure and 3. Students who are highly skilled and looking for platform to showcase their skills globally. This can be done through various programs.
Whether you’re an engineering student, a practitioner, a sportsman or an artist, international exposure gives an opportunity to expand one’s horizons.
There are lot of benefits for colleges by establishing international relations. Whether colleges are providing 15 days to 1 year exchange program or sending students on international trip, this is great source of branding. Today everyone wants to be global and even Indian government is taking great initiative for foreign placements. Today students are preferring higher education in Canada, Australia, UK and America after +2 standard. Colleges should even start foreign language courses to establish relation with European countries for international conferences, leadership camps, exchange programs and part time work assignments.
Students always prefer to go abroad through direct references rather than consultants. Today every student is confused in selecting right course and university, so only their current colleges can help. Colleges should open in-house counselling office where students will get expert guidance to choose right course to secure their future.
Students are confused to choose right course and university to study abroad. By establishing international relations, Indian schools/colleges can give right guidance without third part support.
Of course students will have direct benefits from association of their current college/university with foreign universities and other private bodies to enhance their overall personality. Every candidate either wants to go abroad for higher education or want global exposure through international conferences and leadership camps. Other hand, organizations from all over the world are offering attractive salary package to students of IITs/IIMs and other top colleges. They also expect candidates with diverse cultural exposure and ability to think out of the box. Collaboration doesn’t mean sending students in foreign colleges for further studies only, it can be anything to provide global platform to groom them.
