UGC has announced regulations for establishment and operation of campuses by foreign universities in India. According to the regulations, foreign universities can collaborate to set up campuses in India, provided they meet eligibility criteria individually. Foreign universities setting up campuses will be required to seek prior approval from UGC before starting new courses.
Foreign universities intending to establish campuses in India should have secured a position within top 500 in global rankings. Foreign universities can set up more than one campus in India, and they need to make separate applications. UGC said campuses of foreign universities in India will have autonomy to recruit faculty and staff as per their recruitment norms. Foreign university campuses in India cannot offer online courses, or distance learning.
