The Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) is collaborating with educational institutions from foreign countries such as Singapore, Bahrain and UAE to offer IGNOU courses. Agreements were signed in this direction by the IGNOU International Division for offering the programmes in foreign countries in the presence of Nageshwar Rao, vice-chancellor of IGNOU.
IGNOU will offer courses to educational institutions such as Clascma International Education and Research Centre, PMC Academy Private Limited located in Singapore, Unigrad Education Center WLL, Suqayyah-Manama in Bahrain, and Wisdom Educational Consultant in Abu Dhabi, UAE.
According to the VC, this initiative is a step towards the internationalisation of higher education as mandated in the National Education Policy 2020. During the event of signing the agreement, all the pro-vice chancellors, registrars, and directors were present.
Jitendra Kumar Srivastava, director of the International Division at IGNOU welcomed the representatives of the three foreign institutions. He said that the addition of these institutions to IGNOU will result in increased enrollment of overseas students in the university programmes.
