Foreign Higher Educational Institutions’ Route to India: Discussing UGC’s Draft Regulations

Nishith Desai Associates’ Webinar

The University Grants Commission published the much-awaited draft regulations for Foreign Higher Educational Institutions (“FHEI”) to set up operations in India. This is in furtherance of the National Education Policy, 2020 (NEP) which envisaged internationalization of higher education in India. With these reforms, the education sector in India is likely to see a revolution.

Vinita joined Nishith Desai Associates’ interactive webinar to discuss the key aspects of the draft regulations. The discussion focused on the impact of the draft regulations on the education sector, the hits and misses in the draft, and the areas that need clarity.
