GCU signs two agreements in India

The agreements will allow exchange visits between the universities

The University has signed Co-operation and Exchange Agreements with India’s Chitkara University Punjab and Chitkara University Himachal Pradesh. 
The agreements outline 3+1 and 4+1 agreements between the universities. The 3+1 model allows students from the third year of degrees in a range of engineering, electronics, civil engineering and computing programmes to complete the final year of their studies in Glasgow. A key feature of the partnership sees students graduate with an award from both GCU and their “home” university, ensuring that they receive recognition for their work in India and globally. 
In addition, Chikara Honours graduates can study GCU Masters programmes in subjects such as Waste Management, International Project Management, Sustainable Energy Technology, Advanced Computer Networking and 3D design for Virtual Environments.
GCU students visited Chitkara University Punjab earlier this year.
David Beeby, GCU’s Vice Principal (International) said: “These agreements between the universities mark the beginning of relationships which we hope will deepen over the coming years. As well as allowing students from Chitkara University Punjab and Chitkara University Himachal Pradesh to continue their studies here at Glasgow Caledonian University, exchange visits between the universities allow our students to immerse themselves in India’s rich culture and build relationships with their peers there.”
