In a partnership to improve university level education in the country, Victoria University signed agreements with 16 universities in Gujarat, India which has over 70 universities with literacy levels above 78% and the most affordable education packages.
This was done on Monday 17th January to create close academic collaboration with these institutions through strengthening research, online study programs, innovations, sharing of resources, sponsorship and internships.
At the event that hosted representatives from 16 various universities, Prof. Krishna Sharma, the Vice-Chancellor Victoria University, reiterated his commitment to the cause and showed consistency in the memorandum of understanding that was signed with these institutions.
“The partnership will be of help because the National Curriculum Development Centre (NCDC) just noted that the country lacks enough PhD staff and professors to bridge the academia human resource gap,” he said.
Through this collaboration, the quality of education is expected to increase at Victoria University and the agreements are expected to be put in action as soon as possible.
