Are the degrees from UK, Australia and
NZ recognized in India?
Global Reach only represents the Universities that are recognized in the home country where they are established. It is our general understanding that there is a norm of mutual recognition that works. In addition to the Universities being recognised, it is important to understand that the recognition of qualifications work differently. For example, the professional qualifications in Medicine, Law, Dentistry etc are government by regulations of the the various professional bodies as systems vary. The peak body in in India that gives recognition and provides equivalences is ASSOCIATION OF INDIAN UNIVERSITIES (AIU) and its website is
and on its equivalence page it indicates...
|The Association of Indian Universities have signed Protocol/Memorandum of Understanding with the following Countries:
Arab Republic of Egypt
As per the provisions of the Protocol and Memorandum of Understanding, the degrees awarded by the accredited Universities of these concerned countries, for the full time programmes offered on the Campus of the country of origin, are accepted for admission to higher courses by Indian Universities on reciprocal basis. +2 stage Foreign examinations recognized by AIU
The AIU also has a detailed equivalence bulletin dated 2009 on this link
which gives the general guidelines for degrees from around the world.
What does it cost to study overseas?
It depends on the destination, course
and the institution. Generally speaking UK costs about Rs.10 -14
lakhs per annum, Australia
costs Rs. 8 -12 lakhs per annum
and NZ costs Rs. 8-9 lakhs per
annum. There are few scholarships and hence students have to be
largely self-funded or avail loans from Indian banks (Indian
banks applicable for Indian students). Global Reach has tie-ups
with some banks making the educational loans very accessible.
The above costing assumes that the
student is not working part time. Though part time work is not
guaranteed, students are allowed to work part time off campus in
Australia, New Zealand and in U.K. Several students do work part
time and subsidize some of the costs.
Can I work/settle overseas after my
One can always work overseas after any
qualification provided one gets the work permit. However, in
order to settle (or permanent residency) one has to be aware of
Government regulations. Our counsellors can provide the
Government website details and general information. Australia
and NZ give additional point advantage to PR applicants who hold
qualifications from their countries and students with certain
qualifications may be able to apply onshore without leaving the
country after their studies. UK too has recently introduced
certain initiatives regarding working in UK after studies.
