CHANDIGARH, India, July 5, 2022 — India aims to increase the number of international students studying in its Universities from 50,000 to 5 lakh by 2024, said Dr. Rajkumar Ranjan Singh, Union Minister of State for External Affairs and Education. Dr. Singh was speaking at the inaugural ceremony of Chandigarh University’s International Faculty Development Programme (IFDP) 2022 at Varsity’s Gharuan campus.

Organized as part of the Government of India’s initiative for the internationalization of Indian higher education following the New Education Policy (NEP), the IFD program of Chandigarh University is one of Asia’s most significant international Faculty Development programs. More than 123 professors with expertise in 27 fields such as Engineering, Management, Liberal Arts, Medical Sciences, Media Studies, and Applied Sciences will attend the program. They come from 75 international universities in 32 countries, including the USA, UK, Canada, Australia, Germany, Spain, South Africa, Ireland, UAE, Poland, Denmark, Iran, Oman, Philippines, Malaysia, Kenya, Bangladesh, and Nepal. They will participate in this 6-day program which will culminate on July 9.

Dr. Banwarilal Natiya, Chairperson, NRC, NCTE Delhi, Prof Rajeev Ahuja, Director IIT Ropar, Mr. Dharam Pal (IAS), Advisor to the Chandigarh Administrator, Mr. Freddy Svane, Danish Ambassador to India, and S. Satnam Singh Sandhu, Chancellor, Chandigarh University were prominent among those present on occasion.

Speaking on occasion, Dr. Rajkumar Ranjan Singh said that the International Faculty Development Programme organized by Chandigarh University was indeed implementing the Internationalisation of Higher Education.

“With more than 100 Professors from 75 Universities of over 30 countries in attendance, I feel this Programme is a great opportunity for faculty. It will lead to their sensitization about new concepts in teaching, enhance their skills and update them on the latest developments in their field and research methodologies,” Dr. Rajkumar Ranjan Singh added.

“The vision of the Honourable Prime Minister has already started showing great results as India has increased its share of international students from 2.3% to 6% in the Global Student Mobility Market. More than 50,000 students from 164 countries are currently studying in Indian Universities in various programs, and we aim to make that rise to 5 lakh by the year 2024,” he stated.

Singh called for empowering the faculty to conduct innovative teaching, research, and service as they have the autonomy to innovate on curriculum, pedagogy, and assessment within a broad framework of higher education qualifications while ensuring consistency across institutions, programs, and modes in the NEP-2020.

Mr. Dharam Pal (IAS), Advisor to the Chandigarh UT Administrator, called for collaborations among the best institutions in the Tricity, saying that it would bring the best for all and can help achieve Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam in an absolute sense.

Asserting that very few countries in the world have the capability, skills, and opportunities like India, Mr. Freddy Svane, Danish Ambassador to India, said that what India has achieved in 75 years of its independence is genuinely outstanding.

On the first day, the experts discussed the Ideal model of teacher education in Indian conditions, CO2 fixation, Pandemics, Business Resilience, Sustainability, Joint research Proposals with International Organisations, Project Proposal writing, Theatre and Drama, Business Research & Decision Making Leadership in the Global Context, Influencing the Changing Workplace, and many other topics.
