NEW DELHI, March 9, 2023 — Deakin University, Australia, says it has created history by spearheading a pioneering initiative to establish the world’s first-ever international branch campus in India.

“This bold move is a testament to the university’s unwavering commitment to providing world-class higher education to students worldwide while simultaneously elevating Australia’s reputation as a global academic leader. With this groundbreaking initiative, Deakin University will propel its ‘in India, with India, for India’ philosophy of engagement to exciting new territory, support the ongoing development of the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020, and further strengthen the Australia-India education partnership,” an announcement from Deakin said.

At an event in Ahmedabad, Anthony Albanese MP, Prime Minister of Australia, lent his distinguished presence to this initiative led by Professor Iain Martin, Vice-Chancellor of Deakin University. Acharya Devvrat, Governor of Gujarat; Bhupendrabhai Patel, Chief Minister of Gujarat; Deakin’s Chancellor John Stanhope AM; Mr. Sudhir Mankad, Chairman of GIFT City; and Ms. Catriona Jackson, CEO of Universities Australia, joined the occasion.

Deakin’s world-class course offerings on campus will initially include the Master of Cyber Security and Master of Business Analytics before expanding to degrees from the faculties of Science, Engineering and Built Environment, and Business and Law.

Anthony Albanese MP, Prime Minister of Australia, said, “It gives me enormous pleasure to acknowledge that Deakin University will be the first university to establish a branch campus in India ever. It is quite an achievement! It is an exciting beginning for stronger educational, commercial, and cultural relationships.”

Deakin will operate the international branch campus with the standards and requirements equivalent to those at the home campus in Australia. The courses offered will be identical to what is currently being provided by Deakin in Australia. Students will receive the same standard of higher education as at Deakin in Australia. Academic standards will be based on Deakin’s standards frameworks and manuals and aligned with the national accreditation body in Australia, “Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency” (TEQSA).

Deakin’s commitment to engagement has opened doors for global collaborations and partnerships, and its pioneering efforts have set a benchmark for other institutions to follow.
