TAIPEI, Taiwan -- Taiwan signed an agreement with India yesterday to enhance cooperation in the field of education, laying the foundation for them to accept each other's academic degrees and certificates.

The two sides agreed to initiate strategies to achieve collaboration on research projects, exchanges of teachers and school administration personnel, cooperation in the field of technology, and mutual recognition of higher education academic degrees and certificates.

The agreement will also help Taiwanese universities recruit more top Indian students, MOE officials said.

The agreement was inked by Chang Chia-yi, chairman of the Foundation for International Cooperation in Higher Education of Taiwan (FICHET), and Beena Shah, secretary general of the Delhi-based Association of Indian Universities (AIU), according to a press release by the Ministry of Education (MOE).

In light of the growing number of Indian students in Taiwan, 80 percent of whom are pursuing doctoral degrees, the AIU said, it attaches importance to the agreement which it regards as a big breakthrough in the efforts to step up higher education exchanges between Taiwan and India, according to the MOE.

It is the fifth agreement of its kind to be achieved by the FICHET. It has forged similar pacts with the Austrian Exchange Service, Japan's Consortium of Universities in Osaka, and the State University System of Florida and Texas State University System in the United States, the MOE said.

During their stay in Taiwan, AIU President M.D. Tiwari, Vice President P.T. Chande, Secretary General Beena Shah and senior advisor Y.P. Kumar, have visited the Hsinchu Science Park, the MOE and several universities.

They have also met with local scholars and Indian students studying in Taiwan, the MOE said.



The governments of the United States and India have acknowledged the positive contribution of cooperation in the fields' education, science and technology, health and development.

A joint statement issued after the first US-India Strategic Dialogue held here, quoted Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Indian External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna, as saying that there was enormous potential for enhancing academic exchanges and collaboration, including through participation of U.S. universities in India.

This was especially true in the context of the ongoing reforms and expansion of the higher education and professional training sectors in India.

Both also welcomed the steps taken towards implementation of the Obama-Singh 21st Century Knowledge Initiative launched last year with the goal of increasing university linkages and junior faculty development exchanges between U.S. and Indian universities. They further welcomed in this context the formation of the India-U.S Higher Education Forum under the auspices of the US-India Business Council.

Krishna and Clinton also reviewed progress on the collaborative effort to establish a Regional Global Disease Detection Center in India.

They acknowledged that the Health Dialogue would provide a framework to discuss ways to accelerate bilateral cooperation and collaborations, including exchanging views on extending affordable healthcare to all sections of the population and to continuing education and training for health care practitioners at all levels of service.

Both governments pledged to enhance bilateral collaboration in controlling and preventing diseases, assuring food and medical product safety, and increasing biomedical and translational research and development with the goal of identifying new and effective methods of medical treatment and ensuring equitable access of such outcomes to the citizens of both the countries.

They also emphasized the importance of science and technology collaboration, both in economic and strategic areas.

They welcomed the progress on the India-U.S. Science and Technology Joint Committee and the endowment.

The United States and India are using their strong common scientific expertise to improve the lives of their citizens, push the boundaries of scientific knowledge, and identify projects to encourage engagement on innovation and entrepreneurship.

They noted the upcoming U.S.-India Joint Committee Meeting in late June to push this agenda forward. Both governments reinforced the need to support science and technology research aimed at innovation.

Krishna and Clinton noted with satisfaction the emphasis that the two governments place on empowerment of women and advancement of their welfare, as an integral part of social and economic development worldwide.

They resolved to place special emphasis on integrating women's interests in all aspects of their strategic dialogue and bilateral cooperation.

Krishna and Clinton pledged to continue bilateral discussions on their identified ongoing initiatives on global issues of common concern through the Global Issues Forum, which is focused on how the world's two largest democracies can form a truly global partnership by working through regional, international and multilateral cooperation.

New Delhi: It is that time of the year again, when students wishing to study abroad, begin frantic preparations to choose the correct university.

On top of their list are colleges in the US, the UK and Australia. Not to be left far behind, now Canada too is aggressively wooing Indian students.

“With the US or UK, universities brand themselves so well that students are attracted to the name, regardless of their experience with the country. In Canada, you always have a relative studying there or have family in the country,” says Sonali Saigal, who studied at McGill University in Montreal.

Canada has a lot of things to offer in its favour. Work permits post completing university is easy to get and applying for Permanent Residency is simple too.

The problem though is colleges there don’t brand themselves aggressively.

“Canadian universities, such as York and Western Ontario, need to build their brands amongst Indian students as they are absolutely fantastic, but sadly Indian students are unaware of their value,” adds Sonali.

Now, most Canadian educational institutions have embarked on aggressive marketing campaigns to encourage students from India.

Maple Leaf, an educational marketing and consulting firm in Delhi, has tied up with at least four institutions in Montreal, Vancouver and other places to promote their brand.

“India is a very big market for these universities and colleges and they are looking forward to it in a big way. They are hiring representatives in India to market their brand who will execute their strategies like recruiting, partnerships, and other things on ground,” said Vinay Chaudhry, the CEO of Maple Leaf Edu Connect.

Kings University College in Alberta has started an online business simulation competition with Indian schools. The winners of the competition are given college scholarships.

“Indian students are outstanding. Their presence will add a lot more diversity and maximum knowledge transfer could take place,” said Marilyn Mason, the Registrar of King’s University College.

The University of New Brunswick (UNB) is planning to host a summer camp themed “Sustainable development as seen through different disciplinary perspectives” for high school students from India in June 2012 with an objective of offering them an opportunity to explore a Canadian pre-university experience.

“At the successful completion of this camp, certificates will be awarded that will be helpful in seeking admission to the UNB,” said Koumari Mitra, a PhD Professor at UNB.

Several Canadian institutions are in joint partnerships with institutes in India, such as IIM-Bangalore and Pearl Academy of Fashion for student, faculty exchange programs and other joint researches.

The Schulich School of Business in Toronto is building its campus in Hyderabad with the help of infrastructure company GMR Group. It will start recruiting students in near future.

These institutions are also getting support from the High Commission of Canada in Delhi.

“In 2010, over 12,000 study permits were issued for Indian students which were nearly thrice that were issued in 2008,”said Simon Cridland, a spokesman at High Commission of Canada.

“Once the student has graduated, he can work in Canada for three years and after the first year, can apply for permanent residence,” Cridland added.

The Canadian government has also sanctioned 10 million dollars to develop and implement an international education strategy that will reinforce it as a country of choice to study and conduct world-class research.

“We are expecting an additional batch of 250 Indian students in September 2011,” said Wendy Curtis, a director of London”s Fanshawe College.

“The number of Indian students in our classes has increased from 5 to 10 and we want it to further increase,” added Mason.

These universities have more reasons for hunting foreign students.

“Given our shrinking demographic and aging workforce, colleges have a significant role to play in training a competitive workforce; for those students who wish to stay in Canada after graduation, a college education is an important step to their competitiveness and Canada’s,” said Curtis.

“Canadian students need to become familiar with the Indian culture and learn how to work with Indian people. We hope to equip our students with the competencies and attitudes to do business with India,” she added.

Indian students returning from Canada too are contributing. ICAN- India Canada Alumni Network, formed in 2010, is building a networking platform for students who wish to study in Canada.

“We realize the value of Canadian education and want to share this with others looking to study abroad,” adds Sonali who is also one of founding members of ICAN.
