Indian students who enrol in the new dual degree will be able to complete their degree at home and abroad
The University of Melbourne will offer Indian students the opportunity to complete a new Bachelor of Science Dual Degree. The university has partnered with the University of Madras, Savitribai Phule Pune University and Gandhi Institute of Technology and Management (Hyderabad).
Indian students who enrol in the new dual degree will be able to complete their degree at home and abroad, spending the first two years studying in India, followed by two years on campus in Melbourne.
Once they successfully complete their studies, Indian students will be awarded a Bachelor of Science from the University of Melbourne and they have the option for their local institution to award the degree.
In addition, Indian students can study up to six masters subjects in their final year so they can fast-track a masters degree from a suite of disciplines including science, engineering, public health and data science.
University of Melbourne Vice-Chancellor Duncan Maskell announced the dual degree in Mumbai while travelling with the Prime Minister of Australia’s Trade Delegation to India.
