On 3 March 2023 India and Australia signed a mechanism for mutual recognition of qualifications of both countries. This agreement recognises Australian bachelor degrees in India delivered in traditional on-campus mode. For delivery in online mode, qualifications will be considered on a case-by-case basis by designated Indian government authorities as with all online degrees conferred from institutions outside of India.

All meeting times are in IST to ensure you’ll be able to attend, as our students find these to be both helpful and enjoyable.
