“It will streamline communication and collaboration"

Coventry University has opened a new global hub in New Delhi to support potential international students.

The office will house more than 70 employees in India to support Coventry University Group’s admissions, recruitment and partnerships portfolio in India and the region.

It will also serve as a base for business development personnel serving the research and enterprise portfolios, and for visiting researchers and academics from the UK to further improve research links between both countries.

The office is located at the HT House in Connaught Place, opposite the British Council India.

Professor John Latham CBE, vice-chancellor of Coventry University, said:

“The India Hub represents the university’s long-term commitment to build strategic collaborations in India and throughout the region and will be an important addition to Coventry University Group’s international presence.

“It will streamline communication and collaboration between the university and organisations in Indian education, business and government.”

Its new base in India is Coventry University’s sixth around the globe, joining those in Brussels, Dubai, Africa, China and Singapore.

These hubs act as Coventry University Group’s business development centres, serving key regions and developing collaborative relationships that further its work as an economic development partner for governments and public and private sector organisations.

Michael Houlgate, deputy director at British Council India,?said:

“We’re delighted to see the deepening engagement between the higher education sectors of both our countries, underscoring the continuing progress in education collaboration as laid out in the India UK 2030 Roadmap.

“Our heartiest congratulations to Coventry University Group on this new initiative.”

India is a key market for the university, which already recruits thousands of Indian students every year to its campuses in Coventry and London.

India’s large and skilled talent pool, young population and thriving research sector make the UK ideal for the group’s collaborative working approach.

Richard McCallum, group CEO of the UK India Business Council, added:

“At UKIBC we encourage UK universities to treat India as a strategic partner, not just a market.

“Nothing demonstrates this more than setting up in country to develop a deeper collaboration with education institutions, business and governments.

“Congratulations to Coventry University on the launch of its India Hub, which is a path-breaking initiative.”

“I applaud the university for its commitment and wish Coventry University every success with its ambitious goals in India.”

Coventry University has strong links to the private sector in India, working with organisations such as KPIT and L&T Technology Services.

It has also signed a research-focused memorandum of understanding with the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay and GITAM University.

The India Hub is now in talks with several major organisations in the country and region over potential collaborations – including skilling opportunities in the aviation and healthcare sectors.
