Indian universities like the University of Madras, Savitribai Phule Pune University (SPPU), and Gandhi College of Technology and Management will work jointly with the University of Melbourne to provide Indian students with the option to pursue a new Bachelor of Science Dual Degree.

According to the official statement, Indian students who enroll in the new dual degree programme will have the option of earning their degree both domestically and overseas, spending the first two years of study in India and the next two years in an Australian campus.

Announcing the degree, the University of Melbourne Duncan Maskell said, “The University of Melbourne is delighted to continue expanding our programs to give more Indian students direct pathways to complete their studies.”

“With demand for our existing programs continuing to grow, we’re pleased to be working together with prestigious local universities to be part of the internationalization of education in India and at home in Australia.”

‌‌The inaugural Bachelor of Science Dual Degree will be offered jointly by the three Indian universities, however, discussions are currently being held for more universities who want to start offering the dual degree in 2024, the official statement noted.
