Deakin to open Indian campus

Australia's Deakin University will become the first foreign university to open an international teaching campus in India.

The campus will be located in the smart business district of GIFT City (Gujarat International Finance Tec-City) in Gujarat.

Deakin will offer postgraduate courses aligned with the needs of the digital economy, including a Master of Cyber Security and Master of Business Analytics. The campus offers an alternative for Indian students who cannot afford to travel and live in Australia to study.

The University of Wollongong is also on track to open an Indian teaching base offering courses in IT, STEM, business and FinTech later this year.
