Green light for University of Wollongong Indian teaching base

The University of Wollongong (UOW) has received official approval to establish a teaching location in India's Gujarat International Finance Tec-City (GIFT City).

The licence approval was received during a meeting between Indian Prime Minister Shri. Narendra Modi and UOW Vice-Chancellor Professor Patricia M. Davidson earlier this month. It will enable UOW to conduct courses in India, with a plan to start operations by the end of the year. 

In addition to teaching, UOW plans to establish a Global Capital Markets Research Centre focussed on training PhD students and delivery of research with a focus on Indian capital markets.
