Note: This content was originally published by the Australia India Institute in August 2020

Victoria’s India Strategy: Our Shared Future prioritises the relationship with India, including international education, Victoria’s largest services export sector. As outlined in Victoria’s International Education Sector Strategy, a vibrant international education sector is central to positioning Victoria as Australia’s Education State.

Victorian universities are well placed to leverage their longstanding international education and online learning experience to achieve success in international markets.

This policy brief reflects the outcomes of the Online Learning in Higher Education Industry Sector Roundtable conducted in India in February 2020. This event involved 62 participants from Australian universities, Indian higher education institutions (Indian School of Business, Amity Online and Institute of Management Technology Centre for Distance Learning, Ghaziabad), Australian and Indian government authorities, KPMG, Rajasthan Royals and Indian private MOOC platform, UpGrad.

Together with desktop research, the roundtable participants have helped shape the three recommendations offered in this Policy Brief. These would see Victorian universities increase the supply of online higher education content in India through partnerships with relevant Indian and global platforms and by making available a targeted package of offerings reflecting India’s price and brand sensitivities, complemented by a faculty professional development program.
