University launches new hub in India to form partnership

Coventry University Group has strengthened its ties with India through the opening of a Global Hub in central New Delhi.

The Hub will accommodate over 70 staff members and will help to improve Coventry University Group’s admissions, recruitment, and partnership initiatives in India and the wider region.

It will also serve as a hub for business development personnel focusing on research and enterprise portfolios, as well as hosting visiting researchers and academics from the UK.

Michael Houlgate, Deputy Director at British Council India, said: “We are 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.”

Situated at the HT House in Connaught Place, opposite British Council India this marks the sixth addition to Coventry University Group’s global hubs.

Other locations include Brussels, Dubai, Africa, China, and Singapore.

Richard McCallum, group chief executive officer at UK India Business Council, said: “At UKIBC we encourage UK universities to treat India as a strategic partner, not just a market and nothing demonstrates this more than setting up in the country to develop a deeper collaboration with education institutions, business and governments”.
