British Deputy High Commissioner Bharat Joshi, on Thursday, said there had never been a better time than this to study in the U.K. “This year, there are an unprecedented 700 scholarships for Indian students to study in the U.K. – our largest scheme in the world – including over a 130 of our flagship Chevening Scholarships which Fellowships Programme has brought over 42,000 potential leaders from 130 countries to the U.K. and 400 new part scholarship GREAT awards available worth over £1.5 million,” he said while addressing the U.K. Alumni meet here.
Mr. Joshi said over 2,50,000 Indians studied in the U.K. over the past 10 years. Many U.K. universities were doing research with partner institutions. “New catapult centres bring together top universities and private sector institutions to achieve high-value real-world innovation. The university sector is leading an education revolution,” he added.
Mr. Joshi said the U.K. supported entrepreneurs through a variety of initiatives. “The newest addition is an exciting new initiative called GREAT Tech Rocketships to UK, to identify and help develop the next generation of fast-growing technology companies. This national competition concluded just a few weeks ago. All five winners were from the South including one from Kochi,” he said.
