University of Melbourne and three Indian Universities introduce a combined BSc Dual Degree Program
Students from India who enroll in the new dual-degree program will have the opportunity to complete their degrees in both India and Australia. The program structure involves two years of study in India, followed by two years at the Melbourne campus.
In collaboration with the University of Madras, Savitribai Phule Pune University, and Gandhi Institute of Technology and Management (Hyderabad), the University of Melbourne will introduce a new Bachelor of Science Dual Degree program for Indian students.
As part of the new Bachelor of Science Dual Degree program, Indian students will have the opportunity to complete their degrees both in India and Australia. The program requires students to spend the initial two years of their course in India, and the remaining two years at the Melbourne campus.
Upon completion of the program, students will receive a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Melbourne, and they will also have the option to receive a degree from their local institute. This announcement was made today by the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Melbourne, Duncan Maskell, during an event in Mumbai.
According to an official statement, Indian students will be able to study up to six master’s subjects during their final year of the dual degree program, allowing them to accelerate their progress towards a master’s degree in fields such as science, engineering, public health, and data science.
The official statement states that “The first partners in the Bachelor of Science Dual Degree program are the University of Madras, Savitribai Phule Pune University, and Gandhi Institute of Technology and Management (GITAM). Other colleges are currently being approached about starting to offer the dual degree in 2024.”
