Kolkata: The National Education Policy will attract international students and make India a global educational hub, Union Minister of State For Education Subhas Sarkar said here on Sunday..
Delivering an address on the country’s initiative in the education sector, organised by the Indian Chamber of Commerce (ICC), Sarkar said, “The National Education Policy will attract international students and make India a global educational hub. This system is an inspiration offering faculty autonomy leading to equitable education. There is a demand for faculty and international students. We should understand these opportunities and the country should work accordingly.”
“The central government is providing a forum to provide assistance to international students and make the necessary reforms. After the formation of the education policy, it is playing a vital role in bringing changes by curating a flexible curriculum and education system. NEP will give a new direction to the education system in India, precisely holistic education,” he added.
He said the current year was crucial for India owing to the “Ek Bharat Sresth Bharat” initiative. “It has a significant role to play in making the education system internationalised and providing high-quality education,” Sarkar iterated.
He said the union government’s mission was to make India a superpower in the education sector by providing assistance to global destinations, and offering premium education at an effective cost.
“Today, India not only has the potential to be the knowledge centre of the world with the highest number of educated youths but the skill capital to take our country forward, which could be accomplished by providing global-scale education,” he added. UNI
