  • The MoU will pave the way for both blended and dual degree programmes at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
  • The blended BSc programme is currently offered across physics, chemistry and mathematics disciplines.
  • The Madras University claims to have received around 300 registrations from students across the country.
Australia’s Melbourne University and Madras University signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to explore teaching and research opportunities. Earlier this year, both the universities rolled out a blended Bachelor of Science degree (BSc) programme.

“The MoU will enable the two universities to continue the programme collaboration while also investigating how students, faculties and researchers can benefit through possible joint PhD opportunities, knowledge sharing for early to mid-level researchers, mobility options, workshops as well as study visits and staff exchanges,” the statement says.

The MoU paves the way for joint teaching programmes, both blended and dual degree programmes at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels in science, humanities, arts and social sciences in the future.

It also will help research scholars with mentorship from global experts, enabling strong cultural and research connections.

“This will give our students exposure to a diverse set of research subjects, with additional tools, experiences and faculty support. We look forward to working together in setting new benchmarks in higher education and enhancing research capabilities for Indian students,” said Prof S Gowri, VC, University of Madras.

The blended BSc programme is offered across the disciplines of physics, chemistry and mathematics. The Madras University claims to have received around 300 registrations from students across the country.

Only 30 students will be selected for the programme based on their application including their entrance score. The selected students will commence the course from September 20 this year. The Roaster system, as offered by Tamil Nadu government, will be duly followed.

“We continue to work together on our high-quality BSc Blended programme to explore how this could work in the humanities and social sciences, and to investigate additional flexible delivery models to suit students’ needs,” said Professor Michael Wesley, deputy vice-chancellor (International) at the University of Melbourne.

Together, both institutions aim to initiate strong and sustainable Transnational Education (TNE) and Transnational Research (TNR) programmes.
