Owing to the great response from Indian students, a senior delegation from King’s University College is all set to be visiting India to forge new academic collaborations and strengthen existing affiliations.

Spearheaded by Dr. David C. Malloy, President of King’s University College, and Dr. Tracy Cunningham, the Director of Enrolment Services and Registrar, the delegation will be meeting key Indian universities, institutions, stakeholders as well as applicants and their families in New Delhi, Mumbai, and Pune. The tour, hosted by Mr. Sushant Aurora, King’s Recruitment Officer based in India, is designed to support the National Education Policy’s (NEP 2020) aim of internationalising India’s higher education sector and strengthening King’s long-standing links with India.

Expressing his thoughts on the India visit, Dr. David C Malloy, King’s President, said, “King’s University College has a strong focus in bolstering its partnerships with India and to help in capacity building within the education sector. Beyond learning, we identify great potential in this market and would use this opportunity to meet with prospective industry players, that can help boost the social and commercial exchange between the countries.”

The delegation is also slated to co-host with ICS India an Educational Conclave on 14th April with students and parents in New Delhi which will offer an overview of education and job opportunities for Indian students looking to study abroad.

Today the Indian diaspora in Canada nearly makes up about 5.1% of the country’s total population, and the student body has a significant role to play in this, making up for about 40% of international students in Canada.“Canada is an increasingly popular destination for Indians, with 80,270 students pursuing university education here already. This visit, thus, also lines up with the Indians’ inclination and aspiration to study and work in Canada”, highlighted Dr. Tracy Cunningham.

With world-class educators and education facilities, the University is enthusiastic about working with Indian educationalists and institutions to create leaders and innovators of tomorrow. She further added, “King’s has a diverse and exciting community of students from more than 40 countries who come together to learn each other’s cultures, expand their worldwide network and experience all the best aspects of Canadian life in the safe and affordable city of London Ontario. It will be a great chance for students and their families to learn about the opportunities and possibilities of growth in Canada, boosting reciprocal synergies further.”
