University of Cork opens centre in India
In an attempt to boost its presence in India, the University of Cork has opened its first centre in the country.
The new office, located in New Delhi will act as a point of contact between the University from Ireland and the Indian students.
Dr. Christopher Shepard, International Coordinator & Vice Chair- India Strategy Group of the University of Cork said,
“This move represents our commitment to build on the success that we have accomplished thus far in attracting the brightest Indian students to UCC. The new office will allow us to increase our capabilities and align with our current and future growth plans. It also will allow potential Indian students and partners to have a point of contact on-ground for any queries or questions that they might have in regards to any aspect of studying at, or collaborating with, UCC. Our push into India is in recognition of the size and opportunity of the market here.”
The new office will be headed by Ms. Minakshi Batra, Director India, who is responsible for the overall promotion of the University of Cork in India and student recruitment on-ground. She will also spearhead the development of collaborative research programs with Higher Educational Institutions and Corporates.
This is Cork University’s fifth office worldwide , which includes centres in New York, Malaysia and China.
Established in 1845, the University of Cork draws over 3,000 students from over 100 countries across the world.
