Australia launches new online database to help Indian students

Australia's Acting High Commissioner Bernard Philip has launched an online database to help Indian students find Australian university courses.

The database will also help the Australian students looking for study opportunities in India.

The database is an initiative of the Australia-India Education Council. It was funded by the Indian University Grants Commission (UGC) and implemented by Jamia Milia Islamia University (JMI).

"This website will be an excellent resource for Indian students seeking to complete part of their degree in Australia, and for Australian students wishing to study in India," said Philip.

"The database can be searched by location, institution or course, which will help students from both countries to find the information they need. I would like to thank UGC and JMI for their leadership in this initiative, which will further reinforce the strong education links between Australia and India," he added.

The database can be accessed at

The website is being launched just before Australian students begin to travel to India under the Australian Government's New Colombo Plan (NCP) in 2015. (ANI)
