Mumbai: Australia is fast emerging as the preferred higher education destination. As part of its India Strategy, the internationally ranked University of New South Wales (UNSW), Sydney has been focussing on its twin pillars – strong teaching and strong research – to dramatically disrupt the manner in which higher education is delivered.
“We need to anticipate the future, especially when it is evolving at such a rapid pace. What you need is not an evolution of thinking but the revolution of thought, if we are to stay relevant. That is the biggest challenge that higher education needs to accommodate and adjust to,” says Amit Dasgupta, the India country director of UNSW.
Consequently, UNSW has been continuously looking for bright minds to deliver on the demands the future would place before the global community. It has instituted the ‘Future of Change’ awards, exclusively for students from India.
The awards are aimed at attracting and supporting high-achieving Indian students to undertake under graduate or post graduate study at UNSW. The ‘Future Of Change’ awards for the forthcoming July 2018 admissions comprise:
· One full tuition fee scholarship. Open to under graduate and post graduate students.
· Ten $10,000 per annum tuition fees scholarships. Open to under graduate and post graduate students.
· Fifty $5,000 tuition fee awards for one year. Open to post graduate students.
Candidates need to secure admission to the Semester-2 2018 and submit a 2-minute digital video testimonial of how a scholarship at UNSW will help them achieve their aspirations; the last date for applications is May 30, 2018.
