Collaborative programmes attract talented Indian students

Aspiring students (along with parents) attending awareness programme at JNTU Hyderabad on 9th July 2018.

BTH has a successful collaboration with Indian universities. The concept is called collaborative programmes, which means that enrolled students will have mandatory education both in India and in Sweden to finalize their degree.

This summer, 154 students are admitted to the collaborative programmes. 50 students are enrolled in the 5-year integrated double degree Master’s programme (3.5+1.5), offered at Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University in Hyderabad. These students will come to Sweden in 2022 to undergo 1.5 years of master’s study at BTH.

104 students are enrolled in the double degree Bachelor´s programmes (3+1) with state universities of Andhra Pradesh. These students will come to BTH in 2021 for one year of studies. After completion they will have the possibility to continue to a Master´s degree.

Gurudutt Velpula is the director of the India initiative at BTH.

– The students in the collaborative programmes secured admission on competitive basis and the majority of students have grades more than 9/10 in their previous studies. Some of the admitted students are also standing among the top 5 per cent of the available talent pool in India, Gurudutt Velpula explains.
