India to recognize UK Master’s Degree

Usually the Master’s degree courses in UK span for about a Year, while Master’s degree in India is for 2 years. At present India doesn’t recognize the UK degrees, going forward it is most likely that UK Master’s Degree holders will be allowed to pursue higher studies such as M.Phil or PhD. The Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) of India & University Grants Commission (UGC) is working on a plan for mutual recognition of Degrees.

The Association of Indian Universities or AIU is the body responsible for granting recognition or equivalence to foreign degrees in India, and as of today, it does not validate master’s degrees of under two years’ duration. Students returning from UK will soon get the relief and continue their studies in India.

Once the MHRD sets the rules in place to consider UK Degrees, students returning from UK with Master’s Degrees will also be eligible to apply for Government Jobs.
