UK PG degree valid only after bridge course

In order to resolve the impasse over India not recognizing one year post-graduate course from the United Kingdom, the HRD ministry has decided that students will have to undergo a six-month bridge course in India. The ministry has also found a way out to recognize one-year management course done in the UK. Students will have to do a six-month internship in an Indian company.

Seven Indian universities have been shortlisted for the bridge course. However, the bridge course is only for those having done post-graduation in humanities. Bridge courses can be done in Jawaharlal Nehru University, Central universities of Hyderabad, Himachal Pradesh, Gujarat, University of Rajasthan, Kolkata University and Guru Nanak Dev University, Amritsar. "Institutions have been selected with great care. They are situated across the nation," a ministry official said.

The issue of recognition of UK post-graduate degree has been nagging the two nations for long. The UK has been consistently raising the issue with the Indian government. In an interview to the TOI, British PM David Cameron has said he will take it up with the Indian government during his visit here. "We are equally concerned and have been working on a solution for a long time," a ministry official said, adding Indian students from the UK cannot be put to disadvantage. "A six-month bridge course will be good enough to make them eligible for M.Phil. or direct PhD prorgrammes," he said.

Earlier this year when the HRD minister M. M. Pallam Raju went to the UK he had promised an early resolution of the problem. Bridge course solution was offered by the Association of Indian Universities. In the past, bridge course route was resorted to by the Delhi University to accommodate students from Bihar who had done two-year undergraduate course.
