We’re bringing Birmingham and India closer together to deliver impactful research, create innovative education initiatives and extend our influence across the globe. From vital cancer research to knowledge transfer on the future of clean-cold technologies, we’re empowering leading academic, industrial and government partners in India to influence policy and tackle global issues.
By forging new connections between Birmingham and India, we’ve created a supportive network for academics, research councils, institutions, government offices, commercial partners and all those interested in building transnational education partnerships with India.
The University’s relationship with India began in 1909 with the first cohort of Indian students attending the University to study for degrees in Mining and Commerce. Since then, the University has provided education to many outstanding Indian alumni.
The India Institute is the focal point of the Birmingham-India relationship, increasing the visibility, impact and coherence of the University’s engagement in India.
