Queries on fake varsities, Ph.D courses dominate UK education exhibition

Among the 113 universities in the United Kingdom, only one is in the private sector. So there is no chance of any university duping them.

This was the surprising information which the aspirants found at the Education UK Exhibition 2011 being held at Taj Krishna. The exhibition will continue on 02 February, 2011 also.

About 1,000 – odd students who thronged the exhibition were asking the question of fake universities in the light of the Tri Valley University issue hogging headlines here.

L. Dhanasekaran, Head, Education UK (South India) of British Council, said that enquiries about the regular courses like management, information technology and engineering were huge but a new addition was the enquiries for the research programmes.

Since a Ph.D. is a must for a teaching job in the Indian universities now, several candidates enquired about the programmes.

The UK offers a flexible Ph.D. Programme wherein students can pursue a part of the course in India as well, thus saving on tuition fee and other expenses.

Mr. Dhanasekaran said that lot of interest is being shown for Biotechnology. To explain students about the opportunities in Biotechnology special seminars were being organised on the subject at the fair.

Seminars

Seminars are also being organised on student visas, studying and living in UK, MBA or M.Sc. – Which is better or Engineering Courses.

Representatives of 56 universities have set up their stalls at the exhibition. The event provided an opportunity for students to share their doubts on various aspects related to higher education in the UK.

Experts from the participating universities explained about their courses, admission requirements, facilities and services.
