This agreement is the first of NCUK's three new market entries coming to fruition in 2014

“In India people are convinced that the best way to progress with their career is through education, but they demand both quality and value for money”

Indian students hoping to study in the UK will now be able to complete the Pre-Masters Programme at Chopras Institute of Professional Education (TCIPE) centres in Bangalore and Delhi, allowing them to progress to a Master’s degree at one of NCUK’s 11 universities.

TCIPE is currently recruiting for its first intakes in March and May, and will also offer NCUK’s International Diploma in Business from September onwards. NCUK hopes to recruit over 100 students across India in the next two years, a spokesperson told The PIE News.

The consortium plans to expand into other cities in India including Mumbai, Pune and Chennai (based on demand) over the next few years.

This agreement is the first of NCUK’s three new market entries coming to fruition in 2014, along with a return to the Malaysian market and the opening of its first centre in Latin America.

Dr Kenneth Gill, Chief Executive of NCUK, explained that NCUK is witnessing growing demand for career-oriented programmes.

“Smart people are now realising that in 2014 they need to differentiate themselves in the employment marketplace and that a higher degree does exactly that,” he said.

“NCUK together with TCIPE will offer Indian students a cost-effective way to gain this advantage and enhance their skills in the global employment market.”

Naveen Chopra, Chairman The Chopras and The Chopras Institute of Professional Education, added: “In India people are convinced that the best way to progress with their career is through education, but they demand both quality and value for money.

“At TCIPE we have a great track record of providing both, and with the guaranteed progression on completion that NCUK offer we think we have a winning product for Indian students.”
