We advise students to be cautious while selecting educational institutions in other countries: Chairman of the UGC

The University Grants Commission of India (UGC India) has issued notices warning students to be selective and cautious when pursuing higher education in other countries. The UGC Chairman, Jagadesh Kumar, recently warned ANI that students must be cautious while choosing education institutions in other areas because they previously encountered issues returning overseas during the COVID-19 epidemic.

We issue notices encouraging students to exercise caution while selecting higher education institutions in other nations. We recently saw our pupils experiencing challenges as a result of the Covid-19 epidemic. They couldn’t return to China to study, according to the UGC Chairman.


UGS addressed the issue of students who study at substandard schools in foreign countries and experience issues with degree equivalence. This limits their opportunities for advancement in their employment as they pursue more education. Another important issue is that when students travel to foreign countries and study at substandard schools, the question of degree parity arises, which can make it difficult for students to continue their higher education or find jobs, according to Mr Kumar.

Concerning the homecoming students from Ukraine, UGC Chairman stated, They’ve also witnessed how 18,000 students had to be flown from Ukraine lately. They have issued a public warning to students to be cautious.
