The Tamil Nadu State Council for Higher Education (TANSCHE) has decided to introduce a ‘study abroad’ program in association with the British Council with a motive to provide international exposure to the students. Under the proposed program that would be effective from the following academic year, meritorious students from under- privileged backgrounds will be selected and sent to a foreign country for one full semester. This scheme is developed for postgraduate students and teachers from the government science and arts colleges.

Talking about the ‘study abroad’ program, P. Palaniappan, Minister of higher education stated that 5 teachers and 25 students will be benefited in the first batch. The colleges have been directed by the minister to furnish preparatory lists for the program by the end of August. In addition, the minister also announced the commencement of admissions in the 11 new science and arts colleges that were launched earlier this year. Moreover, the colleges in the state have also initiated over 250 new courses, increasing the study options for students.

In order to bridge the gap between the industries and the academia, Dr. T.S Sridhar, additional chief secretary, higher education called for establishing university-business collaboration centers. These centers will focus on training not only the educated lot, but also the uneducated population. This would tackle the issues of unemployment and provide them with employable skills, he said.

In the meeting that was held, the members also discussed on other educational concerns such as, launching of national mission for teachers, system of choice-based credit system and establishment of ‘meta university’ as proposed by the Central government. In addition, the Council also discussed on introducing Tamil in all four semesters of undergraduate courses and making the admission process more transparent. The decision regarding the same will soon be made stated a council member.
