Welcome to Coventry University Group’s India Hub, based in Delhi. Opening in late 2023, the new Hub will be a driving force for collaboration, engaging with government, academia, and industry partners in India to tackle the big challenges facing the global community, such as climate change, economic development and health issues.
The India Hub will offer unique academic opportunities for students and will help the Group to build and strengthen our partnerships in enterprise and innovation. Through the Hub, we will also develop relationships with stakeholders across business and government that will enable us to launch new research projects and deliver impact on a local, national and international scale.
Enterprise and Innovation
Coventry University Group is an innovative group that aims to help industry continue to develop and deliver meaningful change for communities through continuous professional development (CPD) courses, commercial research, IP commercialisation and knowledge exchange activities. This involves transferring research results and skills to businesses, enabling new products, services, and processes to be developed.
Our research focuses on a range of real-world issues including sustainability, disease prevention and cutting-edge engineering. Our new strategy will build on these successes, strengthen our position as an innovative university and will enable us to apply fresh and original approaches to key research challenges. We look to establish joint PhDs and research collaborations by linking Coventry University’s academics with academics from India.
With a wealth of experience in teaching and learning, student mobility, research and enterprise development, Coventry University Group operates globally, having already built several successful multi-disciplinary partnerships. We are seeking to work with other academic institutions who are pioneering, enterprising and entrepreneurial, who share our ambitious international agenda and the same desire to deliver excellence in education.
Education and Student Experience
Our Talent Team supports current students, as well as alumni, with employability and internships. In collaboration with our partners, the Talent Team aims to build the alumni community through digital engagement. Contact us and learn how you could be part of these initiatives.
Our team in the India Hub provides a broad range of skills and capabilities, enabling us to deepen partnerships and build new relationships in India, while providing local knowledge, contacts and expertise to other areas of the Group.
In the India Hub, our policy analysts and business development specialists focusing on both research and enterprise and innovation opportunities will be joined by the existing Coventry University Recruitment and Admissions (CURA) team based in Delhi, who focus on facilitating the recruitment of students from India.
