Abstract:

Education in the modern age has become one of the best businesses for all those who have some money and wish to multiply them in a few years time. Globalization and liberalization has made India one of the best destinations for the opening of private colleges and institutes. These institutes’ charge more fees on pretext of providing modern facilities of international standards. Barring a few there are many new and old government universities and institutes in India which have not internationalized their curriculum, university environment and the basic facilities are not matching the international standards, but are attracting the international students-as they are providing education which are economical. This paper will look into some of the old institutions in Delhi, India and some new private one’s that are being established in the last decade primarily for commercialization. The number of international students is large in the government sponsored old universities than new private institutes. Reasons for foreign student’s attraction are obvious in this government universities are- very low fee structure, campus which has friendly culture, diverse community and ethnic background. Even though there is a significant difference in the fee structure of the international students and local students public university, it is still very less as compared to that of the private institutions. The private institutions on the other hand provide the internationalized curriculum, has international scholars as visiting faculties, ambience, culture which is somewhat cosmopolitan.
World is a global village in the current age and India being a developing country has become one of the cheapest destinations for the international students to study professional courses. Also this has a definite impact on the teaching and research in Indian universities. Higher education in developed countries is more expensive for many students. Recently Indian research universities which have adopted the professional courses (mostly in the metropolitan cities which are the hubs for the multinational companies) have become one of the best options available for the international students who are looking for market oriented higher education at low price. This has reduced the research standards of the teaching and research universities and has diverted their efforts to produce professionals according to the need of the commercial market. Mostly new universities and institutes which are opened in collaboration with developed countries are all for the commercialization purposes. The developing countries are the choice for such institutes as these countries have cheap skilled, semi-skilled and unskilled laborers in abundance. Serious researches are not the part of such research and teaching universities and they have become the place for commercial human resource production. Even the researchers are looking for the market value of the research and thus certain themes which are important for the society are neglected at times.
Universities need modification in their curriculum, teaching and academic staff, physical environment, etc to meet the challenges of globalization. Internationalization of curriculum, which is an important part of education also demands the interdisciplinary approach which is very less evident in the government sponsored universities in India. Social Science education needs to break its disciplinary boundaries and students need to be trained to compete in the global market rather than retained locally. Research universities have less intermingling of the boundaries of the disciplines and most of the teaching and research methods is same even today as it used to be before globalization. There is a definite need to modernize the research methods according to the need of the society and market but not the commercialization of university education. Internationalization of education in the Indian universities would bring them at par with the top universities outside India, and at the same time it should maintain the Indian culture and values. This would help to keep it away from commercialization of education.
Through this study I have made an attempt to bring forward the importance of internationalization of curriculum and the need of bringing the policy change in the universities of India. This includes the importance of training of teachers, change of curriculum, and the revision of fee structure for foreign students. This paper will be based on the research work showing the need for policy change to bridge the gap between the curriculums at the universities. This paper is based on survey through interviews of students, faculties, university administration in the few institutions of Delhi.
