Higher education institutions (HEIs) such as universities and colleges are in the second year of implementing the National Education Policy (NEP). Many discussions and debates are being held on whether a paradigm shift is possible in the decades-old classical system of higher education with the implementation of NEP. But the new policy is likely to cause significant changes in the education system that require academic commitment from all stakeholders.
Indian students make up a sizable proportion of those studying in institutions worldwide. Furthermore, NEP encourages foreign institutions to establish campuses in India. The consequences of this policy are bound to impact both the quality and quantity of students. It also aims to achieve the set goals with spirit and intent by comprehensively prioritising action points, which entails careful planning, monitoring, and collaborative implementation, timely infusion of necessary funds, and careful analyses and reviews at multiple implementation steps.
