Victoria University India

About Victoria University India

Victoria University (VU) India is located in the city of Ahmedabad, the largest city in the Indian state of Gujarat. Our dedicated teaching space is within the city office of Ganpat University (GNU).

We offer VU's internationally recognised postgraduate courses to students in India.

Our Australian-Indian dual masters model is one of the first involving an Australian university in collaboration with an Indian university partner. Through our collaboration with GNU, you will graduate with both:

  • an internationally recognised Australian masters degree from VU
  • depending on your study program, a globally accepted graduate diploma or masters degree from GNU, an Indian university recognised by UGC (University Grants Commission).

Dual awards will enhance your further education choices and your graduate employment outcomes.

Welcome to Victoria University India.

You, along with thousands of other students studying VU courses worldwide, are joining a world-class university.

VU is progressive and innovative, with a strong commitment to long-term student success. We are proud to be ranked in the top 2% of universities worldwide and ranked 55 in the Times Higher Education Asia-Pacific University Rankings.

Our internationally recognised postgraduate awards will provide you with the skills and professional capabilities you need to be successful in the 21st century. Our graduates make significant contributions to their employers and communities, right around the world.

Our colleges, and our academic and student services, are of the highest quality. Your VU India qualification is the same award we deliver in Australia.

I participated in an official delegation to sign a renewed academic cooperation agreement with Victoria University in Melbourne on 31 May 2017, led by Ganpat University Patronin- Chief Shri Ganpatbhai Patel, and President Shri Anilbhai T.Patel.

We are delighted to see the expansion of our earlier cooperation, which started in 2010 with a pilot collaborative award in Enterprise Resource Planning Systems. The students who completed that program have launched successful careers in India and globally.

This international partnership attests to Ganpat University’s mission to focus on academic excellence and industrial relevance in education and research.
