LSR’s expansion of Australian partnership
LSR College (Lady Shri Ram College) for women, a part of the University of Delhi, is planning on expansion of its partnership with an Australian University. The college will complete 20 years of partnership with La Trobe University, in 2016. To honor this association, the Australian partner will host an LSR academic for a professional development program of one month duration.
The Associate pro-vice chancellor Amalia Di Iorio said, "The academic will visit the university’s School of Humanities and Social Sciences where she will undertake various roles to understand academic life at an Australian university.”
New PhD programme
The La Trobe University is going to fund a PhD position for research on the Anti- diabetic advantages of Indian culinary herbs, at Mysore University. The plan permits students to work under joint supervision at both institutions. This is a community venture through which students gain dual experience of both universities.
The university recently announced the launch of a third intake in November, considering the Indian academic calendar. February and July are the two other intake months.
