Apollo University collaborates with a UK-based university

The Apollo University (TAU), a division of the Apollo Hospitals Group, and the University of Leicester (Leicester) have formed a program collaboration to enhance cooperative research and education links between the UK and India.

Through this partnership, a computer science program is initiated, with students spending two years at TAU in Chittoor, AP, and then moving on to the University of Leicester, UK, for their last year of study and graduation. With their curriculums collaboratively developed, Apollo University and the University of Leicester want to train 120 students for the first cohort. Applicants must successfully finish Class 12 or its equivalent with Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics as majors from a recognized Board and earn at least 50% in these subjects throughout their intermediate or certificate courses.

“Our partnership with the Apollo Hospitals Group reiterates our shared vision around using the power of education and research to bring real-world changes, particularly in the areas of healthcare and data science,” said Professor Henrietta O’Connor, provost and deputy vice-chancellor of the University of Leicester. Using this ability via our partnership with Apollo and an international degree program that has the potential to completely change healthcare in the future is very exciting.

Apollo University’s vice chancellor, professor Vinod Bhat, said that the institution has always been a leader in providing high-quality training in scientific and medical research. “I see this partnership as a unique chance to completely transform the higher education market. “My vision for this partnership goes beyond academic boundaries, as I am at the forefront of healthcare transformation,” he said.
