As 2024 approaches, the landscape of education is on the verge of a revolutionary period propelled by progressive policy reforms. With a focus on digitisation and official recognition of online education, the sector is poised for a paradigm shift. Government initiatives, such as the NEP 2020, to improve the quality and accessibility of educational content, combined with the acknowledgment of online platforms as critical to expanding enrollment, are driving change.


Furthermore, encouraging international colleges to build campuses in India and facilitating collaborative projects with domestic educational institutions represent a break from traditional conventions. In this changing environment, the education industry is expected to witness many essential changes in 2024 that will reshape how students learn, educators educate, and educational institutions operate.

Global Collaboration and Exchange Programs: 


While the government encourages international colleges to establish campuses in India, this is a medium- to long-term goal. In the medium future, there is expected to be a push for partnership and exchange programs with foreign institutions, with credit transfers for courses finished in India, and the final stage of education can be completed overseas, leading to a joint or terminal degree from the foreign university.

Focus On Vernacular Technical Education:

Government programs aim to promote vernacular technical education. The Gross Enrollment Ratio can only be enhanced if higher education is conducted in vernacular languages with limited content. 


Generative AI and Pedagogical Innovations: 

This technology is not going away. Dynamic institutions will take the initiative to alter their teaching and assessment methodologies as soon as feasible to include the benefits of AI-based tools. Students have already used it, and it is now up to educators to catch up. Shortly, this will be a multi-stage process.

Skill-Based Curriculum Reforms: 


As employer demands shift, skill development becomes increasingly important in all sectors. More well-known and equipped educational institutions will need curriculum improvements that promote critical thinking and problem-solving abilities. More support for specific skill-building in the form of ITI-like institutes for coding and software development to generate employment in Tier II and III cities, as well as the rural hinterland, is likely to be a government priority.

Digital Integration and E-Learning Platforms:

The government's campaign for digital literacy and equal access to online and offline education, combined with increased smartphone availability, will significantly change in 2024. Expect the government to increase its efforts to develop e-learning platforms with interoperability characteristics similar to other digital public infrastructure and encourage major government-funded organisations to create and share material.
