Twining program in India is basically a process where students can complete part of their studies in India and the rest in a foreign college or University, with which the students' college has a tie-up. This would be a better idea to get a foreign degree by spending less money than pursuing degrees abroad. It depends on the participating Universities that if an institute abroad wishes to give a degree after a student completes twinning programme from their University then they can award the degree, otherwise the degree will be provided by Indian University. In this article we will give a basic comparison of the fee structure, Indian Universities that offer the twinning program, Foreign Universities that are in Partnership with the Indian Universities, duration of the program in India and in Foreign Universities.
