In addition, GSF University - the skills and development arm of GSF - will also offer courses to staff to help train them in skills and develop their subject-matter expertise.

"We believe that this GSF partnership will further bolster our existing programmes of student exchange, great academic results, and university counselling to nurture students into global leaders," said Vikaasa's founder, Mr. Biju Sudhakaran. "l am excited to see the positive impact it will have on our student community."
