Under the Study in India programme, 160 top institutes of the country will offer 15000 seats to foreign students.

India was once a favourite destination for students from across the world—the ancient universities of Nalanda and Takshashila are ample proof of the same.

India has again opened the doors of its top institutes to students from its partner countries in South Asia, South-East Asia, Africa and the Middle East.

The Government has also launched a portal www.studyinindia.gov.in, for the benefit of foreign students. The portal will serve as a single window for all aspects related to studying in India. Under the programme, Study in India, the top 160 institutes of the country will offer 15000 seats to students from abroad.

India boasts of the world’s third largest higher-education system. With the medium of delivery being English, which is internationally accepted and practised, its popularity understandably multiplies. Also, the country offers value-for-money education, of a globally-competitive standard.

Being the global IT/ITES leader, there is a thriving startup and innovation ecosystem in India. In addition, there is a wide range of courses on offer, from AI to Yoga – from the latest of technologies to the most ancient of sciences.

The Government is also planning a systematic brand-building exercise, identifying quality institutions to receive the students, and create suitable infrastructure and facilitation structures.

India wants to become a prominent centre for affordable and quality education.

The union minister of HRD, Prakash Javadekar says, “Graded autonomy will help educational institutions expand on their own. They can improve their programmes or launch new programmes as per the need and also take in foreign faculty and foreign students.”

The studyinIndia website will be supported by an App and a Helpline number. The website will not only provide information on the latest educational offerings in India, but also facilitate admissions to foreign students and help them make informed choices based on individual aptitudes and career goals.
