Let us take a look at the various reasons why India stands out as one of the most preferred destinations for education by students from various foreign countries.
India has always been an enticing education destination for students from all over the world. This exotic country possesses one of the oldest civilizations and richest cultural heritages on the planet. It has experienced a multifaceted socio-economic development after independence. Let us take a look at some of the key points that attract students abroad to travel to India.
Eminent Vedic Values
India is the birth place of Vedic values that educated the world about civilizations and further cultivated studies like Astronomy, Mathematics, Astrology, Physics, and organic and inorganic matters. Dick Teresi, a celebrated author and co-author of numerous books, once said, "The Indians came closest to modern ideas of atomism, quantum physics, and other current theories”. He also quoted "The Rig-Veda is the first Indian literature to set down ideas resembling universal natural laws.” The history of India’s uniqueness is treasured in many books and studies.
The Vedic period in India has enlightened us with priceless inventions and concepts that till date remain proved and accepted. Marked by abundant spiritual, cultural and scientific knowledge, this point in time is indeed the most intellectual phase in Indian history. Such remarkable intellect and innovation is worth exploring and experiencing. The traditional system of learning inherits the essence of Vedas and manifests the quintessential form of education in India.
Rich Cultural Base
“Athiti Devo Bhav”, Guest is God. Since ages, India has followed the tradition of welcoming its guests. This is the highest form of welcome witnessed by foreign students since the times of Nalanda and Taxila (now in Pakistan). A major seat of learning for thousands of years, the country was home to Takshashila - the first university in the world. India always has been doted as one country which has emphasized on the need of imparting quality education worldwide. Known for its skilled and experienced teachers, institutions in India systematically impart knowledge and attract a number of foreign students to study topics such as management, engineering, law, literature, logic, grammar, etc. Our institutions are globally acclaimed for their quality and experienced learning.
Albert Einstein once said, "We owe a lot to the Indians who taught us how to count, without which no worthwhile scientific discovery could have been made".
Cosmopolitan and Tolerant Environment
The overwhelming unity of Indians reflects a diversity of religions, cultures, customs and languages which itself stands as the pride of the nation. World widely popular for its traditions and religions, India definitely provides a spectacular mix of languages, religion, dance, music, architecture, food and customs that differ from place to place, state to state. Here, at Sharda we promote religious and inter-continental mix and avoid linguistic barriers thus paving way for a strengthened bond among the students on the campus. With several cultural fests and competitions on the campus, our aim is to bridge the international gap by bringing out the creativity among the students.
The geographical location of India has also given it a chance to develop a unique culture in the Indian subcontinent and this uniqueness is a big ‘pull’ factor for students, scholars, researchers and travelers from different countries who get to experience a cultural extravaganza and learn about forbearance of religion. India has an inherent character that amazingly binds everyone to its culture and diverse heritage
Emerging Knowledge Center
Known as the communication center, India has vast potential to emerge as the regional education hub and attract international students to pursue higher studies all across the world- major reason being India’s modern and forward thinking approach. English being the common language is another factor which draws huge applications from foreign students. Also, India’s popularity with multinational companies has added a feather in its cap. According to Peter Drucker, "India has become a power house very fast. The technical graduates of India are as good as any in the world. Also, India has 150 million people for whom English is their main language so India is indeed becoming a knowledge center".
Studying in India has several benefits attached to it. The cost of education in India is quite low as compared to many other countries plus the institutes are also well known worldwide to provide quality education. In addition, one can also study some unique courses that were discovered and enriched by the traditional knowledge system of India like Ayurveda, Sankrit, Yoga and Hindi. Students can apply for anything from medical and engineering courses to applied arts at most of the institutions. Financial Assistance like scholarships, education loans and other monetary aids are also provided to international students studying in India.
Opportunities and Economy
The existing global economic crisis cannot be neglected in today’s scenario. But India is one nation where ardent policies and economic reforms have sustained an impressive growth rate. Our Tata’s, Birla’s and Ambani’s have displayed our economic strength on international platforms. In 2000 where there was no Indian in the Billionaire’s list, 2011 marked the entry of at least 5 Indians in the list.
Today India is one of the most favoured destinations for global investments. There are several business opportunities in India. Presence of vibrant trade links with SAARC (South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation which include nations like Bangladesh, Bhutan, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.) nations is another advantage.
Global players such as Daimler Chrysler, General Motors, Ford, LG Electronics, Samsung, Sony, Amway, Tupperware, Pepsico, McDonald's, IBM, Oracle, Microsoft, Aviva, Nortel and Nokia have immensely benefitted from their operations in India and have several expansion plans for the country by setting up their manufacturing bases in India, thus increasing the existing production capacity, establishing research centres in India, etc.
