The Indian Education system is on the road to a fast growth. The current higher education participation percentage is 18% which is expected to rise 30% by the year 2020. The Central Government has set this target to make Indian higher education impeccable, which seems achievable going by the new policies being introduced.
Indian education has some key and pivotal points which attract the foreign students. The top two standout features of Indian Education system are the rich cultural embellishment and the close relationship between a student and a teacher.
Student immigrants are also attracted to study in top institutes of India because of the affordable fee structure. The education fees is remarkably cheap and the living expenses are also less. The Indian sub-continent is one of the countries where the cost of living is low. The accommodation price, eating expenses, and the cost of education can be easily managed.
The point is substantiated by this student testimonial which featured in this article published by a Nepali Daily, The Himalayan Times. The Nineteen-year-old student named Shyam Kishore Shah from Baneshwor said in an education fair, “I’m going to join Sharda University in India for BE.” He gave a reason for joining International studies, “I heard there is good accommodation and environment for students and an affordable fee too in that university.”
Another reason is that in India, one gets welcomed with tender hospitality and great cultural warmth. An international will be amazed by the number of languages spoken by people of so many different religions, trying their best to negotiate their differences and respect them. The adage of ‘Atithi Devo Bhava’ is followed in its true spirit where most of the citizens are helpful and cordial.
Diversity in India is unparalleled. The number of places that an outside student coming to India can explore is enormous. From cold mountains to the humid deserts and plain terrains; the subcontinent has something to offer to every person. North, South, East, West – All the four parts of the country have different cuisines and no matter what part of the country a student stays, he will get a good meal at easy prices.
There are also scholarship programs offered by various organizations in India. The Government of India has plans for scholarships to higher education. Almost every Indian College, Government or private, offers valuable scholarship programs to the deserving students.
All these facets make India a fitting destination where the International students can plan their higher studies. Before enrolling oneself, it is advisable to check the university ratings, fee structure and the course details. This will ensure that at the end of the program, one is satisfied with the time, money and the energy invested.
