India is a culturally diverse country with an amazing heritage to boast of. While India has a little something for everyone who visits the country, it also has a lot to offer to the students who leave their home countries in search of quality education.

With access to both a rich history and diversity as well as a rapidly growing region in terms of business and technology, studying in India is very lucrative, whether it’s in the field of Science, IT, History, Humanities, Business, or alternative courses in Arts.

Although the inbound student traffic is abysmal as compared to the outbound student traffic, the former is on the rise thanks to the developmental efforts put in by the government in the direction of education. With elaborate plans to establish more private universities with an aim to offer students new options in research and innovation across disciplines and its course curriculum, and with private sector companies and individuals investing in this space to create opportunities for students to partake specialized courses, the education sector in India is booming.

The influx of international students

There has been a steady rise of foreign students in the last decade or so and last year’s statistics show that the current number of international students has gone up to 42,420! These young souls are finding space for themselves in every part of our country, but mostly make a beeline for cities like Pune, Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore, places that offer a variety of courses for them to choose from, besides also offering them better education standards, exposure to industries, better job opportunities, a salubrious climate, diversity in culture and affordable cost of living and studying.

And while the cultural shock can be quite challenging for international students (first-timers, especially), here are the many reasons why studying in India is still considered an affordable and a rewarding experience.

India is home to approximately 700 universities along with 17,000 colleges, making it the second largest education system on the planet! We already know that the quality of India’s offering in areas like technology and engineering is supreme, however, its offerings are far from limited to these fields. From Philosophy to Psychology, to History to Arts, there is something for everyone.

India’s education system isn’t just vast in its size, but also vast in its academic offerings. Its rich history and it’s trailblazing future ensures every visiting student gets to choose from its available breadth and depth of courses, from the classical (like Medicine, Engineering, Science and Technology) to the cutting-edge (like Humanities, Arts, Creatives, Ayurveda, Music, Media & Entertainment). As mentioned earlier, places like Pune and Bangalore are rich in its plethora of courses that are offered. Several colleges (like Seamedu) offers their courses in both these cities since there is a huge demand for them.

International students in India will find living here extremely cost-friendly. Many of the websites, both for academia and living, offer wonderful discounts for foreign students. Although cost of lodging will depend on your program, comfortable apartments can be rented for $110 outside of major cities and for $200 within those cities making it a bargain for them. A meal is anywhere from $2 to $10 per person, which is a steal and with the huge culinary variety India has to offer, eating becomes a spiritual experience in itself. Tuitions per year also vary from $1000 to $1300 approximately per year depending on whether you are studying in a public or a private university.

  • Diversity and cultural experience

People of India are the most friendly, hospitable and welcoming of outsiders, and as the old adage goes “Athithi Devo Bhava”, which means “The Guest is God”, foreign students can be assured of the fact that they will be treated with kindness and respect. International students love the plethora of opportunities to explore their spiritual side (with India’s magnificent places of spiritual calling), their zeal to travel (India has gigantic mountains and scenic beaches and everything in between), and exploring its magnificent history and beautiful architecture along with the mouth-watering cuisines!

Touted to be amongst the top three economies in the world by 2030, it is no wonder that India as your study-abroad destination will not only provide an excellent opportunity in the here and now, but also an invaluable perspective and understanding of the forces determining the future.
