INDIA, POISED TO BECOME AS AN ASIAN EDUCATION HUB

Indian government has announced that it aims to increase its international student enrolment from 47,500 students to 200,000 students by 2023. If achieved, this will quadruple India’s foreign student numbers in the span of five years – an ambitious target to say the least.

The programme comprises a series of integrative initiatives aimed at branding India as an affordable education hub for Asian and African students, and it was announced last week with delegates from more than 30 countries in attendance. The Study in India programme is jointly administered by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Ministry of External Affairs, Ministry of Home Affairs and Ministry of Commerce and Industry.

Key target countries for Study in India include Nepal, Vietnam, Kazakhstan, Saudi Arabia, Nigeria, Thailand, Malaysia, Egypt, Kuwait, Iran, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Bhutan, and Rwanda, and the Indian government plans to invest substantially in outreach activities to students across these markets.

15,000 new seats and fee waivers.

As part of the Study in India campaign, India will now reserve 15,000 spots a year for international students to study in the country’s top 160 universities and colleges. These institutions include IITs and IIMs, National Institutes of Technology (NITs), and other institutions ranked highly on the National Institute Ranking Framework (NIRF) or which have received the highest ratings by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC). Any spaces allotted to international students that are not filled by the start of a study term will remain unfilled (i.e., they won’t go to domestic students) – an illustration of how serious India is about its bid to attract foreign students.
