AIMING FOR HIGHER EDUCATION? WHY NOT ‘STUDY IN INDIA’?
Higher education for everyone is mandatory and a requirement for proper growth and development of the individual and the country at large. India has many top institutes where best education is given by some of the renowned educators, but still students prefer to leave India and go to some foreign countries to pursue their studies as well as career. We get to hear that, in those countries the job prospects are better, and things are more systematic, hence the work done, and the facilities provided are much better. India, for all these years, has failed to attract foreign students to their colleges and universities however, situations will change very soon since the government has launched ‘study in India’ programme to attract foreign students.
The Ministry of Human Resources Development (HRD) has approved ‘Study in India’ programme to attract international students to pursue higher education in India. This has been done to encourage more students from other countries to choose India as the destination of higher education and also to make the global ranking of the Indian institutes better. Through this brilliant programme, the meritorious students will get a chance to study in India will full or partial scholarship. Full waiver of tuition fees will be given to top 25% students, half waiver of fees will be given to the next 25% of students, the other 25% scholarship will be given to 25% of students from the third category and no scholarships will be given to the rest. The level of Indian education system will also improve because the institutes need to accommodate the students from abroad as well.
India is a country of rich culture, history and heritage from time immemorial and it was famous for its brilliant education system as well. Let’s bring back our outstanding educational structure and make others aware of it. India has the capability of featuring herself in the top 100 global ranking if we all are eager to try and change certain things in our system. ‘Study in US’, ‘Study in Britain’ …why not ‘Study in India’ as well?
