Few countries in the world can match India's cultural diversity, landscape variety, heritage richness and flavors of education. It's worthwhile to recollect what Mark Twain said about India - "India is the cradle of the human race, the birthplace of human speech, the mother of history, the grandmother of legend, and the great grandmother of tradition. Our most valuable and most instructive materials in the history of man are treasured up in India." Spread across 29 states and 7 union territories, India has more than 800 universities & 39,000 colleges, which can combinedly accommodate more than a whopping 20 million students. The Indian Education system, which is the world's second largest Higher Education System, guarantees value-for-money for international students as most of its academic programs are delivered at about one fourth the average international cost. The NEP2020 (National Education Policy 2020) envisages lots of disruptive and revolutionary changes in the overall Indian Education system that's certainly going to benefit international students. Indian universities offer a wide range of programs that are aligned to the latest advancements of science and technology like Artificial Intelligence, Virtual and Augmented Reality and Cognitive Computing to traditionally strong disciplines like Yoga, Ayurveda, Sanskrit and classical dances. The Indian education system has produced some of the most reputed & successful technocrats like Satya Nadella, CEO, Microsoft who's an alumni of Manipal Academy of Higher Education, Sundar Pichai, CEO, Google Inc who studied at Indian Institute of Technology in Kharagpur. India believes in "Vasudhaiva kutumbakam" (the world is a family), which sets the right social ambiance for international students. If you wish to experience culture, heritage, art, tradition and history, along with innovative, dynamic and creative education, India is the place to be!
