» Emerging Sectors in India
Healthcare, tourism, food processing, retail, manufacturing, IT and many more fields like these are
emerging and getting global recognition. There is a wide range of other sectors that India specialises in.
According to various researches, the Indian market is experiencing a huge growth in these fields and many
new avenues are opening up. There is a great potential for growth.
» Skill Shortages
India is the hub of flourishing industries. This has given way for development in many fields like
manufacturing, mining, construction, mechanical engineering, electronics, information technology, and so on.
Since India has opened up many opportunities, there is a wide range of skills that are not found locally.
This gives an opportunity for international students to conquer the market and get to higher positions.
This is the reason why the Indian government has taken measures to encourage global involvement of various
students to strengthen this skill set. Many people from across the globe are making use of this opportunity.
» Education costs in India
Among the top 15 countries, India is the least expensive country for foreign students. The cost of living
here is very less as compared to other countries. One of the major reasons for low cost of education is that
the government of India funds a wide range of education streams.
The first factor that you need to consider is that the annual cost of education combined with living is on
an average Rs. 350,000. This is far lesser than the cost of education in developed countries like the US or UK.
In India, the scenario for accommodation is different from the other countries. Here many reputed universities
offer accommodation to their students within campus. However, some universities do not have this facility.
In this case a student has the option to rent a room in a private hostel, rent a room on his own, or get a
serviced apartment on rent. There are various benefits that a student gets in each type of accommodation
that he/she chooses. A student can experience a comfortable stay for a month within Rs.10,000. So annually
Rs.120,000 would make the student's living comfortable, happy, and safe.
» Scholarships to study in India
The Indian government offers a wide range of scholarships to foreign students every year. These scholarships
