Indian universities attract international students in record numbers.


India now competes with US colleges and universities to attract students from all over the world and based on recent statistics India appears to be doing remarkably well. SiliconIndia reported in an article dated August 12, 2008 that several universities in India enjoyed record enrollment of foreign students, including Indira Gandhi University and Manipal Academy of Higher Education. International student recruitment is now a high priority for a growing number of colleges and universities in India.

Several colleges and universities are building new residential campuses and paying close attention to ensure that they not only offer exceptional classroom instruction but are also paying close attention to the unique needs of international students. The cost of earning a degree in India is pittance compared to an US education and an added bonus is many multinationals are eager to hire graduates from good Indian institutions. A win-win for India and for international students!
