Finding and applying to the right college in a foreign country is not a mammoth task. Study in India makes the admission process to any college/university in India easy.

Here’s a step-by-step guide.


Select a course/college according to your preference 

Visit the Plan Your Studies tab on the Study in India homepage to find out more about where you'd like to study.

Under Programmes and Universities, select List of Institutes/Universities-Discipline wise.

This section allows you to filter the search to type of institute, course names, subject, state and program level.

Clicking on the college listed will give you further information about the courses, including cost and requirements. 

For Short Term Courses

Under Programmes and Universities, select for Short-term/Niche Courses

You can find out more about the niche courses like Ayurveda, Yoga, Classical Dance, Hindi, Buddhism among others.

All colleges and universities listed with Study in India, have the best ranking and accreditation according to NIRF, NAAC guidelines to ensure the education you receive is of the highest quality.

Please note, you can apply to as many colleges. Once you have decided on your list of ideal colleges, we’d suggest you browse through accommodations and living in India. Look up the location, climate, culture and other factors before finalizing your choice.
