Education is emerging to be one of the top focuses of all the developing nations around the world. The Study in India is a flagship project of the Government of India, launched in collaboration with the MoE, MEA, MHA, and MCI in April 2018. While India is a popular destination for its multicultural society, the whopping number of intakes since its launch has allowed the program to further its global identity in the international education realm.
With India ranked as the third-largest higher education system, home to 45,000 colleges, and 950 universities, Study in India was put together to encourage the global student community to experience quality academic learning from premier NAAC and NIRF accredited institutions in India. The Study in India team noticed students, aiming India as a study hub, are looking for practical knowledge, personal and societal development within and outside the four walls of classrooms.
The Study in India program was integrated by EdCIL (India) Limited, a mini-Ratna Category-I CPSE company based in India. Launched in April 2018 by the former Minister of External Affairs, late. Smt. Sushma Raj and former Minister of Education (formerly, Human Resource Development) Shri. Prakash Javadekar, the Study in India program receives applications from across the following regions - SAARC, Africa, South East Asia, Central Asia, and the Middle-East.
In an abundant and extensive higher education system such as India, the Study in India interface is a prime intermediary for students to explore, connect, and apply to various top-ranked institutions in the country. The program is currently offering approximately 55,000 seats with more than 35,500 fee waivers and 2,000 scholarships, with each scholarship valued at INR 250,000. Indian institutes provide technical expertise across a diverse range of courses, from STEM to non-STEM courses, and include programs in niche disciplines such as Ayurveda, Yoga, and Buddhist Studies. Institutes under the initiative offer waivers from 25% to 100% tuition fee waivers.
Since the inception of the program, we have partnered with NIRF and NAAC-certified institutions in the country. The eligibility criteria to partner with universities are sacrosanct. We cater to NIRF Top 100 institutes in any category except medical institutes, along with a NAAC accreditation of 3.26 or above and those which have been empaneled by UGC, be it government or private. All institutes fulfilling these criteria, partner with Study in India, including Institutes of Eminence and Institutes of National Importance.
