India as a Study destination

Studying abroad is a dream come true for a number of African students who want to experience the vibrancy of foreign culture while studying. But before you pack your bags and head off, there are some important matters that you should think about. The challenges of living away from home, being far from family and friends, managing finances (using a new currency), language barrier, cultural differences – these can be difficult when you’re new in a country halfway across the world.

India is an exciting study abroad destination, and it is constantly striving to improve. Many Indian universities are renowned in their field, something that is especially true for technology: India is well known for its experts in the technological fields, engineering and medicine: Indian medical colleges are famous for providing excellent clinical knowledge, training programs, and expertise.

Benefits of Studying in India


Studying in India is very affordable. The cost of living and studying is much lower, even the most expensive institution in India could be less than half the price of other destinations like US, UK, Canada etc. Many Indian institutions offer concessions in fees (in form of Institute Scholarship) making quality education affordable.

Quality Education

Indian institutions are academically oriented and have high standards. It is often argued that Indian universities do not rank as well internationally, but they do offer quality education, nevertheless. They’re also highly respected in the world of academia, which means studying there will open up more opportunities for you after graduation!

Advanced Technology 

Studying in India has an excellent track record when it comes to research and innovation. So, if you are into tech and engineering, then this is a good place for you! You’ll be able to explore new frontiers of technology. Also, irrespective of the traditional classroom methods, almost every college/university uses advanced technology to teach better.

 Although pros of studying in India outweigh the cons, we believe it’s always good to check up on the cons before making the final call. Drawbacks include:

Language Barrier

While studying in India, you’re bound to come across many non-fluent English speakers including lecturers in some institutions.

Culture Shock

You can never be completely prepared for culture shock. Though it will be stressful to adjust initially, with changes in food, lifestyle, weather etc., you’ll eventually figure a way out with time.
