The goal is not just to retain Indian students who are flocking abroad but also invite participation from the international student’s community who can explore India’s diverse culture and education.
Further our social adaptive fabric to multi cultures India, position of brand India and the acceptance of English as a second language make us an attraction destination of education for all neighbouring countries. However, India needs to work on its regulations, funding for educational institutions to create an adequate infrastructure for this.
The rising employability of the country, the current ‘invent’ mindset of the start-up culture and the increasingly international appeal as an investment destination have positively affected its position in the education sector. Even the Make in India campaign has established brand India as a contending player in the international sphere and hence “Educate in India” should be the next big tag line for India.
