English Medium

Medium of instruction is a very crucial factor in determining the quality of curriculum transaction and the level of achievement.

Every Indian university has English as the medium of instruction and most Indian universities consider a good knowledge of English as a pre-requisite to pursuing academic studies.

For the Humanities, Social sciences and Commerce courses, the medium of instruction is both English and regional languages but in case of professional courses, science and technical subjects, English is exclusively used for teaching. Postgraduate education is taught in English in most of the educational institutes.

For international students weak in English, most colleges and universities conduct special English language and communication courses.

India is the 3rd largest English speaking population in the world and hence it is a place where foreign nationals feel at home.

When I came to India, I thought language would be a problem. But, English is more like the norm in the campus. All my classmates speak English as fluently as me.

5.  Quality

Quality is the benchmark for development of infrastructure, curriculum, human resources and research and the establishment of centres of excellence, interdisciplinary and inter-institutional centres.

The National Policy on Education was framed by the Government of India in the early 1980s to ensure the formation of standardized guidelines for the enforcement of quality in higher education.

It is mandatory for all the Indian Institutions to be recognized by the appropriate National Level statutory bodies established by the Government of India for compliance to quality standards.

Some of the Statutory bodies which are constituted for recognition are:

All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE)

University Grants Commission (UGC)

Medical Council of India (MCI)

Dental Council of India (DCI)

Indian Council for Agricultural Research (ICAR)

In addition, quality of education is assured through National Board of Accreditation (NBA) for technical education and National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) for higher education.


The Indian education system promotes a 10+2+3 structure of curriculum. The National standards of uniform curriculum are comparable to international standards. To ensure uniformity of curriculum, the National Policy on Education (1986) emphatically stressed on the importance of basic parameters of equity and excellence. Well thought out courses of study, detailed curricular outlines, identification of learning outcomes, variety of instructional materials both audio and visual and improved evaluation tools have been developed to supplement the delivery of the given curricula.

National Policy on Education - 1986 has stipulated the role of a teacher, which includes instruction, curriculum development, instructional material development, research and innovation and testing and consultancy services.

A lot of measures have been taken up by the Indian Government to ensure that the teachers are trained aptly to perform their given role adequately.

As an initiative to bridge the gap between curriculum and syllabus development and education delivery, the policy stipulates the involvement of teachers in  developing courseware.

Optimum infrastructure in terms of research labs, equipments and lecture theatres are very important for effective delivery. The universities and colleges are given adequate grants every year to ensure that they are able to maintain and upgrade their infrastructure. The policy advises on certain minimum standards which every Institute should maintain.

Association with Industry
The educational philosophy that has come to prevail both in India and in the developed world is that the interaction of institute with industry at every level is very important. Keeping this in mind, the Indian Government has taken measurable steps to promote the association of industries with institutes.

In line with this AICTE (All India Council for Technical Education) has been set up Board Of Industry-Institute-Interaction (BOII)

The following initiatives have been introduced as a part of Industry-Institute Interaction:
1. Industry-Institute Partnership Cell
2. Mobilization of Industrial Personnel
3. Seminars/Workshops
4. Sponsored PG Courses
5. INAE-AICTE Visiting professorship
6. Entrepreneurship and management development 

Workshops and Seminars
To give a more practical perspective to the classroom training, Workshops and seminars have been integrated with the curriculums of a number of professional courses. These workshops ensure that the students get an opportunity to demonstrate their skills practically, and get a hands-on experience. 

It's my dream to teach in my own country one day and maintain these same standards.
Madara Ranatunga
Sri Lanka.






























Quality is thus an important criteria in all initiatives. The formulation of policies and strategies is an extensive exercise involving consultations between various expert institutions, non-governmental agencies, industries, teacher unions, students and the community at large, including the mass media. The modalities include seminars, conferences, informal discussions, research studies and public debate. From time to time, committees comprising a cross-section of educationists are asked to examine and review the prevailing standards. 



6.  Welcoming Environment

India has a large number of international students coming from all parts of the world to pursue their desired  careers in Indian Institutions.

Colleges also make efforts to help foreign students feel at home and help them to integrate with the rest of the student community.

International students enjoy their stay in India, for it provides them ample opportunities to explore the country to its fullest. Moreover, people of India are very warm and welcoming, and happily extend their hospitality to foreigners.

Most of the populace understands and speaks English, and therefore international students face no communication problems. 

Indian are very warm and friendly people, I still miss my country, but India is now my "home away from home".
Giles Kangberee

7.  Personal Approach

India has a personal approach to teaching, embodied in the Gurukul system where a teacher interacts on a one-to-one basis with students, helping them out in their difficulties. 





Being from a different education system, I thought I would face problems here, my professors are very helpful and give me individual attention when needed.
John Nyamvumba, Rwanda.

8.  All round development

College festivals, sports meets, student clubs, etc., form an important part of a student's activities in Indian campuses and go a long way towards overall development.

Students are also  acquainted with some aspects of India's economy and commerce through visits to public giants and private enterprises.

Many colleges conduct orientation programmes with the aim of assisting international scholars to adjust to their new surroundings.

My 3 years in India have taught me not just my subjects, but also how to believe in myself. My parents are really proud of me.
Aniruddha Barua

9.  The Indian Experience

 Studying and living in India is a special experience. India is a country rich in cultural heritage, having multi religious society. A cosmopolitan environment and easy acceptance of all cultures and religions, makes India a friendly nation.

Students love and enjoy their stay in India. Besides the high standard of education, the students get an ample opportunity to know the cultures and traditions of India, and revel in the scenic beauty of the country.


My 4 years in India will always be the source of many fond memories. It's been a truly unique experience.
