Only 16 India Programs Account for 80.3% Int’l Students

Key Takeaways:

  • Just 16 programs across India account for 80.3% of international students.
  • All India Survey on Higher Education (AISHE) 10th Edition revealed a slightly higher international student enrollment than the previous year.
  • Study in India continues to market to international students by shifting online featuring their universities and offerings.

According to data released by the Indian government this month, only 16 programs across India account for more than 80% of international student enrollments, with over 20% of students enrolled in B Tech courses.

The 10th edition of the All India Survey on Higher Education (AISHE) revealed slightly higher international student enrollments with 49,348 international students enrolled in higher education in the country in the 2019/20 academic year compared to 47,427 registrations from the previous year.

The report noted that the international students come from 168 different countries all over the world mostly from neighboring countries such as Nepal, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, and Bhutan. A little less than three out of four international students enrolled in India were undergraduates, 16.6% were pursuing postgraduate studies, and 9.1% were studying at other levels.

While Study in India was launched in 2018, the number of international student enrollment has not changed significantly. Although there are scholarship grants and initiatives to target prospective international students, critics have argued that India’s National Education Policy offered little provision for increasing international student numbers.

In response, Study in India continued to market to international students by a five-day Study in India Expo 2021 online featuring more than 45 local universities, which they said attracted over 4,000 visitors from 77 countries.
