Ministry of Education Launches Study in India Portal to Attract International Students

The Union Minister for Education, Dharmendra Pradhan, and the Union Minister for External Affairs, Dr. S Jaishankar, jointly inaugurated the Study in India (SII) portal. This dedicated website aims to provide comprehensive information about higher education institutions (HEIs) in India, promoting the country as an attractive destination for international students.

The Study in India portal will showcase various academic programs offered by HEIs, encompassing undergraduate, postgraduate, doctoral courses, and courses in the Indian Knowledge System (IKS) such as Yoga, Ayurveda, and classical arts, among others. Prospective students can explore details about academic facilities, research support, and other relevant information available at these institutes.

One of the portal’s key features is the ability for students to apply to multiple institutes and courses of their choice through a streamlined and well-organized application process. It serves as a one-stop platform for student registration, visa application, course selection, and receiving offer letters from the chosen institute.

The Study in India program will partner with educational institutions meeting specific criteria, including National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) ranking of <=100, National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) accreditation score of >=3.01, and Institutes of National Importance (INI).

Under the Ministry of Education’s (MoE) auspices, the program’s primary objective is to attract a higher number of international students to India by offering affordable and high-quality education in line with global standards. The Education Minister highlighted that the SII portal reflects the commitment to make India a preferred education destination and to foster academic inclusivity, in alignment with the National Education Policy (NEP).

The Union Minister for External Affairs emphasized that the portal signifies the government’s dedication to position India as a global education hub, welcoming students from diverse backgrounds.

The launch event witnessed the presence of ambassadors from over 10 countries and students currently studying in India from Russia, Thailand, Japan, Ethiopia, Ecuador, Kazakhstan, and the Republic of Korea. The Study in India portal is expected to facilitate and simplify the academic journey of international students, further elevating India’s status as an excellent educational hotspot.
