Studying in India
Studying in India in one of the renowned campuses is not only cost effective but a rewarding educational experience where you get quality academic inputs along with opportunities for all–round development. It is important to keep the following points in mind while applying for graduate courses in India:
- The courses you apply for must be recognised by the appropriate authority e.g., the degree courses by the University Grant Commission (UGC), professional / technical courses by the All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE), medical courses by the Medical Council of India (MCI), dental courses by the Dental Council of India (DCI), law courses by the Bar Council of India (BCI) and so on. This is essential because most postgraduate programmes require that you should a graduate from a “recognised” university or possess a “ recognised” qualification.
- For B.A., B.Sc and B.Com do not limit yourself to the colleges of Delhi University where the cut- off’s are very high; also apply to renowned colleges in Mumbai, Pune, Bangalore, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Chandigarh, etc.
- Many colleges have a separate quota for sports and extra curricular activities (ECA)- go ahead and apply through these quotas, if you are eligible. This year the sports and eca quota of many Delhi colleges was not filled!
- For professional courses like, Design, Engineering, Hotel Management, Law, Medical Sciences, Mass Communication etc, apply to all the top campuses and appear for the major state and national level examinations. This will certainly enhance your choices of getting the right course at the right campus.
For those desirous of continuing their studies in India there are many educational opportunities available. Those students who are aiming for an academic programme after class XII and plan to join a professional course after graduation should seek admission to the best campuses in the country.
