More details about the country
India is an independent country that occupies most of South Asia’s land. The sovereign state is a constitutional republic that consists of 29 states, six union territories, and the Delhi national capital territory where New Delhi, the capital of the country, can be found. India is the second most populous country in the world, with a total population of 1,387,037,000 as of 2019. India shares borders with Pakistan, Nepal, China, Bhutan, and Myanmar (Burma). It also surrounds Bangladesh and is separated from the island country of Sri Lanka by 40 miles across the Palk Strait and Gulf of Mannar.
Despite the country being among the highest ranking in terms of poverty, India can provide quite a few benefits to students seeking to obtain an academic degree. To begin with, the country has over 3000 universities with international recognition and proper accreditation. Similarly, the sovereign state also offers a wide selection of available subjects with emphasis on Computer Science, Engineering, Information Technology, Business, Management, Chemistry, Mathematics, Administration, Communication, Physics and Medicine. In addition, the country offers many opportunities to participate in volunteer and internship programs, especially in the fields of Health, Gender Equality, Education and Environmental Conservation. However, one should bear in mind that tuition fees and entry requirements may vary greatly depending on whether the institution of higher education is public or private. Similarly, there may be universities which have a highly limited number of available openings in their study programs. Due to such potential setbacks, students should begin their preparation and research at least six months in advance.
