What’s it like studying in the country with the second-highest population, the country with the most populous democracy, and the country that has six total national religions? Probably unlike anything you’ve experienced before. Is it possible to get an overload of culture? Let’s hope not, because that’s precisely how it feels to pursue a Bachelor’s or Master’s in India. For decades, students from all over the world have imagined themselves swimming in this endless stream of diverse music, food, and art that exist together in India’s massive landscape. Such an environment also makes studying there both exciting and hugely enriching. Universities in India have built an amazing reputation for high academic prestige and for producing some of the smartest minds in the world. Specifically, the Engineering, Science, and Technology degree programmes have been known to produce some of the top tech geniuses of Silicon Valley. Also, luckily for you, India requires that all universities be accredited. This means that, no matter which university you attend, your Bachelor’s or Master’s degree will be recognised at other universities and major companies in and outside of India. Considering India has the second-largest English-speaking population in the world, international students will be perfectly fine not only succeeding in their courses, but buying food or going to movies. Add in all that delightful dancing and there’s really no reason not to study in India. Universities in India have quite a long history, and many of them follow the old British models.

To study in English at one of the universities in India, you may need a proof of English proficiency. There are several standardised English tests that you can take to proof your English level, such as the PTE (Pearson Test of English), TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language), CAE (Cambridge Advanced English) and IELTS (International English Language Testing System), offered by British Council and IDP. IELTS is the most popular of these tests, with British Council offering more than 500 test locations and being accepted by more than 9,000 organisations world-wide.
