About universities in India

As the overall economy continues to grow in India, higher education has become an important government priority and is seen by students as a stepping stone to a high paying career, either within India or abroad.  Next to China and the United States, the Indian system of higher education is now the third-largest in the world, and consists of universities and colleges at the national and state level, as well as hundreds of private institutions.
 
Higher Education in India:  Admissions, Eligibility and Structure
 
Entrance into one of India’s higher education institutions is predicated on successful completion of the country’s 10+2 education schedule—ten years of compulsory primary and junior secondary school education, followed by two additional years of upper secondary schooling, in which students receive instruction in a combination of general education and vocational/career subjects.  Once this final stage is completed, students are eligible to enroll in a full-time or part-time “graduation” course of study, a program equivalent to the Bachelor Degree programs offered in much of the Western world.  These degrees are offered in almost every major academic field, and typically take 3-5 years to complete depending on the school and the program.
 
While higher education is open to all students, certain degree programs, particularly those in advanced academic fields such as mathematics, science and technology, require students to achieve a passing score on a national entrance exam prior to admittance.
 
Once students successfully complete the required coursework in the “graduation course” program, they essentially have two options:  they can pursue entry-level to mid-level employment in the career field in which they studied, or continue their education by enrolling in a post-graduate degree program, leading to a Master’s Degree (2 additional years) or a Doctorate-level degree (4-6 additional years following the first-level degree).
 
Higher Education in India:  Governance
 
At the national level of higher education in India, there are two types of institutions:  “Full Universities, which are the most esteemed, and “Deemed to be Universities,” schools with the second highest classification in the country.  The main governing body for each stage of national-level higher education is the University Grants Commission (UGS)—a body that appoints 12 autonomous universities to oversee and maintain the accreditation process at each of the national universities in India.  The UGC receives its funding via grants from India’s central government, a government that is ultimately responsible for the formulation of education policy and its execution throughout the entire system. 
 
State universities, colleges and private institutions, although not nearly as renowned as their “national” counterparts, are a very important component of higher education in India, and home to the majority of university-level students.  At the public level, these institutions are administered by the appropriate state officials, and they rely on state grants as well as student tuition for their continued maintenance.  Private colleges and universities in India can be non-profit schools, usually operated by religious groups or other charitable entities, or for-profit, schools, relying predominantly on student tuition for their sustained operation.
 
Higher Education in India:  Challenges
 
Despite the size of India’s higher education system, the country still faces many challenges.  Studies show that nearly 30 percent of the country is illiterate, and currently, only 25 percent of India’s youth take advantage of the country’s non-compulsory upper secondary education.  Of those that do, only 7 percent go on to receive a university degree.  This ultimately puts limits on India’s overall economy, as there are not enough qualified individuals to fill necessary positions in advanced fields such as engineering, technology and medicine.  Moreover, many of India’s brightest students and graduates emigrate from the country following their education to pursue more lucrative career positions abroad, further draining the intellectual base of India’s system.
