Country overview

India has one of the world's largest populations of young people, with millions of students seeking higher education opportunities both domestically and abroad. Over 40% of India’s 1.4 billion population is under the age of 25. This contributes to a robust education sector with a market size estimated to reach 243 billion euros in 2025.

Following China, India ranks as the second largest source of international students. As per the report shared by the Ministry of External Affairs, approximately 1.3 million Indian students were studying abroad in 79 different countries in 2022. While traditionally known as a hub for postgraduate study-abroad students, India’s undergraduate sector is now booming, offering exciting prospects for global education providers.

The country has a vast network of over 1.5 million schools and over 1,000 universities, catering to diverse educational needs. Indian students have a wide range of academic interests, from engineering and technology to business, science, and the humanities, aligning with the diverse programme offerings of institutions worldwide. By recruiting from India, universities gain access to students who are not only academically strong but also possess the adaptability, problem-solving skills, and global outlook crucial for success in today's interconnected world.

Key Facts

High demand for international education: There is a growing demand among Indian students for international education, driven by the desire for high-quality programmes, global exposure, and better career prospects.

English proficiency: As English is a widely spoken and official language in India, students are often well-prepared to join English-speaking institutions abroad, making it easier for global universities to recruit.

Economic growth: India benefits from a "demographic dividend," with a large and young workforce that contributes to its economic growth and potential for further expansion. Its rapidly growing economy means more families can afford to send their children abroad for education, expanding the market for international student recruitment.

Strong diaspora connections: With a large Indian diaspora around the world, many students seek education in countries where they have familial or cultural ties, providing a unique recruitment advantage.
