The country which, at the time of independence only had 20 Universities and 500 Colleges now boasts of having more than 720 Universities and 45,000 colleges, thereby making India the largest higher education system in the world and second largest in terms of student enrolment (31 million). In spite of this, the GER is presently lagging at 22.5% (2013) which is far lower than the world average. This signifies a tremendous growth potential, especially given the Government’s target of achieving GER of 30% by 2020. The Indian higher education system has exhibited impressive growth over the last decade to become the largest system of higher education in the world in terms of institutions and second largest in terms of student’s enrolment.
Today, 300,000 Indian students study in Higher Education overseas spending INR 60,000 crores (USD 10 billion). These numbers of 300,000 will only increase as Indian becomes prosperous. If, even half of these students could be educated by foreign institutions in India or through Twining programmes between Indian and foreign institutions, it will be a big boost for our Higher Education system. These figures also imply that there is a huge opportunity for Foreign Universities to set up campuses in India
