Many individuals are finding it a very cheap option to go to college in India. You may wonder how and why a third world country could be gathering steam in getting people to join but it is simple: cheap.
The official language of Indian colleges is English. Thanks to the British occupation of India. Therefore, there is no language problem for a foreigner to take courses. The schools in India are also now well known and respected.
IIT schools (Indian Institute of Technology) are to India what MIT and Caltech is to the United States. Your ability to go to these schools is exceptionally higher because you are a foreigner and college admissions consider a privilege to have you.
The only thing we recommend you make sure to do is make sure you find an area of India and get appropriate lodging. The lodging provided by schools are often subpar. But there are schools that are quite rich and have lush and vast parks and land. You can view pictures of the campus by looking online or even checking an Indian book database for information on it.
Applying to Indian colleges are not so painful for a foreigner but it is important to understand the Visa issue. You must get a Visa issue and acceptance to college will generally help you out very much. Another thing that is important to understand is that although they will speak English from within the college, you can not expect that they will speak it outside the college. So do not be afraid to learn a new language.
