To increase the number of Indian students in the UK, the British council has launched 370 new scholarships worth 1 million pounds, the largest number of scholarships ever launched in a year in India.
The opportunities and popular subjects that Indian students opt for in the UK are featured in the Great Career Guide launched by the British Council, with the aim to guide and assist student to make informed choices.
Due to the tightening of student and work visa regulations by the British Government, applications took a hit in the country. With a view to increase the number of Indian students in the UK, universities are holding fairs.
An education fair was held last week at the Lalit Hotel in New Delhi in which over 57 Universities of UK participated and many more are eager to attend such fairs across the country in the weeks to come.
These fairs aim to provide students relevant information on undergraduate, post graduate and research programmes in the UK. They give students the information about visa regulations and policies along with student life and culture. There are stalls from various universities with representatives who willing answer any queries about their institution.
There are nearly 400,000 students from overseas who study in the UK annually, of which about 30,000 are currently from India.
