Government to launch Special Portal for Study Abroad

With an objective to help Indian students who want to study abroad, the Indian government is planning to launch a portal listing accredited institutes of higher education in various countries.

With this initiative, these students can choose their universities based on verified and authentic information compiled by the Indian government on the portal.

Being established by the Ministry of External Affairs in collaboration with the MHRD, Ministry of Health and Ministry of Family Welfare, the portal will curb instances of students getting duped by agents while choosing foreign universities.

“We have been getting complaints that many students who want to study abroad are lured into taking admission in substandard institutes and later feel cheated,” a government source told Indian Express.

“There have been even cases that  some students landed up in few countries in central Asia only to realise that the institute they had taken admission to did not even exist,” the source added .

“We therefore thought that a dedicated portal that will have list of good institutes for undergraduate as well as postgraduate courses in every country will immensely benefit our students. We are in the process of consulting department or ministries of education in various countries and our foreign missions and will soon launch the website formally,” he added further.

The data released by the Ministry of External Affairs in August last year showed over 5.5 lakh Indian students are studying abroad in 86 countries and over 2.2 lakh students move out of India every year for pursuing higher studies.

Most of the students are in USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Bahrain, China and UK pursuing engineering, management, medicine or other technical courses, the data showed.
