India at the Threshold of Becoming an International Education Hub
Never has schooling in India looked so promising than now, particularly the international schools. According to a research, the number of international schools has risen by 45 percent in the past decade. It is estimated that there are around 470 international schools across India.
The monumental rise could be attributed to the fact that parents can afford to send their children to international schools and more students are migrating abroad for higher education or careers. International education can open doors to prestigious universities across the globe.
According to ISC research, number of international schools doubled in last 10 years. Most of the major cities in the country have an international school. With a growing young population in the country, and economic liberalisation the number of such schools is only expected to surge in the future.
International schools provide globally recognised qualifications and education. Owing to the growing demand and popularity of international schools, many schools have changed boards from state examination to international ones.
The advantages that international schools have are unparalleled – world class education, global recognition, skilled teachers, smaller sizes of classes and healthy student-teacher ratio, globally benchmarked infrastructure, huge range of co-curricular and extra-curricular activities, overall development of the student, preparing them to be global citizens of the future, state-of-the-art academic and sports facilities and much more. These schools help students realise their potential through various methods of explorations. They have excellent facilities for students to keep in touch with their families. There is a student-centric approach in the school and in the dorms. It is a far cry from the traditional boarding schools that we have had until now.
Entry into universities abroad is made easy by also the fact that international schools have associations/tie-ups with higher educational institutions across the world.
Couple of decades ago, owing to the high fees charged by international schools, many parents were unable to afford international schools for their children. Recognising this, many international schools revised their fee structure in India to accommodate more students. This gave a thrust to the number of students enrolling in international schools.
What was earlier the realm of mainly expatriate children, today has local Indian children in great numbers. India is gradually becoming the hub of international schools.
