Young Indians continue to favour UK universities despite cost barriers
The UK is the most popular destination for ambitious Indian students seeking status and high quality courses, according to a unique survey published today.
Despite competition from the US, Australia and an expanding higher education sector in India itself, the UK remains the country most sought after by young Indians for a university education.
The study, the first of its kind, was conducted by the British Council over the last three months to explore the views of more than 10,000 young people across India. It gives a fascinating insight into their attitudes to higher education at home and abroad and the factors that influence their university choices.
