In the academic year 2021–2022, almost 200,000 Indian students choose to pursue higher education in the United States, up 19% from the previous year, according to the Open Doors Report that was just issued. Over a million international students are studying in the United States, and over 21% of them are Indian.
Gloria Berbena, Minister Counselor for Public Diplomacy, congratulated India for leading the world in the proportion of students selecting the United States. It’s obvious that Indian students and their parents understand the value of a U.S. education, one that equips them to use their newly acquired knowledge to address the challenges facing the world and prepares them for future opportunities, whether those opportunities are in artificial intelligence, emerging technologies, or entrepreneurship, and innovation.
The U.S. Department of State provides free advising services to potential students in eight EducationUSA advising centres across India — in New Delhi, Chennai, Kolkata, Bangalore, Ahmedabad, Mumbai, and two in Hyderabad — both remotely and in person. All eight centres are staffed with EducationUSA advisors who provide precise, thorough, and current information about opportunities to study in the US. They assist Indian students in selecting the most appropriate programme and institution from among the 4,000 accredited U.S. higher education institutions.
The EducationUSA India app is free to download on iOS and Android smartphones and can be used by students and families who want more information about studying in the US. The app is a quick and simple initial step to arranging higher education in the US and gives the most recent information on the college application process.
