Education Systems

India has been a major seat of learning for thousands of years. The country was home to both Takshashila – the first university in the world, and to the inventor of the digit 0 – Āryabhaṭa. Albert Einstein once said:, “we owe a lot to the Indians who taught us how to count, without which no worthwhile scientific discovery could have been made”.

The Indian education system is highly similar to that of the Anglo – Saxon period.

The Indian education system is currently mainly comprised of primary education, secondary education, senior secondary education and higher education. Elementary education consists of eight years of education. Secondary education lasts four years and senior secondary education is an additional two years of education.

The stages are:

Nursery –> primary (class 1 to class 5) –>secondary (class 6 to Class 10) –> Senior Secondary (class 11- Class 12) –> Graduation (Arts & Commerce – 3 years, professional – 4 years, Medical – 5 years,) –> post graduation (1/2 to 3 years)

Higher Education

Higher education in India starts after passing the higher secondary education or the 12th standard. Depending on what you study, attaining your degree in India can take three to five years. Postgraduate courses are generally two to three years long. After completing a postgraduate degree, there is the option of continuing on with doctoral studies and research at various educational institutes.

Due to the limited number of universities in relation to the large number of applicants, universities work with affiliated colleges. These provide education and issue degrees under the name of the affiliated university. There are more than 17,000 colleges, 20 central universities, 217 State universities, 106 Deemed Universities and 13 Institutes of National importance in the Indian higher education system. This number is consistently growing as a further 30 central universities, 8 new IITs, 7 IIMs and 5 new Indian Institutes of Science are proposed. The private sector within Indian higher education is also strong and steadily growing. These institutes offer education at everything from certificate and diploma level to undergraduate and postgraduate education. These private institutions originally started a trend for distance education, which is now very popular throughout India. Today many prestigious Indian Universities offer distance programs and some such as Indira Gandhi National Open University offer only distance programs, and is one of the largest in student enrollment.
