Highlighting the growing importance of India as a global education hub, a two-day India Education Exhibition opened in Kuwait on Saturday.

Inaugurating the exhibition, Indian Ambassador to Kuwait, Ajai Malhotra said, "India offers a quality education at a fraction of the cost elsewhere and the alumni of many Indian institutions are recognised globally for their high caliber."

At this exhibition, Indian and foreign students can explore a wide range of higher education options in India and obtain at a single venue updated information on fees, eligibility criteria and undergraduate and postgraduate courses at a number of Indian institutions of higher learning.

The ambassador urged students planning on pursuing higher education in the near future, to visit and avail the educational information available at the exhibition.

With nearly 40 exhibitors, 150 institutions and over 300 courses on offer, the Exhibition is a must-attend event for students wanting to find out about further and higher education in India.

With more than 17,000 colleges, 400 universities, 13 institutes of national importance and various other vocational institutes, India's higher education system is one of the largest in the world.

According to a report published by Department of Higher Education, a wing of the Indian Ministry of Human Resource Development (HRD), enrollment of foreign students in Indian Universities has shown a steady upward trend since 2004, with students from Asian countries constituting nearly 70 per cent of the undergraduate intake.
