From France and Germany to Poland and Scandinavia, education options for Indian students have exploded in EU

Tourism and Hospitality

Ten thousand Indian students by 2020. That’s the target France has set, and ambassador Alexandre Ziegler reckons that it “looks very possible”

“In the first six months of this year, there has been an increase of 40 per cent in the number of Indian students going to study in France over the previous year’s corresponding year, in which 4,500 students made the trip,” Ziegler told ET Magazine.

According to estimates from the European Union, there are around 45,000 Indian students made the trip,” Ziegler told ET Magazine.

According to estimates from the European Union, there are around 45,000 Indian students in the continent at present. While the US is still a favourite, with some 1,65,918 Indian students in 2015-16, European countries are fast playing catch-up. The UK — now out of the Union — has been a perennial favourite within Europe for some time now — in 2016, some 11,300 UK tier-IV student visas (for those over 16) were issued to Indian students, a 2 per cent increase over the previous year. The total number of Indian students in the UK is estimated at around 20,000. Of late, though, the options extend beyond Blighty.

Consider, for instance, Germany, which in 2015-16 had over 14,000 Indian students enrolled. The number of Indian students choosing Germany has been consistently growing by 15-20 per cent per year, and the trend is likely to sustain this year as well.

According to Ziegler, more and more Indian students are choosing a non-traditional destination like France as it has some top higher education institutions in engineering and business. What is more, foreign students, like their local counterparts, are entitled to education subsidies.
