There are many benefits of studying in India. Few among them are elucidated below:
The Indian education system is well ranked in the world and empowers the students. Apart from gaining knowledge, students become independent, responsible and on the whole better individuals. They acquire skills to solve real-world problems and make the world a better place. Indian education is known for imparting both theoretical and practical knowledge, thereby making students capable to tackle any challenges that come their way.

Compared to other western countries, education in India is relatively cheaper and of the same high quality. Nepalese students have to spend lakhs of rupees every semester in countries like the US and Canada as they are not eligible for in-state tuition. On the other hand, Nepalese students have to pay a lot lesser than half this amount for education in India. Living and personal expenses are also quite cheap here so for the entire course; you end up saving a lot of rupees.
Nepalese students are eligible to several need-based and merit-based scholarships throughout the colleges in India. The Indian embassy in Nepal also provides several scholarships to encourage Nepalese to study in India.
Industry specific skills
Another benefit of studying in India is that you get industry-specific knowledge as a part of your curriculum. There are a few internships that students should complete to get practical exposure before graduation. Certain classes also have a laboratory component where the students have to learn skills like smoldering, fabrication, welding, and cell culture which they will actually use in the industry later.
India is one of the top countries with the highest growing GDP. With this, there has been a boost in various job sectors. Many foreign investors are also now coming to India to set up production units. India has acquired a spot in the global market and this has led to many new jobs in the market. Education from a country like this will benefit Nepalese students to learn skills like entrepreneurship and management.
With the fast-growing GDP, job opportunities are also booming. There are several companies (of all sizes, including MNCs) that come for recruitment in the penultimate year of college itself to recruit students. Salaries paid are also quite high so there is no doubt in assuming that education in India will not reap its results.
