Studying in Mumbai
Mumbai is not only a business and trade metropolis, but also a knowledge hub. With a density of more than 80 universities and research institutes, students and academics can seek higher education in all fields and according to their own interests. Furthermore, some of India’s best universities are located in Mumbai.
Besides the constantly increasing number of students of all social backgrounds in India, the amount of international students is rising, too. International students are primarily interested in technical degrees, such as Informatics and Engineering, as well as Social Studies, Linguistics and Religion. At most of the bigger universities, courses are taught in English, which facilitates life for foreign students.
An academic exchange or studying a whole degree abroad is an intellectually, culturally and personally, a life-enriching experience. For all academics interested in studying in Mumbai, we provide support in their search for a university, program or accommodation as well as the registration process. We also try to set students up with friends who can help them during their first weeks in the city. Furthermore, we will give advice and assistance in case of any trouble.
