Indian Students Stepping Ahead Over Foreign Countries for Education

Jun 13, 2014 16:05 IST

    It may be great news for Indian students as one of the world’s best academic institutions said that the number of Indians in the institution has been multiplying. Indian students are setting new stones towards foreign universities and institutions.

    The news confirmed by Nicholas Dirks, chancellor of the University of California, Berkeley said that the applications from India for the undergraduate programmes in the university were rising dramatically.

    The number of candidates is increasing and according to the records last year about 1300 applicants from India applied for the undergraduate programmes out of which 150 students were admitted. As per Dirks, the number of Indians has doubled in the past five years and among 5000 international students in UC, Berkeley, 500 were Indians.

    Berkeley is counted among the top ranked in the list of university rankings. The university’s faculty, alumni and the researchers have won about 72 Nobel Prizes, 15 Turing Awards, often referred to as the Nobel Prize of computer science, and 11 Pulitzer Prizes.
