Indian students study in the UK

Given that there have been a lot of changes with regards to international education in the UK in the recent years, we have had questions from students on how many Indian students study in the UK and the diversity rates. So, here’s our answer to your questions and more…

‘Computer Science and IT’ is among the most trending subject areas for Indian students to study in the UK. Don’t believe us? Check this out: The White House released a report that says a whopping 1.4 million jobs in the field of computer science and IT will be available across the world by 2020, with only around 400,000 graduates possessing required skills to fill them. Wow, right? 

So, a postgraduate degree in computer science and IT field is a great boost to your profile and you’re absolutely right in deciding to pursue it. 

Sure, moving abroad to study in the UK may seem a bit hard to adapt to. But universities in the UK have a great diversity inclusion rate – which means there are plenty of fellow Indian students for you to feel at home.
