Often regarded as easy-to-penetrate markets, India and Sri Lanka form the cornerstone of many educational institution’s international student intake. With almost 200,000 Indian and Sri Lankan students currently studying abroad - a number that seemingly has no limits - only China sends more international students overseas. India has the 2nd largest population of higher education students, and is predicted to pass China within the next 10 years, with an estimated 119 million college aged students by 2025. Already over 50% of the country’s population is under the age of 25, making India home to one of the world’s youngest populations. Indian students tend to look for recognition on a global level to give them a competitive edge over the huge number of peers that they will be competing with for jobs. They believe that the best way to find this is through quality education, which is limited within India, but in abundance overseas.
