  1. The cost of higher education in India
  2. Useful links
  3. List of Universities in India


India has both public and private universities. The public universities are supported by the Indian government and the state governments. The private universities are generally supported by different organization, groups and societies. In India, the universities are recognized by the University Grants Commission (UGC), under the control of the University Grants Commission Act, 1956. Fifteen additional professional councils are also established which help control the different facets of accreditation and coordination. There are four types of universities in India, they are; Central universities, State universities, Deemed universities and Private universities.

Below are some useful links and a list of all the Universities and Colleges in India.

In order to know more about the admissions requirements you will need to contact the College directly.




The cost of a college degree in India varies significantly. Government institutions cost much less than private institutions because it is highly subsidized by the government. India’s government maintains laws that educational institutions accredited by the government can only operate under a not for profit status. The governments not for profit institutions for higher education are a way to increase accessibility and educational equality to all citizens of India. Admittance to a government college (or commonly referred to in the United States as a public institution) or university requires one to be a citizen of India.

The fees charged for attending college in a public institution is very minimal and is funded for the most part by states governments and the central government. In fact, students who are very poor are able to attend public institutions for free, pending they are accepted. Students attending public universities and colleges in India pay tuition fees of approximately 3,200 rupees or $50 per year.


Private institutions are operated on a for profit business model. Private colleges and universities are typically not recognized by the Indian government, do not receive government funding and are not held to acceptable academic standards. In many cases, private institutions are more concerned with making fast money than providing a high standard of education and high quality academic programs.

Few private institutions admit students based on academic performance and ranking on standardized tests. For the most part, private institutions in India base their admission guidelines on how much a student is willing to pay to get into the college. Fees charged by private institutions can vary from 19000 rupees $300 per year to more than the annual tuition of prominent American universities (approximately $25,000 to $40,000 annually). Private institutions are an alternative for students who are unable to attend state (public) universities and frequently offer admission to Non Resident Indian students over citizens of India.
