The British Council is planning to organise roadshows and a 'Great UK Education Seminar' in more than 17 cities across India.
British Deputy High Commission's British Council Division Director (Western India) Sam Harvey said that the event which began from Vadodara, would be held in Coimbatore, Raipur, Lucknow, Ahmedabad, Nagpur, Chandigarh, Jamshedpur, Kochi, Visakhapatnam , Surat, Kolkata, Bhubhaneswar, Jodhpur, Udaipur, Simla, Nasik, Mangalore, Mysore, Bengaluru and Guwahati, before it ends in March next.
"Our target is to increase the number of Indian students studying in the UK in the next two years and that is why it has been decided to hold this campaign in more than 17 cities across the country," British Council's head of International Education Marketing Suchita Gokam told PTI.
The seminars would cover various aspects of studying and living in the UK, student visas and an insightful session with alumni who would share their experience of studying in the UK.
"We decided to begin from Vadodara because of the location of the world famous Maharaja Sayajirao University in the city. The city is perhaps first across India to have a British Passport Holders Association," Gokam said.
