European Univ to start English-medium courses


Traditionally, the most popular destinations among Indian students for studying abroad are the UK, USA, Australia and Canada. The main reason for this is the fact that these are English-speaking countries and it would be easier for a student from India to adjust, as there would not be much of a communication barrier for them.

Statistic reports say that India is the second largest English-speaking country in the world, second only to the United States of America. In such a scenario, it is only natural that countries wanting to attract Indian students into their universities, should make English their medium of instruction. And this is exactly what prominent European universities plan on doing.

Universities like the Institut d'etudes Politiques de Paris (Paris Institute of Political Science), ETH Zurich (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology) and Humboldt-Universitat zu Berlin, have very few Indian students, in spite of them being highly-rated. The primary reason behind this seems to be the fact that the courses are not taught in English. Universities in Germany, Netherlands, France, Spain and Italy are looking to remedy this problem by offering English-medium courses.
