Study in Mumbai

With over 80 universities and research institutions, students and academics in Mumbai find a wide range of educational and research opportunities that cover all areas of interest. With the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IIT) one of the best universities in South Asia is located in Mumbai. In addition to various technical and business universities, there are also numerous well-known film schools as well as marketing and management institutes in the mega-metropolis.

In addition to the traditionally popular courses such as computer science and engineering, social, political and economic sciences are also becoming increasingly popular. At all major universities, most courses are taught in English, which makes it easier for foreign students to enter Indian university life.
