UGC mandates institutions admitting international students to register on EducationlNdia Portal.

The University Grant Commission vide its notification dated 5th April 2022 has developed a new EducationlNdia portal ( to showcase the strengths of Indian institutions to international students and to make available to them all information about lndian HEls in one place. Through this portal, all lndian institutions in higher education that are admitting/desirous of admitting international students will get a common platform to showcase their strength.

Registration on the portal by a student will be optional for browsing through the portal. However, at the time of issuing the offer of admission to any international student, the institution would ask the student to register on the portal, if not already registered, and generate a unique EducationlNdia portal ID. A student has to register on the portal only once even if he is applying/ has got offers from multiple institutions.

It will be mandatory for all such institutions admitting international students to have AISHE (All India Survey on Higher Education) code which will be used as login-id on this portal. After updating of data by the HEls, the portal will be opened for international students to search the institutions and programmes as per their choice. The portal will also be instrumental in promoting lndian institutions and programmes to the international students across the globe.
