SkillTree Great Place to Study will enhance the reputation of some of India’s most distinguished educational institutions across the globe. The importance of having access to a good education is something that cannot be overemphasised. Attracting the best and the brightest to India will support this cause by enriching the academic environment, enhancing quality and bringing in new resources to the community.
“India is indeed a great place to study with an abundance of reputable and world-class universities, as is increasingly the case in many other emerging economies. As the world gets smaller and more and more students from the UK choose to study abroad, it is essential that they are fully aware of the growing number of opportunities that are available to them. This is why we are very proud to support Shekhar Bhattacharjee CEO, Skilltree. We look forward to watching the professional and educational links between India and the UK flourish in the future.”
