Employability Prospects for Returning Indian Students

Posted by Mark Gilbert on 5 January 2015

A recent British Council report into employability in India offers good news to foreign-educated Indian graduates. Over 200 companies (both Indian and international) were probed on their likeliness to recruit internationally educated graduates, and the anticipated benefits of international versus Indian educated students.

Though half of companies recruit exclusively form India's top ten unis, a large number (41%) have hired from international universities (including the University of London) in the last two years. Many cite internationals as having a greater capacity 41% of all companies have hired at least one foreign-university graduate in the last two years.

39% of graduates from international universities were seen as being better prepared for working life, compared with their Indian-educated peers. Conversely only 14% of employers rated Indian education as better preparing students for employment.

The report also highlights the continued increase in companies' reliance on internships as a method of recruitment. Two thirds of Indian firms now have internships programmes, and of those who don't half are planning to in the next few years.
