Bangalore – An Education Hub and a Haven for Students


Statistics show that students from all over India (and abroad) make a beeline for Bangalore to pursue their higher education after school. The most popular city for students besides Pune, Delhi and Mumbai is Bangalore. Bangalore or ‘Bengaluru’ has become synonymous with youthfulness based on the increased number of young crowd vying for interesting career choices in the Garden City. Gone are the days when parents and kids alike had a birds-eye view on what to choose for their subject of interest; where Science, Mathematics, Engineering, Medicine and MBA were the only options for them. With the source of worldly information just a click away, students have become more aware and more open to following their dreams and passions in a quest to making it their future profession. Our education systems are also changing and with it the opportunities to present more varied and alternative courses for the students are taking precedence. Interestingly, as an urban city, Bangalore didn’t start out to be this major IT and education hub that it is today. Perpetrated as a military cantonment, the city developed around the army camp area and has grown to become a safe city drawing more and more students and professionals in. This makes the parents also satisfied and comfortable with the thought that their children are pursuing their dreams in a city which statistically is much safer than the others in India. Besides safety, there are so many wonderful aspects to Bangalore as an education hub.
