According to the Institute for International Education (IIE) (2016) – India, China and Brazil account for most of the growth in international students on U.S. campuses. In the year 2015-16, India’s growth outpaced China, with students from India increasing by 25.4% on US campuses. At ELS India, 98% of our students matriculated to universities in the United States of America, and the remaining to destinations in France, Canada and Australia contributing to mobility of Indian students with aspirations for higher education abroad.
The numbers of Indian students seeking higher education abroad continues to be high. ELS India facilitates Early Career Pathway Guidance through seminars at schools, colleges and universities by a team of internationally experienced professionals who discuss career pathways as students chart out their educational objectives. ELS India continues to service them through our innovative unbiased counseling approach defined as a collaborative, student-focused and process-driven service rendered in several important stages that includes a minimum of 40 hours of personalized Counseling, Study Abroad Assessment and University Shortlisting, Application processing, Visa guidance, and Pre-departure assistance. University recommendations to students are not limited to partner universities based on commission, rather each counseling session focuses on students’ developmental objectives and career goals. Our sophisticated ELS Training, Assessment and Certification program allows our internationally educated counselors to draw on their training and personal experiences to provide relevant academic and cultural guidance to students. Through interaction with our certified counselors, students cultivate skills necessary to acculturate and integrate to a globalized economy.
Indians abroad make important contributions to the economy of their homeland as scientists, entrepreneurs and professionals creating new businesses, jobs and innovation. Their contribution also extends to the Indian economy in the form of remittances. Moreover, with scientific, investment and professional environment in India improving to global standards of competitiveness, graduates return home to drive mobility in India as evidenced by high profile returnees like our esteemed Governor of the RBI – Dr. Urjit Patel; 75% of faculty in select departments at IIT Delhi and Powai who are foreign-educated; or notable entrepreneurs like Azim Premji whose contributions are well documented. At ELS India, our knowledgeable team is able to inspire students to achieve their dreams of academic and socio-economic excellence through appropriate career pathways. We understand every student is unique and offer them personalized guidance for career preparation to meet the challenges of global competition. ELS India has provided educational pathways to hundreds of students helping them to matriculate to over 130 colleges and universities in USA, Canada, France and Australia with services extending to Malaysia and Germany.

Asia, and Francophone Africa.
