Dominance of English
English is a global language, and Indians embraced it with gusto right from the beginning. This puts us in an advantaged position. There are many countries in the European Union and Asia that does not have English as their medium of instruction.
Communication, cultural interaction and understanding falls short during organized educational tours and exchange programs between students in such countries. Such problems are practically vanquished in India owing to the dominance of English in the education sector, and thus it becomes a fertile ground for various study tours.
Hospitable and Friendly Locals
The warmth and affection that the country and its people display towards foreigners also becomes a primary reason why India is a hot spot for study tours. It is not easy to navigate through a country which is a treasure trove of customs, rituals, traditions and practices.
But Indians are a hospitable lot and make your stay and understanding of the local nuances and culture much easier and more fun. Lets just say you will return back from India knowing much more than the ubiquitous namaste.

With the USA and India ties strengthening from pillar to pillar and many Indians making their mark in the USA in diverse fields, there is a renewed interest in India in the US. Consequently, we see a lot of study tours from US to India.
This not only improves cultural and economic ties between the two countries but also puts India and its education in the global spotlight. Its said that what the US does, the world follows suit. We see an increasing number of countries organizing and interested in study tours to India.
