India offers enormous opportunity for Finnish Educational Export. India’s ambitious vision is to become a global provider of educational knowledge at the top level. In India alone, there are 1.3 million schools, over 720 universities, 45 000 colleges and 10 000 Industrial Training Institutes in India. The total government spending on education is 3.7 % of GDP. In 2010, a “Right to Education Act” was implemented and it guarantees free and compulsory education to every child between 6 to 14 years.
The education bill has improved school infrastructure and increased enrollment, but there is still a great disparity between rural India and the bigger cities in which connectivity exists and digitalization is increasing rapidly. There are also substantial differences between the public and the private sector.
Together, Finland and India can address the challenges by sharing knowledge and provide the Finnish know- how to be scaled up to masses with local partners and become part of the India’s aim to develop its status to become The World Univeristy.
