Study In Delhi - Explore Universities in Delhi

Study in Delhi, and find the best universities in Delhi.

Welcome to Delhi, India’s capital, financial hub and fastest growing city. It’s also one of the most hectic, inspiring and crowded cities in the world. Prepare for a sensory overload.

This is a city of ancient monuments, brilliant museums, culture and some of the finest food in all of Asia. The contrast between New Delhi and Old Delhi serves as a metaphor for the development of India itself, making this a dazzling place to study as an international student. 

Study in Delhi?

Delhi is a centre of education in India, with more than 500,000 students attending over 150 universities and colleges in the city’s district. You can study an undergraduate degree in Delhi at some of the following places:

Delhi also has nine other deemed universities where you can study.

The quality and content of degrees at universities in Delhi varies widely, so make sure you research your chosen institution carefully and speak to tutors before confirming your place. Most undergraduate degrees in Delhi last between 3-4 years, although this depends on the subject and mode of study you choose.

Immigration and visas

Indian student visas are issued for the duration of your undergraduate course in Delhi up to a maximum of five years. In order to qualify for a student visa, you will need to demonstrate the following:

  • You have a confirmed place on a course at a recognised education institution
  • You are not already in the country on a tourist or business visa
  • You have paid all relevant visa fees
You can apply for a student visa either at your national Indian embassy or online. Student visas are multiple entry but do not allow you to work while in India. Students with spouses will be able to apply for a spousal visa for their partner to join them.

Accommodation and living costs

Most universities in Delhi will provide students with accommodation, although this may be in the form of shared rooms in single sex hostels. Although this is a great way to meet fellow students, some international students will opt for private accommodation.

Delhi is divided into five main regions by geography – North, South, East, West and Central. As a student, where you live will depend on which university you study at, but most students tend to live in the Northern part of the city, around Kamala, Model Town and Kingsway Camp.

Expect to pay around INR12,000 for a one bedroom flat in Delhi.
