India’s higher education system is the world’s third largest in terms of students, next to China and the United States. India educates approximately eleven per cent of its youth in higher education. India is remarkably transforming its higher education landscape. Yet, the country lacks the critical mass in higher education. The overall scenario does not match with the global quality standards. Hence there is enough justification for increased assessment of the quality of country’s educational institutions. This book evaluates the different dimensions of India’s higher education system. It begins with the glimpses of education in ancient, medieval and colonial times followed by national educational policies adopted in independent India. Issues and concerns of different forms of higher education such as Medical education, Engineering education, Management education, Teacher education, Distance education, etc. are also highlighted. Important facets of higher education such as accreditation, regulation, privatization, financing, technology use, linkage with industry, internationalization, research are also critically commented. Critical appraisals by important Committees Commissions appointed by governments are given at appropriate places. RUSA, latest development in education is also explained. Printed Pages: 258
