Indian graduates who have studied in the UK say that they earn above average salaries in their work life. 51% of all Indians graduating from the UK say they earn above or well above average and 90 per cent of women in this group say they earn average or above. 60% of Indian respondents surveyed said they were in their current jobs because it was exactly the type of work they wanted to do, with 82 per cent saying they are satisfied or very satisfied with their careers.

"The job satisfaction of UK graduates is higher, because a chance of getting the job of one’s choice markedly increases. This also leads to more effective work performance and logically, more recognition for one’s work. The likelihood of UK graduates working in India in managerial roles was 23% higher than the global average," said Vivienne Stern, Director, Universities UK International (UUKi), which is a collective body representing more than 130 universities from England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

The data was released in the Indian Graduate Outcomes 2019 study, conducted by UUKi. There has been a 42% increase in the number of Indian students going to the UK for studies in the last one year.

A delegation of senior representatives from 20 UK Universities is currently in India to engage Indian stakeholders to understand the vision and priority areas of the Indian government, governing bodies and higher education institutes to assess the role UK universities and the UK can play to further strengthen the relationship for future collaboration particularly in education and research.

"We are very excited to provide student mobility opportunities for up to 200 UK students to India and contributing to the internationalisation of Indian higher education institutions in line with the objectives of the ‘Study in India programme’ of the Government of India," said Barbara Wickham OBE, Director India, British Council.
