Sujata Sen, East India Director, has informed the British Council that the scholarship program, which was recently launched is a part of the Great Britain council’s campaign, that has commenced in the year 2012. At present, nearly 30,000 Indian students are pursuing their higher studies in United Kingdom. Sujata Sen has said that  in addition to the scholarships, a new rule for visa has been put into effect , through which the students are authorized to get employed in any venture of entrepreneurship after their completion of their course of study.  The prominent courses pursued by the International students are Post Graduate courses in Engineering, Medical Sciences, Bio-Sciences and Management. 13th March, 2014 had been the intended date to begin the 2-day educational seminar.
