Education in Bangalore

Bangalore - The Education Hub

Bangalore, popularly known as the Silicon Valley of India, has found its place among the top educational hubs of India, where one can exploit a number of options for both schools and colleges following different syllabi, and the parents have the opportunity of choosing a syllabus that they feel best suits the requirements of their child.

Secondary Schools

The Traditional Schools The syllabus pattern followed in the secondary schools includes CBSE, ICSE, NIOS and of course, the Karnataka State Board syllabus. NIOS stands for National Institute of Open Schooling, which aims for sustainable inclusive learning, with a universal and flexible access to quality school education and skills development. The state board students are required to appear for SSLC exams at the end of class X after which they become PUC students.

The Alternate Schools Apart from the conservative form of schools, Bangalore has also a very large option of alternate schools. These schools have moved away from the traditional methodology of teaching, and here the children are allowed to learn and explore in a more carefree and informal environment. Most of these schools follow the principle of the renowned philosopher J. Krishnamurti who believed that "Tradition becomes our security and where the mind is secure, it begins to decay". These schools do not follow the traditional method of yearly assessments. The students appear for the IGCSE and A Level exams at the end of Class X and XII.

The International Schools Bangalore also caters to the needs of students seeking world class International education. They come under the purview of IB and IGCSE, which focus on holistic education.

Colleges

Bangalore colleges run under the jurisdiction of both the State and some deemed universities. Apart from Bangalore University, Mysore University etc., there are universities such as Christ University and University of Agricultural Sciences, Karnataka Veterinary, Animal and Fisheries University. Most of the engineering colleges are overseen by the Visvesvaraya Technological University. The Medical colleges in the state are run under the jurisdiction of Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences. There is also the Manipal University and deemed universities like NITK, NIHMANS, etc. More...

Bangalore is indeed at the forefront as far as education is concerned. It boasts of some of the best colleges like IIMB and IISC. It has made a significant contribution towards the quality of education in India.
