Universities in Sikkim
Sikkim, located in the lap of mountains, is one of the most beautiful states of India and hence one of the best places to visit for a tourist. However, over the last couple of years, it is not only the tourism industry, but also the education sector of Sikkim that is making headlines. It has improved leaps and bounds in the education sector and thanks to a new wave of awareness among its people on the need to have a sound formal learning for a prosperous life.
University affiliated Colleges in Sikkim are the primary centers of higher education in the state. The Universities have students from India as well as abroad for its unique curriculum designs, teaching methods, flexible academic programs and state-of-the-art infrastructure. Apart from regular postgraduate programs, integrated undergraduate-postgraduate programs of 5 years are also offered.
The rate of literacy in the state has seen a phenomenal rise from only 68.81% according to the 2001 census reports to more than 82% as recorded in the 2011 census counting. This is indeed a commendable rate achieved by a state that also boasts of a low rate of population.
