Are there special requirements for student visas for India? I've been thinking about how a lot of students travel to Europe, South America, and now even China for a few months of study. However, India isn't promoted for study abroad in a lot of US schools, even though it does have some of the best institutions in the world. How hard is it to get a long term student visa in the country? I know a group of people who toured with a choir during spring break, but nothing long term. If I look at study abroad opportunities with grad school programs, I am interested to learn more about the process of obtaining a student visa.
