According to latest predictions, there are more than 660 recognized universities with over 35000 colleges in India and all these bear around 315 million enrolled students in thousands of courses. In upcoming five years, these numbers are estimated to grow by around 40%.

With such great count of colleges and the courses,but enormous competition,  it seems very tough to select the best college and course combination for a fresh secondary school pass-out. As a career-making point of view, it is very crucial to chose the perfect college and a producing course very wisely. Just a single wrong decision and you won’t be able to even regret later.

  • So, how to chose the perfect combination of a college and a course?
  • Which college offers the best BBA courses and which does have the most reputable engineering degrees?
  • How much is the fee and which one is the cheapest?
  • Should I go for this college or that?
  • Private or Governmental, which will be better for this specific degree?

These are just a sample of questions a student must ask before paying hundreds of thousands to an institution. Well, as it is said, internet has the answer of almost everything. In this reference of selecting the best career options, world-wide-web is again the best guide. There are several education guiding websites which offer exceptional details about the variety of courses offered by premier institutions. They are free to access and fun to browse. You can search their database (directory)by choosing location / institute and course to find the perfect degree at perfect value. Besides of these, these career guiding websites are also helpful to students as they guide students by providing other educational information like exam results, admission deadlines, ‘how to’ guides and so on.  In this article, I have tried to list such 10 best college search engines and directories in India. I hope this list will be worth a read and bookmarking.

Focused on clutter free college searching, CollegeDunia (hinglish: The World of Colleges) is no doubt a perfect destination for anyone searching for a prefect college to study. No matter what type of colleges you are looking for, CollegeDunia always has the answer . From Computer Science Colleges to normal graduation degree offering institutions , from IIT Kharagpur to Lucknow University– they have all types of institutions listed in their directory. In addition to these, they provide regular career advice to readers through CollegeDunia blog.

GETMYUNI is a powerful search engine for colleges where you can find academies of your choice, explore your favorite colleges – in & out, read reviews & get other useful details. Not just this, you can also find information about various scholarships, entrance exams & much more.


htcampus was child website of prestigious national newspaper Hindustan Times, which covered admission details and campus life of colleges all around the nation.



India College Search is well recognized guide to find and apply for different courses in the colleges.
They have listed 13000+ colleges in their database, which is fairly a big number but won’t fit well to your expectations, if you are looking for colleges in infamous areas.



A side-project of job-giant, could be definitely a trusted guide. They have all types of information available and can outmatch any of the websites listed here. But the here-there advertisements and metro-centric directory spoil average user experience.



Once a competitive exams focused website, Minglebox has now turned into a college directory.



Dedicated to career-related news, Career India also give information about variety of colleges and courses through their college n course finder tools.



Working since 2010, India college info may have not been able to attract good readership due to limited database but is still a very good guide for students in metro cities.


Admission Jankari (hinglish: Admission Details) is just another college search engine  which has its own tools to help you find a better college.


Like India College Search, India College Directory is quite helpful in finding a great college for your degree. They also provide a free toll-free help-line which you can access by dialing 1800-102-5277.

So, this was all from my end. I hope you will find these search engines useful in you next college hunt.

Even from them, Prepskool is the best as their courses and lessons are dynamic and easy to understand. There is also a magazine/blog called sports patrika, they have less but very fine lessons on Indian Army GD, CDS and NDA. Check out:
