Indian education focuses more on theory rather than practical. Whereas in foreign countries; they focus more on practical based learning. And they allow creativity in education. In India; education is a formality, part of routine; every Indian must get a degree in Engineering or Medical stream; whether you learn something or not. In foreign countries; education is taken as a learning process. Foreign education curriculum contains everything from arts to sports along with studies.
