India today is the second-largest traffic source for Udacity, which saw a five fold growth in enrollment for Nanodegree courses in the past eleven months. “The education system in India is very strong. The IIT’s are fantastic, they date back to the 19th century, but we now live in the 21st century; so it’s time to bring the modern technology into modern people’s lives and allow people to get educated even if they can’t go to campus,” Thrun observes. Udacity currently offers all 7 of its Nanodegree programmes in India.The platform in partnership with Google and Tata Trusts is also offering 1,000 scholarships for the Android Nanodegree to students in the country. The programmes take an average of 6-9 months and costs . 9,800 per month with the company ` refunding 50% of the tuition upon completion.
