What is AISHE?

AISHE

AISHE, or the All India Survey for Higher Education, is an initiative by the HRD Ministry of India. The annual web-based survey aims to determine the state of higher educational institutions in India and find areas for improvement. Students enrolled in higher educational institutions will respond to the AISHE survey.

This survey can rate their college on different categories like teachers, exam results, education finance, programmes, student enrolment, and infrastructure. The data collected in this survey is used to make informed policy decisions and conduct better research in higher education.

 

What are the Objectives of AISHE?

AISHE has been established as a platform for students to discuss the good and bad aspects of higher education in India. The survey is designed with two main objectives –

  • Identifying all institutions of higher learning in India
  • Collecting data from all higher education institutions to improve the state of higher education in India
