Mumbai is still stereotyped as commercial hub or Bollywood centre, and not as an educational destination. Many North-East people come to Mumbai in search of job in varied sector, while only a few arrived for higher studies. It is wrong to presume that there are no good educational institutions in Mumbai.

Mumbai has many good institutions for Graduation and Post Graduation studies (including Phd). According to 'India's best college - 2013', Mumbai has few graduates colleges listed in top 20. St. Xavier College (3rd), SK Shri Narsee Monjee College (9th), Somaiya College (15th), Sophia College (20th). Some other notable ones are HR college of commerce & economics, Wilson College, Jai Hind college, etc.

Top Indian engineering institutions such as
IIT-Bombay, Sardar Patel,
VJTI,
DJ Sangvi,
Vivekanand Institute of Technology,
Don Bosco Institute of Technology,
Xavier institute of engineering,
S K Somaiya, etc
are in Mumbai.

Top Management institutions like
SP Jain Institute of management,
TISS- Mumbai,
NITIE,
Shailesh Mehta Management - IIT Bombay,
KJ Somaiya Institute of Management, etc
are also in Mumbai.

Apart from Arts, Science, Engineering and Management, Mumbai is also a good place for many other professional courses.

SNDT University & Nirmala Niketan, provides many professional courses like, Food Science & Nutrition, Resource Management, Human Development, Textiles, Bachelor of Social Work Bachelor of Library & Information Science, Bachelor of Home Science etc.

Most of the institutions in Mumbai also provide graduation and post graduation professional courses like Mass Media, Banking, Finance, Pharmacy, information technology, Accounting, Financial Market etc.

India's top professional Premier institution like,
Tata institute of Social Science (TISS) Mumbai,
National Institute of Fashion Technology Mumbai (NIFT-M),
Indian Institute of Technology - Bombay (IIT-B),
International Institute of population studies (IIPS),
Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR),
Homi Baba Institute of Education Science (HBIES),
Indira Gandhi Institute of Development & Research (IGIDR),
Institute of Forensic Science (IFS) etc.
are in all located in Mumbai.

TISS Mumbai has some interesting unique PG courses, like Master in, Social Work, Mental Health, Children & Family, Tribal studies, Livelihood, Health Administration, Human Resource (MBA), MA in Social Entrepreneur, Media and Culture studies, Development Studies, Women Studies, Counseling & psychology, Regulatory Governance, Water policy and Governance, Climate Change, etc.

It provides free education to students belonging to Schedule Tribes (ST) or Schedule Caste (SC) or OBC. IGIDR a premier institute for M.sc in economics (Established by RBI) also provides free education to ST/SC/OBC plus stipend. IIPS, TIFT and HBIES provide monthly scholarship to students. IIT-B, NIFT and IFS also provide scholarship to deserving students.

Getting admission in good institution in Mumbai is not very difficult if one is a Christian and also a ST/SC/OBC. All the institutions (including the premier) have reservation police as per Government of India, i.e. 7.5 % for ST/SC/OBC.

Also Christian institutions like St. Xavier, Bon Bosco, Sophia, Wilson, St. Andrew College, provides at least 70 % reservation for Christian and reserved categories. Maharashtra governments' policy to provide quality and affordable education reduces the cost of education to a great extent. It hardly cost 5000/- per year for BA or B.sc.

Even for the professional courses, the fees are very reasonable; it's mostly below 25000/- per year. And again if one belongs to ST/SC/OBC, you will have to pay much lesser amount than the usual amount charged.

Apart from good institution, easy admission and reasonable fees, Mumbai is known for good and cheap transportation, good weather; and most importantly good helping and friendly people. Commutation is easy and cheap as there is local train, bus and auto service.

The weather of Mumbai is good, not extreme like those education hubs in other states. The local people are very friendly and helping, so one can anytime travel alone without any trouble. Anyone will guide you and help you. Also they don't discriminate North East people. Thus students face no problem of attending classes, travelling, visiting friends or studying.

Naga Student Union Mumbai (NSUM) will very much be willing and happy to help any North East brethren looking for admission in Mumbai.
