It is noteworthy that every year Cambodian students receive their degree in various disciplines from Banaras Hindu University (BHU), Varanasi, one of the most prestigious universities in India. Increasingly, Cambodian students have reached a remarkable number starting from 2005. For the session 2012-13, the number has increased up to 38 students (monks/males/females) making BHU the most preferable university for Cambodian students in India. Many factors contribute to this development; education quality, all courses of study available, very affordable fee, peaceful university campus, all around development and welcoming environment. One important thing is that the university is located in the State of Uttar Pradesh (U.P.) where Lord Buddha preached his first sermon to the five Bhikkhus at Saranath. Hence this location is attractive to students from different Buddhist countries; they have a chance both to study and to worship the Buddhist sites and it is convenient to proceed to many other Buddha’s sites in India. 

Upon receiving their degree, some of Cambodian newly graduated students are pursuing higher study in Ph.D. and Master in the same university. It is interesting that Dr Karan Singh, chancellor, Banaras Hindu University (BHU) while addressing the 95th convocation ceremony of the university in the varsity premises on Sunday, said, "Learning is a continuous process that should never end. Students must not seal their knowledge bank after taking degrees in the convocation ceremony but should be receptive towards diversified learning."
