Media & Education

Goa is served by almost all television channels available in India. Channels are received through cable in most parts of Goa. In the interior regions, channels are received via satellite dishes. Doordarshan, the national television broadcaster, has two free terrestrial channels on air.

The All India Radio is the only radio channel in the state, broadcasting in both FM and AM bands.  Major cellular service operators include Reliance Infocomm, Tata Indicom, Hutch, BSNL and Idea!.

Local newspaper publications include the English language Gomantak Times, Navhind Times and Deccan Herald. In addition to these, The Times of India and the Indian Express are also received from Mumbai and Bangalore in the urban areas.

Each taluka is subdivided into villages, each having a school run by the government. However many of the state's residents prefer to enrol in privately run schools which offer better facilities. All schools come under the state SSC whose syllabus is prescribed by the state Education department. There are also two schools run by the all-India ICSE board.

After ten years of schooling, students join a Junior College which offers courses in popular streams such as Science, Arts, Law and Commerce. Additionally, many join three year diploma courses. Two years of college is followed by a professional degree.

The Goa University is the sole university in the state and all colleges are affiliated to it. There are two engineering colleges and one medical college in the state.

Many residents however choose to take up courses in other states as the demand for a course in Goa is more than that available.

Goa is also well-known in India for courses in marine engineering, fisheries, hotel management and cuisine.
