What is tertiary education, can someone explain to me?

I am doing research on education in many countries around the world, and now I am writing about higher education in India. I would really appreciate if someone can explain to me what is tertiary education in detail, and tell me more about  higher education sector in general. I also want to write about online higher education courses that many students are now considering in different parts of the world, as students can study them from any location on Internet. Thank you so much for your help in advance.

I think I can help you with what you are looking for. I was studying sociology, and I was doing a lot of research for a long time on education-related subjects. When it comes to India, higher education developed in a great way during the last 20-30 years. Many universities for students have been built around the country, and they are specialized in many different and random fields. Now there are more than 700 universities in India in which students can study whatever they want. I believe that is one of the main reasons India has become so developed right now economically and scientifically, and it has also become one of the main leading countries in many various industrial fields. As to what tertiary education is all about, it mainly describes any educational activities a student can take part in after graduation from high school. Thus, any higher education can be considered as tertiary education. In addition, if a student signs up for any educational courses after high school, that would also be considered as a tertiary education. Tertiary education has been known to be very important for many students so that they can get a university degree and find a job with good income later on after graduation, but that is not the fact anymore, as there are many university graduates around the world who struggle to find good paying jobs after graduation. The sector of higher education, in general, is a sector that is made up of universities and higher educational institutions. This is a sector that exists usually in many governments around the world, and it should receive support from the government so that it can always work on improving higher education process for students in different universities. It is true that online higher educational courses have become so popular among many students now. There are many online websites that offer various courses for free for students from around the world. All one needs is a good Internet connection and a portable computer so that he can study from anywhere he wants. There are also some online universities that can make it able for any student to get a recognized bachelor’s or master’s degree online without having to be at a specific location. I wish you have found my answer helpful. Good luck with your research.

I totally agree that higher education in India has recently improved significantly. Many universities have been built, and now many Indian students have a great opportunity to get a decent education in reputable Indian universities. That definitely somehow led to the industrial revolution they are having now. India is a great and a beautiful country and it deserves to be better because of its hardworking and loyal people. Talking about online educational courses, I can say that now there is an educational revolution going on the Internet, as nowadays people can learn whatever they want online and receive accredited certificates. Many students prefer to study online while working in other countries and traveling the world. I totally support online education and I believe it will be very timesaving for students in general.
