Best place to go for editing degree course is Film and Television Institute of India Pune. Till the time you get started with your course make use of the time to learn video editing on YouTube. You can get free tutorials for any video editing software. Learn the basics, shoot your own footage even with phone and edit it to make short films, start with 10 seconds. More you edit more you become familiar with the application more intutive it becomes and you grow towards becoming a cinematographer, video editor and a film maker. Trust me it is not difficult. I would strongly recommend to get a legal software. It will not crash and you will get all free updates. I use Final Cut Pro.
