Mumbai: UNSW’s India engagement is seeing larger numbers of high-achieving students from India going to UNSW for under-graduate and post-graduate studies cutting across multiple disciplines. This trend is anticipated to continue with growing recognition of UNSW’s core strengths in a strong future-ready pedagogy and a high employability quotient.
In the 2018 QS Rankings, UNSW, Sydney is among the top 50 of the best-ranked institutions in the world. Academic excellence, a robust multicultural experience and a strong focus on employability would continue to be the priority as the university implements its UNSW 2025 Strategy. All of this would be deeply rooted in UNSW’s strict adherence to a value-based education and its commitment to creating a just society.
Aayushi Pandey, a post-graduate from UNSW Business School said that she found her days at UNSW particularly enjoyable because the pedagogy was praxiological, “Solving problems through team-work, made the learning experience unique. What was also extraordinary is that the careers counselling started from the day I joined and not when I was about to complete my studies. UNSW is truly engaged in our future!”
Recognizing that education needs to constantly evolve and cater to the growing and diverse requirements of the student community, UNSW Sydney has a system of constantly studying and evaluating what would add maximum value to students. Consequently, it was decided to move towards a new Academic Calendar from 2019 called UNSW3+, since it would provide future students with the opportunity to tailor and personalize their study experience and prepare for professional success. This sensitivity towards the needs of its students lies at the core of UNSW’s USP.
‘UNSW India Open Days’ are the flagship recruitment events in India, which are a ‘Must-Do’ for any Indian prospective student seeking a world-class international education that singularly provides a global and future-ready experience. The events will kick off in New Delhi on Sunday (18th November at Shangi-la Eros hotel from 2PM – 5PM), followed by Chennai (20th November at Taj Coromandal hotel from 2PM – 5PM), Pune (22nd November at JW Marriott hotel from 10 AM to 1 PM) and Mumbai (23rd November at Nehru Centre from 2PM – 5PM). Students can register directly online for Delhi, Chennai, Pune or Mumbai.
This year, the events have been crafted, for the first time by any international university, with an extraordinary wow-factor that would enable students, parents and educators to magically experience UNSW through interactions with each of its faculties as well as student services, including tailored support from the careers and employability team that supports UNSWs strong academic and employability rankings. A unique experience awaits all those who attend these sessions for which pre-registration is a requirement.
The design, layout and format for the UNSW Open Days 2018 would be interactive and students and parents are invited to experience a day at UNSW at our VR zone; build an impressive LinkedIn profile with our experts; decode their ideal career through our bespoke consultations and meet with the Faculty of their dream program. The UNSW delegation would include representatives from Engineering, Business, Art & Design, Arts & Social Sciences, Science, Medicine, Law, Built Environment and UNSW Canberra, apart from student support services, such as, careers and employability, accommodation and future student services. UNSW Admissions will be present at the sessions and students are encouraged to bring their academic transcript for assessment on the day. Eligible students will receive a waiver of the AUD$125.00 application fee.
This is the time when students would be making the important decision on what to study and where. For a strong learning and living experience, UNSW Sydney in unmatched. Taking advantage of the India Open Days is the way to start. Former Indian diplomat and UNSW India Country Director, Mr. Amit Dasgupta said that UNSW’s India engagement is rooted in collaboration and partnership because “The strong education we provide and the research collaborations we offer are aimed at adding value to India’s demographic dividend.”
