As an applicant or a parent of an applicant, it is natural that you would have a number of doubts in your mind regarding admissions. While in normal circumstances, these doubts could have been answered by simply walking into the campus or attending open houses, given the current situation, this sounds like a distant dream. However, new-age institutions like Pearl Academy, one of India’s leading institute for fashion, design, business and media studies, are not oblivious to this problem and are coming up with innovative solutions to tackle all your admission related queries.
Pearl Academy hosts ‘Aagman – 2020’, their annual open house to address any admission related issues parents or applicants could be facing. Through this event, the institute allows parents to have one-on-one interaction with faculty members, career counsellors, and other mentors of the institute and discuss their doubts and problems. This event is well received by parents and students alike.
This year, however, these counselling sessions were conducted online. Not only were they highly effective in the current scenario, but also an important step for parents and applicants who needed guidance. So far, more than 16 online counselling sessions have been conducted across schools and campuses through Blackboard – a digital learning platform that Pearl Academy has been using for quite a while. These online counselling sessions are an opportunity for students as well as parents to get all their questions answered. These online sessions are attended by the Campus Presidents, Campus Directors, Faculty members and they take the parents through the course structure, fees & financial support options, campus infrastructure, hostel facilities & career avenues along with other relevant information that comes in to be really useful for applicants to make informed decisions.
Pearl Academy has always believed that learning should never stop and takes pride in being a pioneer of change when it comes to creative careers in the country and across the globe. Through its new-age courses and industry-ready curriculum, Pearl Academy has always worked hard to transform the quality of creative education in the country and help students with a creative bent to transform their passion into a career. This online open house is just one of the many steps Pearl has taken in order to allow students to stay focussed on their career objectives even in these tough times.
Pearl Academy is one of the few educational institutions that has made it a point to deploy digital tools as a part of their regular curriculum. This has helped Pearl in making it through these difficult times without lowering with the quality of education that they provide to their students. Pearl has always taught its students through an advance digital Learning Management System. Even before the campus had to shut down due to the lockdown, 20% of the overall curriculum was digital and taught online. Now, this has been scaled up to 100%. In addition to this, Pearl allows free access to Coursera and Business of Fashion courses to allow students to develop new skills and pick up relevant certifications.
In addition to taking monumental measures for their present students, Pearl Academy has also made the admissions journey incredibly convenient for their applicants. The institute has brought in a mobile app, with important features to help aspiring pearlites, and offer assistance and support to them. Aside from this, Pearl also declared that the entrance examination that takes place each year during the admission process would now be conducted online on 18th April 2020. These initiatives talk volumes about Pearl’s dedication towards the industry, its students, and the future of education.
