GUWAHATI, AUGUST 22, 2019: An event was hosted by ‘Admissify’, an online based education services and immigration assistance platform, on Wednesday at Hotel Palacio, Guwahati to introduce and felicitate the new batch of students who have been selected for study abroad in the coming months. Among the students who have been selected in 2019 are: Dhritica Borah (University College, Dublin, Ireland), Leema Kalita (University of Glasgow, UK), Dhrubananda Pathak (University of Liverpool, UK), Jesmine Sultana (Coventry University, UK), Aminul Haque (Jacob’s University, Germany), Hrishikesh Pathak (Westminster International College, Malaysia), Priyanuj Bhuyan (Recording Arts College, Canada), & Arinav Nanda Choudhury (Westminster International College, Malaysia).
Speaking on the occasion, Ishant Agarwal, co-founder Admissify cum vice president of CJ DARCL Group, said, “Admissify is a first of its kind organisation that is set to change the conventional method of counselling and admissions experience that an aspirant undergoes. In this age of information, prospective students can find varied information from multiple sources in a very fragmented marketplace.” He added that what is really required is a holistic source of unbiased and transparent information which can provide clients with in-depth information about prospects in a foreign country with the associated assistance.
Prof SU Chouhury, former HoD Chemistry, Cotton University, who also addressed the audience on the occasion said, “In my long experience of being in selection bodies for different organisations, I have observed that a student with a stint of study abroad gets preference over those who have studied all through in one country only.”
Earlier during 2017-18, Admissify has helped about two dozen students from Assam for going abroad to pursue higher and technical education. The first student of Assam to go abroad for higher studies with Admissify support was Tauhida Mazumder of Guwahati who got admitted to Heriot Watt University, UK for pursuing the MSc course in Construction Management. Admissify got her a 100% scholarship from the British Council.
For the benefit of the students who would be joining overseas universities in the coming days, a panel discussion on “Study Abroad: Cultural Challenges in Global Learning & Work Opportunities” was also organised. The participants at the discussion were Aminul Haque (Jacobs University, Bremen, Germany), Sayeed Alam Choudhury (Senior Analyst, Trip Adviser, Southampton UK) & Saikh Md Sabah Al Ahmed (Cotton University, Guwahati). The discussion was moderated by Nurul Islam Laskar, PR Consultant & Motivational Speaker.
While Abhinav Gogoi, Head of Career Counselling & International Relations, Assam Valley School, Tezpur made a power point presentation for the benefit of the students going abroad for higher studies, Dr Dayananda Pathak, former Principal, Pragjyotish College Guwahati, gave tips to the students for a successful stint while abroad. Suaid M Laskar, Regional Manager, North East India, Admissify offered the formal vote of thanks to all present on the occasion.
