Aspects such as academic achievements, community involvement, leadership qualities, and discipline among students make Manthan and its students stand out.“
While Sadhana from FLAME University noted, “During my several interactions with Manthan students, I have observed that they have a sense of curiosity and ask questions not just about a single academic area but about the breadth of the programmes that we offer. They have submitted strong application SOPs and most of them have good co-curriculars and social awareness. They are conscientious and have good communication skills.”
Students attending the fair had an opportunity to interact with the several university representatives and get an understanding on the requirements and application process involved. Sohan, a Cambridge student, claimed, “This fair was a wonderful opportunity for me to explore new universities. The representatives were incredibly helpful in addressing all my queries that helped me broaden my choices with my university applications.”
Fairina Siddiqui, College and Career Counsellor at Manthan, emphasised, “By facilitating direct engagement between students, parents, and leading universities, Manthan continues to play a pivotal role in navigating student aspirations. Holding equal importance for universities, this engagement allows them to gain a realistic understanding of the school’s environment and the calibre of its students.”
Ruchika Upadhyay, the Vice Principal and Head of Academics at Manthan, expressed, “Education, Engagement & Exposure have always been prime areas of focus for us at Manthan and Im elated with the ways we have been able to establish a forum for our students, parents and best universities in India on an ongoing basis. This has been helping our students with additional exposure and enough time to perform their own research and prepare for the choice of course and university. I also wish to congratulate the team of Future Pathways who have been at the core in making this happen in a seamless way.”
