Also, the PSR conducted its first outreach programme, Pathfinder, an everything-about-higher-education fair at Coimbatore Institute of Technology (CIT), Coimbatore on December 14, 2014.
Pathfinder, the one day event, brought educational institutes, embassies, exam coaching institutes and banks under one roof. Students aspiring to study in other countries for their Graduate and Doctoral degrees got to know about all the procedures involved, from the preparation needed to the facilities, travel and financial aids available.
Aimed to be highly interactive and easily accessible, Pathfinder made educational embassies like British Council and University of Hertfordshire available for interaction with the visitors. Fluency Centre, The Chopras, Career Zone and GRE Toppers were among the qualification exam counselling centres at the event, which helped the students know about the preparation needed for various universities. Also, details about the prospective financial aids were briefed by the UCO Bank.
Pragyan, known nationwide for its 4 day techno-managerial festival at NIT Trichy, believes that initiatives like these provide a platform for students to explore the various opportunities available. Pragyan 2015, the main festival will be held from 26 February to March 1 at NIT Trichy.
