Language skills Development
In India, English is not the first language for many students – even for those students who went to English-medium schools. We offer support to the students of UG and PG through The Language Centre and English-Language support group.
This centre works has been offering English language support to students in the undergraduate programme for many years now. The Centre offers intensive tutorials with English language tutors who work with groups of students in each batch to help them overcome barriers erected by English as a language.
Our English Language Support group will help you strengthen your listening, speaking, reading and writing skills. We hold classes every week for 2 to 4 hours in the first semester, in which you work on academic activities to achieve verbal and written competency in English for academic purposes and other communication.
The ELSC has been working with students in the postgraduate programme to support their English language learning. The Centre has been conducting the 2 credit course that is part of the curriculum in the first semester, and offering weekly tutorial support to students who seek the same.
As of 2022 the academic resource committee, has instituted a Peer Tutoring programme at the undergraduate level, with senior students working as peer tutors for students in their first year.
We conduct annual intensive summer programmes for both UG and PG students to orient them to the university, strengthen their English language and quantitative skills, and build a foundation in their chosen discipline.
We make sure that you have spaces to meet your faculty outside the classroom. During the course of your time at the University, you will be mentored by a faculty member on your academic and personal journey. Reach out for support on problems you may face in the classroom or outside.
We offer several workshops and one on one mentoring sessions to develop the skills and competencies that will be most useful for placements and in your work. These include areas like how to identify sectors of your interests for work or higher education, communication, project management, digital skills, data analysis and major-specific advanced study, resume writing and interviewing skills, etc. These are offered by our faculty as well as other specialist trainers.
It also plans to offer interdisciplinary intensive courses and workshops that involve collaborations between different majors in the UG and PG programmes.
