INK INDIA is an excellence initiative towards promoting higher education. To bridge the gap between the educational system in India and foreign countries, the students have to be equipped with certain technical requirements and a basic understanding of the system. Indian curriculum is not in par with the foreign standards in some aspects such as updated curriculum and state of the art awareness. The students selected to the universities to pursue their Masters face problems in understand the new system, exam requirements, way of approaching the subject, cultural differences, etc. This program equips and prepares the students in all aspects so that the students do not face difficulties in getting adapted to the new system.
INK INDIA is a joint initiative of students in various countries who pursue their higher education abroad. INK believes these mentors are the only reliable people to guide the aspiring students who would like to do their masters abroad. INK INDIA also aims to eliminate the CONSULTANCY approach in higher education processing and introduce one on one mentoring directly from students studying abroad and also universities.
The objectives of INK INDIA initiative are:
1. Create awareness and mentor about the higher educational opportunities abroad through INK Chapters and partner universities
2. Prepare and Equip the students with necessary skill set required for foreign education through Foundation program
The program is ideally applicable for students from their first year of bachelor studies. The students will be mentored in every stage and equipped with skill set and profile building activities required for their admission. For the final years students, we will organize a fast track- intensive mentoring process.
Students participating in the mentoring program will undergo one on one mentoring sessions in:
1. Career Clarity
2. Country mentoring
3. University/Course mentoring
4. Application guidance
5. Scholarship mentoring
6. Post admit/visa mentoring
7. Pre departure meet
8. Buddy Program in the respective countries after arrival
9. INKarriere initiative – Career Guidance in Germany (for students selected in German universities)
We also organize direct interactive sessions with universities abroad so that the students clarify their doubts directly with the international office.
Apart from these activities, the most important part in the path of a student aspiring to pursue higher education abroad is PROFILE BUILDING. In INK INDIA program, the students will undergo
1. Semester exchange to a foreign university
2. Summer Schools
3. International certification programs
4. International Workshops
5. Projects in partner institutions
6. Language and Test Preparation
and many more international opportunities through our partner universities in Germany and UK.
These opportunities are provided in the course of the program and these serve as excellent value addition to the student’s profile for admission.
INK currently has 150 mentors (students and researchers) studying in various universities across the globe and the mentoring sessions will be taken by the respective mentors.
