US universities to open centre in Mumbai to clear pupils' doubts

Source : Times of India
Sept 21, 2012

ver 200 US universities have got together to start a centre in Mumbai to redress queries of students.

 

The centre will be inaugurated at Jamnabai Narsee school, JVPD on Friday.

 

The increasing number of complaints by students and parents about touts seems to have prompted the move. Narsee Monjee Educational Trust (NMET) has joined hands with the City of Philadelphia and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to set up Narsee Monjee Centre for Excellence (NMCE). "The aim behind setting up the centre was to eliminate the role of agents who dupe people and misguide about universities and other procedures," said Kanika Choudhary, honorary ambassador of Philadelphia to India. The NMCE will function from an office set up at Jamnabai Narsee school.

 

Apart from information about various courses offered by over 200 universities present in the state of Pennsylvania, students will also get a chance to interact with the head's of institutes to clear their doubts.

 

"We have hired a counsellor who will help students at our centre. Students can apply for an appointment and all their queries will be addressed," said Sujay Jairaj, NMET trustee.

 

"The centre has been set up on a no-profit-no-loss basis and students will get all the information for a minimum fee. Agents have their own vested interests but we have no such bias," he added.

 

Soon, certificate courses for interested applicants will commence. "We will also look at various programmes to improve the education system," he said.
