Guidance for Competitive Exams
Teachers in college are very committed in guiding students outside class in case they need facilitation for preparation of competitive exams like NET, SET, Registered Dietitian (RD) etc. on an informal basis.
Career counselling for Home Science Degree Programme is carried out with the objectives of making the students aware of the courses they will be mastering during their degree programme; making them acquainted with future prospects of the specializations, job prospects and opportunities for further studies.
Further, we believe that our alumnae are one of our strongest advocates. Thus, departments invite their alumnae every now and then to take sessions/workshops/for talks, guide young minds through their experience of work world.
The faculty encourages the slow learners, gifted students and the students who need support in academics, theory and practical, for improving their performance. The classes are conducted without disturbing the regular instructional hours.
Soft Skills Development
Soft skills consist of personal attributes/qualities that enable one to manage different domains of one’s life and interpersonal relationships more effectively and harmoniously. The college conducts different programmes/sessions/workshops aimed at soft skills training targeted to enhance these attributes in students that are essential for growth and success in personal and professional life.
If a learner does not have the suitable subject background for direct entry to first year Master’s level, or he/she has not studied the relevant subjects in the required depth then he/she might need to undertake a bridging course to bring the skills and knowledge of the learner to in level with graduate learners from our institute.
