Counselling

Counselling or career counselling is a process where the counsellor helps the student to understand themselves better. A good career counsellor can chart a perfect roadmap for the student to achieve their future goals.

Our career counsellors are experts at judging and assessing the aptitude of the child, their character, interests, and other aspects that help them create a personalized roadmap that suggests the best career options from all available options.

Our career counsellors will have one-on-one sessions with the student to discuss the various factors that will help discover future prospects. They will draw a complete profile-based one-on-one session and a questionnaire answered by the student. A deep understanding of the student allows the counsellor to guide the student and the family on the right path in selecting the right track and course.

There are numerous courses to choose from, such as Hospitality, Business Management, Law, Literature, MBA, Medicine and many more.
