RAGC – Helping Students to Keep Their Dreams Alive
Mumbai,: The Covid-19 pandemic has caused many students to rethink their plans of higher studies abroad. In fact, a recent survey revealed that almost 74% of Indians with aspirations to study abroad are planning to either postpone their study abroad plans to next year or cancel them altogether.
However, this doesn’t have to be the case, as Rustomjee Academy for Global Careers in affiliation with Pearson Education, UK has designed a one year programme that will set a foundation for an International Degree. The Higher National Certificate programme is recognized in more than 70 countries worldwide and over 500 individual universities have formally confirmed that they will accept Pearson qualifications; these include such leading institutes and universities like Oxford, Cambridge, Yale, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth College, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and California Institute of Technology (Caltech). Currently, the programme is available in Mechanical Engineering, Civil and Construction Engineering, Hospitality Management and Business. This Higher National Certificate programme allows students to progress to the 2nd year of degree in respective field of studies at universities abroad and pursue their study abroad goals without wasting a year.
The programme is developed precisely to match international standards and make students ready to pursue higher education in their choice of university. Via Cloud Classrooms, students studying at Mumbai campus are given full access to Pearson curriculum, research materials and assessments. Moreover, students are trained using virtual reality – a fun and engaging teaching methodology that helps students grasp the concepts quickly and implement in real-time.
