Once the University receives all the applications, they will be assessed and the selected students will be intimated about the further step which is a Group Discussion and Personal Interview (GDPI) round. The students will be provided with all the assistance required to access the portal so that the process takes place smoothly without any glitches. All they require is a smartphone and an internet connection.
“COVID 19 has forced all of us to reimagine how we deliver an engaging and holistic learning experience for students. While it presents its challenges, it is also a massive opportunity to break out of old habits and create new, impactful, relevant modes of learning that take advantage of technology and this moment. After carefully analyzing the scrutiny of the situation we have arrived at this decision of taking our admission process online. SBUP promotes the wellness of its students and is ready to take all the necessary measures to make sure that this pandemic does not affect the academic career of the students.” said Prof. Dr. Col A Balasubramanian, Chancellor, Sri Balaji University, Pune.
“For the last 2 months ever since the lockdown has started, Sri Balaji University has slowly migrated to online classroom sessions by using Microsoft teams for our junior students. Apart from the online classes, we are in interaction with our students on a periodic basis which otherwise we normally do it our auditoria. We have successfully completed our fourth-semester examinations also by using the same Microsoft product. An open paper examination followed with an online viva by our faculties who are from the respective subject matter expertise. Now we have extended the same approach to conducting our online admission process as well without even compromising the quality standards, which otherwise we used to maintain. Thanks to Microsoft Team” said Prof. Dr Biju G Pillai, Senior Director IT and Admissions, Sri Balaji University, Pune.
