  • Fact Figures
    Did you know that
    More than 300,000 students compete for less than 1350 general seats (out of 1700 total seats) in the IIMs (2008 figures) which makes it even more selective than all the top US business schools put together.
    The overall acceptance rate ranges from around 0.1% to 0.4% of the applicants depending on the rank of the individual IIM, compared with the acceptance rate of around 5-10% in the top US schools, e.g. 14.3% for Harvard University Admissions and 7.9% for Stanford University in 2006.
  • Have you considered studying abroad, but are not sure whether it's worth your money and time? If you ask anybody who has studied abroad, he or she will most certainly tell you that it is a life-changing experience and one of the most rewarding things he or she has ever done. Perhaps you're not certain what benefits you can reap from an extended stay in a foreign country. Here are some excellent reasons why you should take the plunge
    But before doing that I would like to take this opportunity to dispel some of the common myths associated with Studying Abroad.
    Myth 1# I don't have enough money to study abroad. 
    Studying abroad often costs the same or even less than spending the same money at your home campus. If you qualify for financial aid, you can receive aid while studying in an credit-earning study abroad program. Some countries give you the option to earn part-time while studying Abroad.
  • Myth #3
    No matter what your degree, gender, ethnic background, or interests, studying in a foreign country can benefit you personally, academically, and professionally. There are a myriad of programs available around the world. There are sure to be several that suit your needs and interests.
  • Say all the points
    If you talk to anybody who has ever studied abroad like Mr. Talha they will likely tell you that any worries or concerns they had before they departed melted away once they arrived in their host country. They will confirm to you that their experience was well worth any extra expense or time it may have taken and that the benefits they have experienced as a result are more numerous and lasting than they ever could have imagined.
  • The Student Partners Program (SPP) is an administrative framework designed and implemented in partnership between the Canadian visa offices in India and the Association of Canadian Community Colleges (ACCC). The SPP was launched in April 2009 as a pilot to improve student recruitment outcomes. Due to the improvement achieved during the pilot, the program is being extended and expanded in 2010. 
    The Student Partners Program (SPP) is a pilot project designed and implemented in partnership between the Canadian visa offices in India and the Association of Canadian Community Colleges (ACCC).  Twenty of ACCC's member colleges have been involved in the pilot which was launched in April 2009.   The participating institutions were selected on the basis of 2008 volumes. 
    This pilot program aims to test a model for expediting the student visa process and delivering higher approval rates while maintaining program integrity.  The SPP is an administrative framework that involves close cooperative partnership and feedback from the member colleges to ensure student compliance with the terms of their study permits. 
    All Study Permit application checklists have been revised and improved as a result of the SPP framework to help students make simpler applications.   All students are strongly encouraged to submit supporting documents as indicated in the checklists to facilitate the processing of their applications.
    The pilot is being evaluated and an announcement will be made in January as to whether it will be extended in 2010 and if so, which institutions will be involved. Students interested in submitting applications under the SPP  will be  encouraged to contact the member college for information.  At this time, SPP is open to Indian nationals only.  Application submission under the SPP is at the discretion of each member college.
