Delhi 12 April: The Federation of Tibetan Cooperatives in India (FTCI) and the Welfare Society of Central Dokham Chushi Gangdruk (WSCDCG) collaboratively organised a free Seminar on the ‘Prospects of Studying Abroad’ at the Tibetan Youth Hostel, Koramangala, Bangalore on 8 March and in Tibetan Youth Hostel in Delhi on 12 April 2015.
This seminar was held with the objective of raising an awareness on the educational prospects of Tibetans into foreign universities in USA, UK, NZ, Canada and Australia apart from providing them with admission assistance.
The main resource persons in charge of this seminar were from Manya Abroad, the Indian partner of “The Princeton Review (TPR)”, the world’s leading test preparation service provider for GMAT, GRE, SAT, IELTS and TOEFL apart from being in the business of recruiting students abroad over the years.
The seminar briefly highlighted the courses in demand and the documents required to secure an admission and scholarship. The importance of preparing oneself at least 2 year before the semester starts, in terms of arranging for documents like, a strong recommendation letter from teachers, and certificate of extra curriculum activities, while in school or college was emphasised upon by the speakers.
Subsequently FTCI and WSCDCG informed all the students gathered that they would organise many such free Seminars in the different Tibetan settlements across India and in the cities like Mangalore, Chennai and Chandigarh.
