The Shooting Star program in an exhaustive, scientifically designed program which caters to every facet of college admission procedure. Ideal for students from Grade 9 to 11, it forms a comprehensive course of action which works towards creating an impressive,well rounded college application.
Personal Project Discussion & Initiation
To diversify your profile through experiential learning, personal projects are a great option. One of the great benefits of such projects is that students gain greater insight into their particular interest. Envisioning a project, executing the idea, leadership role, teamwork etc are the skills which can be showcased through the projects.
Annual Internship Alignment
Connecting students to the right opportunities and aligning them for good internships is a great way to stand out in the crowd of admission seekers. Contacting entrepreneurs, stockbrokers, financial advisers or even payroll specialists, professors at local universities give students an insight into their chosen profession and loads of hands-on experience.
Country and Course Shortlisting - a long list
After analysing and evaluating the choice of course and mapping it to the right University selections, a suggestive list is prepared while keeping the ‘filters’ around budget, location and other parameters in mind. This exhaustive list is fine-tuned further to narrow down the best choices.
Preparing an overall Application Strategy
A good college application means having a proper strategy. Collating things like relevant summer work, volunteering, internships, curating documents, preparing for tests, researching colleges/majors, making a list of all separate applications in the colleges’ portals, attending virtual tours &info sessions, are all a part of the application journey.
Students - Speak
After class 12 we were very confused because of the conflicting interests of our child. The mentors at University Connection followed a meticulous plan for our child right from an aptitude analysis to choosing correct courses and college. We wish them all the best.
I am very grateful to Charushila Mam for her wonderful support in realising my dreams and ambitions. My internship and summer school helped get a realistic idea of what my career entails. I am happy that I chose UC to be my guide in this endeavour.
It was pretty eyeopening right from the beginning how UC mentors approached career counselling. They do not believe in one size fits all and created a customised career plan for my son. I am very grateful for their immense support and guidance.
Thank you mentors and Charushila mam for providing me with so many options. Most of them I didn't know even existed. I am happy that I chose to get appropriate guidance and have a proper plan which enabled me a scholarship at my preferred college.
Thank you again!
I shall forever be indebted to my mentors and teachers who made it all look so easy. I enjoyed my entire process as the basis of this plan was my field of interest. The coveted internships helped me to make the right decision and gave me an edge during the application process. I would recommend University Connection to all the students who wish to study abroad.
