2020 has been a year of innovation and adaptation, COVID-19 pandemic has temporarily put a stop on a lot of things that were normal to us. One of the worst-hit is the students’ admissions has come to a complete standstill at the moment. The future of the young minds is at risk, the closure of institutions and transition to online pedagogy has been swift, albeit delays, transformations and changes based on trial and error. Some COVID warriors did not give up and have been prompt at embracing this need for change and have delivered a virtual platform solution. AFAIRS – Asia’s leading Education Fair & Convention Organizer has announced its first, one-of-a-kind, Virtual Admissions Fair, where students get their best-fit Institutions without the need to step out of the safety of their homes.
Virtual Admissions Fair will bring students and educational institutions under a virtual umbrella to explore the potential opportunities in academics. The fair is aimed at helping thousands of students and hundreds of universities to directly interact with each other and find the customized right fit for both. The concept of VIRTUAL Admissions is new to the world of education in India and is path-breaking in the way education will be imparted as well.
Some Institutions that have registered this need for change and have partnered with AFAIRS are Amity University, O.P Jindal Global University, Rishihood University, Manav Rachna University, UPES, IMS Unison University and many more.
Sanjeev Bolia, Founder and Managing Director, of AFAIRS Exhibitions and Media explain, “Adapt or perish was the only choice, Charles Darwin said this in 1869. 151 years later, a virus has made us realize the importance of this quote. We as an organisation have been in the business of organising on ground Education fairs across the globe for over 25 years now. As we crossed the silver line and assumed we have streamlined all our processes, nature has thrown a curveball and taught us change is inevitable. Without a doubt, we are now entering a new era of digital disruption. So, we reinvented our offerings and adapted to our self-disruption – “Virtual Admissions Fair”. Everything one-on-one, everything real-time. We will be GOING LIVE on 12th June and in a matter of time we will know where this process stands and how we can make it even better.”
Ever since the lockdown, most of the educational systems and process have been delayed, Universities and other educational institutes are unable to make the maximum impact on potential students and the system, in general, is delayed and lagging behind. All of us are aware of the importance of education in any society, the online portal could also mean now education will be more accessible and available to everyone, irrespective of their location.
Virtual Admissions Fair offers the apt solution, students and parents will get an opportunity to interact directly with college authorities and get all their doubts cleared and interact one-on-one with the Admissions Officers through a video call, WhatsApp or a phone call. All they need is a Mobile or a Laptop with the internet and they can experience this absolutely free.
Students can also directly engage in knowledge sharing sessions with VC’s and eminent educators on shifting trends in career choices in the new COVID world. The whole integration is guaranteed to result in faster and smooth admissions, as there is no reliability on third parties or aggregators. AFAIRS, through, Virtual Admissions Fair has harnessed the best technologies to create this virtual exhibition where leading delegates from top education institutions will be available to share valuable knowledge with students of today who are the leaders of tomorrow.
