Once Registration is complete on July 15 and 16, 2013, classes for the M.A. Education and M.A. Development programme will commence from July 17, 2013. The programmes at Azim Premji University require a high degree of reading, comprehension, quantitative and writing skills and hence classes will be supported with a three week Orientation programme that will run in parallel to regular classes, taking students through the study skills required to learn effectively.
To enable the student to make the most of orientation, this has been planned in conjunction with regular classes. This ensures that the student is able to appreciate the requirements of learning within the class room and at the same time is able to spend time in the orientation session learning the basics required to be an effective learner. Integrating orientation support with course learning in the class room enables the student to review personal requirements for support in an integrated fashion. The introductory orientation course will enable students to align themselves to meet the pre requisites of the programme applied for. The orientation programme is envisaged as a support programme, compulsory for all students and this will seek to address the areas of improvements identified during the selection process.
