Nowadays student's does not find classroom lectures appealing. They always want to skip or bunk it as they find it boring.Students these days want the classroom to well-equipped and embedded with new technologies. Keeping pace with new technology is the best an institute can do. Also, two-way interaction is the best way for the flow of knowledge. This helps the student engaged and attentive. Discussing ideas and thoughts with student help them to grow and innovate. Regular assignments and tasks are also a good way to build interaction with students.

  • Industrial training: Just a theory lectures will not do a great deal if you are not practically trained in that subject. A practical approach to things helps in the great development of the human brain. Student tries to implement what they studied in classroom lectures in a practical scenario. It is a fact humans learn from his mistake. Once failed in a particular task, cannot stop him to achieve his goal in life. He always tries to find another solution to complete a particular task. That’s why practical training and internship are as important as theoretical lectures.

  • Placement Cells: Everyone wants to be placed in a nice firm or organisation once passed from colleges. This not only set the future path for the student but they are stress-free so that they can focus on their studies more. This is the most crucial time for final year students and they want to give their 100% so that they can be recruited by a good company. Any placement cell must contain a team that looks for the proper arrangement of inviting companies. They should maintain decorum so that students do not face any difficulties during placement. Hence placement cell is key to get more admission.

  • Location: Location also plays an important role in the selection of colleges. An institute located in the middle of cities is the most preferred choice for any student. If all the facilities (like transport, accommodation, food, etc) are just a few distances away from the institute then it automatically becomes the most preferred choice for any student.

  • Atmosphere:Also, maintaining proper hygiene is a must for any college. Since parents are always worried about their children's health who goes abroad for studies, therefore, they always look for a college that follows strict cleanliness and proper sanitation.The general atmosphere of any institute can also be a point to look over. A student should always try to interact as much as he can. This is because people from different backgrounds and cultures come to study here. This helps him to socialise and fraternize. Thus a great environment and aura play an equally important role.

  • Curricular activities: All round development of the student is a must. It not only makes him a great person in life but also moulds him to achieve anything in life. Hence curricular activities are the plus points for attracting students. This includes sports activities, dramas and plays, the various competition that enhances student’s talent (like singing and dancing), workshops and seminars, events and fest, alumni meet, and various other activities.

So it is always an important decision in student life to select the best institute that can give a kick start to their career. Therefore it is always advisable to look for an institute that has got cultural diversity, supportive staff, great infrastructure, planned seminars and conferences and much needed practical training.
