“Study abroad is the single most effective way of changing the way we view the world” – Chantal Mitchell
‘Learning requires humility & humility is the key to success’, said Dr. Sudhansu Sarangi, IPS, Commissioner of Police, Bhubaneswar-Cuttack during the SAI Career Talk held on Thursday, November 26, 2020. He provided valuable advice on how to effectively prepare for higher education in foreign universities. Talking to the students he said ‘what choice you make today will stay with you for the next 30 to 40 years’ and so one needs to make a judicious decision on time.
He gave an overview of the advantages of pursuing undergraduate courses in renowned universities in places like UK and USA, as many of them come within 1000 ranks in the World University Rankings. He spoke about how students are prepared methodically to make them job ready while doing their undergraduate course.
Delineating the life in a foreign university, he said that apart from concentrating on academics, one should also focus on personality development, leadership ability, communication skills, creativity and develop team spirit. He urged the students to develop a love for reading and become voracious readers, accumulating as much knowledge as possible. He urged them to become self-reliant, learning to do their own work, so as to make their life easier in abroad universities.
Dr. Sarangi congratulated SAI International School for becoming the No.1 School of India. He asked the students not to think themselves just as students of the school but as real ambassadors of the school who carry its core values as they go abroad to study. Dr. Sarangi answered to numerous queries posed by the students of SAI International.
Dr. Bijaya Kumar Sahoo, Founder and Mentor, SAI International thanked Dr. Sarangi for dealing upon the practical aspects of studying in foreign universities, which is very significant in students’ life.
