The world has changed considerably and to adjust to this change there must certainly be reforms in the way we live, think and learn. Considering the same the government of India planned to do away with the old education system and came up to introduce 21st Century’s first education policy in India- National Education Policy 2020. However, to leave the old behind and get used to the new doesn’t feel so comfortable and therefore the implementation of any new policy needs much time. Nonetheless, the tiny Himalayan state of India, a brother to the seven northeast sisters, Sikkim got its first skill university implementing the new National Education Policy from this very academic session.
A young university though, dynamic and visionary in its approach towards education, Medhavi Skills University is all set to reshape the destiny of about four hundred students. With the implementation of NEP 2020 the students of foundation batch will get to taste a new variety of education which doesn’t just lead them to degrees, but equip them with the values helping them become a better individual while enhancing their skills to meet up the demand of the industry.
MSU, the best university in Sikkim offers affordable, quality education providing 50% scholarship to all the deserving students of the foundation batch. The university focuses on equity and has been passionately working towards delivering personalized education to its students. As per the principles of NEP 2020, it offers flexibility in choosing their subjects. There isn’t any hard separations as such between subjects, curricular and extra-curricular activities here and the students can be credited for their practical practice and learning as well. The students during their first semester can explore various subjects and only after discovering their interest in a particular sector, they may choose their major subjects. The focus also lies on conceptual understanding and critical thinking where teachers act as the heart of the learning process-approachable, friendly and helpful.
In line with the NEP 2020, Medhavi Skills University also offers a range of Skill Drill (vocational) courses to choose from for its students. To name a few, Creative Writing, Preventive Medicine, First Aid, Hospital Duty and Patient Care, Restaurant Operations, Catering Operations, and Customer Service in Hospitality are some ‘Skill Drill’ courses wherein the students as per their interest can explore and learn.
The vison of NEP is the responsibility of MSU. Being the first in the region to implement the policy, Medhavi Skills University is ready to lead and contribute in making “India a global knowledge superpower”. MSU through young and growing shall leave no stones unturned in making education more fun and enjoyable to its students while helping them with their mental, emotional, personal and professional growth.
