The publication of a, Public Notice of the University Grants Commission (UGC) has raised many questions about the validity of certificates issued by local branches of Indian Universities. According to this notice, no Indian private university has got green lights to open a foreign antenna. The Eastern Institute for Integrated Learning in Management (EIILM) University , concerned with the main note of the UGC, is in a difficult situation.
Some of his students are afraid for the future and seriously considering stopping over. L'express tried repeatedly yesterday to join Sunil Jeetah, director of the institution, as well as the Minister of Higher Education, Rajesh Jeetah for reaction. But in vain. " I'll stop the course because my parents do not want to finance my studies because of doubts about the validity ofcertificates issued by this institution. This is understandable. I 'll get a job until I find another institution tertiary "says Shandini ( name changed ), 22 years old and a student in Advertising .
The sadder, she said, is the loss of time and especially money. " There will no doubt be no refund for all that has been already paid , "she said. Rachel ( first mod e ), 23 and a student at EIILM in Journalism and Mass Communication, has also decided to leave the institution. " I proposed to continue my studies abroad. Or work there. With everything that happened, it was not possible anymore , "she said.
Like other students, the young woman is raised after reviewing the contents of the note of the UGC. Especially since the direction of the EIILM assured that their qualifications recognized internationally. Rachel is unfair that management is not explained on the validity of the certificates it issues. " They have just posted a message on the website of the university to put the blame on the media and politics , "she adds. What makes a hard pill to swallow for Rachel is that she left her job to pursue studies at EIILM. For this young woman, the situation became alarming. " Most of my friends, like myself, are from a modest family. They had to contract loans to pay for studies that will, ultimately, to nothing , "is she protested.
The money lost is what worries Priya ( name changed ), a student of journalism. " I have already paid Rs 90,000 for this school year. This is serious, our future is at stake, " the young woman aspired to get into photojournalism, but this project is compromised, she said. For now, she will "try to get details " from the Tertiary Education Commission . Based on the information obtained, it will decide whether to stop or not to EIILM courses.
