Pre Departure Counseling

SRM Institutes student information center in Bangladesh organize several pre-departure counseling session for outgoing students who have confirmed their admission at SRM Institutes from Bangladesh.

During the pre-departure session a delegation from SRM Institutes usually brief the student and guardian about the environment, safety, airport pick up, what documents and things student should hold with them during and after journey. academic rules, dormitory rules, how to start journey, where to stay initially, where to get help. how to book air /train ticket, academic rules and regulations, penalty and more what student and guardians should know.

After the session we also arrange one to one question and answer session. Assuring students safety and proper education is one of our responsibility.
