A key ingredient that parents seek from academic institutes is international exposure and global pathways and to provide their children with a well-rounded education.
JBCN Education runs 4 International schools in Mumbai, and has been actively working toward creating a global curriculum for its students. To that effect, students of the graduating IBDP and A levels batch of 2021-22 at JBCN International School have received a record number of scholarships worth USD 2.5 MN from prestigious universities in North America and the United Kingdom. The scholarships fund the students’ tuition fees and living expenses for the duration of the course.
The students received scholarships from universities such as the University of California (Berkeley), the University of California, (Los Angeles), Boston University, UMASS (Amherst), Oxford University, Cambridge University, Imperial College London, University College London, and The University of Toronto to name a few. Vittada Badgeri of JBCN International School (Parel) has received an offer to study Psychological and Behavioural Sciences (PBS) at the University of Cambridge which ranks 3rd in the world according to the 2022 Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) World University Rankings. Aditi Ahuja Sapru of JBCN International School (Oshiwara) has received an offer to study Economics and Business Studies at the University of California- Los Angeles (UCLA), which ranks 11th according to the 2022 College Factual rankings. Another learner, Rishikesh Kanabar of JBCN International School, Borivali, Mumbai, has received an offer to study B.Eng. Computing from Imperial College London, which was ranked 7th in the QS world rankings this year.
Kunal Dalal, Managing Director at JBCN Education, said, “Delivering stellar results is a matter of immense pride for us. At JBCN, we always aim for excellence, be it in Academics, Sports, or Performing Arts. We strive to provide quality education to learners from diverse backgrounds to develop global citizens, future leaders, and problem solvers. I want to congratulate all the recipients and their facilitators on their hard work. This inflow of scholarships and placements is a testament to JBCN’s educational philosophy and expert faculty.”
The school takes a proactive approach toward career and university counselling. Experts with years of experience in this field are engaged by JBCN to guide learners through each step of the university application process – right from career guidance to college applications. Career counsellors work closely with the learners, to encourage them to start planning their future. The learners’ strengths, areas of development, and interests are assessed through psychometric tests, workshops, and continuous interactions with these counsellors. The institute’s efforts in this area have led JBCN to be recognised as the number one in Career Counselling Services in India by Education World in an independent survey conducted last year
JBCN Education’s unique EduCreative learning experiences enable each child to excel and showcase their potential. As part of this endeavour, the institute has included learning initiatives such as international guest lectures, learner exchange programs, virtual global dialogues, webinars, workshops, competitions, etc., in its curriculum to promote internationalism as well.
