I learned about Rau’s from my father. He wanted me to come to this institute and see for itself. So, before I joined Rau’s I interacted with faculty here. I saw the approach more personalized, it was more targeted and I saw that the facilities here are convenient. It was flexible, according to my timetable and hence I decided to join Rau’s Study Circle.

After joining Rau’s, I have specially liked the research team of Rau’s, all the faculty has been very cooperative and very helpful taking a personal interest in one’s overall development. The sociology program that I have enrolled for was very in-depth and easy to understand because the teacher made it really interactive during the classroom sessions.

The best part about Rau’s is that the teachers are very accessible. Even the kind of friendships I have developed here, provide me with the academic and competitive environment to prepare better. I took sociology as my optional subject because I felt I need to polish certain theoretical concepts, also have the better understanding of the current issues that have taken place because a part of our sociology program also integrates sociological concepts with current issues and since sir teaching the course in context with current social issues, I felt it would be more dynamic as a result.
