Tangkhul Katamnao Saklong (TKS) to make education more accessible is continuing with setting up of help desk to assist aspirants seeking admission in Ukhrul district and constituent colleges of DM University along with Dhanamanjuri University Tangkhul Katamnao Long Imphal (DMUTKLI). They have further taken steps to boots admission in Ukhrul’s Pettigrew College.
Speaking to Yuimi Vashum general secretary, TKS, she said that the help desk is initiated in TKS office so that students don’t have to take the trouble of going to Imphal. This is also taking into account the erratic network problem. The desks is also helping students have a seamless application so that their application does not get rejected on account of incomplete documents or so. Everything gets verified before hand.
She further noted, “especially for DMU and MU, accessing the help desk also enables them to access the Post-admission facilities such as hostels or scholarships etc. as our people often drop out of colleges due to financial constraints. Owing to pandemic times, this will reduce the risk of travelling also,” Yuimi informed.
TKS and DMUTKLI on August 16 mentioned that the ongoing pandemic has posed a great problems and challenges to students specially during admission period. On analyzing the past 3 years record of students’ enrollment in this University, Tangkhul students from Ukhrul and Kamjong districts have reduced significantly. It is an obvious fact that young and fresh students face lot of hardships and problems related to admission processes specially in choosing honours paper and its subject combinations.
To ease all these problems and with an aim to ensure maximum enrollment for this current session, we have come forward to volunteer ourselves to help Tangkhul students who are willing to seek admission to this University by answering all admission process problems. Amongst various others, DMUTKLI will be assisting them post admission in terms of helping them get hostel seats and provide free counselling on academic activities.
