A gateway to well-researched learning material

Avantika University tied up with Cambridge University Press to upgrade its teaching and learning process

Avantika University entered into an academic and institutional partnership with Cambridge University Press and will facilitate the inflow of world-class, well-researched learning material for its students.

Cambridge University Press India intends to provide educational resources and development programmes that empower students and teachers at Avantika University with a better learning experience. As the first step, a Continuous Professional Development (CPD) programme for the faculty members will be implemented in the coming months to help them develop appropriate teaching methodologies and imbibe international education standards, through international training opportunities and resources.

Speaking about the collaboration, Sanjay Dhande, Chief Mentor, Avantika University, said, “We are delighted to partner with a leading global institution. This will enable learners with an unlimited access to high quality content and learning solutions. It will provide avenues for the new-age students to get diverse global exposure and opportunities.”

Ratnesh Kumar Jha, Managing Director, Cambridge University Press, South Asia, added, “Cambridge University Press has a strong track record of successful collaboration with universities, institutions and ministries in India and across the globe, offering support to diverse initiatives. The collaboration with Avantika University will ensure an enriching academic journey for the students. Our objective will be to equip learners with the most relevant academic content and English language learning solutions both in print and digital formats.”

Avantika University will also join hands with Ahhaa, a virtual reality inner growth platform. With this collaboration, the university will be the first to bring in a specially designed Ahhaa “Life Design” curriculum for students to experience a transformative mind growth journey. This platform will be available for all students at Avantika University.

Through this alliance, learners will be able to master inner growth and self-development by driving their personal and professional growth and happiness to deal with daily life challenges. Ahhaa will also create a novel space inside Avantika’s campus at Ujjain, Madhya Pradesh for students and faculty.
