University Placement Office
University Placement Office has been introduced as a department in MIT Vishwashanti Gurukul to serve as an eye-opener to the various major career opportunities available to the youth of today at different stages of academic life.
The University Placement Officer at MIT Vishwashanti Gurukul advises and assists students and parents through the university application process right from exploration of colleges, shortlisting, campus visits, admission requirements and submission of applications.
All students undertake the IB Diploma Programme as their terminal degree in preparation for tertiary studies. The IB Diploma Programme is an academically challenging and balanced programme of education that prepares students, aged 16 to19, for success at university and life beyond. It has been designed to address the intellectual, social, emotional and physical well-being of students. The programme has gained recognition and respect from the world’s leading universities.
IB - General recognition In India
As the IB grows in India, so too does the recognition of the IBDP as a highly regarded high school programme that prepares students for competitive university entrance in India. It is true that there can sometimes be a conflict of exam dates between the IB Final Exams and the various Indian University Entrance Exams and, should this occur, the IB Coordinator can apply for students to sit any missed IB Final Exam at a later date, as long as certain procedures are followed. It is also true that mostly all Indian universities complete their admissions processes before the IB final results and transcripts are released at the end of the first week in July. For this reason, the IBO works closely with the Association of Indian Universities, to create an early admissions procedure for IBDP students. IBO provides a percentage equivalency document, a transcript of results and a migration certificate for the Indian students.
Students and their parents need to meet with Admissions Directors and Registrars at each of the universities in India for which they are applying, in early April, to secure a Provisional Statement of Eligibility Certificate for each university and, to lodge their early admissions applications in person.

The world of undergraduate courses and universities is a rapidly changing one. Applying to colleges and universities is an exhilarating and illuminating experience which gives students a chance to look at who they are, what they value, and what they might want to do with their life. It can also be a difficult, challenging, and time-consuming process. At MIT Vishwashanti Gurukul, we prepare students to make informed decisions about their university and scholarship opportunities through exposure to school-wide events, group information sessions, individual meetings and library resources. We prepare and send supporting materials to institutions throughout the final year of high school. DP students and their parents are welcome to email us with questions or to set up an appointment for a meeting to discuss individual needs.
Although MIT Vishwashanti Gurukul is not an official SAT / ACT test centre, preparatory training for these tests are offered at the school. Our high school CEEB code is 671120.
To acquaint students and parents with the information about the world-wide options of undergraduate colleges and universities and their admission process, we host University Admissions Representatives from around the world. Numerous on-campus University Fairs and information sessions are facilitated for students to help them choose the best possible colleges.
Our students come from varied backgrounds with unique career preferences and we help them find the best opportunities to live their dreams. Over 98% of VGS students attend colleges after Grade12. Our students study at prestigious universities around the world. A vast majority prefers USA, & UK, but there are students in Australia, Canada, Singapore and India too.
