As we know for studying abroad and adapting to its conditions, language poses a vital role as means of communication. Knowing a foreign language is competent enough for sustaining abroad & for upgrading the resume. Considering this two months course on "Introduction to German language" was conducted by Prof. S.S. Metan to the SAC members. Total 10 students successfully completed the course.

There are various kinds of alumnus procedures for selecting a student for pursuing MS by the foreign universities, for which the resume must be sound, impressive and cover all the areas regarding the subject opted by the student for masters. International journal paper publication & international conference paper presentation play a vital role to raise the level of the resume as well as the scholar, accelerating his chances for masters. Keeping this in mind a session on "How to write Research paper" was conducted by Prof. S.S. Metan. Till date eight students have applied their paper in an international journal.

A session on “How to minimise the MS expenses before leaving abroad” was conducted on 26th January 2016 by Prof.Shriniwas S Metan. The concept of earn and learn scheme, getting TA and RA, qualifying GATE, doing different co-curricular courses etc. were discussed in the session. Total 20 students were present for the session.

In the present academic year, total eight students have qualified this year for GRE, TOEFL and IELTS examinations.

We are extending our vision, goal as well as efforts to make this cell more effective to perform successfully than the previous year. Miss Aishwarya Karwa, Mr. Akshay Hiremath, Mr.Gundu & Mr. Shubham Goski worked as a student co-ordinators for SAC for this year. They had taken countless efforts in organising and successfully conducting the SAC sessions. Mr. Samadhan Patil, Mr. Ram Bhosale and Mr. Hariba Pangale also worked hard for making the sessions happen for the students. Miss Snehal Kalam Patil has worked as a faculty coordinator to motivate and educate the students about GRE, TOEFL and IELTS examinations.

The success of the SAC is due to the support of our Hon. Principal Dr. J. B. Dafedar, all the role holders and faculty members, who directly and sometimes indirectly helped in conducting the sessions. Thanks to management also for giving us an opportunity to start the unique cell Study Abroad Cell (SAC) and give our contributions for the career advancement of the students.
