“The admission process this year will have a greater focus on assessing a candidate’s passion and inclination towards various programmes he/she has applied for. While the Common Entrance Test will continue, great stress will be put on marks obtained in school and at the Bachelor’s level, as well as on interaction with a committee of faculty members through an interview on a face-to-face basis or on Skype,” informs Rajiv Seth, registrar, TERI University.

The application fee can be paid online or by a demand draft. Documents including academic certificates are physically verified at the time of registration.
“The TERI University website (www.teriuniversity.ac.in) is interactive and gives detailed information on the admission process, how to apply, career options and how to choose a programme. It also allows for an online chat or an offline message, which can be left and will be responded to in due course,” concludes Seth.
