What is Academic Counselling?
“We know what we are, but know not what we may be.”
Ever felt confused while deciding on a field of study or while selecting a degree to pursue that suits your interests, aims, and aspirations perfectly?
IDEA identifies your strengths and weaknesses, through incisive research and other analytical tools developed in-house. We will enable you to choose a field of study based on your interest and your aptitude. With our rich industry expertise in the ‘development sector,’ we will effectively guide you with your studies at various levels: graduation, post-graduation, or doctoral in India or abroad.
IDEA’s aim is to facilitate learning parallel to the changes introduced by the National Education Policy 2020, which intends to create a paradigm shift in the educational approaches to the undergraduate education system in India.
Please note that this is very different from Career Counselling.
Who can benefit from Academic Counselling?
- Transitioning College Students-
These students are undergraduate students who wish to pursue higher studies at the postgraduate level. Alternatively, these are students from post graduate courses who wish to pursue doctoral study.
2. College going students-
These students are those students who are enrolled in any graduate or postgraduate study and cannot decide whether they want to work in the industry or work in the research and development sector.
3. Fresh graduates-
Recently graduated students who cannot decide which career path to choose, or which higher education courses and universities to go for.

IDEA employs a comprehensive approach to evaluate the student and then triangulates the information captured, ultimately providing an informed recommendation. The methodology adopted is:
The final ‘Recommendation Report’ will be a cumulative analysis of various inputs like– past academic achievements, findings of the “Interest Mapper,” an applicant’s vision statement, observations of the Counsellor, interactions with Professional(s) from concerned industry, interaction with our Psychologist, and across the table discussions with the applicant.
