"This mentorship program will help ease the minds of students"

The #Callamentor initiative aims to help aspiring students find the best university for them, and ease the application process, the company said.

“In the past few months, we have seen a very difficult situation for international students”

Yocket added that more than 15,000 students worldwide have registered for the program with 100+ student mentors.

“Well-versed” mentors will offer firsthand feedback to prospective learners via one to one sessions.

“This mentorship program will help ease the minds of students, overcome the uncertainty and prepare for the best of education that lies ahead of them,” said Yocket co-founder, Sumeet Jain.

The scheme aims to give students the opportunity to gain assistance and clear queries they may have regarding the education system in times of Covid-19, job opportunities, the university, or online classes, Yocket explained.

“In the past few months, we have seen a very difficult situation for international students,” Jain continued.

“We have students from more than 1,000 universities on our platform which makes it a great pool and who better than the international students themselves to give out the ground situation to these aspirants.”

A Yocket survey earlier this year found that 70% of prospective international students from India wanted to continue with their study abroad plans.

Since 2015, the platform has registered more than 350,000 students to offer services including standardised testing, shortlisting and visa application assistance.
