    Your Personality Over Your Marks

    Your Personality Over Your Marks

    Similar to our academic structure, our admissions process is unique. We recognize that a mark sheet does not necessarily define your interests and personality. This is why your admission to Atria University is not contingent upon cut-offs, pre-requisites, or standardized test scores.

    Instead, we evaluate your whole profile contextually and look for attributes like passion, rigor, ability to learn, curiosity, teamwork, communication, general awareness, self awareness and perseverance. Our admission process is all about you; your passion, beliefs and ambition. Just be yourself.

    Inviting Beyonders to Apply

    We are not looking for class toppers. We are looking for students who are interested in world affairs, who want to learn, and who enjoy the idea of making a positive impact. Instead of depth of knowledge, we are looking for curiosity and willingness to apply rigor to their pursuits. Instead of academic awards, we are looking to find collaborators.
