    Admissions Process

    1. What are the steps in the admissions process at Atria University?
      Our admissions process is a three-step process starting with the applicant filling the online application form. The second stage involves a one-hour virtual assessment termed as ‘The Beyonder Assessment’ followed by an elaborate panel interview (if shortlisted). All decisions post each stage are communicated by the Office of Admissions within two working weeks.
    2. What exactly is the Beyonder Assessment?
      The Beyonder Assessment is a one hour assessment conducted virtually where applicants respond to questions pertaining to four sections: Quantitative Reasoning, Communication, Problem Solving & Emotional Quotient. The response of applicants helps the Office of Admissions to gauge their problem solving skills, critical thinking, language proficiency, and emotional leadership.
    3. Is there any preparation needed for the Beyonder Assessment?
      Applicants must understand that this is not a Mathematics specific assessment. We do understand that some of you may not have opted for Mathematics in high school. For the Beyonder Assessment, applicants are advised to brush up their basic knowledge of Mathematics and English. We do not provide sample papers, as most part of the assessment is based on spontaneous thinking.
    4. I have missed my allocated slot/ had a power breakdown during the Beyonder Assessment. What should I do?
      Please reach out immediately to the Office of Admissions at ugadmissions@atria.edu and the team will communicate on the next steps.
    5. What to expect during the panel interview?
      Applicants with an impressive performance in the first two stages of the application process are invited for an interview with a panel comprising of Atria University Leadership, Academics and Admissions team. This is the perfect opportunity to talk about your academic endeavours, and motivation to be a part of the Atria University student cohort.
    6. What happens post the panel interview?
      Panel interaction is the final step of the admissions process. Post completion of it, applicants will receive the final decision within two weeks by the Office of Admissions. Successful applicants will be made an offer of admission.
    7. Can I reapply for admission, if I didn’t receive an offer of admission?
      No, you cannot reapply for admission in the same academic year. However, you may reapply in the next academic year.
    8. Can international applicants apply for admission to Atria University?
      Yes, we welcome applicants from all over the world to apply.
    9. Do my 10/12th grade marks matter to get admission to Atria University? Academics are rigorous at Atria University. While the admissions process follows a holistic evaluation of applicants (does not only take marksheets, standardised test scores into account), it is important for them to have an excellent understanding of their core subjects.
    10. Can diploma holders apply to Atria University? Yes, we do accept applications from diploma holders as well. However, applicants who are diploma holders will need to begin their studies from Year 1, and must not have any backlogs from their existing diploma.
