1. Mere candidature in the selection process does not guarantee
Candidates have varied prior preparation in as much as partnering
universities have academic regulations distinctly of their own.
Hence the prescribed programme for each selected candidate will
vary in details and that is the prerogative of the university to
which the candidate is admitted. It is, therefore, not negotiable.
No candidate will correspond with any of the partnering universities
until such time that the candidate is issued the letter of admission
by the university.
The Alliance guarantees no fees waiver, no bursary, no scholarship
by the mere fact that the candidate has been admitted to such universities.
No candidate will also unduly correspond with The NIIT Academy except
when warranted under the instructions of the Academy.
the strength of letter of admission, issued by the partnering university,
selected candidates will proceed to complete the formalities of
visa, etc. at their initiative. They will keep NA informed of their
progress in this matter.
