UPSC Seminar Series for IAS and IPS aspirants
Date : 10-05-2018

RICE IAS Academy in collaboration with Adamas University organises special UPSC Seminar Series for IAS and IPS aspirants

RICE IAS Academy in collaboration with School of Professional Studies, Adamas University organised a special seminar for aspiring students who want to serve the nation by becoming IAS or IPS officers. RICE IAS Academy in Delhi sent four of their expert faculty members to Adamas University campus in Barasat. An interactive seminar followed, and students learnt what it takes to prepare for the Civil Services examination conducted by UPSC (Union Public Service Commission). The videos showcased a diverse group of dreamers who had overcome obstacles to reach their goals – people as varied as working mothers, qualified doctors, former waiters, 6th time takers, and so many more. A short demo class was also in order when our students interacted with the four mentors discussing subjective questions from previous exams and best ways to tackle them. Through the two-hour activity the underlying message was clear. The Civil Services examination is difficult but there is a route to success. Studying intelligently and doing the right thing will get you where you want to be.
The School of Professional Studies (SOPS) in Adamas University had two objectives when planning this seminar – 
1. Give students a glimpse into the world of the hallowed Civil Services
2. Follow up with an opportunity for students to train for Civil Services examinations

A robust training plan for aspirants looking to take on the Civil Services examination is in the making. This year SOPS aims to start an intensive residential training programme exclusively geared towards UPSC Civil Services examinations.

It was a great honour and gift for us to visit Adamas University. We are deeply grateful for, and touched by your hospitality and friendship. More than a connection between our respective universities, I feel that we have made very dear friends. Kolkata is now a place that is very dear to my heart. I believe that this is the beginning of a lifelong friendship and our lives have been blessed by this experience and friendship.

Prof. Gavin Cologne-Brookes commented:
We both are deeply moved by the hospitality and immediate friendship; by the participation of your students, whether in the audience or on stage, and by our new understanding of Indian culture. My life has long been full of extraordinary moments of human connection and a sense that certain things are meant to be and we all know that this has been a very special time.
