CU Student Journey from the Campus of Chandigarh University to the International Podium of South Korea

~ Geet, Student, Chandigarh University

A few months ago, I was granted with a 100% scholarship by the education ministry of South Korea to participate in a one-year exchange program at Pai Chai University. This opportunity came my way all through the great support of my home University - Chandigarh University.

One of the biggest challenges I face here is the Korean language, but I am equally passionate to learn. The initial stages of learning a language can be very monotonous. I found myself becoming lazy and procrastinating every now and then.

In the month of May, my teacher announced to the class about an upcoming Korean Speech Contest at Pai Chai University. She said one student would be nominated from each language school class. It was an instinct to just raise my hand and volunteer as I raised my hand I looked around at my friends and noticed that I was the only one with my hand up. After the teacher wrote down my name, my friends started praising my “bravery”.
Frankly, at that point of time, I had no clue what I had just gotten myself into. Two months of studying a language and here, I was up and ready to deliver a speech in front of the whole school and be judged for it!
But, What is life with no challenges? So, I began jotting down my thoughts and wrote a speech in Korean in about a week. My teacher made the necessary corrections and BAM! It was ready. It was after this that I had to fasten my belt even tighter. They say memorization is the absolute worst way to deliver a speech. It didn't seem like I had any other option at that point but I really wanted my speech to sound as natural as possible. So, I began using the vocabulary from my speech in day-to-day situations.

I became a complete psychopath by the last week, as the anxiety began to grip me. I practiced countless times but was still so sceptical about how my performance would go. I have been a stage person for years but, I never ever had this many thoughts or predictions of making a fool of myself on stage.


I woke up at 5:30 the day of the contest knowing that I was going to represent my country in front of hundreds of people. For the first time in my life, I draped my own sari, which by the way was almost as challenging as giving the speech. It took me nearly an hour and a half! 



But, I can't compare the feeling of grace and elegance you get in a sari. Confidence is so effortless in it.


My Russian friend accompanied me to the venue. I went back stage, gave myself a pep talk, popped in my headphones and listened to some bomb music on ear damaging volume.

Before I knew it, it was SHOWTIME…



I felt so relieved and content at the end of my performance because it was finally done and over with. The anxiety was finally gone. I sat calmly and watched all the wonderful performances by the other candidates from different countries. What a show it was! After about an hour and a half, they announced the results.

I know it seems so overrated to say that the results didn’t matter. But, THEY REALLY DIDN’T. My purpose of taking part was to challenge myself to the extreme and I was satisfied.

My name was announced and I didn’t comprehend for a few seconds because my name becomes a completely different sound with Korean pronunciation. The hard work was paying off! I stood 1st place amongst level 1 Korean Learners and 2nd place competing with advanced Korean learners.

Such a priceless feeling to make your teachers, family, and friends this proud!



 Later that week I was in a Korean Newspaper! How cool?



The chance to represent my country, share my experience, deliver a speech in another language, majorly leap out of my comfort zone, win, get a money prize, get published in a South Korean newspaper and make my loved ones proud.


I couldn't have asked for more of an outstanding experience.

RESEARCH AT CU – To Respond and Lead

This is indeed a research age. In an era where innovation drives competition, development and national prosperity, and where social, economic, cultural, environmental and political challenges are increasingly diffused across geographical borders, it has never been more critical for research to respond—and lead—in a global vein. We only need to look around us and the technologies we use and rely on in our day-to-day lives to appreciate the momentous value and contribution of research.

A defining characteristic of Chandigarh University is RESEARCH.
Chandigarh University is deeply committed to emphasize the importance and value of research—at the institutional level and further afield, both domestically and internationally.

Every day students and faculty at CU perform research and innovation and with our consistent efforts we have set up an advanced research culture and system. In many cases, these truly transformative innovations and successes are not achieved in isolation but are the outcomes of collaborative research efforts both domestically and internationally. Further to give our research objectives a proper shape we at CU have established University Centre for Research and Development (UCRD).

With the collaborative efforts of our faculty, students and experts  we have achieved more than 25 patent fields, set up more than 50 departmental research groups, more than 1200 research papers published in National and International journals and more. With the combined efforts of research faculty and students we have achieved various feathers of success to our research cap like – curing Asthmatic allergies, ergonomically designed bicycle, correction of bone deformities. Currently our young researchers at CU are focussing on the core areas of macro-nano technology, computational biology, biomedical engineering, clean energy and environment and so on. Different departments at CU have organised separate research groups to carry on an organised research at CU.
To secure the efforts and to encourage the spirit of innovation of our trained faculty and enthusiastic students, we at CU have set up Intellectual Property Right Cell (IPRC) that covers industrial Property – patents, designs, trademarks and projects and ventures initiated by our staff and students.
Collaborations of a global nature create positive impacts not just at the institutional level, but more importantly, throughout the broader community. Focussing on this approach, International research collaborations are greatly fostered and nurtured at CU. Our collaborations with more than 100 international universities helps us collaboratively to bring diversity in perspective and approach to solve the challenges of our time and generate new ideas for the future. A culture of collaborative and innovative research among Australian universities and their international peers fosters a reciprocal culture of positive transformation.
We invite you to join with us in continuing to enrich this culture of innovation through collaboration in research. The more we engage globally, the more we all prosper. This must, after all, be the primary objective of research at CU.

Confused Between a Job or an MBA


Well! It’s OK to be confused after graduation as picking-up between accepting a job or pursuing an MBA is really a tricky one. Both options take you to the absolutely diverse career paths, one leading to the office and another to college/university.

Certainly, this is one among the most worrying and stressing situations for students as decision taken today will pay-off later either in productive or futile manner. So, you need to choose wisely. Here are some of the facts which, if considered with balance will help you get this formula right by effectively choosing between a Job or an MBA-



1.     Industry Demand
First of all, look into the market to find out the career scope for MBAs. Rational market analysis enhances the chances of student’s employability and expertise in the chosen domain. Indeed, if the demand seems to be escalating in the future, then undoubtedly choose for an MBA, as specialized knowledge in the increasingly competitive marketplace will let you stand out of the crowd.

2.     Check-out  your finances
Second in the queue, but the most important thing is the arrangement of funds. In parallel with identifying the market scope, also identify your sources of funds. If you can bear it on your own, it would be pretty good, otherwise checkout for the substantial loan. If your finances are wrecked already that the MBA would burden it, then never risk and take the job first.

3.     Think about experience
The two arguments that clashes the other time include “don’t break your flow of studies” and “experience the real-time market first to precisely find out the demand of the market.” But fix it in mind that nothing in the world can make you expert like playing in the mud first.

4.     Think about benefits of pursuing MBA
Undoubtedly higher studies can let you gain significantly high industry demanded temperament. Also the potential opportunities heighten if you have a degree in your hand.


5.     Ask yourself “Why”
Eventually the final decision is yours. Considering all the aforementioned points, ask yourself the actual reason for choosing the job over MBA or vice-versa. All you need to do is – think rationally that could help you in future.
