Changanassery: Classes will take place from 9 am to 2 pm at Assumption College, a leading educational institution for women at Changanassery in Kottayam district of Kerala, starting the coming academic year. The new timings are being introduced for degree and PG courses in order to enable students to work and pursue job-oriented courses along with their regular studies, said college authorities.

“Currently, classes are held from 9.30 am to 3.30 pm. When the regular classes end by 2 pm from next year, students can engage in some fruitful occupation during the rest of the day. Those who are not interested in working now can join any of the employment training programmes to be conducted at the college after 2 pm,” said a college official.

Incidentally, Assumption College is celebrating its 75th anniversary next year and the new system will be introduced as part of the celebrations.

The job-oriented courses which the college would be offering include Patient-care management and Medical coding. Students will also have opportunities to join coaching classes for various competitive exams and learn various foreign languages.

“The arrangements are intended to ensure facilities which are available in foreign universities to students of Assumption College also,” said Vice-Principal of the college, Dr Rani Mariya Thomas.

The changes are being implemented after conducting a survey among the students of the college and their parents, she added.
