Our Selection Process: What is Holistic Review?

Ahmedabad University offers a rigorous academic curriculum and an intellectually stimulating environment. The Office of Admissions and Financial Aid enrolls students who are academically and attitudinally prepared to thrive in the challenging curriculum, who embody our motto of growing through a spirit of enquiry and are enthusiastic about learning with an open mind.

In evaluating each applicant holistically, we do not consider one single criterion (such as exam-scores in class XII), but a multiplicity of criteria together with their personal background, opportunities available in one’s environment and personal qualities. In addition to academic excellence, we are positively disposed to enroll students who have excelled in co-curricular and extra-curricular activities such as action-learning research projects, internships, volunteering in communities, sports, performing arts, cultural and social service participation, and have demonstrably pursued their passion.

As a part of our admissions process, aspirants are required to write a Statement of Purpose, which is a well thought out document written solely by the student based upon their independent reflections about their past, present and future life. This Statement of Purpose is an opportunity for the university to get to know the students deeply, over and beyond their academic achievements. The Statement of Purpose provides a context to get a deeper insight into the candidate’s aspirations, their authentic reflections about their personal preferences.

We strongly recommend that students give themselves 2-3 weeks to complete the application after adequate reflection and thought in filling the application. This Statement of Purpose is the avenue for aspiring students to inform us about their unique and specialized traits, that would make them great candidates to join a highly talented cohort of Ahmedabad University’s undergraduate programmes. As the admissions process entails a rigorous personal interview, candidates are encouraged to write their Statement of Purpose sincerely, truthfully and honestly.
