As a high school student one develops many interests and aspires to build his/her dream career. The missing part is often the path which is not clearly evident to the learner. At such a critical point of time what could be more desired than getting introduced to the oracle of career. A role very much like this is being played by the full fledged ecosystem of Manipal University (MU) with over 20 specialized spheres of knowledge coexisting in a single campus.

MU brings a plethora of opportunities to the learners’ plate to help them build a career path. Students can select one of the many Manipal colleges aligning with their interest in order to start the journey of realizing their ambitions. Divya, a learner at Manipal Animation college reflects “I was interested in animation. But after my 12th, I didn’t know where to join. When I heard about the BSc Animation programme from Manipal University, it was like a prayer answered. Now, here I am in Manipal University, fulfilling my dream and preparing myself to be an animation professional”.
