We are currently conducting only online classes for all the courses due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Why Should You Attend Our Pre-departure Orientation?

Every year in June, over 2,500 students and parents attend the Dilip Oak’s Pre-departure Orientation program, one of the largest of its kind in India. Most of the Academy’s students who join universities in America and Canada (about a thousand or so annually) are first-time travellers.
The aim of this special orientation, conducted by our Founder-Director, Mr. Dilip Oak, is to provide our students crucial information and help related to travel, the various formalities and matters they have to deal with after they reach their universities. The orientation covers the following points:
What you need to carry
with you
Foreign exchange
regulations
Medical checks, insurance
and immunization
Port of entry
procedures
Campus life and
accommodation
Job opportunities
after MS

You will also be given ‘Get Set to Go’, a handbook by Mr.Dilip Oak that covers all these aspects in detail.

When is the next pre-departure orientation?

Currently no pre-departure orientation scheduled.
Open to all students joining US and Canadian universities for Fall 2021.
Parents are strongly encouraged to attend.
