Applying to ISABS
The admission process in ODCP is slightly different from other universities. It is designed to be simple and candidate friendly. It starts early in order for you to understand, complete and prepare yourself for the course.
Submit your application
– Upload your latest CV with your picture,
– A statement of purpose not more than 2000 words telling us about “Why you think you are ready for this course”
We assess every candidate individually. Admission decisions are based on our mutual understanding of your ability and potential. We are looking for different things in different people, which means there is no blueprint for a perfect ODCP candidate. We welcome diversity among the candidates to have a healthy mix in the batch
Everyone with a reasonable chance of being offered a seat in the course is called for a conversation to understand the motivation, purpose and readiness to join this rigorous 18 months journey. Based on our mutual understanding, we may have more than one conversation till we reach a satisfactory decision. The intent of these conversations is to help in being an awareness process and also enable informed choice. We consider such a decision to have important implications for your career & Life trajectory.
We would like you to make your own choice. To what extent do you believe this program fits your career & Life goals. And we presume you have done your own homework as to how well you are prepared to invest time, effort, funds and the passion required to practice OD in its true sense. Depending upon requirement, we may mutually agree to have a one-o-one conversation.
Towards the end when we are both ready to make the final decision, you shall be required to sign up your consent of your readiness to adhere to the standards of program requirements and ethical practices of OD, even during the training & learning stages.
In case during the career counselling call we decided to move ahead, you will have a short conversation with the Director, ODCP. This call will be the final call to ensure a smooth process during and after your admission to this journey.
