Edtech platform Unacademy will soon be venturing into the offline learning space by setting up learning centres for physical classes pan India. The learning centres will provide coaching for National Eligibility Entrance Test Undergraduate (NEET-UG), Indian Institute of Technology Joint Entrance Exam (IIT JEE) and foundation (Class IX-XII) course categories. The first learning centre will be operational in Kota sometime next month. After the launch of the first offline learning touchpoint, other similar centres will be operational in Jaipur, Bengaluru, Chandigarh, Ahmedabad, Patna, Pune and Delhi.
The new venture entails to bring top educators, pedagogy and study material curated by India’s best educators, in-person mentorship and doubt solving, regular parent-educator sessions and a flagship offline learning experience with high-tech infrastructure to enrolled learners. Along with offline classes, the learners will get access to on-ground counsellors, a state-of-the-art library and brand merchandise at the centre. Besides, Unacademy has decided to conduct a national scholarship-admission test for batch enrolments owing to a high demand for offline classes from learners. High ranking learners will be eligible for scholarships for the offline courses. Around 15,000 learners across all the learning centres will be enrolled on the first offline batch.
Gaurav Munjal, co-founder and CEO, Unacademy Group, said, “Our experiential touchpoints have seen tremendous response from learners, many of whom have also expressed the need for in-person learning from the best educators. With Unacademy Centres we will bring the best of Unacademy — India’s top Educators, best-in-class technology and product, and state-of-the-art infrastructure for our Learners.”
