Modular Program As Per Your Needs

Each program consists of 4 different modules (Prep Class, Foundation, Progression 1 or Progression 2). If you decide the path is not for you or you have got what you needed; you are free to stop at the end of each module. Tuition is paid per module; at the beginning of each module. So you do not need to pay the full tuition of the program (4 modules) at the beginning.
