Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham is committed to gender diversity and helping women students succeed in their educational goals. Currently, 39% of the undergraduate student population is made up of women students (980 women out of 2517 students).

As a key measure of academic achievement and one of our student success goals we systematically track, monitor and evaluate women application admissions and graduation rates including first-time women students.

2. Tracking Method

To track women’s applications, Amrita University uses the following method:

  1. Data Collection: Application forms include a mandatory field for gender, to be able to identify female applicants.
  2. Database Segmentation: Once applications are submitted, data are segregated based on the gender field.
  3. Data Analysis: Data can be analyzed to understand the number of female applicants for higher studies at Amrita University and design adequate strategies to promote gender equality in terms of women’s access to education.
  4. Reporting: Reports detailing the number of female applicants can be created. These reports can provide insights into trends and help assess the effectiveness of outreach efforts aimed at encouraging female applicants.
  5. Continuous Monitoring: Data are compared over multiple application cycles.
  6. Feedback Mechanism: Within the application form, applicants provide information on how they learned about Amrita University. This feedback help assess the effectiveness of outreach strategies.
  7. Outreach strategies can be adjusted (cf. criteria 5.3.3: Women’s access schemes)
