Sahrdaya College of Advanced Studies has always taken pride in its rich tradition and discipline in the area of learning and education.  Over the years Sahrdaya has implemented various learning and interactive methods for the welfare of the students.

Gurukula also follows the same method as the tutorial way of student – teacher interaction, thereby creating an atmosphere for better learning, which would mould the students as better individuals. Positive and healthy interactions between teachers and students can be extremely beneficial at all levels of an educational establishment, within the classroom and across the college environment as a whole. From improved self-esteem to increased engagement, there are a number of benefits for establishing positive student-teacher interactions.  As it continues to develop, the long-lasting effects benefit not only students and teachers but parents and administrators as well.


Faculty members from each department are appointed as ‘gurus’ with a set of ‘sishyas’ (students), mostly of their own departments till the period of their study in Sahrdaya.  Teachers create an atmosphere for students to share their difficulties in learning and also the challenges that they face in their day today life.  Each guru is responsible for maintaining the details of their interaction with their sishyas confidential. Gurus interact with sishyas, which in turn helps to assist the students in understanding the concept of a balanced life, a value based system, where focus must be given on the uniqueness of the individual.  This will help them excel in their areas of studies and personality. This will also build a character which is far away from fierce competition and increased stress levels that usually lead to depression.

  • Gurukula helps the guru and shishya to have a high quality interaction where the student feels that he or she is listened to.
  • The guru is able to gauge the sishya’s’s progress in studies through the interactions.
  • It gives the students an opportunity to open up their difficulties and the challenges they face both in academics and also as an individual.
  • It helps the students to develop confidence in themselves and their teachers.
  • It creates a low stress environment.
  • It enables the students to have positive expectations, by overlooking their inefficiencies and whatever that pulls them back from greater achievements in life and career.
  • It helps the teacher to understand students who have learning difficulties (as most of the students allotted to them belong to their own department or are the students that they teach).
