The Vedica Writing and Communication Centre
About the writing centre
The Writing and Communication Centre plays a unique part in Vedica's re-imagination of a management programme. Since communication skilling is a prominent facet of preparing for today's workplace, all Vedica Scholars are trained to excel in it. The Writing and Communication Centre helps each Scholar gain enough communicative competence to confidently navigate the professional space. The Centre's methods are derived from the newest principles of language-teaching and the interdisciplinary humanities. The facilities of the Centre are open to current Scholars as well as alumnae.
The Writing and Communication Centre equips Scholars with a checklist of basics directly required by recruiters today. Courses and workshops cover topics on organisational communication, journalistic communication, personal communication as well as the 'creative' and 'literary'. The Centre does not offer to do the work for Scholars, but partners with them to build on their spoken and written aptitude.
How the writing centre works
The Writing and Communication Centre functions along the academic track Thinking and Communicating for Impact, and works in two ways:
The Writing & Communication Lab
The curriculum and modules at the Writing & Communication Centre have helped me clarify my own approach to communication. Now I see the importance of good communication skills in all forms at the workplace. The closely-tailored coaching at the Writing & Communication Lab has enhanced my writing quality, as well as my verbal ability. Both these skills have been recognised and acknowledged as distinguishing features of my professional ability. #proudVedicaScholar

Each of the VWCC sessions has helped me with effective articulation, synthesis and contextualisation. Right from the one-on-one meetings which involve extensive feedback, to courses like Communicating with Audiences, the Centre has taught me how I can create sustained impact with my words. I have markedly improved my public speaking and media communication skills, which have aided my leadership qualities.
