A ten-minute interaction session with a doctor from a specific department will be made available for the user, in which they could also schedule a hospital visit

The receptionist avatar at the university would greet the students in their native language. The platform will have the ability to auto-identify the language of the students.

They can enter the admission office, where they can have a 10-minute interaction with the counsellor.
