    Entrance Exam

    I got admitted into the college based on my class 12th marks. I did not had to go through any entrance test. But i have heard now they accept scores of entrance tests.


    The fee for my course is around Rs 80k, this is what other college are charging. We also have to pay some miscellaneous fee every year.


    The college has a separate placement cell to groom us during the placement season. The average package offered is around 3-4.5 lakhs. Students get placed in companies like Ernest-Young, Jaro education, Capgenimini and other top companies.

    Hostel and Facilities

    The college provides hostel facilities to students. There is bith girls and boys hostel. The hostels are not locted inside the college campus but nearby. Students can choose eith single rooms or shared rooms. The hostel fee is around 1.1 lac per annum. The fee of the hostel varies as per the choice.


    As the college is new, there is not much of an alumni network. Though the seniors are very friendly.


    The faculties of the college are well qualified. They are very supoortive and go out ofntheir way to make students understand complex concepts. Other than the tect book theory method they also teach through projectos.

    Campus Life

    The gender ratio of the university is same. There are also students studying from different countries which gives a student a lot of exposure about different cultures. There is no discrimination on any bais.


    The college is pretty strict when it comes to attendance and the student has to maintain atleast 75% overall. Student have to score the minimum passing marks in all.


    The college does not provide internship facilities but internship is mandatory for every students. Students have to find the internship on their own. Students also have to submit a report about the internship.

    The overall environment of the college is great and I will recommend this college to students. The placement of the college was a bit low for my batch but now the college provides goof placement. The management of the college is also good.

    Entrance Exam

    Admission into the college is through management entrance tests. I gave mat and scored around 80 percentile and since the college in my hometown itself and in one of best here, I decided to take admission in this. You might also have to go through the PI round for the final admission.


    The fee of the college is very decent around Rs 4 lakhs. Compared to other college this amount is very average as they charge a lot of fee and do not provide quality education too. Students are also provided scholarship is they have scored very well in entrance test.


    The placement of the college is improving year on year is what I have heard. For my batch of 2009 the placements were low only around 50% got placed. But don’t judge it by this as we were only the 2nd batch for MBA program.

    Hostel and Facilities

    The hostel room are spacious but need to be shared by 2-3 other students. The food of the mess is ok. The warden and guards are very strict and do not allow anyone until they are not authorized. There is also a garden to play different sports and gym to exercise.


    The college allows a regular alumni meet where student can interact with the seniors. There also a fb page where alumni keep on posting their experiences and also students can have a chat with them. It is a good way to increase your contacts which will be beneficial in the long run.


    Almost all of the faculties here have served a good time in the corporate field and thus learning is fun as they keep on telling us practical scenarios of theoretical concepts. Almost all of them have a over 5 years of corporate experience and have phds in their relative specialization. They are also very understanding and cooperative.

    Campus Life

    The college always have some or the other event happening. There are twice no of boys in comparison to boys. Some of the events are dance competitions, music events, quiz, debate etc. In the hostel every birthday is celebrated. No ragging is done.


    The structure of the exams are very easy and students do not feel the pressure if they study regularly. There is a dedicated library for mba students where they can get subject books, newsletters etc. There are around 5 exams i.e 3 internal and 2 external.


    No internship is provided we have find it on our own. Also, we have submit a detailed report on the internship and some marks are given based on that too. This all happens in the final year.

    Loans and Scholarships

    I don’t have any knowledge about the scholarship or loan. Though I think so scholarship is provided to top ranking students. I don’t know much, you can go check out at the admission office.

    I liked the college though like every college there are good things and bad things but as the good things about this college are more than the bad things so its ok. Some of the good things are it has all the basic facilities, the faculty is good, extra curricular etc bad things- the management is pretty strict and puts a lo of pressure on students when it comes to acadmeics


    Entrance Exam

    To get into the college i gave the university's own entrance test whihc is called the VELS Entrance exam. IT is conducted for various courses and admission into the imprtant courses is done onky through this. I chose this course and this is what my parents wanted and also over the time i also developed the interest in it.


    The fee structure for the PharmD course is Rs.1,50,000/- per year, which can be paid semester wise. And the fee structure varies from course to course. Also, if you are topper or something so can get some fee waiver too.


    There is not much placement as the coures is still anew one. But also you should not be disheartened by this as there are still a lot of high paying jobs in the market if you go out and have the required skills to do it. 

    Hostel and Facilities

    Yes, the college has a hostel and the best part is that it is in the campus itself so we did not had to spend on transporation. Hostel facilities are average. Food in mess is good. But they can do more. Hostel has good water and electricity facilities. Ventilation is good. 


    Thbe alumni network of the college is strong they have been great mentors to us especially during the placement season. relationships with seniors are present healthy. Job notifications are given by seniors 


    All faculty are well knowledgeable person. Most of them are doctorates. Some are pharma d graduates. They are many industry experiences professors. They are very professional and their standards are good. Even though being a deemed university, they provide well talented and recruit only best professors based on their research experience and publications of papers.

    Campus Life

    The campus life was fun for me. Especially bcoz i am a outgoing person. Students here do participate in extra curricular activities. The labs here are well maintained and equipped. 


    The college follows the semester system and there are 2 semester every year. We have a lot of practical classes which can be tiering at times but overall it will be helpful in the long run. The eams are conducted on time and the results are almost released on time. 


    No. For my course they is no internship provided by the college. But if you arte actually interwested in doing one you should go and contact your faculty and they will be able to hook you up. Though They is no stipend. 

    Loans and Scholarships

    But they provide 25% of that semester tuition fees as scholarship for every semester to person who scores overall 1st Rank in a semester. And state and central government scholarships are also availed by various students time to time.
