Student Reviews

    Remarks

    Experience At the college was good. That faculty and management was good and made me have fun and learn as well. Every lecture was efficient and the syllabus was also updated with the new trends in the market. Also the faculty was very friendly nature and that made studies more interesting.


    Entrance Exam

    For admission into my program the candidate needs at least 40% in his class 12th as well as he needs to appear and clear the university entrance test. There might or might not be an interview as I did not give any interview but my friends was supposed to give some interview. The interview is easy as per them.


    Fees

    The fee of University is very manageable it can be easily awarded by middle class family. As the university is renowned you wont mind paying this small fee for so much of knowledge.


    Placements

    Placement is provided by the University some of my seniors got placed in some of the companies with an average placement of around 2 to 3 lakh per annum. I did not sit for the placement as I wanted to study more.


    Hostel and Facilities

    I did not take any hostel as I stayed near the college in a PG. I have paid around 4k as the rent excuding electricity and food. The rent depnds on the locality. There are some good food outlets which give food cheap. As per my friends the hostel facilities was good.


    Alumni

    There is no ragging and the campus and the seniors and the management is very friendly. I don't think there is any alumini meet sort of thing.


    Faculty

    The college is very good at teaching as well as most of them have over 10 years of teaching experience. There always available to clear the doubts of the student and make the teaching very easy for students to understand.


    Campus Life

    The events on the campus are limited but still we get some events. Such as technical, cultural fest are done.


    Academics

    The exam structure is pretty easy as the doubts are always cleared on time and enough gap between the exam is given by the management. The results are mostly out on time and I did not feel any kind of bias in cheking too. Though I felt topper were told about the questions in advance but I am not sure.


    Internships

    No internship was offered during my time and students who are interested can do so in their summer breaks. Internships are very important during the placement season as the students who have interned are preferred over those who have not by top companies.


    Loans and Scholarships

    I did not get any type of scholarship though I have heard that the scholarship is offered to students for not that financially sound and also top ranking students.

    Remarks

    It is not that popular but it is a good university and open university which means students can get degree without attending the classes. The fee is so very low as compared to regular course. Though the management is not that up to date it and lacks a lot when compared to regular mode of study..


    Entrance Exam

    No kind of entrance if you want to get into any of the UG courses but for some pg course you might have to give some entrace.


    Fees

    i had paid around 40000 per year. This is not include any miscellaneous fees just the tuition fee.


    Placements

    No job placement provided by the college will have to get a job on your own. They just give you the degree and based on that you have to get your job.


    Hostel and Facilities

    No hostel facilities to the students.


    Alumni

    No proper platform for the conduction of alumni interaction


    Faculty

    The faculty in my college are very supportive and highly experienced staff members. There are many non technical staff in my college.The standard of teaching was moderate.


    Campus Life

    Being an open university there's not much campus life


    Academics

    The course curriculum is pre-planned but i though it was not much updated and the syllabus has been keeping on going for a really long time.


    Internships

    No internships as it is open university


    Loans and Scholarships

    No scholarship or loan facility just you have to pay the fee year wise.
