It was highly subsidized and really cheap. I think the fees were about Rs.1200 a year. Admission fees were likewise very less. I didn't stay in the college hostel but I remember that being very cheap too. It is highly subsidized by the Department of Education.
The course structure is rather conventional as is often the case with Calcutta University. Though it does set a very strong base for people wishing to study English literature at a higher level. My pass subjects (History & political science) were also taught competitively but traditionally.
As it is a Government College the fees structure is very much reasonable. In fact it is very less. Besides the fees has to be given in two to three installments so that even poor students can avail it. The fees vary year to year. approximately it is rs 2000/- to 3000/- per year.
The college follows the syllabus of the University of Calcutta. Every topic of Calcutta university syllabus were covered in the lectures. Extra facts related to the topics were also taught by the faculty members. The classes held in regular basis and the course was completed sufficient before the main university examination.
Being a government funded college under the University of Calcutta, the fees structure is very favorable during my time, the annual fees are about Rs 1500.
The course curriculum is provided by the University of Calcutta. The faculty is knowledgeable and not only do they teach well, they are always ready to help students in case of any doubts or clarifications.
