    REMARKS

    The management of the University is one of its kind and the professors make it all the more easier for the students.

  • ENTRANCE PREVIEW

    Jadavpur university conducts entrance exams for each department. The exam is followed by a face to face interview after that a final list list is put up in the website. I scored average score, but did well in the interview board. This was the only university in India to have launched a masters course in film studies.

  • FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES

    The college fees are rather cheap and affordable around Rs 2500 or so in a year. Furthermore there are many scholarships and allowences for the brilliant students one needs to follow the website, for a detailed update.

    PLACEMENT WING

    There is no such placement oppertunity in the film Industry. However, one can assist the professors or proceed towards higher education. A lot of Students exchange programs and research oppertunuty is offered at the department itself.

    HOSTEL FACILITIES

    Even though I have never stayed in the hostels, my friends who resided there found it pretty cheap and affordable. The canteens too are cheaper. But one cannot expect very high appliances like air condition or geysers in the decent rates.

  • ALUMNI

    I am still connected to the seniors and juniors, and have been working with them in different projects. I find myself lucky to be a part of the JU family.

  • 10 /10Ratings

    FACULTY

    The faculty is undoubtedly one of the best in India but it is purely for the academicians, and not to be a successful filmmaker. For those who are interested in technical aspects, they should opt for a diploma course from the film institutes after this.

    CAMPUS LIFE

    Everything is dynamic in the campus people are very broad minded and are always open to changes. However the students from the rural areas find it a bit difficult to adjust, because of the free mixing of the opposite sexes. But there is no pressure, everybody encourages productivity and talent in the campus.

    There are two semestars each year but each semestar comprises of three internals and a final examination. The marks of the internal examination is being selected through the best of two method.

Growing up and grown up.

Remarks -

Everything and everyone is good about the college except the mentality of few girls who happen to possess (to be very frank-a very narrow mind) and because of which most of us have to suffer.


Entrance Preview -

It has been my dream since class nine, to delve deep into the subject I love and the subject being English. Being an arts student,i could never score much since according to the very belief and rules, it is very difficult to score a satisfactory percentage when it comes to the arena of Humanities. Nevertheless after I graduated from Asutosh college, Calcutta University with a 49% ,I got the opportunity to participate in the admission process (which was taken in the form of an interview) in the h...

The World of Images Unraveled

Entrance Preview -

I did my Bachelor's in Literature from the same University, but I had to give the entrance test for Film Studies as it is highly competitive exam. I scored close to first class, but more than the score, the aptitude is what matters. Jadavpur University is a natural option as it is one of the top three colleges of this part of the world.


Course Curriculum -

The course curriculum is one of the best designed to suite the future of the student. It is although not about film making, but of course it helps a lot to make films and get into film schools like FTII and SRFTI. This course does not only throw light on film itself, but literature, media, television and contemporary modern philosophy along with films of Ray, Ghatak, Godard, Hollywood, Bollywood, Truffaut, Kurosawa, Fellini and many more as texts.
