Since SNU gives Scholarships, the free structure is quite feasible (especially considering the value of our faculty). The tuition fee depends on the scholarship. The hostel fees is 50k yearly. Apart from that, there is mess charges and laundry which are nominal.
Almost 90 per cent of the students studying here have scholarship. This private university has state of art facilities and is philanthropic initiative. They are not here for profit. Most of the students pay less than what any other college would charge.
The course curriculum is most interesting. And the policy of continuous evaluation is practised by means of quizzes, assignments and surprise tests apart from main exams. The credits are divided into VELS, REAL and IC. We are allowed to pursue minors as done abroad also. For example I m doing Computer Science Engineering while also studying Economics courses as my side subjects.
