STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

Where The Past Meets The Present and Yields To A Beautiful Future

Remarks -

The University has a wonderful vibe and energy which is well-suited for students to study and interact with. However, student politics is also very strong with 3 leading parties struggling for power. The students will be put under no pressure to participate in such activities against their will. The authority is well-functioning but there is a lot of scope for improvement. All in all, the university provides a great space for students from all cultures and economic backgrounds to come together and study in.

Remarks -

No, they were efficient and helpful. They did their bit in time and I didn't face any issue for them. Sometimes I felt the numbers of clerks should be increased to cater to the huge student base.
