    1. Bethune college is primarily a government college, so the overall cost of the undergraduate program is much cheaper. 2. Also, the English department is considered as the heritage department of this college. Definitely the reputation is one of the reason as well.

    Bethune is one of the prestigious colleges that has till date maintained its standards. One of the major reasons to take admission is that Bethune keeps itself completely isolated from the political turmoil which quite a normal thing for any college under university of Calcutta. It has some really experienced professors who are very approachable as well as helpful.

    This is the first women's college in Asia that influenced me most and also it is very disciplined, strict, non-political institute where study is the main thing. As I completed my higher secondary level from Bethune Collegiate School, so this college attracted me most. The environment of this college is so beautiful and peaceful that help students to prosper. The results are very good and also placement offers from department help students to make their future bright.

    Bethune is one of the best colleges in West Bengal. The teaching is immaculate. It really gives you a sense of freedom and power, while helping you grow in your own way. I have to put in a word for my department. I do not believe that the professors in the English department could be replaced by anyone else.
