    Reasons for choosing Bethune College

    Remarks -
    8.6 /10

    Faculties are great and they complete the syllabus positively. Specifically, the libraries(Science & Arts) of Bethune College are outstanding. No need for private tuition. There are no bad aspects except for the attendance problem. All have to attend every class every day. People from distance should take a pg/hostel to continue. The first reason for choosing this college is their "faculties" and secondly the recognition. It's one of the top colleges in Calcutta. Thirdly, there is no political ambiance. And lastly, the beautiful campus of Bethune College attracted me a lot. The admission process is conducted very smoothly completely based on merit. Check their websites regularly to get a n...

    Bethune college is the first women's college in Asia. As it's a renowned college and one of the oldest college in kolkata, infrastructure is no doubt very good. Equipments in laboratories and books in libraries are enough as needed on the basis of syllabus. Science and arts libraries are separate, wifi is available. Sports centre opens only for few days before annual sports. Rest of the year it remains closed. The food available in the canteen are of reasonable price and hygienic.

    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.
