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.

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.
