    These are the colleges made for research purposes, and they are not job oriented. There are no official placements in any IISER. Most of the students opt for higher studies in abroad. Moreover, IISER students get a benefit over other students during admissions in abroad colleges due to its reputation in the field of research.

    Problem with our college is its remote location.It is a hassle to go back and forth from home to college. Administration's decisions sometimes don't match with the student's perspective.But we have student representatives to counter that issue.
