Every year college hold Alumni meet which is communicated to all the alumni well in advance via individual mailers with reminders. Alumni of the college are spread across the world as many of them are pursuing higher education in other countries. Its again a very good event with good amount of entertainment and discussion all round.
As far as I know there was no scholarship of loan facility extended by college. However loans was offered by banks on the reputation of college.
Just one suggestion to management that they have to be little sensitive towards outstation students and have to eradicate language barrier. Rest all is best in terms of labs, faculty and infrastructure.
Gender ratio was 60 male : 40 female. But admission was thoroughly based on individual merit of the students in the all India entrance. 60 was intake of students each year out of which 50% seats were reserved for inside Maharashtra domicile students and 50% kept for outside Maharashtra students. Other quotas like SC,ST were also present. Students from all economic backgrounds were available as college was of very high repute and fee structure was very reasonable.
No there was no internship provisions at the time I used to study there. Do not know if they are providing the same at present.
Curriculum was annual and we had 3 sessionals every year and 1 end term in the end of year. Annually we had 6-8 subjects and same amount of practicals in each subjects. Yes the schedule was hectic as we had 3hrs of lectures everyday and 3hrs of practicals
I took autonomous all India level B.Pharm entrance conducted by Poona college of Pharmacy (PCP) in 2001 and got 50th rank Pan India. Entrance was completely based on pre medical test conducted by CBSE every year that time. Had counselling after the entrance and got admitted there.
Separate girls and boys hostels were available in the campus only which was the most convenient factor for outstation students in metro city like Pune. Rooms were shared by 4 students having separate bed,cupboard,study table and chair. Food was not so goo
Curriculum of PCP was considered to be one of the best in country that time. It was theory and equal amount of practicals oriented. Professors throughout encouraged students to publish papers based on independent research work. Overall we did fair well during the 4 year course.
Placements happened in final year of graduation but most of the companies came for medical representatives. B.Pharm eventually is only valued when PG has to be done after that which opens door for other profiles like research and development,production,finance,marketing etc. Companies like German Remedies,Cipla,Ranbaxy etc came for campus placement however a very few took the job offers as most of the students went for higher studies. Offer made of MR was in the range of 10K - 15K.
Had cultural events throughout the year with 2-3 events every month. We had a cultural secretary every year who managed the activities and participation all year. Infact I was cultural secretary too for a year. At the end of year we had annual cultural gathering which was participated on larger scale. Had seminars and intercollegiate participation in cultural and technical events. Every year PCP organizes Pharmacy cricket cup which was participated by about 20-25 pharma colleges and companies across Maharashtra state.
Fee structure was the best among pharma college across city and state. Be it government colleges and private colleges. Comprising 4 years of my technical graduation with facilities like most sophisticated labs and best infrastructure available we paid about 12k year, so not more than 50K for 4 years during 2001-2005.
Most of the faculties were Phd holders and well experienced. They are now very well know in pharma education having lot of world acclaims on their hats. They majorly focused on every aspect of education like theory and practical knowledge. Overall very s
I think overall college is good for graduation, this college is good for curricular activities other events are also taken. Faculty is good and qualified from good Universities. There are also other events which are held in this college.

Overall college has good academic ativities and provide competitive platform to grow Pharma profession. Also provide good reasrach collaboration with National research institute and industrial internships. Just Need to actively work for our profession.
First I got Research Fellowship of BARC mumbai and then I register Ph D on same research project. In that Bharati Vidyapeeth University conduct PhD Entrance exam which I have Qualified that exam and Register at University.
All over the college is very good and reputed and management is also very good.
The Bharti vidyapeeth's Poona college of pharmacy conducts a separate Entrance Exam that's BVP-CET through that on the basis of merit one can take admission. The addmision process is like to be in the month of July and exam is conduct in the month of june
Discipline wise college is good. Stipend is provided. Research exposure is good. We can apply for different fellowships under guidance of staff. Paper publishing is high. Only thing is that the college is not taking responsibility of placement.
