Lady brabourne college is one of the premiere colleges under the University of Calcutta, and both the college staff as well as the teaching faculty are always there to help the students with any issues.
The college had it's own entrance test which was a multiple choice question test for economics some other departments, like biotechnology had interviews for selecting students.
FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES
Being a government funded college under the University of Calcutta, the fees structure is very favorable during my time, the annual fees are about Rs 1500.
Most of the students in my batch were interested for further studies,so my department did not have a dedicated placement cell. However, people interested for placements mostly have to do it on their own.
The college has a girl's hostel, right adjacent to the college campus the first years students share a dormitory but from the second year they are eligible for separate rooms on a twin sharing basis. However, during my stay in the hostel, I was not very h
Our seniors were extremely helpful, be it with notes, or administrative processes not only did they help us with academics and co-curricular activities, we also had a lot of bonding in terms of department picnics, fest etc.
The campus life is pretty lively not only do we have an annual fest, an alumni meet and cultural programmes, there are also regular half-day events held, especially during the winters, when outdoor activities, such as gardening and badminton are encouraged. The girls regularly participate in inter-college activities, such as quizzes, debates etc all across the city, and I have never felt any discrimination in the campus during my stay.
The exam structure is uniform throughout all the colleges under the University of Calcutta there are two college exams and a final University exam there is enough time for students to prepare before all the exams.
COURSE CURRICULUM OVERVIEW
The course curriculum is provided by the University of Calcutta. The faculty is knowledgeable and not only do they teach well, they are always ready to help students in case of any doubts or clarifications.
We did not have any provision for internship since we had our annual university exam in the summer months, the summer vacations were spent preparing for the exam, and there was no scope for an internship.
The main event of the college is the 2 day Annual Cultural Fest, called Kaleidoscope that is held during the winters other than that we also had alumni meet and annual day for prize distribution.
LOAN/ SCHOLARSHIP PROVISIONS
Since it is a government college with very less fees, there is hardly any need to avail loans however, students with consistently good performances and from a poor financial background are given book grants and living expenses scholarship.
