This is one of the best women's college in the district and the English department has the best staffs. For people in and around the area, this college is the first preference for most girls and their parents.
Though it was an Autonomous institution, the syllabus was awesome. There was a great panel of professors who kept updating the syllabus according to latest needs. We had three internal assessments, a model exam and then semester exam.
Placements were available and mostly schools and colleges from in and around the city came to recruit us. Though we didn't have internship in our college, we were able to apply for part time doctorate degree helping us to earn while we finish our degree.
There were so many college events apart from the events organised by the department. We had college inauguration, freshers day, inter collegiate cultural meet, founder's day, sports day and the competitions conducted by the department. UGC sponsored seminars were also organised.
The fees was highly affordable as it was a government aided course. We just had to pay minimum fees for the course as the rest will be borne by the government. Apart from that, we had to pay the exam fees and fees for other optional courses.
So many government based scholarships were available. Few scholarships can be applied directly through the college. While for UGC scholarships, students have to apply online to avail those. For university rank holders, 2000 per month was granted.
The students represent national and international levels tournaments in sports. The labs were of the latest state of art facility and it enabled the students to be better than the students of other colleges and gave us a better exposure to latest technology.
Hostel was just okay. From the college the hostel was 2km away. So the college has buses to drop the students from the hostel to the college. Since the students were dependent on college bus, it seemed safe to travel.
Alumni meet, Purples day out as the call it in my college gave us an inspiration while learning about the real life employment opportunities from our seniors. Also the alumni helped the under prevlidged students by providing scholarships for their studies.
As soon as 12th results were declared, we had to provide an attested copy of the mark sheet and the students were selected based on the marks in English. Also a basic interview was conducted by the faculty of English to test our language skills.
As it was a government aided course, all the staffs has the highest qualification. Each professor was an expert in her field and were really guiding us in our research and were easily approachable to clear all our doubts.
The minimum eligibility for getting admission was to qualify three years of graduation or its equivalent from a recognised university. After qualifying my Bachelor of Arts in Economics , i took admission in this course. The admission was totally based on the marks obtained in the graduation.
My overall experience in placement and job opportunities was good. The college provides good placement opportunities by arranging many campus interview for the final year students. Many companies like HCL, AXIS BANK, ICICI, Max life insurance, Vodafone, IBM, Cognizant etc visit our college every year for campus recruitment. The average salary package offered by the companies was 7 lakh annually. They select students based on the performance in the interview.

There is no placements and job opportunities provided .Neither their is any provision of internships.But the learnings from this course is so effective that a student doesn't find much difficulty in seeking job.
The college has good in the language before some few years back. And still now it’s somhow good in relevance in the studies but sometimes much more pressure and extra works that was not much necessary in the departmental curriculum. One bad things is the college didn’t listen to the students voice and opinions and students were considered as money. Much more pressure and once president said is finalised and no options. There is many stories within the students that cannot reveals but most of all they wait for the graduation.
The Stella Maris College offers 40 seats in the P.G course. They conduct an entrance exam for the students who apply online for the course.

The college was known for the great exposure that it provides especially in the department of English.
