SPA, New Delhi
No one is perfect. I am happy with what I am getting from my college.
FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES
The feasibility of college varies as per individual. Roughly for admission fee, mess fee and hostel fee, it comes around 150000 per year. Along with that there are many expenses like field visit, everyday travelling, trips, stationary and other expenses.
We get to have internship in 8th semester as part of the curriculum which ranges from 4 to 8 months, which varies as per interest of intern, firm and work. We also have a placement cell. Some big companies do make it to SPA including Deloitte, EY, CBRE, EGIS, JLL but the average package would be about 5–6 L with the highest that I’ve heard about 10 LPA being offered by one of the Big Four.
I always wanted to be an architect. Since the college in which I am studying is the best in india. So, to get admission in S.P.A, we have to pass exam JEE MAINS PAPER-2. I got 177 rank and got admission in the college. According to rank I was also able to get the hostel. After the exam which is conducted on first Sunday of April, we have to attend JOSAA counselling, in which we get the college according to our rank. Then in last week of July the admission process starts and classes starts just after the allotment of hostel.
Yes, I got hostel in both first and second year. In first year, we get rooms with occupancy of 3 people and then from second to fifth year, we get rooms with single occupancy. Rooms are average. We can also share rooms with our batch mates officially. Within the hostel campus we also have a courtyard where everyone gathers and do various activities.
Everyone in the college is helpful including juniors, batch mates, seniors, alumni, and faculty. We also have interaction sessions with seniors.
We all have a group with faculty for each subject. We can approach them personally by phone or e-mail. No. of Lecturers present in the class is according to the length of lecture and importance. Most of the faculty is well experienced as they all are graduated from the same college.
We enjoy our hostel life. We get several dj nights, parties, fests and festivals celebrations in the hostel. There are various cultural societies for various activities like installations dance, music, games, painting, movies etc in which individual can participate and enhance their skills.
COURSE CURRICULUM OVERVIEW
Exams are conducted once in a semester (in the end). Assignments are given each week and marked accordingly. We get a time of one week to complete assignment of each subject which is not a bad deal. Also we get weekends off to have some time for relax after 5 days of classes and submission.
We have events for sports, fests like MINI- ATHLOS, MINI-UTOPIA, ATHLOS, UTOPIA, INTER-SPA. Since it is not a technical institution, so we have only cultural festivals and sports events which ranges to 6 or more per year. Also, every major festival including regional festivals are celebrated with students of all batches, within the hostel campus.
LOAN/ SCHOLARSHIP PROVISIONS
College offers a scheme STUDENT AID FUND every year where an individual gets 25000 RS as per financial situation and merit status.
