LIFE AT DR. Y.S.R HORTICULTURAL UNIVERSITY
FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES
There are two different types of fee structure for both merit and payment quota, the merit seat fee for the whole course of three years is Rs. 2,03,117 and the fees for payment seat is Rs. 8, 117,600 for the whole course, there is a huge difference. But, the students can get education loans from any centralized banks.
Many of the staffs in this college are actually the students of this college, so that is an opportunity that the college provides, apart from this there are various organizations hiring from here. Some of our seniors got placed in government organizations and various well-known institutes.
I wanted to join Horticulture and luckily I got into this college. I wrote the EAMCET exam, an entrance exam by the government of Andra Pradesh. Based on the marks I obtained in my entrance and boards I was called for the admission (counselling) process.
Both the alumni and the current seniors help us a lot the former in recommending us jobs and giving ideas to improve in career and the later in helping us with academics, most of our seniors are in good positions which is very helpful for us.
All our staffs are well-qualified staffs with great knowledge of the subject they teach. Some of them are PhD holders, they seem to be strict but they are very approachable in fact. Their teaching methodologies are great, they give us time after every class to clear doubts and stuff.
The college gives equal importance to cultural and sports activities which is what more than just academics that a student needs in his/her college life. In this college, there are more girls than boys. The labs are very well maintained.
COURSE CURRICULUM OVERVIEW
