KMC, New Delhi
Amazing experience with scintillating and life-changing moments.
FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES
Fees was nominal as the trust that ran the college was for charitable purposes. It had normative goals that had minimal mercenary objectives. Mostly there was an annual fees that could be paid in two instalments. There was absolute transparency in the fee structure.
Blue-chip firms seeking professionals from the literature field for deployment into creative, advertising and public relations functions were flocking to the institution. Bid ad firms also lined up for copywriting assignments. Publications hunted newbies for journalism roles.
Merit list based admissions during my time. Now, I have heard that they conduct and entrance test for under-graduate courses and interviews for post-graduate courses. Times have changed, so Delhi University has gone for a centralized admissions process now.
Yes, I did not opt for hostel accommodation and was allotted a single sharing room. The accommodation was comfortable and had the basic amenities for students. I stayed there for two years without any discomfort.
There is a vibrant alumni network spread across the globe. Seniors were very helpful after the initial ice-breaking and thereafter served as a support system not only throughout college but later as well.
Faulty selection was a lofty affair, with pedigreed professionals being shortlisted from the best of the institutions worldwide. Most lecturers had industry exposure and certifications from professional bodies. Re-learning was the norm those days and helped the students get a cutting edge.
Campus life was exciting. The male to female ratio was healthy with plenty of cultural diversity. Students from different parts of India came into the college and it was a cultural melting pot. The environment was friendly and amiable with skirmishes few and far between.
COURSE CURRICULUM OVERVIEW
Curriculum structure is one of the best in the world. Timely upgradations are done in sync with the times and my study there has helped me become a better professional. For In-depth exploration of topics, reference books were recommended and were available in the well stocked library.
Annual Festival, Dramas, Carnivals and Rock concerts were dime a dozen. The annual fest was a grand affair with sponsorships from corporates and industrialists. Technical excellence was a newborn baby in those times and folks were adopting computerization gradually.
LOAN/ SCHOLARSHIP PROVISIONS
I did not opt for scholarship, as I did not have any financial difficulties. My father paid for my expenses in college.
