Visva-Bharati University is a central university which was established by Rabindranath Tagore. The university is located in the Birbhun district of West Bengal. Amazing faculty of the university is the main reason for my preference. Moreover, this is the only central university of Bengal. The admission process takes place during the month of June. The form filling process generally starts from the month of May. For taking admission in graduation level, there is no entrance tests and is entirely based on the marks obtained bu students at the 10+2 level except for the departments of art(Kala Bhavana and Shilpa Sadana) and music (Samgeet Bhavana). Only these two departments take an admission test for pursuing graduation. The University takes an entrance test for each department for pursuing a masters degree. One can also pursue any certificate course along with any regular course such as French, Russian, Italian, Japanese, Hindi, Dance, Music and many more.
I have chosen this course because right from my school life I wanted to pursue honours in English and due to the amazing faculty members I have opted for this university. I have come to know about the faculty members from one of my family friends. In the English department, each class contains almost 34-38 students and the department contains 20 professors. 3-4 professors have foreign degrees and rest are from the most reputed educational institutions of India. Per class consist of 1 hour and the topics are revised repeatedly. If any problem arises while personal reading of the text, the professors are always there to solve it. The university abides by the semester system which has a span of 6months. For the English department, you will easily get 60 percent if you work hardly and follow the regular classes.
See, the university is not a commercial one. You can pursue honours, Masters, PhD and certificate courses in the university. There is no such campus placement system but the university has an employment cell which is mainly for those who pursue honours in foreign languages such as French, Italian, Russian, Chinese, Japanese and many others.
In 2017, when I took admission the fee structure of a year could not cross 3000-4000 a year. But with the recent fee hike policy, it is up to 7000 per year and the admission form costs Rs 1000 for general candidate and 300 for sc candidates. Only the top 3 students of a year get a scholarship of 1000 rupees.
Trust me, life on campus is amazing. Once you go there, you will not return from there. The social environment is so nice and calm. One leads a healthy and peaceful life there. There is no such annual fest in the university. But programmes like freshers, farewell and various university programmes anandamela, Dol, Poushmela, Christostav, etc takes place. Almost every month, there is some programme. There is a central library and also there are separate libraries for each department. The Central Library contains a reading room, journal section, stacks. There are ample opportunities for sports enthusiasts. Each year the university makes a team for competing at National level in various sports. It also has separate Bhavan for sports named Vinaya Bhavana which includes departments like Yoga, Physics education, etc.
The hostel room contains a chair, a table, a study lamp, a tube light, a fan, an almirah, a bed for a student. Generally in a room, 3 Students live together but a student can also apply for a single room which costs 3000 per month. Room with 3 boarders charges 500rupees per student and is absolutely free for sc, st students. The meal quality is not very good.
I'm not not sure about the placement but I do remember during my admission I had to fill one form where I was been asked whether I'll opt for job or study further, it was kind of a placement registration. Though my college have a good placement cell where 35 to 40 companies visit including the likes of TCS, Ernst & Young, PWC, Deloitte, Oracle, Axis Bank, KPMG, Indigo to name a few. People like me with theoretical background have to work harder to get placed into such companies as this time it's about skills you possess not only the degree you carry.
From the 5th Semester, students will be eligible for campus placements. Till now we got three Campus Recruitments by Wipro, Amazon, and Capgemini. There are other placements too. One might consult the In-campus Career Counsellor for suitable jobs in the future. Moreover, the professors were always ready to help us giving the leads of other job placements as well.
On average, 60% of the students got placements in the college. The highest salary offered was Rs. 30,000, the lowest was Rs. 8,000 per month and the average was Rs. 12,000. The mechanic, accountants, assistant manager, etc., were the roles offered to students in the college. About 45% of the students got internships from the college with a minimum of Rs. 5,000 to a maximum of Rs. 10,000 stipend during the internship. There is a placement cell in the college, it is much efficient and useful for students.
As I said In the last review, I am so new in this college that I literally do not know anything. But about the placement of our college, there is none, like literally none, there is no placement policy or support. But I am totally okay with it as I am preparing for UPSC
Infrastructure is well developed, study material is so energetic, teacher provides valuable guidance, feedback, hospitality facilities is extremely good. Proper hostel facilities, library and many more
Students are verified through their personality test, various tasks, written exam and many more things, Gd process is different from other universities and extremely fair and not partial
The students become eligible for placements in their third year of the undergraduate program. Companies like Zomato, Itc, Cognizant have conducted placement drives in the college. Salaries range from 1 to 3 lakhs per annum. A dedicated placement cell is in place for conducting the placements.
