1. Xavier has an unparalleled legacy pan India. Works as a perfect brand name. 2. Being a north-Indian, this meant an opportunity for me to expand my network and connections to the south and west of India as well. 3. Ranked in top 3 colleges for Media 4. The admission took into account both the marks of grade 12 and entrance test (which was easy as compared to other colleges) and the procedure is detailed on the official website. 5. For the general category, there were only 13 seats which made it really competitive. 6. The college focuses on your holistic development- pushes you to be empathic towards society and engage in social work, be a critical consumer, question everything around you, do extracurricular - all apart from academics. Attendance is compulsory too. So, in general, there’s an environment of sincerity. 7. Having diverse alumni working in almost all industries, exposure is excellent. College fests, workshops, guest lectures are a highlight.
I wanted to get into journalism which is why this was a safe bet. However, while attending the course, I feel everyone’s intellectual capacity has been challenged and upgraded. so we’re now encouraged to look at different fields like Marketing, Management, Research, Academia, etc. apart from classic media options. The faculty student ratio is pretty nice- 1:65 Due to the special nature of the course, the department of BMM is like a close knit family. The course has a liberal arts orientation with moderate emphasis on practical skills like photography, designing etc. The teaching method pushes you to become an independent learner and break free of the conventional way of learning that has been going on in schools (of spoon feeding). The exams are conducted timely, efficiently and are easy. Only students who haven’t studied economics in the past (in school) might face some issues but that said, it’s a smooth experience.
I haven’t explored this aspect as of yet because I plan on higher education instead of getting placed somewhere. However, reputed companies like media houses, ad agencies, banks, etc. do come to the campus and from what I’ve heard from my seniors, the experience is pleasant.
The course is highly subsidized and most students find no issue in paying these fees. There are scholarships, especially for international students. I don't think there are many on-campus jobs for first-year or second-year students but thereafter they do have limited opportunities. The college does put you in contact with organizations or companies that offer internships and opportunities.
Xavier’s annual fest Malhar is Asia’s largest student run-fest. It is extremely hyped. It happens in mid-August. Apart from Malhar, we host almost 30+ small fests that are department-specific. The college is bustling with activity throughout the year. Xaviers has two libraries which are extremely exotic. Book lovers love it. They have exclusive historical archives too. The library is one of the most important parts of the campus. I don’t know much about sports but extracurricular activities are compulsory for students. They have to complete a stipulated number of points per year. Throughout the year there are fests, workshops, lectures, volunteer opportunities, and what not! There’s a club for almost all activities- debate, drama, magazine (three languages), social work, environment, inter-religious studies, theory, commerce, film appreciation, etc.
The college provides campus placement if the student is eligible with not an only percentage but also with great creativity and skill. The average package provided is 25000. My plan after getting a degree is to do masters in film communication.
The reason for choosing this course was that I needed to do something different. The media field had always enticed me and this seemed like a good course. There are three permanent faculties who teach throughout the three years. Every semester some professors are hired on contract who are professionals in their fields, the rest of the subjects are taught by the permanent faculty members. The HOD is a PhD holder in sociology. The rest of the facilities have masters in their respective fields. The teaching methods are modern and up to date with the current system. The professors behave professionally and provide support whenever needed. More or less the term exams were timely. To be honest they were easy to pass with some preparation.
Usually, campus placements are from the third year of under graduation, but internships or even job options are available before that. Through the guidance of the professors or also listening to your peers, you may get to appear as an intern at small companies. Any kind of internship that may be, with small works, but what will matter is that students get an insight into the general functioning of an organization.
There are no campus placements available in the college. But once after completing the BMM degree, one can opt for working in any an agency, marketing firm, online website, etc. Or start your own business. Journalism students can work for any newspaper, magazine or TV news, radio, etc.
The college doesn't offer any in campus placements but the college recommends the students a lot of jobs and internships. The college provides job opportunities wherein only the college students are given first preference. Internships are also provided by the college during the course. So even if there is no campus selection, the college holds extreme market value and helps you find best opportunities.
The placements offers are shared with the students and they can opt for them according to their interests. The curriculum covers all the practical and theoretical knowledge which helps the students to be ready for the work environment. I am currently working as a Content Creator and I got this job because of my college's placement cell.
Placements for BMM students are practically non-existent. And even for students from other departments, the job profiles that usually come in are for BPOs and in-store sales support. Most packages range from 2LPA to 3.5LPA. This year, there were notable entries like TCS and Ikea but the job profiles were still menial. Although, alumni support is huge and helps most students in job finding.
No entrance exam required for journalism course. The HSC mark sheet speaks for itself. It's more of a first come, first serve opportunity. The sooner you contact college and register the higher the scope of one getting admission. Fee structure is 60,000 per year.
Since the college staff was extremely helpful, the admission process wasn't taxing. I had to take all the required documents in college and then fill the online form in the college office. Once that's done, you will get a fee slip which needs to be submitted in the college back itself. The entire process doesn't take more than 30 mins.
