College management can definitely test the patience. There have been bitter-sweet experiences regarding them. But definitely, they can increase their 'helping the students' motto by notch as we often have to run from here to there just to get one work done.
Fergusson turned autonomous as soon as I got admission for my MA. This greatly changed the curriculum and kind of added practical aspects to English (surprisingly). It was relevant and not something which could be just 'crammed and puked' on the paper. We were told to research, present, analyze and introspect everything right from history of literature to modern day aspects of teaching and writing. It was actually quite interesting to study English literatute from a very different perspective. Campus interviews are definitely arranged at college, but considering the current COVID 19 situation, everything has been experiencing a pause. But certainly, our curriculum did help us get an insight into the outside world.
There are opportunities usually. However, this year it has been difficult due to COVID 19.I did attend an interview test for a proof-reading and editing company after my Bachelor's (same college), but they required somebody who was pursuing Masters. Nonetheless, it was a good experience.
Our college fests are an absolute blast. We have departmental fests which are held around December where each department gears up to conduct their own fest like Wordsworth ( English), Psy-fy ( psychology), Wallstreet (Economics), so on and so forth. Fergusson's cultural fest Muktachanda is all the rage in Pune as it invites noteworthy people to interact with the students, and is open to all. The fests are a huge success as people from other colleges are also invited.
The fee structure is quite feasible. However, there are two sections : 'grant' and 'non-grant'. The fee structure varies in these scenarios as mostly non-grant section has a higher fee structure. Also, there are multiple courses provided at college encompassing both bachelor's and master's degree so again this aspect needs to be considered. Overall though, the fee structure can be referred to as feasible.
There are scholarship opportunities available depending upon different criteria. The primary one is the reservation quota where the college waives off a certain percentage of fee for students who have all the authentic documents. These students have to fill a scholarship form affiliated to the local municipal corporation and then move ahead with the fee payment.
The campus is absolutely beautiful. The architectural magnificence can be observed through the colonial style buildings. There are lots of places for students to chill throughout the campus. The library is enormous with a book associated with every subject. Ferguson is a perfect blend of modern with the traditional. We have a strong diversity as there are international students from Iran, Afghanistan, Thailand, etc. Regarding gender ratio, greatly depends on the course, for instance, in our course, [MA (English -2nd year)] there are almost 45 girls as opposed to 15 boys According to me, the tolerance level towards gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation cannot be judged when we talk about the entire campus. But personally, I never felt any discrimination around me, in my course or the department (but again it is like judging a bucket of water from a lake). There have been controversial political issues here certainly, but these have not affected the standard of education we have received. More than often, the general atmosphere of the college is quite peaceful.
Senior students are often helpful in lending us question papers or guiding us through certain difficulties. For instance, I experienced a huge glitch during my admission procedure. The admission in-charge did guide me through, but one of my senior actually comforted me and assisted me in getting the issue solved.
Masters is English is what I have always wanted to do considering I either wanted to go into content writing or teaching English. The procedure for the same was an entrance test which was conducted in May 2018. After which, I qualified and got in as I cleared the exam. Fergusson was always my first priority as it has excellent teaching staff for English, and who would say no to the sprawling campus. Add that to the many good food joints around it(brownie points.) The admission procedure involved confirming my seat, an online procedure, payment and voila. I was in.
Our lecturers were certainly qualified. Their educational degrees were apt as some of them were already doctors and most of them pursuing it. Their knowledge was at par with teaching experience. For the entire English department, there are at least 10 teachers approximately, all of them experts in their own subjects like American English, Indian literature, Post- Colonial English literature, and others.
Placement wise it's a good college. AVG package is around 4 to 5 lacks. But it depends upon which branch you are referring to. Computer and IT branch avg package may go up to 4 to 5. Companies do come for placements but getting placed in your core company with a good package is the real challenge. Else you will be placed with the minimal package and at a place where you will have no interest. If you have sound skills in coding and have a few achievements marked on your resume, I believe you can get a handsome package. Coming back to the mass recruits, they also play a major role in placements same as in other colleges. Concluding I would say if you score a good CGPA in your exams you will certainly get placed. Companies visited are as a follows:-BSA corporation, Jindal soft seating ltd, SGS technology, Videocon,d\Digvi Warner, capstone security (2 times), IBM India (2 times), Suzlon LTD, etc.
Placements : Placement in our college is very good. More than 50% of students get placed every year. Packages in the college vary from 2 LPA to 12 LPA. Around 30% of students got an internship(without paid) and training. Top recruitment companies are TCS, Reliance jio, Infosys, Teradata. The students are eligible for placements from the 6th /7th semesters. Students get placed on the basis of their all-over academics performance, technical skills as well as with good pointers. Currently, I am pursuing the third year, but I want to give the gate exam, and also I will try for higher education like M. Tech/MBA.
if you are talking about Indira institute of management then yes this college has great history of placements.Indira group has many colleges but go for IIMP(Indira institute of management) only.and if you are getting admission in PUMBA(Pune University MBA department) then go for it as it it duke of all college for MBA.
I took CAT entrance exam for this particular course. I have a limitation of not leaving the state and of all the colleges in the state, MITCON institute of management , Pune stood out as the best in terms of education, Facilities like library, sports and WIFI.
the placements are good in our college. In my current batch Its been only 1 month since the placements have been started and there are already 55 students placed out of the total strength of students with 57 offer letters in hand with an average package of 5.4L. which I think is an good score so far.
