HANSRAJ - PERFECT PLACE TO STUDY AND ENJOY
I always wanted.to get into SRCC, but my score was just 2 marks short of the SRCC cut off in my admission year. Hence, I was left with 2 options, Hindu or Hansraj. Hindu has better fests and overall reputation, whereas Hansraj has better faculties and crowd because the strength of Bcom students is around 250 here, which gives diversity in the course, Hence I chose Hansraj. The admission process is very simple, I got my admission in 2nd cut off, it was announced on 30 June, I went to college submitted my original documents for verification and paid the fees online, everything was done and completed within a day and I was finally in DU.
Students are eligible for placements in their final year i.e. 5th semester onwards. A lot of companies offer placement including, deloitte, EY, JP Morgan, DE Shaw, Bain etc offering highest package of 29LPA at an average package of 5LPA. For Bcom, the placement percentage is around 20%-30% as most of the students opt for further studies either in form of CA or post graduation. Since I was pursuing CA, I got my dream articleship from my college placements in a Big 4 at a stipend of ?1,80,000 per annum.
In the room you are provided with a bed, table, chare, almirah, fan and tube fitted. You can get your own water cooler and fit it at extra cost of just ?250 per month. Me quality is excellent unlike any other hostel. The food served is amazing and the serving staff is very polite. It is very easy to register. Just fill up the form after you get admission to college. This facility is provided to a limited students because only 200 seats are there in hostel. If you rent a PG outside, it will cost almost double the hostel cost at around 1,50,000 per annum.
Hansraj student union organises its annual cultural fest every year named Confluence in March every year, where there are various activities like dance, music, DJ night, star night and various educational and extracurricular competition as well. Hansraj has an amazing library with digitized system of issue and return, books are easily available and it is super easy to get it issued, just insert the book and your ID card and it is issued within seconds. Classrooms are well equipped with ACs, and projectors in every class. Sports and extracurricular activities are very good in college. There are around 25 societies which are involved in these activities which students can join and participate.
COURSE CURRICULUM OVERVIEW
I wanted to pursue CA along with my graduation and having commerce background, Bcom Hons was the best course suited for me. At Hansraj, there are 250+ students in every batch, for which there are around 5 teachers teaching a batch, hence the faculty: student ratio turns out to be 1:50 which is very decent in my opinion. The staff here is very supportive and teaching method is amazing. The faculty is so supportive that they guide you not only for your course, but also for other activities or professional advice. They support in your decision to pursue other courses along with Bcom as well. We used to have class tests which we called internal assessments twice or thrice every semester along with assignments and presentations. Of course there were end semester exams after every semester, which was set at moderate level- not too easy, not too tough, which made them adequately tough to pass which meant we had to study quite a lot to pass.
The placement cell also offers internships where in various companies come to offer internships including Taj, EY, Deloitte etc at an average stipend of ?5000 per month. Every student of the college can apply for internship, subject to company eligibility rules.
LOAN/ SCHOLARSHIP PROVISIONS
The college fees is around ?18000 per annum including examination fees and all charges, which is hiked around ?500-1000 every year. For students not belonging to NCR, there is Boy's hostel which has limited seats, costs around ?40000 per semester and serves amazing food, unlike other hostels, along with all other facilities. For economically weaker students, there is a need cum scholarship programme which is held every year, the students apply for it, along with all income proof of family and an interview is held to assess the needs of the students requiring scholarship and accordingly, the students are awarded either 50% or 100% fees scholarship. This programme is held every year to provide scholarship to needy students. Placements are decent in this college, Since I was pursuing CA , I got my dream articleship in Big4 at a stipend of?15,000 per month.
