IHM, New Delhi
So overall a great institute to study at. Once you get the admission you'll surely complain about the hard work one has to do. But as time passes you'll be a completely different personality. You'll become a 'smart' professional. And when you leave the institute at the end of the course you're surely gonna miss it and you'll surely get to know the importance of being form The IHM PUSA .
I took the NCHMCT JEE i.e. National Council for Hotel Management and Catering Technology-Joint Entrance Exam. I secured All India Rank 15(Fifteen). I opted for this institute because it is the best institute for hotel management in India. Moreover it has a tie-up with Hotellier De Laussange,Switzerland which the best institute for HM in the world. Hence it has an edge over other institutes when it comes to study material. The admission procedure includes the JEE and then counselling rounds in which the institutes are allotted as per the all India Rank.

The hostel has gym and recreational facilities. There are PGs also in the close proximity of the institute with rent changing as per the facilities.
Once the students pass out of this institute they're offered membership to the Pusa Allumini Association. The Association is very active and organizes events from time to time so that the alumni can meet and literally have fun.

The faculty of this institute is surely one of the best. They have the experience which backs them in all aspects. The faculty is very friendly yet resourceful. All of them are expert in their fields. They are always there to help you face the challenges and stand right beside you when you need them the most.
The life at ihm pusa can't be described in words. It has to be experienced itself to feel it. The food being served at the institute is nothing like "mess" food . Yes i mean it.

The course runs on semester system and is spread across 6 Semesters. They've Semester end final exams and terminal exams in between there is a saying about IHM Pusa which says that you need to work very hard to "fail" in IHM Pusa. This is because if you pay attention in the class then you don't even need to revise for the exams. And I literally mean it.
The institute doesn't provide internship. But it does provide skill development course through the "Hunar Se Rozgar " scheme. For the BSc and MSc students they have to go to the hotels for 17 and 8 weeks respectively for the industrial exposure training.
