FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES
Fees is little expensive. For Pharm D course its 1,78000 per annum approx. That's just the tuition fees. Hostel fees extra. But considering the standards the college is bound to, this fees should be okay I guess. JSS is the only institution with ACPE certification in Asia Pacific region and the 3rd (I guess) in the world to have so.
Quite a few companies usually go for campus interviews in pharmacy colleges. As far as my knowledge the companies that are having placements from JSS are Novartis, Dr.Reddys,Cholayil,Synowledge etc. No information available on package. But mostly they'll be around 15-20k max month.
Hostel is available separately for boys and girls. Triple sharing for guys and 4-5 sharing for girls. Hostel has good facility of food(Only Veg). Hostel fees is approximately 25,000 per year and the charges towards food is to be paid monthly which comes around 2500 every month.
Being a top class institutions almost all the faculties are knowledge full and being capable of handling all the topics. This is what makes the JSS students stronger when compared to pharmacy students from other institutions. All professors have completed their Ph.D.
So here comes the funniest and happiest part of JSS. The ratio of boys to girls is somewhere like 30:70. That's the truth about the 'colourful' JSS institution in this beautiful place and definitely you're going to enjoy your college life with these colourful butterflies.
