Faculties are great and they complete the syllabus positively. Specifically, the libraries(Science & Arts) of Bethune College are outstanding. No need for private tuition. There are no bad aspects except for the attendance problem. All have to attend every class every day. People from distance should take a pg/hostel to continue. The first reason for choosing this college is their "faculties" and secondly the recognition. It's one of the top colleges in Calcutta. Thirdly, there is no political ambiance. And lastly, the beautiful campus of Bethune College attracted me a lot. The admission process is conducted very smoothly completely based on merit. Check their websites regularly to get a notice about. I had read many question-answers from Quota and seen the reviews from Collegedunia and other websites too. I had done my ug (B.Sc in Psychology with two general subjects, botany, and zoology) course from here. They only offer Industrial Psychology for post-graduation courses.
I was from Pure Science Background in +2 level but I was interested in mental health and the human psyche. I choose this course because of my interest in Psychology. Also, there are really many scopes in different paths in the future. You can choose industrial oriented works, hospital job, even you can open your own clinical setup after getting RCI licensed in Clinical and counseling psychology. There are 5 faculties now from Industrial Background and 34 students generally 17 from B.A and 17 from B.Sc. Don't worry about the name of the degree "B. A and B.Sc". Those who choose arts subjects as their general subjects got B.A and who choose the science subjects as their general subjects got the degree "B.Sc". 4 faculties out of 5 have completed PhDs and they all are knowledgeable. They all are from Industrial Background and they offer Industrial and Organisation Psychology as "Post Graduation" Course. They take mid-terms exams too. Every class and exams are conducted regularly and timely.
I don't know about every department. But Psychology Department didn't offer any internship at the ug level but they offer it at pg level. If you want to do an internship under other companies or hospitals you can do it. The faculties are very supportive in nature. They will help you to continue your internship program and to manage the classes too.
From the 5th semester, students will be eligible for campus placement. Many recognized companies like TCS, WIPRO, etc. visited and offered a job with a healthy salary after the selection process. Maximum percentages of students from Bethune College are getting placements in recognized companies. I also got selected in TCS. But my plan was to continue my post graduation degree, so I left the job opportunity. My future plan is to complete my pg degree in clinical psychology and after that, I want to complete my MPhil.
As this is a government college, there are very low fees for any course and the college itself offers many types of scholarships. Please check the official websites of Bethune to know in detail. I didn't apply for any scholarship though. There are many merit-based scholarships too. During the third year, many recognized companies like TCS, Wipro, etc offer job opportunities through college campus career counseling programme. I got selected in TCS but I didn't continue the job due to my further studies. They offered me a healthy amount.
Usually, there are placements from Loreto College. However, the batch of 2020 suffered bad luck due to Covid and everything becoming online. Other than those who were interested in placements, the majority chose to pursue higher studies in different institutions here and all over India.
After 6th sem, but this is BSc degree, so the student must prefer for MSc PhD bed and then interested in Hobbs like railways, banking, school teacher, college professor, some of the students are getting prepared for UPSC or wbcs to become IAS or IPS or IRS, or officers in the rank of bdo SDO etc. More than 70% of student get placement. My plan is after getting this degree I get MSc from any IIT and PhD from any IIT.
20% student getting placements.
I wanted a Girl's college which looks into the disciplinary system and the studies equally side by side. Women's Christian had shown the fulfillment of my criteria which were necessary for me. It is ideal if one wants a perfectly disciplined ambience
This is the first ever Women's college in India and played an important role in Independence movement.It has a glorious history and its previous students Kadambari devi, Mrs. Chandrmukhi they were one of the glorious women of India. The only negative remark about college is the washrooms should be clean and more hygenic.
Facility is good and the same is infrastructure. But its fame outclasses both. So if a student struggles with his course in that vast environment, then nobody is there to give him extra guidance and care. Administration/management is slower than expected
