It is a women's college, so women do have the utmost freedom inside the campus but it is still kind of a strict college. Studies are given more importance than anything hence Alphonsa never fails to bag most of the university ranks. Sports is one of the trademarks of the college, apart from the studies. Alphonsa always grabs the women's championship title in M.G. university sports meet. We can see teachers who are so dedicated to teaching all around the college. But Alphonsa is not all about studying, we got so many celebrations, fest and many more. Alphonsa has earned great fame so its always something to be proud of being an Alphonsian. Bachelor degree courses are mostly aided, so there won't be any semester fees. Admission processes according to the dates of M.G University, Kottayam.
I love Chemistry so I chose it to be my main. The chemistry department in Alphonsa is so good. Teachers are so much dedicated to teaching. We were about 40 students and we had 7 teaching faculty with great qualifications. Most of the teachers secured a PhD and had profound subject knowledge. Though it was kind of a spoon-feeding system, it was remarkably visible in our final grades. Exams were scheduled by M.G University, it wasn't timely but we always get many days off before the exam begins. Exams were moderately tough.
Third-year students are eligible for campus placements. Mostly banks visit and recruit students. But generally, placement is poor in the college. 80% above students get placed. I like to continue my studies by pursuing masters.
Most of the Bachelor's programme is aided, so there won't be any semester fee. But we had to pay almost 3000 Rs each year, but if a student is from a family whose annual income is lower than 2 lakhs then she can apply for KPCR or E-grant so that she doesn't have to pay it. The college also offers various merit-based and need-based scholarships too. On-campus job is not available in the college.
We have a youth fest, dance fest, food fest, arts day, annual day celebration and many more every year. Arts and annual day happen in January. The library is large though we are short of the latest best selling and trending books. Journals are available. Classrooms are basic, not smart enough. Sports is active but extracurricular is not that much active. There are many clubs like music, dance, art, literature, JY, etc, run by students alone.
Hostel and PG are available all around the area. It is much costly compared to other areas. There are run by the convent sisters. Full accommodation, food and water will be provided. Rooms are mostly shared by 2 or 4 students. Quality of food is average. We get Kerala food with a non-veg a day kind of menu. Registration is offline and online. The fee was 4100 a month for me. PG rented rooms are available around the region.
The placement is guaranteed here. From the starting of the final semester, the eminent companies are coming here for interview and group discussion. Various companies visiting here for recruitment are Titanium, KMML and FACT Ltd. Emoluments and package is well accepted by the students. Around 25 percentage of the students are getting early placements from this college. I was pursued for higher qualification to Nagpur and later on was absorbed from one of the leading petrochemical organisation after completion of the course from this college. Overall satisfaction is almost complete from this institution, since the basics are well taught here.
There is no campus placement in the college. No such activities happened there. Other colleges offer such placement programs. Employability depends on each individuals hard-work. They have to get into the outside world and seek for new job opportunities. Mostly the job opportunities are in the private sector for this course. Even though public sector also offers jobs.
The college administration was good and very strict in all ways. So my parents choose this college for my better graduation. I completed my graduation in Botany and Biotechnology bacause I love plants, animals, elements, microbes and the technological ways of their functions.
The college is situated in the heart of Konni city and has a well connected transport system to catersthe traveling needs of the students. The college is situated in a silent, calm and lush green environment. The college has produced several rank holder under the university through its vision of providing quality education.
It's a college run by nuns. And it's the first women's college in Kerala. Well discplined. Good infrastructure and lab facilities. I wanted to experience hostel life. It's affiliated under the university of calicut.
The college doesn't offer every student a bright future, in fact it is the calibre of the students that garaged this institution as one of the top in the country. The College had made it's name and due to this students with high index mark joins this college. In fact the college is in needy of the students.
I have attended the entrance test for the above course. I found the B.Sc(Ag) course to be highly challenging to develop technological interventions for increasing productivity of crops in Kerala.The test was very impressing since I had made some preparations and I could succeed to score good score( third rank, don't remember the score) in it. No interview was there. The B.Sc (Ag) course was offered in Kerala only in the College of Agriculture, Vellayani, Thiruvananthapuram,Kerala
The students who have passed the B.Sc(Ag) course were placed as Junior Agricultural Officer on adhoc basis initially and later on selecetd by the Kerala Public . Service commision and posted on permanent basis in the Department of Agriculture.
