BEST THREE YEARS OF MY LIFE!
I have had many good experiences in my three years of college in Miranda house. Miranda house has one of the best structures in regard to other Delhi university colleges. The teachers and staff are very helpful and understanding.
I wanted to get into a good Delhi university college. I did not take any entrance examination. I applied for the course online. My percentage for my 12th standard board exam was 92.3% and i got through the first cutoff of Miranda House. I opted for Miranda House because it is one of the prestigious colleges of Miranda House and also it was my dream college.
FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES
The fee structure of Miranda house is feasible. The college fees for my course was nine thousand and the hostel fees for each ever roughly estimated was about forty thousand. The fee structure in Miranda house is comparatively very low then that of other private colleges.
Miranda House does have a placement cell wherein at the end of the year many known companies are invited and after seminars and interviews the students are selected. Companies such as Vipro, the Oberoi group are invited and the packages start from fifteen 15 k to 25 k.
The hostel facilities of Miranda house was very good. The room consisted of two beds, one big almirah, a big dressing table and two separate study tables and each room had a separate balcony. The room was very spacious. The mess food was also very good. The breakfast was very healthy and lunch, evening snacks and tea and finally dinner was also delicious. We got special food items on special days such as the festivals.
Before joining Miranda House college i contacted some alumni of Miranda House college through social media. They were very helpful in answering any question about Miranda house and were full of praises for it. There are many famous alumni of Miranda House college such as Sheila Dikshit, Nandita Das.
The faculty and staff of Miranda House are the best. The Professors and teachers are very good and understanding. They helped us whenever it was needed and classes were very interesting because of them. Most of our Professors had doctor's degree and were authors of many known academic books.
Miranda house is an all girls college but we did have college events where boys and girls from other colleges participated. We had a number of hostel parties which included going for socials with other college hostel students. It was fun. Many workshops are organised by the college and the respective departments for the students. in terms of extra curricular activities, many students participated in different clubs established in the college. Miranda house consisted students from all parts of India and there were some students from other countries too.
The Exam structure is detailed and good. We had internals for all subjects and it was of twenty marks each. There was an attendance criteria where we would get five marks if we had full attendance. The exam at end of each semester consisted of seventy five marks each for the subjects taken that semester. It was not hectic.
COURSE CURRICULUM OVERVIEW
We had studied a total of about twenty six subjects in a period of three years of college. All of the subjects were good and closely related to my course. We had the best teachers and also we had to take four optional paper. I chose Hindi, English, environmental studies and modern history as my optional paper as all of them were very scoring subjects.
Yes, i think Miranda house provides internship opportunities. I had not applied to any of the internships though. My roommate who was in another course had applied to the internship. It was an unpaid internship. She had said it was a good learning experience.
There were many events celebrated in Miranda house every year. First a college fest is held in the starting of a new year. It is one of the best experiences of college life. Many competitions take place between different colleges of Delhi university and many well known bands are invited to play and entertain the students. Another such main event is the founder's day where prices and scholarships are given to qualified students.
