The college is associated with one of the largest media houses I.e. Times Group. The name itself is a big attraction for companies who come to hire you. One unique feature that distinguishes Bennett from other colleges is its practical-based curriculum. I am a student of BA-J&MC and our course is based on practical experiences more than theoretical knowledge. The ratio of practical and theoretical knowledge in the curriculum is 70:30. This kind of education is mostly provided by universities abroad. Other significant things are the studios. Bennett University has its own television studio, radio studio, Mac labs, supercomputers. While other universities only tell you how the equipments look like, in this University you will be given a hands-on experience as to how equipments are used/operated. The courses offered cover all media segments may it be television journalism, print journalism, mobile journalism, radio, advertising, pr, event management, etc. Field trips are conducted.
Faculty plays an important role in the learning process. The faculty at Bennett is just amazing. The facility members have been a part of the media industry. They have more than 15-20 years of experience. You will also be provided with a mentor. The mentor (one of the faculty members only) will act as your guide and a go-to person in the University. If you have any doubts or concerns to share, you can visit the faculty, text them on WhatsApp, mail them at any point in time. You will certainly get a reply. When it comes to exams, they are very easy. Questions are mostly application-based. So if you have understood the concept, you will pass with flying colors. A good cgpa (if maintained throughout the course) will also help you to get a good internship or placement.
The college offers a compulsory internship at the end of the second year. This internship will be counted as a six-credit course, therefore, it will be compulsory for you to do this internship. If you do not like the internship offered by the college, you can find out internship on your own.
The placements are fine. People get internships and placements depending on their cgpa and their skills that they have learned throughout the course. You will also be provided with a mentor for your internship.
The actual fee is 4.95 Lakh per year (including hostel, mess, and other charges). If you are a day scholar you will not be required to pay the hostel and mess fee. Now the college also offers scholarships. It is a merit-based scholarship. This is how a scholarship scheme works 1. 80-85% (class 12th)- 10% scholarship offered 2. 86-90% (class 12th)- 20% scholarship offered 3. 91-95% (class 12th)- 30% scholarship offered 4. 95-99% (class 12th)- 50% scholarship offered 5. 100% (class 12th)- Free education/90% scholarship offered In case you get a scholarship during admission, you will have to maintain a cgpa of 8 or above to continue it in the next year.
The campus is big. The classrooms are amazing with projector facilities. The labs are well-equipped. Hostels are spacious. There are a various cafes or places to eat inside the campus other than the mess. You will get the cab and food-delivery options as well. The gym, swimming pool, and sports complex are well-equipped. In short, the campus has everything that you need. Apart from that, there are 15 clubs that cover cultural activities, dance, music, sports, fashion, and lifestyle, writing and debating, movies, gaming, event management, and whatnot. We celebrate every festival and culture with equal enthusiasm.
The rooms are big and spacious. There are no single rooms. The accommodation that you will be provided with will either be double or triple sharing depending on your preferences. The mess food earlier wasn't that great but with the passage of time, its quality has upgraded. The rooms and the mess have centralized ACs.you will get an almirah, a study table-chair, and a bed with a mattress.
Bennett conducts its own entrance exam. It is a virtual written test which judges your language proficiency.
There was an entrance test that tested the language proficiency (English for BJMC eng students and Hindi for BJMC Hindi students). The people who did not score well were given another opportunity. Their PI (personal interview) was conducted and depending on their performance they were selected. The topics of the written test were related to current affairs and general knowledge. Just make sure your typing speed is average.
From the second semester, students become eligible for internships but the placements start from the final year. 95% of students get their placement in renowned companies. My plans after getting the degree are to work either as a travel journalist or as an event manager.
The placement opportunities are tremendous in the college. Every year, the recruitment drive witnesses multiple jobs offer on the various media industry, publishing house, advertising agencies, and radio channels. Some of the renowned industries like- AAJ Tak, Zee News, Amar Ujala, Dainik Jagran, The Times Of India, Indian Express, All India Radio, IBN7, many more. They offered the highest salary package of INR 11 LPA & an average salary package of INR 5 LPA to the students.
Truly speaking, the placement record for MBA students, engineering students were too good. But since I opted for BA in Journalism and Mass communication, the placement record of my department was not so good. Even we went for an interview program on our own. Hardly 8-10 students got placed from our batch and the highest package offered was 2 LPA. Also, the number of companies that visited our campus was 10-15 among which were some event management companies, TCI, Naukri.com, and others. Further, after posy completion of my undergraduate, I started working rather than going for higher studies.
The placements are only provided to the technical courses. And the placement cell for our department was set up during my third year. No, as such placements were provided to our batch. But some of my teachers forwarded my CV to some of their Contacts.
Well the college was close to my hometown also I got good reviews for my college from many people.and my brother was also studying in the same college in different course so I took admission over here.
Placement and job for childrens are also very good aur college conducts and event every year that helps students to get internships and get new job opportunities. Soch job opportunities and internships and placement are also very good in our college.
Satyam fashion institute is one of the best institutes I must say because each and every member of this institute is so familiar with the students which helo them to adapt the surrounding of the college, faculties were very helpful in every situation and other staffs too.
Starting from the good remark. The students of the college are united and people misjudge the university by its name but the studies teachers are very helpful and generous. The bad remark would be the ongoing infrastructure construction in the university as it may hurt any student.
