After completing my 12th, I wanted to pursue Mathematics and hence decided to do maths Hons from Delhi university. I studied and researched about Maitreya college and talked to some alumni and found it quite good. It has all the facilities including good academics as well as extracurricular. I was waiting for its shortlists and finally got admission in its 5th cutoff. Basically, you should have your 12th score equal to or more than the cut off to be eligible for admission. The good thing is this is a girls college. Also, the faculty is very supportive and intelligent. So it has been a good experience here for two and a half years.
I had a great passion for Mathematics, that's why I was sure of taking maths Hons and my decision proved to be good after getting admission here. The syllabus is up to today's requirement and the teachers are actually very particular about the syllabus and students understanding of each concept. We even had extra doubt classes. Also, practical studies are there along with theory to get a better understanding. We have our mid sem exams in between whose marks are considered for internal. Basically, it's 75 for theory, 10 for mid sem exams, 10 for presentation/ assignment and 5 for attendance and we have a total of 6 semesters. So basically there is no such burden for the studies as we enjoy it along with other activities.
There is an annual internship fair every year which gives thousands of internship opportunities. Apart from that, we are provided internship opportunities every month with different companies. some are unpaid while some are with a stipend that varies from 1000 to 10000. Some good companies that come this time are Bajaj capital, Skyll.me, Resumod, Elite and many more. Basically, there is a good opportunity to boost up your CV.
The placement cell is actually very good and provides a lot of opportunities. There is an annual internship fair also where 100s of companies come and recruit students of all years and all courses as interns and the maximum stipend for these internships even go to 10k per month for just a part-time internship. The job opportunities are there but not very good for the science stream, they are much better for commerce and humanities. There are many Tier A and tier B companies recruiting a good amount of students like VQMS, SMAASH and many NGOs also. The placement percentage is around 60% and most of the students want to do post-graduation for further growth. I have plans to do MBA after my graduation.
The good thing about our college and the whole of Delhi University is the fees. We have to pay just 10,000 for the whole year including all the college fees. There are separate scholarships available also whose notification is given by teachers when forms are available. But the Non- Delhi students face issues in staying. The PGs are a little expensive near the college (Satya Niketan) and many of them are too congested. But yes if you are able to find good roommates and good pg, then surely your college life, as well as pg life, is going to be great.
Our college fest "RHAPSODY" is very famous. Last year in Feb 2020 we had DARSHAL RAVAL on our campus and the crowd there was just amazing. The fest time is the best to enjoy and also we have many other colleges nearby ap we can visit them too. There are many college societies here like for dance, music, fashion, dramatics, entrepreneurship cell and placement cell. There are different departments and various activities are usually going on there. Anybody can get good experience in these societies and can follow their passion along with studies. The library of our college is amazing. The peaceful environment can make anyone interested in studies. Also, there is the option of an E-library where we can avail books online also and the library also provides us previous year question paper for more help. The classrooms are actually not very good. We often had this problem that we were not able to get the alloted classroom. The sports ground is very large and equipped with many sports amenities.
The placements are good but not for every program like they do offer to sit in the placements for every course students but the companies which come for recruitment are mainly looking for students from commerce background. I am not saying that people from other courses do not get placed at all but if you're from a commerce background there is a high chance for you to get placed.
Lots of placement comes in the 3rd or final year of college. A lot of students get placement and some don't. Some companies give the highest packages but some don't. Many give 1.2lacs per year package as they are hiring Freshers but later on salaries can be increased according to your performance but mostly commerce and art sides get more placements
I have heard that the placement opportunities are great here and the candidates are offered 6 digit salaries in the first year of being a graduate itself. Placement opportunities are given to the students in their final year and after a round of selection and interviews, the deserving candidates are selected.
Our college doesn't provide placement for undergraduates but excellent placements are offered for post-graduate. DU itself is a very good and renowned University hence its fame helos the students to get good placements My aim after completing my undergraduate is to do post-graduation
The placement cell of the college is very much active. The placement package is quite good. But it depends much on the qualification of the candidate that how's s/he has performed. Otherwise, college placement is all good as the reputation enjoyed by the college is attentive. Many alma matters are very much famous, which make internship companies and placement companies fall for Hansraj college. So in literal terms, college placement is no less than others. ( As per many seniors, the average package goes like 3-4 lakh per annum to 7 -9 lakhs per annum). It may rise high, depending on the qualification of student and level of the company.
LSR has an active Placement Cell, the highlight of the college. It brings internship opportunities and job offers for its students. It is headed by 5 coordinators, 2 sub-coordinators, a Research & Training Head and a Treasurer, who are supported by 31 department representatives, 25 members and 11 core team members. LSR brings in internship opportunities for the first, second and third-year students including summer internship programs for the second and third years. Bank of America, HUL, Puma and Citibank have recruited interns. In the academic year 2019-20, 100 companies visited the campus to offer jobs to students of which 110 were recruited. Industry giants like McKinsey & Company, Bain & Company, LEK Consulting, Accenture, Gartner, FTI Consulting, Citibank and EY Parthenon were invited. Despite the economic slump due to COVID-19, the highest package offered was INR 30 LPA and the average package was INR 9.4 LPA.
The placement of the college is very good from the 2nd semester you become eligible for campus placement. There are 20-30 companies who visited for the interview and the lowest package is 5-6 lakhs and the maximum package is 25-30 lakhs. There are 80% of the students got their placement in their college time and earn many more from that. I want to go for civil services after my graduation.
Placements are good but for students of commerce, mathematics or computer sciences. But for my course that is botany there are not good job offers atleast for the graduate students. Mostly student prefers to undergo masters after graduation. But if you want a job you can get that through placement cell but they dont pay well. Deloitte, Accenture, TCS, etc many renowned companies as well as startup companies offer jobs.
It is the only College in Delhi University which provide physical and health education. Only UGC recognised College to provide bsc in physical education. It is affordable for all types of students as it's a govt College and tuition fee is not too much.
At that time I was facing some health issues as this college is nearer to me comparatively to other so I opted for it. Also the college is surrounded by lots of plants and trees so you feel absolutely fresh all the time. Brings positivity.
