I choose this course because it has a wide variety of knowledge including most of the practical knowledge and the foreign internship and placement it provides. It does maintain a good faculty and student ratio. For 700 students in a batch they provide over 100 faculties. It has 5-6 teachers for every subject in the course . And it is taught by different tutors including tutors from different branches of the institution . The qualifications of the faculty are very much highly rated . Most of them are from H.M background and are qualified with the degree of MSc and M.a in hospitality . Many teachers are qualified with West level 3 which is the most prestigious award in spirits and wines. Some of the teachers are also alumni of the college so it is a huge advantage for the students . The term exams are timed from 6 months . Each semester has 2 term exams including theory and practical . So 3 years to 6 term exams. The term exam was not so difficult if one follows the class regularly.
I was offered Placement in Angsana Balaclava in Mauritius as a Bartender . The Indian companies which offer internships are Taj group, Heritage hotels like Uday villas, JW Marriott , Accor Hotels, and Foreign internship in countries like USA , Mauritius. Seychelles , France , UAE . The stipends depend on the property and country . The maximum stipend is offered in United States , followed by France , Mauritius , UAE.

The fee structure States as 1,98,000 for the course of B.S.C per year . With this one also get B.A in tourism degree from IGNOU University . For opting for the UWL degree from the University of West London in the third year one has to pay more 55000 . There is no such hike policy and hidden cost in the fee structure but it is still on the expensive side per year compared to other colleges . The scholarship one get is during the admission time that depends on the HS marks of the student . The basic 15% scholarship is given if the student score above 65% in HS . The financial assistance the college provides to students every year a free wine tour and scotch whiskey tour to the best selected 10 students across all the branches .

Most of the students apply for off-campus placements and the students who are highly skilled and have maintained a good impression throughout their academics definitely get a job from the companies who are hiring students based on their merit and the rest of the students opt for higher studies.
I loved the syllabus henceforth I wanted to dig into this course. 1:5 is the faculty: student ratio. Most of the teachers are highly qualified, including PhD as well as M.Sc. The teaching process is very lucrative followed by some lucid practical illustrations.
This course microbiology is itself a very knowledgable subject and also has bright prospects for future jobs and career perspectives. our curriculum has 1:5 faculty: student ratio which is very good as each student gets special attention. Most of the teachers possess doctorate degree and their teaching pattern is very easy to understand.
Positive remarks is essential for my university.Excellent faculty overall of the institution. The faculties are very students friendly and they are very supportive. Although the system is very good. They taught the students very well. And the students also catch the knowledge.
I'll be all positive about college. Being from a middle class family of Jamshedpur, it was really great to study there. Maybe I found a new myself there because of all the love and affection I received from everyone in college. Our principal and teachers were so kind and loved us so much. I really don't have an idea about what people think about college, but it was really home for me. It's a great atmosphere for someone moving out of home for the first time. Everyone in college will be very happy to have you unless you don't want to be so.
