LSR, New Delhi
I always had an inclination towards English Literature which went sky rockets after finishing graduation in the same subject. I could also go for Masters but M.A. in English remained my first priority. I appeared for Delhi University's examination for M.A. English and my rank was 78 in general students.
FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES
The fee is quite feasible. M. A. ENGLISH (Hons.) for General is 17876, for PWD it is 1550 and for Foreign students it is 22890. Any additional Fee or Increase in Fee by the University, will be charged in addition to above Fee. If a student applies for withdrawal of admission, a certain quantum of fees will be deducted as per the University of Delhi rules for refund of fees on account of withdrawal of admission.
Breaking records this year in campus placement in University of Delhi's (DU) prestigious Lady Sri Ram College witnessed a whopping 29 lakh package from a management consulting company. Third year commerce student Rhea Grover got this overwhelming offer from Parthenon-EY. This is the highest package received by the college in past few years.
Delhi University has two admission criterias for M.A. English. One is direct admission and the other is through entrance test. The university releases separate lists for both of them. In order to get direct admission, a student has to have exceptionally brilliant scores in graduation mark-sheet. Anything above 65% is good.
The MA programme offered by the English Department constitutes its oldest and most extensive academic activity. On an average about 250 students are given admission to this program every year. These students are spread across the Main and the South Campuses and the Non Collegiate Women’s Educational Board. The M.A. English syllabus comprises 16 courses to be taught over 4 semesters and in 2 years.
COURSE CURRICULUM OVERVIEW
Course structure is awesome no doubts. However, I would like to mention that it is more about individual performance and a student has to be active. Spend time in Library and make as much use of resources as you can. At the end it is your own understanding of literature and subject which matters and makes a difference. As far as the course structure goes, it has no flaws at all.
Yes, many companies come for campus placement and the stipend depends on one's own caliber. It's about how active and intelligent you are. Overall experience is super amazing.
LOAN/ SCHOLARSHIP PROVISIONS
I do not have any idea about it as I have never availed any such scholarship. though I have heard that the university provides some. A large number of freeships as well as scholarships are awarded to students at LSR every year. Students who meet certain criteria of academic merit are awarded scholarships while others are awarded freeships.
