FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES
Considering the high quality facilities and features a student received, the fee structure of the college is very less. For many courses, it is as low as Rs 40k per year. There are different policies for people from Karnataka.
The Chriat University gives utmost importance to the academic excellence of its students. But, placements and job opportunities are considerably much lower for the undergraduate students. Management and Legal departments are good at placements but the rest lag behind.
The admission process was a half day long procedure. There was three different methods of examination all conducted in the same day. An MCQ which tests the candidate's basic knowledge of the subjects, a short essay writing on a social issue as well as a life experience and an interview. The written exams were easy enough while the interviewers were very friendly. Overall, it was a very good experience.
The college covers a large area with six different buildings and many playgrounds. The hostel facilities are good but limited to few. Most students chose to live in private hostels outside the campus.
The seniors are really helpful. There is not a little of hatred or clashes between the seniors and juniors. They are very supportive and close. During the first few weeks, they had planned a good number events and parties to welcome the juniors.
The faculty of the college can be considered as the backbone of the institution. They are well experienced and humble and friendly. A large incentive to the students is that most 0f the faculty doesn't choose to interfere with the students outer-academic activities.
There is scope for all kinds of extra-curicullar activities right from sports to bird watching. The college offers two large libraries with a huge number of books. There are 3 basketball courts and one cricket, badminton, tennis, volleyball courts.
The college follows a dual semester system. That means, each year consists of two semesters. Each semester has a final exam which decides 60% of the total marks. There would be three CIAs or 'Continuous Internal Assessments' of which the second would be an exam and the other two would be activities or researches.

I personally haven't participate in any interships offered by the university, but have heard from my friends that the stipend and work experiences are decent.
