JNU: Where everybody gets a chance!

Fees -

The fee structure is extremely cheap and affordable. During admission, the fee for the first semester has to be paid which is Rs. 286, for second semester Rs. 108, for third and fourth semester Rs. 120/per semester.

Course Curriculum -

The structure of the course is quite different from all the other equivalent options I had. Moreover, the coursework really mends your mind to focus on reading a lot of research work. It is also very inspiring in terms of engaging with research yourself. The schedule for the week is not very hectic and leaves the students with enough time to engage in brain-jogging, self-studies as well as extra-curricular activities.

MA in JNU

Fees -

The fee structure is very feasible. Infact people from very poor families too can come and pursue higher education here. Fee for one semester is around ?268. Also, in hostel, including fooding and lodging we don't have to pay more than ?3500 per month (as of now, i.e, 24-11-2019)

Course Curriculum -

The course curriculum is not as good as I had expected. Before this I was in BHU, there it was much better than it is here. In this semester I learnt nothing new and I feel stuck. There are four papers, we have two sessional in each (of 25-25 marks) and then final exam of 50 marks thus making it 100. In some papers we have to write term papers and in some we have to sit for tests.

Jawahar Lal Nehru University

Fees -

JNU is the most affordable institution of India and charges almost negligible fees. It charges around 300 rupees per semester ( Indian students). However, Fee structure for International students is different and they are charged more.

Course Curriculum -

It's brilliant. We read subjects which are not taught in any other university. Our assessment is also done through diverse and enriching ways like research paper and snap tests. There are more than enough libraries and reading rooms , with special libraries for visually impaired students.

Jawaharlal Nehru University:Rethinking Education

Fees -

jnu is home to students from varied social and economic background hence the fees structure is very affordable. average semester fees for an undergraduate and masters course is 110/- while that of Mphil-PhD is around 180/-. my first-year fees for masters in political studies was 108/-, no other fees are demanded from students, rather students from a humble background with an annual family income of less than 1.5lakh avail merit cum means scholarship. various other scholarships are given by departments on the basis of merit. the university itself pays for research and field trips of students at all levels.

Course Curriculum -

When it comes to education JNU is considered a dream, a project, a fantastic experiment-a public university reconciling excellence and equality in a sociopolitical aware environment. the course structure for the various programs in UG, PG, MPhil, Ph.D. demands extensive reading, analysis, and writing work. the general course work across all programs includes mid-semester exams, weekly paper writing, paper presentations, tutorials( Group discussions-based on oxford university study pattern), participation in weekly seminars and conferences. the course work in MPhil-PhD is of one year followed by individual research work. a distinct feature of JNU is interdisciplinary studies.at masters level,...

Magic which is real

Fees -

The fee here is very nominal. The concept here is to be inclusive even tot he poorest people. Apart from entrance fee we just have to pay 100-200 per semester for college and 2000-3000 for mess bill. Expect for this there is no other cost which would trouble students. It is a student friendly structure

Course Curriculum -

The course here is good. Really good. It is more of theoretical than INA by other colleges like the Delhi school of economics. But the courses here are really enjoyable and we find some of the best and finest professors teaching here. I really enjoyed listening to them. In first year we had all 4 compulsory in first two semesters. And in atleast two semesters we could chose all subjects
