              For the MSc biotechnology program fee was nominal since it was subsidised and sponsored by the department of Biotechnology, Government of India. The annual fee was approximately 10000, I don't remember exactly but it was not more than that. The hostel fee was also less than 5000 annually.

              Goa university department of management and studies is very good college for the student who was polish there knowledge through help of faculties who are expertise in there own field. It definitely help to grain more knowledge and improvements of skill but only major thing issue is of placement.

Also campus should be focused more and should be improve to some extent.
