        The teachers are very friendly to students. They also teach very well. And the university is following tradition of Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore. The traditions are very well. The programmes of the university is unique. The teacher student relationship also very good. Bad aspects are thae the university is situated very far to capital i.e Kolkata. So communication problem is there. Admission to the course is based on merit list which is based on marks of 12th board exam. Admission date is on July of every year.

        First of all to be precise, it is an University seeded by the Great Poet Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore. It was the best place near my hometown offering the subjects I wanted to persue. What I liked the most is the campus, the buildings, the environment any every other considering factor. I really enjoy the lifestyle and the exposure of being a student of this University. And also the Education codt and fee structure is very nominal.
