    Students have to struggle a bit to find jobs because the stream is such that they have to do a B.ed or an M.Ed to be a teacher or a professor in some school or college. However, a lot of students join as researchers for some firms that carry out certain researches..

    As a student of P.hD, we are not really interested in the internships, the job opportunity of this college was quite decent but I had to take NEET exam as I wanted to be a professor, hence, I did not opt for the placement.

    A review on Nalanda University.

    Remarks -
    8 /10

    If reports are to be believed, students of the first batch were the only lucky ones to have this opportunity. It is also said that there were only a very few students in the first batch. As for now, it is clearly stated that there are no placement arrangements by the University. Students, who complete their course in May, have to struggle for opportunities. Although, you could get links for fellowship, research project etc. Most of the professors are really helpful and supportive but there are no placements provided.

    The fees structure was very affordable. Fees were charged for every semester. For one academic year fees were charged for two semesters. In total i had to pay a total of Rs.1,34,000 for two years of my program.

    The fees structure is very much affordable. The tuition fees is 28000 per semester. And it would cost around 1.4 lacs for 2 years which is very nominal and affordable for a master degree in India. It is worth the money paid by us
