I am a 2013 pass out from the Bhagwant University. So I am sure a lot of things must have changed since then. But when I was there for my B.Ed course, I had a mixed overall experience. Some of the things like teaching staff & my learning experience were good. But in terms of campus life, placement, etc. it was quite unpleasant. The university is approved by UGC and the B.Ed course it offers is certified by NCTE. So the degree is certainly valid as I have applied for both private and government jobs with this degree. But the fee is relatively high in comparison to the other government-recognized institutions. My admission process was pretty smooth. I just went to the college's administration and the staff gave me all the details. Then I just filled the admission form and submitted my complete one-year fee which included extra expenditures too. You can pay the fees in installments too.
When I did my B.Ed course from the university, it was a one-year course. The eligibility criteria I think is still the same. The admission was done on the basis of merit. No entrance exam was taken. The admission faculty asked me about whether or not I have 50-55% in my graduate or post-graduate degree. Since I had more than that, I got admission. The subjects included were significantly good. We prepared for both the theory and practical exams. The classes were supposed to start in July but got delayed & started in mid-October. Still, we managed to cover up our syllabus with the help of our teachers. The theory classes were informative. And our practical training session was for one and a half months which took place in a nearby school. The assignments in the form of lesson plans, charts, and models were given to us on the daily basis. They helped us a lot in learning how to teach and what to teach.
Great!! There are numerous faculty members in the overall university but we didn't have many faculty members for our course (hardly 4-5). Still, I would say the few who were assigned to us were good enough. They were all well qualified for the job. Though our principal was strict but was quite understanding. He also took some of our classes. One of our main faculty members was very cooperative. She helped us throughout our session both in our theory and practicals. Our head of the department also used to take our theory classes. Both of them used to accompany us to our training session. They guided us with each step. So many of my batchmates were from Kolkata thus they used to have a communication problem. Yet our teachers helped them patiently and made them feel comfortable.
Very poor. We weren't given any placement arrangement. I don't think the university had any tie-ups with any private schools. Neither were we given any knowledge for government competitive exams after the B.Ed course. Having said that, Bhagwant University is a big name in the city. So if you can get a good percentage in the final semester, any private school would take you into high consideration. And maybe now after so many years, they have introduced the placement opportunities for the B.Ed course also.
I don't have much idea about the hostel facility provided by the Bhagwant University as I was a day scholar. Also, the hostel was in the other building of the university so we didn't get to see it often. But our final semester was held in the main building and that's when we use to see it passing by. It was well built from the outside. We had one girl student in our batch who lived in the hostel so she used to tell us about the girl's hostel sometimes. According to her, the facilities were moderate enough and she liked it there. There were AC and non AC rooms available with Wi-Fi and a good mess facility.
The University consists of two buildings. One is the main campus building where other graduate and undergraduate classes used to take place. The main administrative office, labs, canteen, seminar halls, etc. were all there on the main campus. Our B.Ed course classes used to take place in another building that is about 3 more km away from the main campus. You will not get any local transportation to reach there. So it will be better for you if you have your vehicle. When I was studying there, the building was still under construction. Thus, there weren't many facilities available to us. They were no proper parking area. And one thing I used to miss was the canteen. There was a mess where they used to provide daytime meals to students who paid for the mess facility. But nothing for other students. The library was small as compared to the main library on the main campus but it was good enough. We used to get books from there to study.
Very boring. We hardly used to get out of our classes. There weren't any extracurricular activities arranged for us. All the main events used to happen on the main campus of the university where we were hardly invited. Our class had around 50-60 students from different places. But still, we managed to make our class environment fun and friendly. But yes we were invited to the farewell party that was supposed to be on the main campus. But me and my friends didn’t go because we hardly knew anybody there. So yeah overall experience of the campus life was dull.
