ACADEMICS & FACULTY:
  • It has been a wonderful experience in this red brick beautiful building called MIRANDA. The teachers are so supporting and also dedicated towards their duties and responsibilities. Mainly I love the lab classes of this college , the labs are taken so seriously . Their is a different personality developed in me since I moved to this college. The college always encourages the girls and supports feminism.

ACADEMICS & FACULTY:

The college, recognised under the University of Delhi, strictly follows the curriculum offered under the University guidelines. Nonetheless, the college tries it\'s best to suit the needs of students to adjust the lectures on different slots. Also, the remarkable faculty tries it\'s best to imbibe the course with some good lessons for everyday well being. The best part of being in the college is its very accommodating surroundings, ranging from a chaotic society practice to serenity. The infrastructure adds to the overall experience and is one of the best in Delhi University. Academically, students find it hard to score good in the different projects and they have to word extraordinarily hard to stand out. All in all, once you enter into the college, you know you have made a good decision, as it offers a combination of factors which help to deal with adulthood with flying colours

CLUBS & ASSOCIATIONS:

I was involved in social work and public speaking, all of which made me the person I am today. The societies were active and informative. The festivals gave an opportunity to do networking and have a blast.

ACADEMICS & FACULTY:

Miranda is committed to the highest standards of educational and other provision for all of us students, and encourages us to provide the Institute with thoughtful and constructive feedback towards the end of each semester.

  • I had a great time in college with my friends and professors.
  • I learnt so many things from the college.

ACADEMICS & FACULTY:
  • Miranda House has a great environment. The classes held are not just about a particular subject but also teach us how to survive in the world and face challenges of life. Yes, a lot of assignments are given but its all related to what we observe and see around us.
  • The method of teaching is a co-operative teaching method where we discuss doubts with concerned teachers in small groups. The faculty is available to us and we can easily share our problems with them because of their friendly nature.

ACADEMICS & FACULTY:
  • Academic schedule is fixed and the entire schedule comes before the commencement of semester.
  • Fixed no. of lectures and hours are allotted for each subject.
  • Best part is in the final semester students have flexibility to go for some open courses which they can even take up outside department depending upon there choice and interests.
  • In the entire semester there are three exams Minor 1, Minor 2 and Majors so that there is regular evaluation of students which makes the schedule really hectic plus there are regular lab works and projects along with surprise quizzes also.
  • Quality and teaching methodology is good. Professors focus more on research work than on theory lectures.
  • We can comfortably go to the professor with our problems and discuss it with them and they guide us in best possible way. But marks of students are totally in hands of the professor so there is a little partiality which exists.

ACADEMICS & FACULTY:
  • This course is one of the best course in the University of Delhi. My college classes begin at 8:30 A.M. and last till 4:30P.M. , with 4-5 lectures per day
  • Miranda House has a very experienced teaching faculty. Though the classes are the same humdrum and merger of books and written notes, teachers willingly give extra time in tutorials and arrange doubt sessions. Besides the academics, I was a part of the Entrepreneurship cell of Miranda house, which was a catalystic experience for me
  • Overall, Miranda house has broadened my vision, making me a more consequencial person to see a different world than the one I grew in.
CLUBS & ASSOCIATIONS:
  • The college has a society/club for every interest group. Be it sports, dramatics, arts, business, adventure, or social help
  • Every society has their annual fest to showcase their work and success to the students; along with the cultural festival of the college, where inter-college participation is on a large scale
  • Miranda House has a very diverse cultural integration, with students from all parts of the country attracting talent at a common platform. It is a great learning experience and has been an education in my personality development

ACADEMICS & FACULTY:

This semester there had been a change in the duration of classes( previously it was 55 minutes and now it is 60 min) and so it is quite tedious. And I believe our lunch break and coffee breaks which are for 20 min and 15 min respectively are too short to refresh oneself. Assignments are usually last minute rushes however am amazed at my peers\' works. There is always enough time to study before examinations so no need to worry if one have missed most of the classes or have plenty to mug up before the semester exam. Most of the well experienced senior teachers\' classes are worth attending (even if it means waking up at 7.00 on a cold winter morning).However some of the guest lecturers are quite a bore and its better to sleep through the whole lecture. Miranda House has a lot to offer in the overall development of an individual.The groups and societies of the college provides a space for one to renew their passion in art,music,dance and so on. The campus does not lack its own share of festivities and in february we have the annual college fest "tempest" followed by the fests of each of the departments. The annual fest tempest is the much awaited fest in the whole of north campus. Usually it is a three day long affair and the final day is the day where we have the music concert flanked by well known artists of the country.Life at Miranda house is an experience worth taking.


About Miranda House, Delhi University

Miranda House, residential college for women, is one of the premier Women's Institutions of Delhi University. It was founded in 1948 by the then Vice-Chancellor Sir Maurice Gwyer; its foundation stone was laid by Lady Edwina Mountbatten on March 7 in the same year. Located on the University campus, Miranda House is built in warm red brick with cool and spacious verandahs. Its original design was by the renowned architect Walter George, the college shares an architectural affinity with other colonial educational institutions of the country. In the past five decades, as the college has grown, several other buildings have been added to its original design. It is now declared a heritage building and work is on to maintain its pristine glory.

Miranda offers liberal education in humanities and science to more than 2500 students. The faculty is renowned for their meritorious profile, versatile talent and dedication to the cause of education. The college has produced women who have excelled in various professions and have contributed in numerous ways to society at large.

The college has always maintained high academic standards. What is more important is the space it has provided to the students to freely express and develop views that help them respond to changes in society. Its proximity to other campus colleges enables students to participate in the academic and cultural events that take place around it.

The college also has a hostel, which happens to be amongst the oldest residential buildings of the University. The hostel has recently been renovated under the Heritage Building Project. The hostel section is laid out in a pleasing quadrangle, with gardens paced out by bottle palms. The design allows a spacious privacy within which residents can be as they like. The dining hall is one of the assets of the college with monastic tables and benches set along a long hall. The stretch of ground curving around the hostel towards the Cafeteria has been cleared away for a beautiful lawn and a rockery extending the social attractions of the Cafeteria, particularly on sunny winter days. It has also brought out the potential of the balcony outside the student's common room as an elevated stage for cultural events.
