ACADEMICS & FACULTY:
  • The class timings are ideal for students pursuing Masters. Classes start at 07:30 am and end at 12:30 pm. students have enough time to do their assignments and homework.
  • At the same time prepare for other exams simultaneously. The teachers are well versed in what they teach and they don't just ramble through the syllabus.
  • They take their time even cover extra topics outside the prescribed syllabus. Thus, they do justice to the subject that is so vast that the subject cannot be covered in the course.
  • There are 3 compulsory internal exams that have to be conducted by the teachers, in the form of a test or assignment. And an end semester exam to wind up the semester. College days are good!

 'THE ROUTES OF EDUCATION ARE BITTER BUT THE FRUIT IS SWEET' - ARISTOTLE.

Fergusson College is the parent body of the Deccan Education Society. It has been named after Sir James Fergusson. The infrastructure is largely inspired by gothic architechture, formed in 1885.

Our first day at college begins with attending lectures by enthusiactic students of various depatments with their respective subjects. Teachers are always supporting pillars throughout the day. Interactive sessions between the students and teachers are hed to solve the queries. The environment of the college is friendly and joyful. During the projects teachers are helpful and motivate us to give our best and keep positive attitude which helps us for the rest of our lives. At the end of the day its our work that defines us and not the grades, they are just numbers that no one remembers as time passes.

Recently, we visited an industry at Gharda Chemicals, Guhagar where we learnt the production of fertilizers and pesticides. Examinations are conducted semester wise by the Pune University. Our College also conducts internal exams to test the ability of students that helps for the final exams.

So far the experience at my college has been a cheerful one and I am hoping that the experience will be worth ahead as well. My college has a welcoming environment with something for every type of a student and keeps getting better everyday.
