I chose St. Andrews Institute of technology and management gurugram because it is very close to my house so I don’t have to worry about commuting very far and pay for rent. Also the infratsructure and education is very good and affordable.
College management system is good ,but can be better.The new college campus will lead to more scope for students so overall it is good experience in this college.
The 25% to 90% scholarship on tuition fees (based on 12th percentage.) To be frank, the scholarship was a HUGE factor in my decision. Very few universities offer such generous scholarship amount.I am very thankful to the counsolors
