Various department and non-department clubs bring together ,the student-coomunity at Christ.Ethnic day is that one spectacular day at Christ.Students from diffrerent states and countries come dressed in their ethnic-wear.
There are two hostels within the campus ,one for boys and the other for girls.Food is not provided at these hostels but there are umpteen cuisine-choices at various food courts in the campus.Tasty food at reasonable cost is one big advantage of the food courts here.World-class class rooms at the newly built blocks is other attraction.For those who do not want to stay in the campus there are hundreds of PGs available in areas cloase to the college.The college-wifi is accessible on the students' laptops that are configured.
The class begins at 9:00 am and hourly attendance is taken.There are 6 hours of learning in this 9:00 am to 4:00 pm schedule.The curriculum is based on continuous evaluation and hence mugging-up lessons for exams don't really work .The greatest joy at Christ is the beatiful campus with the most-fresh air in the city of Bangalore.
1.5 Lakh is the annual fee for the MCA course.Scholarships are offered for the non-self-financing courses.And hence MCA students get scholarships only with recommendations from the department.Meritorious students are encouraged with scholarships.The student needs to first pay his first-year fee,thus booking his admission,afterwhich he is provided with documents to be submitted to banks to avail educational-loans.
Nearly 18-20 companies connect with the department for their on-campus and off-campus drives.After the placement season almost 85% of the folks get placed and most of them earn their internships along.The companies that come at the initial stage of the placement season offer the highest salary packages.
A 60% aggregate in the UG Course was the eligibility criteria for appplication,following which students were shortlisted for the initial interview.The first round consisted of an aptitude test which evaluated the communication skills and social involvement of the student.The second round was the technical interview during which technical questions were asked on candidate's favourite subjects in the under-graduation.
There is the Student Council, which consists of student representatives of each class that at least handpicked by the management. There is also the Centre for Social Action, which is the wing of Christ University that deals with charitable work. There is Ethnic Day, which is a day where everyone comes dressed in the traditional clothes of their individual culture. There are a variety of religious festivals, and ceremonies honoring members and founders of the university. Life in college is generally eventful.
I don't know how many hostels there are; I assume there are at least two. I don't know about the quality of the hostels or the fees, as I have never stayed at the hostel, nor do I know anyone who has. The PGs are usually satisfactory, and cost between 8000 and 18000 a month, depending on quality. The food in college is excellent and costs around 40 INR per meal. The infrastructure, as mentioned before, is beyond excellent.
Class starts at 9:00 AM and ends at 4:00 PM, assuming no special classes or compulsory certificate courses are taken. The quality of teaching varies from teacher to teacher, and is generally low, although there are a handful of excellent teachers. The method of teaching usually involves disseminating information, which the students are required to memorize and write down in assignments or examinations. The overall experience at Christ University was unsatisfactory; their main selling point is their infrastructure, which is beyond excellent.
The course fee was INR 60,000 INR per year. I don't know about the scholarship options, the number of students who get scholarships, or about loans.
I did an internship over the summer of 2017, at a digital marketing company called Gaboli Online Services. The companies that hired from our campus hire for roles in virtually all domains. Around 10-25% of my batch got placed in the final year. I don't know enough about my college's alumni network to comment.
The eligibility criteria for my course was passing the 12th standard or 2nd PUC and gaining a minimum of 60% in the science subjects. We filled in an application form, and then we submitted it at the university along with documents for identity and address verification. I took no entrance examination. Typically, the cutoff for our course is around 90%.
The classes for this professional course starts at 6:30 in the morning. there will 4-5 assignments and two exams for six subjects every semester.
The teachers are well versed in their respective fields. Teaching process includes interactive sessions with the students, a unique method of dealing with the subjects and concepts, practical applications of subject matter and internal continuous assessment. The students are given plenty of opportunities to develop their personality.
The learning process might get a little tedious with early morning classes but is definitely enjoyable. The curriculum is carefully designed for each year so that the student can graduate and is ready to face the real corporate world.
1'st year: Indian students sums up to Rs. 250000 and for the NRIs it is Rs. 300000.

The first batch of this professional course graduates in the year 2019. Placements start right from the fifth semester. The companies who have successfully hired a number of students (who are currently in the first year) are Deloitte, PWC, Ernst and Young, GOLDMAN SACHS with an average salary package of 4.5 lakhs per annum.
There are multiple internships available for students to try learn, explore and develop skills right from the second year of the degree.
The applications for professional courses like B.com (international finance) opens in December and based on previous years' results (cutoff - 80%) the candidates are shortlisted and are called for proceeding with the admission process.
Admission procedure for the course B.com-International finance includes three rounds. Round one, a general aptitude test which tests the candidates on accountancy, basic mathematics, general economics, business studies, English, quantitative aptitude, logic, and reasoning. Round two, Skill assessment test (SAT) which includes testing the candidate on the writing skill. Round three, a micro presentation by the candidate and followed by a personal interview where the candidate is tested on current affairs and general knowledge.
There are various socities that run in the college. There are societies for debates, quizzes, business festing, sports, etc. Sadly though, these societies don't have much autonomy in regards to how they function. There are festivals oranised at department as well as college levels, so there is always some or the other event going on in the college. Their main national fest goes by the name In-bloom and takes place in the month of February.
College has great infrastructure with lots of green areas in the campus. The classrooms are mostly very spacious (especially the ones in the new blocks). Wi-Fi connectivity is very good across the campus but you can only access limited websites using the campus Wi-FI. They have two libraires which have a lot of resource books available for the students. The college also has one of the best auditorium across all colleges in the country with excellent light and sound system. Sports fiels are not very well maintained. They also have two in-campus hostels, one for boys and one for girls, but they do not serve food to the students.
Daily routine for most courses is 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. but some courses start class at 6:30 a.m. as well. Teaching is mostly through audio visual aids. For management courses, the college tries to get working professionals to teach the students, which worls well in most cases. For me, the classes conducted by these professionals were way more engaging than those of the regular college professors. The college follows a continous evaluation system but a major stress is on the end semenster examinations. Personally, for me, academic level of the college was extremely average as major focus still remains on rote learning.
Course fee is approximately 1.5 lakhs per year. There are various types of scholarships available as well and students can even request for an installment system to pay their fee.
They have a very actibe placement cell with the option to apply for internships during the course. Most students interested in being placed mostly end up getting at least one offer. Ernst & Young is one of the major recruiters. Other companies that visit the compus include PWC, Amazon, Goldman Sachs, etc. Average placment for undergraduate management courses 3 - 3.5 lakhs.
Entrance exams and interviews are conducted across the country but due to high number of students applying recently, it is tough to get a city of your choice. All students who apply need to sit for the interview, regardless of their score in the entrance test. Entrance tests aren't very tough but have now become very competitive because of the rising popularity of the college across the country. Board exam scores are mostly irrelevant apart from the basic eligibility criteria of having at least 60%.
The university prohibits the existence of a student union. Because of which there exists a student council, the body which essentially work alongside teachers to aid in their various activities. There is a student organisation known as CSA, who are involved in street play performances, recycling and so on, in order to help the people in need. Aside from this there are various theatre clubs (AD-HOC, ZEELUS ,etc) and a choir group as well.
Life in college is comfortable. With the exception of some classrooms that resemble closets, it can be quite fun during events like Media Meet, Silhouettes(a Psychology event), Jabberwocky , etc.
There is only 1 hostel for men, and 3 for women. The hostel fees are around 10000 per month. Naturally the lane adjacent to the univeristy is filled with other kinds of accomodation, predominantly PGs. The food in a majority of them is pretty abysmal, but conditions have improved in some by the time I reached my final year. Food is provided by 5 different canteens across the main campus, and these are mostly affordable and the meals sumptuous.
There is a main library which is termed as the knowledge centre, which is quite spread out( there are 3 floors and numerous sections, even a cyber zone ). Classrooms are well-maintained and Wi-Fi has low speed. There are network issues due to signal jammers present throughout the campus.
There is plenty effort that goes into the college, however I would say that a lot of it sometimes gets wasted. The teachers are all knowledgable in their respective fields, yet some of them fail to develop a bond with the students and adopt a dictatorial regime so as to make the latter bend their will. Punishments are metted out when a student fails to turn the mobile phones off at times, and a issue which becomes a curse for various students is attendance. Christ Univeristy has a rule which states that only students with attendance percentage above 85 are qualified to move forward for the next semester; if this clause fails, a student has to sit in the library for the hours required to clear the percentage, as the exams begin. Also there is constant pressure of assigments(called CIAs) which tend to make passionate students lose focus at times. Overall, even though the knowledge metted out is substantial, some are left happy and committed to their ideals, and some grumpy and unsure of their lives.
Per year the course fee was around 1 lac and 20 thousand . Each semester had a fee of 60000 for students who were from other states .
There were students from primarily African nations and some European countries who were part of the many thousand students of the university.
Christ University has an association with the South Indian Bank (the main campus has a bank office ) because of which transactions can be done easily with the help of a smart card, which acts as a debit card as well as the identity card of the student to get attendance for events and so on.
I did an internship in my hometown Kolkata, at a company called Script Productions, where I was part of the organising team who had an event called "Calcutta Youth Meet", a fest similar to the TTIS youth fests that involved a lot of students from all across Bengal . Being a student company, there was no stipend involved.
Since my course in college was headlined by the media department, we mostly had placements from news agencies such as The Hindu, Deccan Herald, etc and some television networks such as Republic, etc . In addition to this companies like Samsung had offers for students in the advertising department.
The Alumni network has a program every year where they donate so that teenagers from impoverished families could pursue their dreams with full vigour, they also have regular meetings.
Around 30% of the people in my batch got placed from the Humanities division, according to my knowledge. This is due to the fact that a majority of students wanted to look for opportunities of their own or proceed with higher studies .
The course I opted for was a triple major in three respective subjects - Journalism, Psychology and English so that later I could pursue my Masters' in whichever direction suited my goals best. For entrance there was an interview in Kolkata where they asked me my interest towards the particular subjects concerned, and why I opted for Humanities when I was previously a Science student . They also wanted to know about whether I'd be comfortable migrating , and inquired me about my discplinary issues as well. There was no entrance examination, but the eligibility criteria required 70% in board exams of the 12th grade.
There are a lot of clubs, associations that students enroll. There is CAPS, CSW, SWO, Student Council, Srujana, NCC, NSS, Theater club, etc. Blossoms, In-Bloom, Darpan, Ethnic Day are the main festivals on campus. Life on campus is so different from the outside world that when a person loses something inside the premises can be found in Lost and Found the very next day.
There are two hostels, one for boys and the other for girls situated inside the premises of the institution. There are a lot of PGs surrounding the institution. Every block has a minimum of three to four eateries that provide food from a minimum of 30 INR to 100 INR. There are both Vegetarian and Non-Vegetarian eateries. Every hall, floor, classrooms, toilets are swept and cleaned twice a day. The institution provides free Wi-Fi to students that they can use it in their laptops. It is not just that but they provide free access to JSTOR which is full of scholarly articles and journals. Library plays a very important roles in the lives of students at Christ University.
Since the program is full time, the timings are from 9 am to 4 pm. Apart from the role of the teachers, every classroom has a projector and speakers so that the students can institution learn through audio-visual means. The university gives a different experience and exposure to every student.
This is a two year program and the first year fees were 55000INR and the second year was 45000INR. The institution offers various scholarships from academics to sports. There is a bank (South Indian Bank) inside the campus in order that deals with the bank accounts of students of Christ University.
Masters in English enables the students to go on their own to any part of the country and do an internship of their own choice with related to the program after the second-semester examinations. Every student has a faculty in charge who he/she has to report during the course of the interview through emails. A viva will be conducted to evaluate the students and this will be included as a separate course for the third semester. There will be two placement coordinators for the program and will be continuously informing the students with the offers that the companies offer. Companies like Aruba, IBM had hired students from MA in English. The maximum package that they offered was around 7 lacs per annum. Almost 60% of the class had got placed before completing their degree.
Masters in English at Christ University provides students from all programs to apply and attend the entrance exam. It is not just limited to students who pursued their Bachelor's degree in English. The admission procedure is simple and gives a complete clarity to the candidate who has applied for the program. The candidates can check the status of their application through their login details. The exam is to evaluate the candidate's comprehension and passion for the language and does not test on the candidate's knowledge of literature since the program is open to everyone. The personal interview is the most important part of the admission where the candidate is tested on various levels.
