College Infrastructure
Our college is well equipped with all laboratory facilities, libraries and a common room for various indoor games and cultural activities. An auditorium for all events and workshops. Overall the college is well maintained and quite adequate.
Academics
I am currently pursuing Bsc in Environmental science honors and I am quite satisfied with the curriculum that we follow. The syllabus is updated and well constructed. We get opportunities to attend seminars which to a large extent helps us to comprehend our subjects better.
Placements
I have very little idea regarding the placement infrastructure so I better not remark about that. But what I do know is that many manyors does get jobs abroad and some crack the national level entrance examinations.
Value-for-money
Asutosh College being a government college is extremely affordable compared to other institutions. Our department fees is slightly higher than others because of the lab facilities but it's totally worth it.
Campus Life
It has the best campus life. There are various events which takes place in and out campus. The seniors are extremely supportive and is always ready to lend a helping hand in your need. The teachers are always ready to help you out in any difficulties. It has a healthy atmosphere overall. Asutosh college gives you a college life to cheer for your entire life.

Asutosh College is one the most reputed college in Kolkata. If you want to secure education in a culturally enriched place then this college is sure a winner.

College Infrastructure
The infrastructure isn't great. It's located on GT road so the campus isn't big like other colleges. But it's in the main road, has all important shops nearby so it's good for students. We get Xerox shops, lots of places to eat nearby besides good modes of transportation like buses and autos.
Academics
I don't really know about the education and academic quality as a whole but BA English Honours department is really great. We have good teachers who have a lot of experience and they are very helpful and kind. Attending classes is always fun because the knowledge they impart isn't restricted to our syllabus.
Placements
I don't have any idea about placements because we get our degrees first then apply for jobs so. We have to get our terminal semester exams and at the end of six semesters, we get the average of results of all semesters.
Value-for-money
My college fees per year is approximately 6k so it's very very cheap as compared to other institutions. Since it's a government college, the fees is minimal and affordable
Campus Life
The seniors are very helpful and exceptionally polite. The faculty looks after the students and helps them out in times of need. We also have an anti ragging cell so nothing of that sort happens in our college.
Anything Else
If you are looking for securing a good education at a culturally enriched place with minimum fees, Asutosh College is just the place for you.

Our college has got all the necessary infrastructures. And well equipped laboratories too. Even the tools and instruments are also well set. Very well furnished and air conditioned laboratories. With proper guidance.

I am studying masters in geography, year 2020. Our department has 11 to 12 highly educated and doctorate professors. We are also being guided by the teachers from main university. Everyone, each and every one guides very well.

It has got high placement quality, as many goes abroad and even do not face difficulty in getting jobs and stuffs. Many students get elible for the NET and SET EXAMINATIONS. They all gets qualified...

Money is worth. Because we are guided in a very good manner. In our department the fees structure is a bit high cause we have got practicals too and even we need to go to trips for field work and stuffs like that.
Campus Life
Very good campus. Very eco friendly and a huge spacious campus. It has many buildings and a portion of hajra more has been occupied by only asutosh college campus. It is very same and there are also medical rooms at the ground floor for emergencies.

College Infrastructure
Considering the time I studied in, the facilitiess and equipment were quite up to date. It had a proper classroom and amenities needed to run a graduation course. The classroom was clean, spacious, and well maintained. We had a sports room containing, indoor games, such as Table Tennis, Chess, Carrom, and an outdoor facility to play volley ball. The canteen was clean too, with good spacing and sitting arrangements and the cost was reasonable.
Academics
I was persuing my graduation in Ecoomics. The professors were qualified and from reputed institutions of around the world. They wrote books on same subjects that were published and admired. I still believe, on hindsight that the caurriculam should have been in line with industry requirements. The courses were theoretical and had very less scope for applying practically in real life or can be used as use case scenarios.
Placements
I was not quite fortunate to study in an institution that offered placement assistance. We had to search for placements on our own. It was not a professional course where organizations flock at the campus for hiring. I can not say how many from my batch actually found an employment after passing out.
Value-for-money
The cost was 12000 per year. It is worth studying a course as you get a degree recognized worldwide. More than a degree, it teaches true knowledge and not just a certificate.
Campus Life
College life is the best time of your life. You do whatever you want to do, no boundaries, life with no strings attached. lots of friends and dreams in your eyes. I really enjoyed the campus life.
Anything Else
The college is the last educational or academic institution before you go out to face the real life. So the foundations important. The foundation is built in the institutions you study in and the architects are your teachers. I am fortunate to have studied in an institution where I got the right kind of knowledge to become a professional and a decent human being.

College Infrastructure
It is one of the oldest colleges in the city that is known for its Mathematics, English and Political Science department. The classrooms are decent amd the whole campus is clean. It has undergone a lot of changes over the years. The college is fully Wi-Fi enabled and the library has a 4mbps broadband internet conenction. There is a seminar hall, auditorium, library. games facilities and separate hostels for both boys and girls.
Academics
I was a student of Political Science. It is one of the most revered departments here as one of the present MPs of Bengal and film star, Mimi Chakraborty, is also an alumni of this college. The quality of teaching is almost at par with some of the more renowned colleges of the city like St Xaviers and Presidency University. the
Placements
The college has a reasonably good placement cell that organizes job fairs from time-to-time. These job fairs are attended by companies like TCS, CTS, Satyam ComputersWipro BPO et al. It is a great progress on the part of the college as earlier no recruiters used to come here.
Value-for-money
When you compare the cost of studying in this college with other prominent colleges of the city, Asutosh college is a sure winner. Each and every student gets his/hers money's worth. The infrastructure is good and the teaching is world class.
Campus Life
There is an adda zone in the college which, in popular parlance, is known as the Rock. This is where college romances blossom, the whiz kids continue to scribble on their books and students share notes and gossips. It has a healthy atmosphere.
Anything Else
If you are looking to study any subject out of English, Mathematics or Political Science then Asutosh College is your best bet.

College Infrastructure
The BBA Department of Asutosh is way different than any other courses of the college. It has fully air conditioned rooms and clean classes. There is a separate library for BBA course students which has all the books needed during the curriculum.
Academics
Some of the teachers of the faculty are really good but some are very course oriented and do not indulge into extra practical knowledge session. Being a government college it has a little exemption from curriculum and studies than the other private colleges yet one cannot simply score good without studying and attending the classes regularly. The course is under Calcutta University and follows CBCS system.
Placements
In my year the seniors have not received any placement or any campassing although there are few internship chances during second and third year. I will update the review if any company comes for campassing or any student gets a job from the placement cell.
Value-for-money
Although it is a government college yet the BBA Department runs on the students fees so the course cost around 50k per year which is at par to some private colleges. The course is valuable and the college is has a really good record in academics.
Campus Life
The seniors in the college are really good. The teachers are very reachable and answer to every query. Although the college has limited events for management yet we can participate in any management fest and the seniors and teachers really help for preparation.

The department provided us with all the necessary study material, lab equipment and guidance to excel at the yearly exams. The lab was better than most I have seen since then, we had a proper hands-on electronic design experience which I heard was quite missing in other departments providing the same course.
Academics
The new curriculum has further improved and has a similar get up to the engineering course of the alias, however, this in turn would make students opt more towards research rather than the technical subject it is. The professors have always guided us with a smile and it has been a rather enlightening journey.
Placements
Most of the students ended up shifting into IT, BPOs and Banking. The former can be viable as some companies do come for interviews but students generally go for a Masters before selecting a job. Some people even study at the college which offers upsc, psc courses.
Value-for-money
As it is an unsponsored course at this college, the fees are alot. However, as good as the lab and steady funding for books and instruments, you will not regret paying some money to study here.
Campus Life
I think apart from studies, college is a time to learn, not only how many books you must study but also how to study effectively. But college is about making life long friendships, apart from the books please have a good time. The course load is pretty heavy but that doesnt mean you have to study all the time. Take some time out and interact with people. Asutosh has a heartbeat, by that I mean the college grounds, the teashops and especially the conversations in and around.

College Infrastructure
when it comes to infrastructure Asutosh college ranks high up in the list. classrooms are spacious and well equipped with audio systems. there are plenty of water purifiers present in each flooring to provide students with fresh clean clean water. washrooms are clean and regular maintenance is carried out for proper use. laboratories are well equipped with state of the art facilities. WiFi is well distributed across the campus.
Academics
academically Asutosh college holds a name since its time of inception. being well equipped with wonderful faculty members, it holds a reputation well established when it comes to academics. curriculum is according to the latest UGC norms and updated regularly. teaching is not only confined through books, as professors look forward to mentor the students in global knowledge sphere. henceforth, apart from academics, students are prepared for further endeavors as well.
Placements
being a government degree college placement for arts section was not upto the mark. rather it prepares us for further studies rather than getting along the lines of career after graduation. however there are companies which do visit the college, providing jobs for desk operations and client handling.
Value-for-money
perks of being a government college the annual fees are meager. a few thousands to be precise. which makes it affordable to all sections of people. moreover scholarships of various kinds provides much more economical help to students hailing from very poor economical background. the education provided in return is exceptionally good and indeed the value for money ranks pretty high.
Campus Life
apart from academics, there are events throughout the year which indulges students into various activities. the cultural aspects of the students are explored out as well as the conduct of annual sports and football tourneys provide opportunities for students to indulge into physical activities as well. a balanced curriculum between education and extra co-curricular activities helps in getting the best out of a student.

College Infrastructure
The infrastructure of Asutosh College is nice but could do with an improvement, especially the bathrooms and classrooms. The laboratories are pretty decent and well equipped. The food is okay, but could do with an improvement as well. The football team is great and organizes football tournaments regularly. There is wifi but no smart boards. The wifi fails at times.
Academics
I studied B. A honors in English in Asutosh as I've a deep interest in language. The quality is very good and the teachers put in a lot of hard work and make the students ready for next levels of education. The curriculum has just been updated, but the batch of 2019 had to study in the old syllabus. The syllabus ended with the 2019 batch, after a 16 year period. The degree of B. A fetches not many high paying jobs so further studies are advised.
Placements
There hasn't been a lot od placements from the English department. As no company accepts B. A graduates. Most students have had to pursue other courses like MBA or apply for jobs. And the ones who wanted to continued studying had to do post graduate. There isn't sufficient data about pay scale or aaverage salary.
Value-for-money
The yearly fees was around 3.5k including miscellaneous charges. This is a pretty decent rate for an undergraduate degree so the value for money is definitely there. It doesn't charge too much and neither does it have too many hidden costs. So it's a pocket friendly college.
Campus Life
I have not seen much co curricular activities in the college in the 3 years spent there. There was a common room where people engaged in indoor games and an annual football tournament. The college office has a lot of staff and people are helpful. It's situated at Hazra More and is easily accessible. There are fire extinguishers and wide stair cases to handle emergencies.
Anything Else
The college needs to improve its infrastructure, and co curricular activities and recreational activities for students.

Asutosh College is located in the center of Hazra in Kolkata. It is a good place to study... Teachers are very friendly , helpful and co-operative...The staff faculty is quite better than most of the colleges and management is also up to the marks... But the only problem is regarding unions. Overall it is a good college.

The pro is that it is a government college with much fewer fees with everyone can afford. Don't talk about the infrastructure, it is that bad. The placement cell is also less active and only a few secure job. The college although has average faculty. opportunities regarding ECA are optimum , but opportunities for studies are not that much.

I must say the college is quite good with the good quality of teaching. Assignments and group projects are given to explore students creativity and thinking. There are two exams per year. Class timings are from 11 AM to 5 PM As it is a government college which is under Calcutta University , the annual fee is not so much and is around INR 30000/- per year. No such great placements are provided in this college. Salary provided to the students are not worth, so the students prefer to do the master degree to get a good job. The teachers make sure that no class is missed and the entire syllabus is covered. The teachers are very co-operative and are always willing to solve any queries that the students have. They give notes and handouts from various books and recommends the books that we can prepare our answers from. Asutosh College is often associated with bad politics, but as a student of the college, I can proudly say that if you want to stay away from politics, no one will ever bother you. Classes are not suspended and regular classes go on.
