Great faculty, good infrastucture and good placement seasons

Posted on 19 Jun' 17 by Simran Goyal

Hans Raj College campus isn’t large but has a beautiful green garden which is maintained up-to-date. There is enough parking space for two wheelers. The college building looks neat and clean and so are the classrooms. Wooden benches are comfortable and fans run all round the year.The teaching staff at Hans Raj is pretty average. Some are way qualified and have enough experience while a few of them are freshers. Students find the tax lectures extremely nice and interactive. 66% is compulsory failing which letters are sent to your dear parents. Students falling short of attendance are not allowed to give the final year exams and get a year back. students are seen from all parts of India in a healthy number. Most of them are from East India. A good amount of foreign students are also seen here.Hans Raj is definitely one of the best colleges in the North Campus, one of the reasons behind it being it’s awesome placements. Big MNC’s like Ernst & Young (E&Y), Deloitte, KPMG and many more visit the college campus and recruit students from the commerce and economic department.

Hansraj college is a place where i grew as an individual. It is a prestigious institute and recently, it is the only du college with its own heritage flag. It offers courses like bcom hons, economics hons, english hons etc. Our alumni is very active and hardworking. We have very active dance and drama society. We have other societies as well like enactus, NSS, etc. We have different kinds of sports facilities available. Our students compete and have won several competitions. Our faculty is good but more individual attention is required Infrastructure wise this college is good. Auditorium is well equipped and Canteen offers variety of food. Fests are very happening as lots of celebrities come. Our library is filled with books from different subjects. Placement cell is good as various companies visit our college for placements. In the recent years, it has improved even further. Recently a food fest was organised by students of our culinary society which was a great exposure. Our principal and teachers are very supportive and encouraging. They constantly strive so that we can become better at what we do. Our commerce faculty is very good and experienced. Also, commerce fest is very enriching and is a great learning experience There are many places to hangout nearby and north campus is always a fun place to hang out. Crowd that comes here is good. We get good exposure of the college life. I have got many opportunities to fulfil my dreams, overcome my fears and realise my full potential.

Amazing crowd, the people here are really chilled out and hardworking at the same time.Professors at our college are simply outstanding.the location is also good The nearest metro station is Vishwavidyala on the Yellow Line and is a minute walk from the main gate of the campus.

One of the best college among all colleges of du.i would surely recommend this college .but it is not easy to get admission there .you have to score good marks to get admission there specially for general category the cutoff is very high.

Loads of opportunities and things to choose from. Something or the other keeps on happening, due to which we're always engaged. Societies provide a platform to voice our interests. The loving nature of the faculty is the icing on the cake. One might not have gotten much attention from one’s teachers in the school but would surely get a lot from the faculty in this College. The faculty is par excellence and this is evident by the fact that the notes by some of these faculty members are widely circulated across the university. So far, so good!

can I get admission in hansraj college delhi for persuing b.com honours without having maths in class 12??

Shudhanshu Gupta Student Expert 19th Oct, 2019
Hello.
In Delhi University colleges you can take admission only on the basis of your class 12th merit, if you want to take admission in DU without considering your 12th marks so there is an another option,  you should go with DUET( Delhi University entrance test).
But remember Delhi University entrance test is only for some of the courses in some limited colleges of Delhi University but for bcom from hansraj college merit will be considered.
Best of luck.

Is PU regional centre Ludhiana good for law or should i go for ba (hons) at Hansraj college Delhi university ???

Mahima Student Expert 25th Jul, 2019
Hey Vanshika.
The regional centres for PU are average. It depends on what your plans for future are. If you plan to go into Judiciary or Litigation the choice of college would not matter too much. But if you wish to go for corporate sector, then you won't have much help from your colleges for any placements/ internship in case of regional centre Ludhiana. Hansraj is a really good college and you always have an option to pursue 3 year  LLB after graduation from PU or DU or any other good college. But it will take one more year. Also many people join colleges for BA etc and then attempt law entrances like CLAT, AILET etc in this way you'll have a backup option too in case things don't work out next year. So consider your future plans and then make a decision.
Best of luck
