College Infrastructure
As a student of B.Sc. physics department of this esteemed college, I had a good experience in the laboratories, classrooms, libraries( we could access both departmental and the central library), so we had almost all the basic facilities and many ongoing developments also, many new infrastructures are developing, but whatever we had was optimal,previously we had only one canteen, but now we have two, which is better in hygiene. I have only one grievance about lack of hygiene of the ladies wasroom
Academics
My alma mater is NAAC credited A college, and also I have great respect for my college professors who have provided all of us with an atmosphere of knowledge and deep learning for achieving sheer brilliance not only academically but also in every aspects of life.
Placements
Our college mainly focusses on giving basic education to all, and encouraging students to take up further study and research oriented career. But, it also has job oriented campaigning for those interested.
Value-for-money
We had all required facilities, atleast the basic ones, it might not be hi-fi but it certainly provides essential atmosphere for academic brilliance.
Campus Life
This college has a wonderful location,with ample communication facilities, it is situated in very well known area of north kolkata.

College Infrastructure
Classrooms are well maintained and there are smartboards which are present. Wifi is also there. Canteen provides good quality food and beverages. Table tennis room is present. Books that are needed can be borrowed from library.
Academics
Course is relevant but I feel the syllabus is a bit old fashioned. To be updated as per the latest things going on in the world one needs to do extra courses. Software and simulations or languages should be taught.
Placements
Most of students generally opt for higher studies and are not much interested in placements. Among those interested , most are placed in banking sector. For those students who are placed the average salary is around 20,000 per month.

College Infrastructure
The infrastructure provided by college is great but the college hostel is average. The hostel is used by very few students, thus, less maintained. Most of the students are residents from the same city. But the college campus is well maintained.
Academics
The curriculum of the college, at present, has improved a lot. The teaching faculty is also commendable. Although the teaching staff and their techniques are enough, if a student is weak, he/she might consider taking extra tuition classes outside teh college.
Placements
The placements provided by the college aren't that upto the mark. Students who score well throughout their academic years might get selected for the jobs paying s significant amount but the average percentage of placement isn't that high.

College Infrastructure
Infrastructure is quite good ... it's very well for chemistry and physics dept. Now a days many of the rooms have become air conditioned. So we can attend the class more freely. The sports part is a bit weak but is developing soon also. We have a little but beautiful ground and lots of greenery in our campus. The total campus is very clean and hygienic
Academics
Here academic Is bo doubt just ossum. The fact is now it's the top college under cu. All dept take care of their students well, the classes are also taken good and attentively. Many students had got job directly
Placements
This college has been famous for many years for best placements. After completing graduation many get jobs from direct campussing, some also chose higher studies. but you have talent you can go for off campus placement also. Average 5-6 lakh per annum is the average scale here which is offered to thr students every year .
Value-for-money
Here the cost per semester is a little high but affordable..it's around 6000. Total fees for 3 yr graduation is at around 45k. Its not a huge amount.

College Infrastructure
Our college is equipped with infrastructure like laboratories , well stocked libraries,hostels and even smart boards making our learning easier. Our college has 2 canteens where quality of food and hygiene is ensured.
Academics
Our department has 4 professors . They make our class really interactive. They explain the graphs on the smart boards make our concept clear. Our college often conducts seminar so that students are well informed about the outside world rather only mugging up the textbook.
Placements
There is a placement cell in our college. I am not quite well informed about the packages . But I heard that many reputable companies do come and hire students based on their merit and capabilities...
Campus Life
I really enjoy my college life . There is scope for everything here. The college is very supportive about students taking part in different co cirricular activities. The college has very enthusiastic activity clubs and every year it conducts sports and even college fest , Caledonia with much pomp and grandeur

The day when I first went to fill up the form is ofcourse a memorable day. The students from different political parties (college Union) were eagerly waiting to help the fresh candidates . Yes, I was helped them. For the first time in my life, I experienced college life live. After passing a written examination and clearing interview, I managed to get admitted to my college. It was a dream come true. My college was in the heart of one of the metropolitan cities, Kolkata and was a reputed college. I was surrounded by love, friendship, dreams , enjoyment. Lets talk about education . Faculties were nice, approachable, knowledgeable. Noticeable number of students graduated with brilliant results and lucrative jobs. Placement cell is up to the mark and lots of opportunities exist. Annual college fest is ofcourse worth mentioning. Performers used to rock the show. I am grateful to my college for gifting me such a wonderful college life and a nice job

Scottish Church is one of the best colleges to pursue your UG course in general . The faculty and teaching process is very good. Though the college does no provide placement assistance or hostel facility as such, but it provides ample opportunities to interact people from different fields of life. The overall college life would be worth your effort at Scottish Church College

Scottish Church College, Kolkata University, is a slightly lesser known off-campus college but has a lot of things that keep its students satisfied. For one, it has one of the most qualified academicians in the university. Being a part of the Economics department, I have absolutely no complaints to make being in this college. The food in the canteen is great, and the infrastructure is amazing with the clean corridors and pretty, green gardens. However, the college lacks when it comes to co-curricular activities. The societies aren’t aided by the faculty a lot. The focus is primarily on academics. This leaves out on students going beyond their textbooks. Apart from that, when the textbooks are made fun, there’s not much you can complain of.

The college life in Scottish Church College is one that can one dream of. The college infrastructure is being duly upgraded to meet the trends of this present generation with the installation of a free wi-fi zone for students and the construction of a new building which is due to be completed in 2017. In Scottish Church College we have a host of the facility who is highly qualified and equally caring in imparting quality education to every student. The college was established in 1830 and since been running successfully. It is the oldest minority educational institution in India. Notable alumni of the college include Swami Vivekananda & Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose. In Scottish Church, we have 5 hostels - 2 for women and 3 for men. Our College has strictly enforced the UGC Guidelines and thus is a ragging free campus. But the only problem is here bunking classes is not a problem but failure to secure the requisite attendance leads to lose of the year.

It's a very good college, there are loads of extra curriculum, including various clubs and Christian events such as the choir and scriptures. It has a canteen that makes really great sandwiches. The college life is very enjoyable as the seniors are very helpful and the students union is worth a shot if anyone interested. It hosts one of the biggest fests in Kolkata, Caledonia, and takes part is most other fests too.

College life is good here. Infrastructure is also fine. The faculty is good. Hostels are provided to the students who need them. And there is the proper availability of good houses who welcome paying guests in the area where the college is.
