College Infrastructure
The college infrastructure is really great. They have spacious A.C classrooms with projectors,a large and well stacked library, swimming pool, canteen with quality veg food- a bit pricey though. They claim to be a fully wifi enabled campus but the students are not given access .
Academics
The teachers are really great here and they are very helpful. Seminars are held around the year which helps the students to know about various domains, current affairs, etc. Our curriculum is updated and includes all recent developments.
Placements
The placement was average in our year. Very few students were placed in our batch. The companies which visited our campus are Pwc, miss chase, decathlon, ewards, Indigo, etc. I am not aware about the average salary offered.
Value-for-money
The college is expensive, no doubt about that. My course fee per year was above 45k , which is a lot for an undergrad degree.

College Infrastructure
During my 3 years of graduation course, i was pleased with the infrastructure facilities that makes a peaceful environment to concentrate. Being one of the best colleges of kolkata, yatan offers basic and effective facilities to its students. The staffs always maintained the curriculum of the college, whether its the washroom or the cafeteria everything was perfectly cleaned every single days.
Academics
We have got the best faculties with great experience and better teaching ideas. Apart from the teachers, other guest members were also called for guiding us to to correct way. They provide quality education with the use of latest technology, that will encourage every student to realize her true potential.
Placements
During the last year of the courses the organization offers placements as well. The hike for the freshers were not well. However, not all the placements were good but yes, the college was very supportive.
Value-for-money
Being one of the top private college for girls, the fees were quite higher as compared to other colleges of kolkata. Approx 1.6 lakhs was invested for my course. But the facilities and the teachings were very pleasing from other colleges.
Campus Life
The campus was good. Best parts was the classrooms but the playground was quite small. As we jave to share it with the school students too.
Anything Else
Everything was well maintained until and unless i studied there. But they need to improve their placement criterias for sure

Yes our college has all the necessary infrastructure, facilities and equipment. The classrooms are much airy and includes wide area. The class benches are very much comfortable and accommodates all the students without any difficulty. We are provided with the facility of air-conditioner in every classroom.So to feel disgust and irritating during summer classes is not our concern.Being a chemistry student our lab is very much equipped with all the necessary apparatus required for our experiments.
Academics
I am pursuing chemistry hons and intend to do research work in future. Our college provides us with very well trained and student-friendly teachers whom we can approach without any hesitation. They always end up covering our syllabus on time. The syllabus as provided by the Calcutta University for the Bsc Chemistry hons students is although vast but very much important and appropriate for us. It makes us accustomed to every details which a chemist should know.
Placements
It provides placements based on our specialization in subjects and academic marks. We need to score well to get the opportunity of placement. Once placed, the salary package is very well promising and good. Top recruiting companies for Shri Shikshayatan College are PWC, Deloitte, etc
Value-for-money
It is aboslutely worth of our money. With evey facilities whether it's about education or related to the comforts of the teachers, staff and students our college has it all. The laboratories are very much up to date with all the necessary apparatus and equipments.

The campus is huge. Surrounded by the building all round it has a huge playground area in between where the assembly is held. It even has a basketball court where the students are allowed to play and even can get trained from the teachers. Our college has a swimming pool and even gym equipments are provided in our common room which is the best place to relax. Our canteen is really spacy with alot of chairs being provided for the students to sit and eat comfortably.

College Infrastructure
Our college is very well maintained. We have air conditioned classrooms, library, canteen. Libraries cover books from all fields and is spacious too. The classrooms are smart boards equipped and spacious. We have a basketball court, indoor sport room and also swimming pool that very well taken care of. In a nutshell, my college provides us with a healthy and hygienic environment with every facility possible.
Academics
I am pursuing BA English honors and our professors are highly knowledgeable and skilled. The classes are interactive. Our curriculum is updated but I guess they can do better at it. The way my professors go about in class is surely impeccable and yes it does make me job ready.
Placements
Students graduating from my college do really well because it's not just about studies, it's also an all rounder development. We graduate in a very discilpined environment. 55-60% students do get their placements from our college with a satiable salary amount. (I am still studying.)
Value-for-money
My course is of 17000 inr. Yes, I do believe that it's worth. Our college provides with an all rounder development, so definitely it's worth.
Campus Life
The students here are very friendly, whether it's your own batchmates, senior or juniors. So are our professors. We have a lot of co-curricular activities and also clubs. We have our own Scouts group who literally work for other people in times of need. The location of our college is just amazing. With streets laden with all kind of street foods, to medical facilities and even police station, we have everything right there.
Anything Else
It's an amazing experience growing here. It's truly worth. Once an Yatanite, always a Yatanite. The soul of being an Yatanite will always be in you, no matter where you go!

College Infrastructure
My college is situated in a place where you can find almost everything around it. From grocery to stationary to clothing to eateries everything. It has all the facilities. We have AC's in every classroom with smart boards. We have a library, a medical room, a sports room and a laboratory also. Although the space for sports activities is not that big and the college does not have its own hostel. They all are well maintained. But the college campus is not that big.
Academics
I am currently pursuing Bcom hons. The teaching staff are very friendly but I find the quality of teaching average. But there are few teachers who are amazing and are great teachers. Yes the curriculum is updated and implemented. But just the academics does not make us job ready.
Placements
The quality of the placement cell in our college is average. Companies like indigo, deloitte, decathalon and many others came for placement. I don't exactly know the package but it is decent. The placement process is smooth and the college is supportive.

All the books for every semester are available there. We have a small cafeteria at our campus. The food is good at the cafeteria.
Academics
My college is a part of Calcutta University. I completed my graduation in B.COM from this college. The quality of teaching is good. All faculties are very knowledgable and always ready to help. My college also offered foreign language courses as optional subjects. My college also provided foreign exchange programs to top students every year. We have a compulsory research project in the last year. My college also provided shot-term courses like Tally, ICA.. etc.
Placements
We have a placement cell for final year placements. Around 40 to 50 % of the students placed every year through campus recruitment. So, the overall placement is average. Axis Bank, TCS, ICICI Bank, Infosys.. etc came for final placements. The highest salary package was around 4 lakh per annum during my graduation.
Value-for-money
Our college is part of a public university. So, the fees are very low as compared to other colleges in Kolkata.

In terms of infrastructure shri shikshayatan has been very good. There library is well equipped with a lot of books n other materials. The laboratories are also very good n location wise also its very nice
Academics
The quality of teaching was good. I graduated in BBA hons. The teachers were very nice and also very helpful. The curriculum was upto date n also they were helpful in addressing our doubts amd queries that we had.
Placements
The placement cell wasn't good. The person in charge wasn't available mostly. Although there were few good companies that had a tie up with our college. But the facility was poor and not good as it should have been
Value-for-money
Value for money wise, shri Shikshayatan college wasn't good. There were no other activities apart from study. No events, no industry tours, no excursions, nothing. This aspects should be looked after too.
Campus Life
The campus life was amazing and the teachers were very helpful and friendly. Also the support staff were very helpful. There's a common room with a lot of indoor activities to engage in. And also a huge court to play outdoor games.
Anything Else
Overall it's a nice college but there are certain domains were some improvements are needed. Also academics wise it's good. But other events need to be more improved. But otherwise, it's good. Hope you have a great experience there.

College Infrastructure
The college has good infrastructure with the school beside it. There are lot of events happening in the college every other day. Srijan is the main event. There are also inter-college fests that it represents. It provides seminars and various courses. placement is not that good. However, they have connects with the industry but the package offered is less. Canteen services are good enough. Bcom hons has only girls section and is in the morning. Teachers are well qualified and experienced.
Academics
The curriculum is designed in a good way and the teachers are also good and experienced. You have to make a final project on your interested field at the end of three years which is evaluated for 100 marks. Teachers are helpful enough and encourage students taking up projects and opportunities in and outside the college.
Placements
Placements include companies like Indigo and IBM. They provide decent package but timings could be odd. Average package is around 3lacs. Recently I had heard of Big four companies coming to the campus for placements in US tax field. This could be a good start for the students.
Value-for-money
It was 50,000 per year including everything. The money could be said to be worth and helps one build it's personality.
Campus Life
The college ends early morning only and leaves less time to enjoy the campus life for the students. However, if one participates in the events, they get opportunities to live the campus life.
Anything Else
It is a decent college for people to go to. Curriculum and courses are good to start a career with.

From spacious ac classrooms to cafe to basketball court to swimming pool to gym..the college has it all. The living spaces are clean and food hygienic. There's free WiFi. Classrooms are well used and maintained.
Academics
The curriculum depends on University under which the college functions. Although the teaching staff is amazing and makes subject easier to grasp. They even provided tally courses to us inclusive in the curriculum.
Placements
This facility was not offered to us, the students of b.com honours after the ug course. Hence the percentage of students placed or highest salary or the average package cannot be commented upon really.
Value-for-money
Cost per year was more than INR 35,000 p.a. which increased every year. It is not worth paying such amounts for facilites which are not so necessary when you're attending a 6-10am ug course.
Campus Life
Location is extremely safe, in the heart of the city. Teachers, students and support staff are amazingly helpful and understanding.

Below average infrastructure. They share auditorium and the ground with their school under the same trustee. The WiFi never worked for us spaces are on an average clean. Libraries lack new collection. There is no sport centre
Academics
I studied bcomH. doesn't make anyone job ready. The curriculum has being going on from the ages. The marking scheme of the university remains static no matter which college you choose. They just want you to mug up things and puke it out on exams.
Placements
It's bad. I have not heard of anyone getting placed because of the college placement cell. The placement cell was very inactive. Girls got placed because of their talents and that too outside the college campus.
Value-for-money
It costed very high. I regret paying that high amount for that college. I could have done much more from the time and money that I wasted on this college. Believe me I still regret it. They only believe in admitting as much number of girls as possible.
Campus Life
There is no college campus. It's just a building and they share the small ground and auditorium with the school under the same trustee. Location is safe. Teachers have their own attitude.

Please don't choose this college. It looks fancy but you will end up wasting your parents hard earned money.

sure the infrastructure was good but it could do better .we had a canteen which was quite well maintained and the food was good. We had water coolers in every floor. Although the washrooms were quite clean in the morning it got really dirty by the end of the day .It was cleaned just once during the day.
Academics
The quality of education i am sure was better than most other colleges in kolkata but it could do better.Some of the faculties were really good and we could reach out to them as many times for any doubts and queries.
Placements
Nope ..not at all good. There is absolutely no scene of placements at all .To secure a job or an internship one has to apply for it externally as no companies visit the college for recruitment purposes.
Value-for-money
1st year in 2015 it was around 40000 which went up to 44k in 3rd year.

The course cost was very cheap considering other colleges. It was worth the money.

I did my Bcom Honours in Accounting and Finance from this college. It's a three year course. I was in the morning batch 2014-2017. The college falls under Calcutta University and the curriculum is regularly updated to match with the real world applicability.

The placement cell looks after the placement and does a good job at it. I was studying other courses too so did not apply for the placement but my friends did and we're satisfied with its placement activities.

I paid 50k approx for a year and compared to other colleges it's at standard rate. Compared to the other colleges it was worth the money
Campus Life
It has alot of activities students can engaged in. Not to forget it's annual fest Srijan. Teachers and staff are very supporting. It's in the main hub of the city and very safe.

College Infrastructure
The college is well equipped with all the necessary technologies and with Wifi. It's absolutely clean and well maintained. There's a separate team of people who look into all these matters relating to maintenance.
Academics
The teachers are quite good and help with the subject matter and provide nice notes to help the students. The teachers are well versed with economics , accountancy ,law, audit , mathematics and other subjects as and when required.
Placements
Mostly people who applied for placements were guided by HOD's in getting through the placements! Companies like PWC, Stock exchange of Kolkata were present. Students were taught how to make their CV's as well.
Value-for-money
It costs approximately 1.2 lacs for 3 years of BCOM. I think I costs too much for a bcom degree. But if you want a hassle free and good environment for 3 years with good people SSY is the place you would want to be.
Campus Life
We have a swimming pool and a common room, a canteen and everything where students Hangout. The teachers are good except SM mam who was the HOD of commerce department .She puts false allegations on several students even costing there convocation.
Anything Else
It was a nice experience except the convocation where we weren't allowed to enter the auditorium even though we were marked present due to the evil SM mam who over rode the principal's instructions and did not let us attend the convocation ceremony .

College Infrastructure
Infrastructure is not something to boast about but facilities are quite good. Full air conditioned classes ( a huge relief in summers to beat the heat of this city) . Smart boards and mics are available in every class but are not frequently used ( depends upon the teacher). There are all kinds of lab with necessary equipments. Library is well updated with latest editions of books to cater the needs of the students. Washrooms are clean,hygenic & well maintained.
Academics
I am a final year B.com (Accounting & Finance hons) student. Teaching quality is pretty decent. The curriculum is governed by Calcutta University so if we compare it with top univ. such as DU it is not at par with it . Although there have been recent changes in it but still there remains a scope for further improvement. The curriculum is not something which can make the students job ready as it does not stress on gaining practical exposure or knowledge , soft skills etc.
Placements
Cannot say much about this as I didn't sit for the placement due to some reasons. But what I know is there is a Placement Cell which provides assistance and guidance for students to sit in placements. Students got placements in companies such as PWC , SDC ,Delloite, Omnifim Solutions , Decathlon from my batch i.e. B.com hons in Accounting & Finance 2020 batch. Cannot tell about the past records.
Value-for-money
The cost of my course was around Rs50,000 per year i.e 2 semsters. It charged collectively for both of them. The fees is very economical as compared to other pvt colleges offering the same course.It is value for money as facilities like full ac class & geniune teachers with such low price is not something which is provided in all colleges.
Campus Life
The best thing about this college is its location. Located in 11 lord Sinha Rd which is 3-4 min. away from Exide bus stop and Rabindra Sadan metro 2 of the most used and convenient means of tranport in this city. Students get to participate in various intra college events and clubs like Entrepreneurship Cell, Leadership Training Scheme focusing on building their skills in such areas. Teachers are friendly and approachable.

College Infrastructure
After my 12th, i was confused to which college shall i join. I scored good in boards so i wanted to join the best college. Shri Shikshayatan was on my top list. So i thought of visiting the campus. It is a huge campus with huge ground. Classes are big in size which can easily accommodate around 150-200 studets. It has library which has all kinds of books. Computer room can accommodate many students at one go. It has swimming pool and canteen, my favorite part. There is no littering at all.
Academics
I was in Bcom Hons. I chose commerce in my 12. For bcom shri Shikshayatan is best college. It has very qualified teachers. They are more of a facilitator than a teacher. They are very friendly. The curriculum is also up to date. It helped me in my real life.
Placements
After college, i preferred to do MBA. I wanted to do MBA from a good college. And doing bcom from Shri Shikshayatan helped me in joining the best MBA college. As background does matter in MBA. College is very supportive in placement. U didn't sit for placements as i wanted to do further studies

College Infrastructure
The institution boasts a state of the art infrastructure and has air-conditioned classrooms, alongside an air-conditioned canteen, a common room with equipment of the gymnasium. The college also has a swimming pool and an open space with a basketball and a throwball court for students to cool themselves off after classes. The journalism laboratory boasts of having MAC labs and state of the art laboratories for students to give them a decent exposure.
Academics
As a student of journalism and mass communication, I must admit that the curriculum lags behind in the real world if we talk about practicality, the academicians are however not strictly disciplinarian, which is quite contrary to what the popular opinion of the institution outside, the teachers never come on time and during our semester 1 examinations in the first core course paper, we had almost 65% of the syllabus uncovered. Needless to mention, the syllabus is not at all job-market ready.
Placements
The placements in the college would be less than satisfactory and the pay package is an extremely low return with respect to the fees taken by the institution every year in the name of tuition fees and other miscellaneous fees.
Value-for-money
The fees per semester for BA Journalism and Mass Communication is around thirty thousand INR, which roughly stands to sixty thousand INR per year, with this amount of money, I really do not think the college is meeting proper teaching-learning standards when it comes to this particular course. Needless to say, the syllabus for Journalism in Calcutta University is extremely backdated.
Campus Life
There is no campus per se, all the pictures on the website are a hoax, honestly, since Shri Shikshayatan College falls under the premise of Shri Shikshayatan School and is one huge building. The support staff is extremely rude most of the time and the canteen remains closed during Saturdays, and after 3 pm, which is another huge disadvantage. There are two clubs- the Debating Club and the Bengali Literary Society which is extremely and equally inactive.

College life has been good so far. The college faculty is excellent and constructive,the infrastructure is extensive. The teachers here, tries to ingrain leadership qualities in the students by making us responsible enough to do our work and submit it on time. The seniors here, are really helpful and we can freely ask them any question if we have any queries about the college.

Our college is an A grade college. Our alumni includes Mamta Banerjee, CM of Bengal. As we stay away from our hometown so we stay in hostel which provides very good food and other facilities. Our fest is one of the most happening fest in Kolkata. Our campus has space crunch yet well maintained. Canteen provides fresh vegetarian cuisines.

The college life was pretty good.. personally didn't have much of experience as was in the morning session and perusing other professional course. The faculty is good and the college is reputed. The college also provides BA B.SC BBA & M.COM course. It doesn't have hostel facility though there are lot of p.gs available nearby. I don't have much idea about the placement guarantee of the college as is affiliated under Calcutta university.. the overall passing % of students of this college is good

A place where bonds are made not only among friends but with teachers too. The college also supports extracurricular activities on a large scale and it participates in various inter college fest an event. Apart from it, a live campus along with an amazing infrastructure and good on campus facilities, SSY is a place where girls can get an opportunity for all round development.
