College Infrastructure
The Bms and hospitality department have a seperate building and it's very clean, we don't have out own computer lab but we share the main building computer lab, each class has a smart board which it used for better understanding.
Academics
Our faculty for BMS is really good, they are patient and put in a lot of effort to make sure that the students understand, for some reason if any student doesn't understand they make it a point to give personal attention to that student.
Placements
I would like to believe that our college could have better placements because the placements we have are all aiming for a 9 to 5 job so if the job field could be more , it would be nice, and also when there is a job briefing, to make it brief and not extend it because the attention span of any student is very less so to probabaly keep that in mind.
Value-for-money
In the begining we had AC's and because of it nothing on the outside would disrupt the classrooms but now since our college is surrounded by 2 schools and also the auditorium, there is alot of disturbance.
Campus Life
It's good and chill but there could be more rooms because if there is any function that takes place the girls common room is used for that so if someone is not feeling to well and yet decides to come to college they can't rest anywhere if the room is being used and also they volleyball and basketballs are only given for an hour or two to play with so there should be an extension to that.
Anything Else
No, I've been in this college for the last 5 years and I'm glad I made this choice.

College Infrastructure
The college has enough amount of necessary infrastructure, facilities and equipments and are well maintained. There is a projector in each classroom. The canteen however needs to be well maintained and clean.
Academics
I am currently doing Bachelors of Commerce Accounting and Finance. The faculty and the visiting faculty are good job in teaching us. The curriculum is updated but should be updated more often as subjects like tax are changed very often
Placements
The college provides a good number of placements which usually take place in the Second year this giving us a first hand experience to work as interns in some of the esteemed companies but only a handful are finally chosen for the internship
Value-for-money
The course cost approximately 18 thousand per year and since the teaching is quite good the course makes it worth the amount we pay. The course should however be improvised each year thus making all the significant changes in practical subjects.
Campus Life
The students engage in various extra curricular activities like basketball, volleyball, carom and many more. The room is safe for all the students and many are actively involved in these activities making the campus life great

College Infrastructure
As the foundation goes back in the years, the college hasn't upgraded to the modern infrastructure yet. Compared to most colleges, it still stands at a decent place with its infrastructure and maintenance.
Academics
Has a dependent academic system as it follows the Mumbai University. The University of Mumbai thus regulates the academic structure of this college. If the college was autonomous then probably it would have been able to deliver a better structure.
Placements
A lot of efforts are put towards getting good placements. There are a lot if opportunity to enter into the professional work life but the quality of the opportunities should be looked up. Otherwise it's good.
Value-for-money
The value could have been better delivered
Campus Life
The campus is good

College Infrastructure
Library is too good for the people who are interested in reading books or also good enough to get some information as it provide you computer with wifi connection. They are also good computer lab with proper security.
Academics
Professor are excellent as they are experience in the field their teaching us. They also help us for doing various activities as their projects are more practical rather than writing way. They also guide you in what you are good in and also help to get intership or job.
Placements
College provides you placement but it's mostly focused on some courses or stream as the company which comes are not from the course which I'm doing it. But the stream like bscit or bcom and ba they have good placement for them
Value-for-money
It's more than 18k, as I feel it can be expensive for some students, but if you see the way they guide or teach you the stuff than it's worth it. You have to pay your fees by using digital platforms which is good rather than standing in the queue.
Campus Life
There are lots of activities to do in this college like fests, some sports activities, various competition,etc. also they provide you gym. There also some activities where you show your talents like dancing, singing, acting, etc. College is in safe area as it's already surrounded with 2 hospital which are just 5/10 mins nearby and there also transportation available to reach this college as soon you reach the bandra station.
Anything Else
If you really want to know more about practical rather than just reading textbook than this is best college. People who stays nearby they already know about this college. College has also got an award of best college in Mumbai in 2015/2016

College Infrastructure
The infrastructure is quite basic no facilities like smart board's or wifi that could be used by students..also no lift facilities are provided for the students which make it quite hectic for students to reach their respective classes. The computer lab also is basic no softwares like Photoshop or illustrator that are required in our course exists.
Academics
The self financed department of mass media is really good with a well experienced and skilled head of department along with a team from the industry it self who guides us with our academics keeping in mind the need for exposure to the fields and providing with suitable opportunities.
Placements
The placements are less as compared to the other colleges and hardly only 1 from every department gets selected so based on that you can understand the kind of opportunities we recieve. However the faculty for the mass media department provides a good amount of of opportunities for work and internships.
Value-for-money
I would talk about the course in particular but there are many additional charges which are levied that are of no use and has not be utilised through out the course
Campus Life
Support staff is great the gymnasium and sports room is where people spend much of their free time along with the library.

The spaces are clean , there are various books in the libraries but sometimes BA is not given a lot of attention compared to the other courses . Infrastructure of the college is okay 👌 The canteen has variety of food.
Academics
The quality of teaching is great. The professors are damn helpful but I think some particular developments in the subject should be done , it might help as the field is in demand. The studies taught might help me in my future career .
Placements
I haven’t inquired yet about the placements but I don’t think we get placed from our college after graduation. Atleast my course :) I’ve spoken to some of my seniors and they have never mentioned about the college giving us placements, I might be wrong , I’m not so sure about this.
Value-for-money
The money’s worth , I pay 7-8k per year , the money increases or decreases depending on the year.
Campus Life
There are way too many activities in our college , the campus life is really good everyone is supportive and the location is perfect and safe too. All important places are 20 mins away or 10 mins away from the college.

College Infrastructure
The college has a really big campus allowing students to socialise and at the same time, be by themselves. The washrooms, GCR, sports room, court, auditorium are always equipped with everything that’s needed and is also always clean.
Academics
It strikes a great balance between practical and theoretical knowledge allowing students to get a gist of the outside world as well. Given my course, the former has been extremely helpful for me to discover multiple pathways. The professors are from the media industry which allow greater and deeper insight for the students
Placements
Not all courses have placements and given my course, I’m not much aware of the placements that visit college for other courses. But there is a placement cell where you can gain more information about the same
Value-for-money
The same course is slightly expensive in other colleges. Moreover, it is transparent about it’s expenses.
Campus Life
It’s been the best few years of my life. The college has given me extremely fond memories and a family for lifetime thanks to Mosaic (the annual intercollegiate festival).
Anything Else
It’s one of the best colleges the city has and I would also recommend it to parents and students alike.

College Infrastructure
It has all the necessary facilities that a student would need around them to study in. The campus does include a library , a basketball court and a gymkhana.The overall campus is clean including the canteen which provides hygienic and tasty food.
Academics
I’m currently pursuing my BA in Mass Media and Communication. The quality of teaching is quite unique in St.Andrews, they not only teach what is given as per the syllabus but also bring in life experiences to class and also include us in various activities that helps us understand about a specific topic more.
Placements
Students do get placed. Placements are all based on how you portray yourself and be yourself during the interview. The college name does matter but after that it’s how you prepare and go for it which makes you earn your package.

Yes it does. It's not the best, but close. ThThe canteen is tiny but hygienic. However there are cats everywhere for some reason. The classrooms in the bms building are very clean and there is ample of light.
Academics
The quality of teaching is good enough. But I'm not sure if the teaching makes us job ready. Because most of what we learn is theotical and can't be applied in the real world. But there are additional sessions and courses offered to help us get there.
Placements
The placements given by our college are good. They put in a lot of effort to give us good placements. Many companies from various fields are invited to offer the students a chance at a placement. These companies are often MNC's that offer various facilities to the students incase a placement is acquired.
Value-for-money
My course costs about 20k per year and according to that I am definitely getting my moneys worth because our HOD ggoes out of the way to keep many sessions and stuff in general that increases our knowledge
Campus Life
Our campus, though not bad, is very tiny. However the auditorium is one of the best in the city. It is on a league of its own.
Anything Else
I've grown to love this college with all its flaws.

College has the necessary infrastructure, facilities and equipment a student should be looking for. It has its own labs, a nice library, and a gymkhana for both girls a the boys. we also have our own basketball court and a huge auditorium for cultural activities and events. The canteen I also pretty hygienic and serves the best maggi
Academics
The quality of teaching is quite up to the mark. Its interactive and engaging for both students and the teachers. The college also offers extra curricular subjects and courses for one to hone and master the skills they wish to learn.
Placements
the quality of placements are top notch and the process is quite smooth. roughly about 80-90% of the students are placed. Quite unsure about the salary package and the avg salary as it goes unannounced sometimes. The placement does a really good job for what they do.
Anything Else
its the way of life brother.

No spaces for students to rendezvous at and converse. No accessible gender neutral facilities. Classrooms have white boards and projectors. Rather traditional classroom setup. Has an Auditorium. Unhygienic canteen area and also inaccessible. Fans dont work in the canteen half the time.
Academics
I just got done with my BA EnglishLit. and Psychology. Excellent literature department professors. Mumbai university could do with better curriculums. No one studying under Mumbai university is job ready on their own.
Placements
Pretty good companies the class has managed to pair up with. Around 10% of students were placed. Mostly Finance students get placed with higher paying jobs. The process is quite straightforward and the college has assisted throughout.
Value-for-money
<5000₹ for my course. Definitely! The teaching staff is quite good along with extra curricular encouraging students, with financial backing from college to some extent.
Campus Life
No place to hang around. However sports facilities available to play. Basket ball court and volleyball court for open use. Great students, staff and non teaching staff. Great clubs and cells to join. Very safe location, residential area, also close to a hospital.
Anything Else
I've had some of the best 5 years of my life here. 10/10 would reccomend. You'll leave here with quite eventful memories.

College Infrastructure
The campus is quite spaceous. But students should be allowed to use the lift especially for the forth floor. The liabray is really good for studying. The food is also good in the canteen. It's a good college overall.
Academics
I'm currently studying bbi. N the faculty is good and approachable. N definitely what I'm studying will make me job ready in future. Some teachers are strict and some are fun. But it's all how you perform cuz that's the thing that will decide your future.
Placements
The placements offered are quite good. I'm still not a graduate so I don't really know what the process is like and how much salary is offered. But I'm a medium to my class to send updates on internships and certificate courses.
Value-for-money
I paid nearly 22,000 for my course. And I feel it's too overpriced cuz my course has almost the same syllabus as the b.com and bms have. I feel the faculty should make learning more fun by encouraging to participate in different things.
Campus Life
The campus is quite spaceous. There are plants and trees near the borders of the campus. The location is also amazing where there's not much noise.

The college has all facilities available, I.e. a big library, a gym, basketball court, etc. that is available for all students to use. The classroom are well maintained with a projector and speaker in each classroom
Academics
I’m studying BMS with a major in marketing, because I want to pursue something in the field of marketing. The teachers are highly knowledgeable about the subjects they teach. Although the syllabus is a bit outdated, but since it comes from the Mumbai University, the college can’t do anything about that.
Placements
I did not sit for placements, so I have no knowledge on the matter. But as far as I have heard, placements from St. Andrews are decent because the college has its own established placement cell that releases updates on a regular basis
Value-for-money
The course was a mere 15,000-20,000 per year. It is definitely value for money as education is one of the largest part of a family’s expenses nowadays.
Campus Life
Campus life was amazing because of the various college events and festivals that took place on a regular basis. It located in the heart of Bandra making it very accessible, and close to the railway station as well.

College Infrastructure
Decent infrastructure, not something that would stand out from other colleges. Average classrooms, however good canteen and building. There is nothing outstanding about the college infrastructure in any way.
Academics
Quality of teach is restricted to the professor's comfort zone. Will make students slog for nothing just to show that they are superior, however when explaining concepts, pretty good. Professors will give you tons of projects for minimum marks. It's almost as if you're in the industrial revolution where you had to work double shifts for minimum wages. It's mentally traumatizing.
Placements
Placements depend on availability here in this college, they don't see whether your career line matches the job, highest salary package was 5000 inr. No information is shared whether other classmates have gotten help regarding placements.
Value-for-money
26000 inr, no I didn't feel it was my money's worth but it was cheap compared to other colleges so it's okay
Campus Life
Students are only encouraged to attend lectures and nothing else. They give the false sense of encouraging extra curricular activities but in reality people who take part in that are pestered by the professors
Anything Else
As long as you strand lectures and stay off the radar in this college you are safe. The moment someone notices your presence, they make your life hell.

The college equipment is decent, the library is great if you like reading or want study material. However if you want to learn how to use design software which may be included in the syllabus the computers cannot run these programs.

The faculty at St Andrew's College is great, they are passionate about teaching the students. Most of the faculty is also from the industry, so you get first hand experience on the industry. This also varies on which course you are interested in.
Placements
Placement for various courses are available through the placement cell in the college. Although some courses like Bachelor of Mass Media lack direct placements you can approach some of the faculty who will guide you in the right direction.
Value-for-money
The college fees are dependent on what course you end up taking, but overall reasonable. The courses are split into two, the aided and non aided courses. Most of the aided courses are much cheaper compared to the non aided
Campus Life
Campus life is decent, there are fests and competitions that you can participate in and win for your college. A lot of extra-curricular activities are there quite often. The size of the campus is not big like other colleges but is adequate.

I'm currently pursuing my bachelor's degree in arts. The teachers are very supportive and they help us whenever the students need help or have to solve doubts. The teachers are all upto date on the topics they are teaching!
Placements
The placements in the college are very good. There are alot of companies that come on campus to offer jobs. The percentage of students who get placed are moderately high and the placements don't depend on which course the students are from. Anyone can apply
Value-for-money
There is value of money. As a matter of fact self-financed courses tend to pay a little more than the other courses but obviously the facilities are the same for everyone and they all get the same treatment regardless of their fees
Campus Life
Campus Life is super fun! Everyone enjoys a lot and there are also many eateries around the college. The college is located in a safe area and it can handle emergencies. As a matter of fact there are two hospitals near the college itself.
Anything Else
On a whole I really love my college! Over the past three years I've got to learn a lot and gain new experiences that I don't think I would have gained from any other college! I have also made a group of friends who are really supportive and are there for me whenever I need them!

Yes Our College has all the necessary infrastructure facilities and equipments . The classrooms Libraries clean and well maintained We don't have smart boards .. however we have a projector which is equally good . The canteen is quite spacious , however the environment there isn't inviting .

I'm currently pursuing business management studies . I feel the curriculum should be updated according to the recent trends and happenings globally . The teachers provide us with a lot of guidance and support
Placements
Haven't contacted the placement cell yet. But I do believe that they give great opportunities for placements . With contacts from graduated students ,the average salary would be ranging between 3000- 10000. Our college is very supportive .

It's is not an autonomous college, so the curriculum depends completely on the university. But the faculty is excellent. The quality of teaching is completely up to date. The faculty of our college not only make us learn the syllabus but also teach us everything about the corporate world which absolutely makes us job ready.
Placements
We've heard of many final year students getting good placements in good companies. It's difficult for first year students to answer about the quality of placements as it offered more to final year students.
Value-for-money
The money is completely worth is because in my course we are taught that well and given all the possible knowledge too. We are taught about everything that is required once we step into the corporate world which proves that you money is valued.
Campus Life
Campus Life is the best. Students as well as teachers are easily approachable. It is very safe too and it's one of the best colleges for sports. Being a student friendly campus it is very possible for us to handle any kind of emergency.
Anything Else
I'd totally suggest my college to others because we were even awarded the best college award.

My college hosts all, if not most of the infrastructure required by all courses. It does host all of the infrastructure required by my course. It isn't the latest up date but it is good enough to get the work done
Academics
In my course we deal with a lot of up to date studies. Our co-ordinator manages to get professionals from the business for our lectures which gives us a lot more in dept knowledge of our course. Which makes it easier for us .
Placements
I still have some time to get my placement but from what little I do know, our college is one with a high reputation so various companies hire our students. Many celebrities have also studied from our college.
Anything Else
The faculty and staff is very friendly and understanding, they will also go beyond their responsibilities to get the job done.

Yes, my college has most of the facilities and equipments. In classrooms we have smart boards, we have a sports centre, an auditorium, library, basketball court, football turf, we have a clean canteen that abides with health guidelines
Academics
Currently studying Psychology and History. Because I find both these subjects really interesting. Although I have more interest in Psychology only because my love for human behaviour and my love for neuropsychology. The teaching method is really great, and the portion is relatable to our present world. And yes my interest in psychology makes me job ready.
Placements
My college is known for streams in Commerce, BMS,etc so normally we have jobs related to finance, banking ,insurance,etc. But good reputated companies do offer placements to students from my college with an average salary of 15K per month for a fresher.

My course was around 10K a year and compared to other universities this was really reasonable
Campus Life
The campus was big and we would have surprise flashmobs weeks before college fest, we have a big basket ball court where we have alot of events held there. The students were mainly catholics who were really friendly. The faculty of the college is great. The location of the college lies in the Queen of the Suburbs *Bandra* where we would see a number of stars pass by in their luxurious cars. We have 2 hospitals next to our college. Overall it's been a wonderful journey in this college!

College Infrastructure
The building looks and is old. The canteen food and area is poorly maintained. Almost every classroom has a projector. Wifi is not directly available to students which is a major necessity for someone studying mass media.
Academics
I'm studying mass media because i want to get in the field of advertisement. The quality of teaching is pretty good. The teachers put in quite the effort for the benefit of students. Yes, the curriculum is updated and included recent developments in the field.
Placements
The placement cell in St Andrews in known for providing good jobs and a variety of jobs for the students studying. However the placement cell (jobs) are only made available toThird year students before they graduate.
Value-for-money
It costs around 20k. It's a decent amount for the quality for services we're provided. Although the college doesn't fund our department for various inter College fests, we chip in for the necessities and have an enjoyable time.
Campus Life
The campus isn't that big, no much place to sit and chat in the open other than the classroom, or the canteen which is always full. Many activities are organised by the college's pr team from time to time and several workshops are conducted.
Anything Else
It's a good college with a decent staff and infrastructure. It may not give you all the features you're looking for but overall, it's a lovely college.

The overall infrastructure is amazing. The spaces are cleaned from time to time. All the facilities provided by the college are top notch. Including all the events that take place in the college are very entertaining.
Academics
I'm studying Bmm since the past two years and I've recieved great exposure to my field of interest. It has been an amazing time studying and the curriculum is followed with all the rules under the university guidelines.
Placements
I am currently doing an internship that was offered by the college itself. The starting salary offered was of 5000 rs. The college is very supportive in order to reach out to the students who will be interested in it.

One of the best in Mumbai, if not the best.

College Infrastructure
My college has one of the best infrastructure as its got a huge canteen, library, Science labs, computer labs, football grounds, turf parks, a basketball ground, indoor games like table tennis, etc. The classes could improve a bit as they're slightly dull.
Academics
The teaching faculty is one of the best in Mumbai. Here at St. Andrews the teaching faculty takes time out and puts loads of efforts to make sure students do their best. The professors teach at a level that students can understand the matter clearly.
Placements
My college has a placement cell, however I did not make use of this facility. Each stream gets different job opportunities and they can apply for whichever jobs they feel are suitable for them. Many students are now working with big companies after applying through the placement cell.
Value-for-money
The course was government aided but still cost me about Rs. 8000 per year. The receipt included a few entries that were somewhat unnecessary but were a compulsion. The college could definitely improve on value for money.
Campus Life
The campus is really huge and has space to accommodate hundreds of students at the same time for events, etc. Almost all sports facilities are made available and one can never forget they're days at this college campus.
Anything Else
The best part about the college is that not only does the faculty prepare you for the exams only but also prepare you to face the world, how to apply for jobs and how to groom and speak during interviews.

College Infrastructure
My section was in the main building which requires a genuine upgradation with both facilities as well as technology. It's a pretty old college and alot of things are kind of irritating but if you are a student whose only academic centric than you are at the right place
Academics
The teachers are good and the college prioritises academics over other tangents . The teacher's are highly qualified and have appropriate specialization in their respective fields. They cater to students needs well
Placements
Companies do come but the scope of placement is 1:100 . Although it has a good reputation and a good NAAC score , companies offer very less postions resulting into majority of students not getting placed
Value-for-money
Yes the course is great although the course specifically focuses on academic apart from overall development and skill enhancement of kids which are the need of the hour . Industry ready is just not part of the curriculum
Campus Life
The students are from different backgrounds making it easier for students to mingle and get mixed with the crowd irrespective of where they come from . It has a supportive staff and workforce which always ensure students well being
Anything Else
It's a great place to be . If you think you can hustle you way ahead you can learn things that you will never be able to learn elsewhere . With proper guidence and good interaction with fellow classmates you can attain complete growth and explore who you are

It's always clean and has all the necessary infrastructure, facilities and equipment. We have projectors and speakers in our classroom connected to the internet, the learning space is always clean and hygienic
Academics
The faculty that taught us were industry experts, and hence we got insights over all our subjects. I'm studying Mass Media and the quality of teaching is very polished. The curriculum, although via the University is not updated, but my college professors made sure we learnt everything we need for the contemporary times
Placements
We have a seperate placement cell that offers us good jobs at the end of our course. We had 300+ students placed by the end of the academic year in 2019 all in good firms and corporations. The offers matched with the course
Value-for-money
The money and admission fee was reasonable. Although this is subjective. The quality of education and lectures that we were given exposure to made the money spent on it, worth it. The extra curricular activities that were held we're good too
Campus Life
We have everything in campus. A good canteen, sports related infrastructure and green environment. The best part of our college campus is that we have one of the best auditoriums in Mumbai, and a really cool basketball court
Anything Else
This college has given me the best of my 3 years. Great professors, fun activities, College festivals, good infrastructure and sweet people to have a good company. Anyone who's and Andrean would say the same

It was worth the money

Anything Else
The canteen could be done up

College Infrastructure
The college infrastructure is decent and good enough for the required purpose. The college lacks the kind of technology that is put to use by other colleges. The library is well maintained,along with the laboratories.
Academics
The specific course I studied employed fantastic teachers and visiting faculty. Although the curriculum in most cases seems outdated, the teaching staff more than made up for it with their knowledge and experience.
Placements
Some of my friends from other courses have managed to secure placements. Their experience has been satisfactory. For the course I studied, placements weren't held. I'm not aware of the packages offered.
Value-for-money
The fees were approximately 19000 rupees per year. I feel that it was worthwhile solely because of the teaching faculty.
