College Infrastructure
All the classrooms have been equipped with smart board projectors and the students have access to iPads in the college library. The students can also get access to the college wifi facilities. Air conditioner facilities are available to the B.commerce students.
Academics
I’ve take up BA Sociology. The faculty in this department is amazing(I can’t tell about all the teachers in the department but most of them are really encouraging and smart)and the curriculum is updated almost yearly keeping in mind the current developments in this study feild.
Placements
The placement cell in the arts department isn’t as great as the B.com department of the college. The B.com students’ highest salary package offered is 20.5 LPA and lowest is about 3.5 LPA. The college is very supportive with the students placement as they regularly put up updates about it in the notice board and the college website.
Value-for-money
The BA honours courses in this college costs about 29-39 thousand per year but the students are charges extra if they wish to take up journalism or film studies as their ancillary (extra subject other than honours) subject.
Campus Life
The college is situated in the heart of the city (Park Street). The campus isn’t too big but it’s not too confined either. The college is also just adjacent to the Park Street police station. The college has a football court, basketball court and volleyball court too.
Anything Else
Students can also indulge in extra curricular activities like debates, quizzes, sports events, marketing competitions etc.

The college is equipped with the latest technology and the lab consists of almost every chemical one needs to work with. We have a central research facility equipped with latest technology to help the students gain first hand experience in research.
Academics
i am a second year student currently pursuing chemistry honours. It is one of the best place for pursuing the subject . The faculty is outstanding and we get a great deal of help from them . we have the latest curriculum and we do not require and private coachings also as the whole syllabus is completed in college itself.
Placements
very nice placements . we have our very own placement cell which help the students get placement. But most of the students pursue higher studies instead of looking for job offers. All of us have a mindset to pursue research and we are prepared for that .
Value-for-money
For chemistry honours, the cost in not much and many scholarships are also available for the students.
Campus Life
The students can indulge in a lot of activities. The green benches are there for gossips as well as intellectual talks.

I am a B.Com(Hons) Graduate from St. Xavier's College,Kolkata.. The organisation does not need any introduction or criticism as such.. It is an honour and pride to be a part of such an esteem organisation.. But it is to be kept in mind to be always responsible,honest and disciplined towards the organisation, the family and the society at large..

Bcom (morning) course of St. Xavier's College,Kolkata is not very costly and is truly reasonable when one compares it to the return and the learning that one gains over time..
Campus Life
The organisation does not only limit itself to its course curriculum but also focuses on the extra curriculum for its students.. it provides multiple opportunities and scope for its students to participate in and grow ....
Anything Else
There's a saying: "Once A Xaverian is always a Xaverian ".. It takes a lot to be a part of such a prestigious organisation but the return is even much more that what it takes to be so....

The college has a history of more than 100 years and it provides the students with the same environment which the past students have lived in. The overall infrastructure in on a good side yet some renovations are required in the classrooms.
Academics
I am currently studying Bcom Honours. The quality of teaching is good. The curriculum is updated and it includes all the recent developments in the field of Finance. No I dont think this makes a student job ready yet atleast it provides a platform for the same.
Placements
Big companies do visit the premises but still the number of students they provide jobs are on the lower side. The placements does not only depend upon the companies that visit but the number of students they finally place.
Value-for-money
Yes the college fees is quite low and the value of money is quite good. The fees had been increased a little last year but yet the fees is comparitively low. The college provides good education at low price.
Campus Life
College life is good. Students get a good platform to express themselves. There are many societies which the students can be a part of and also the teachers are quite supportive. The location is safe and it can handle emergencies quite well
Anything Else
My experience as a student has been great. I got to learn a lot from the ever competitive environment. Teachers are good and supportive. The curriculum is good. The environment is best and students can learn a lot.

College Infrastructure
Fantastic And classic buildings stand tall on which you can be proud of. They speak nothing but legacy since more than a century. Classrooms, library, halls and auditoriums are well equipped and is enough for on class seminars and workshops. The surroundings are spacious and we'll maintained with waste management systems.
Academics
I believe the college has the best academic records when it comes to academics, ranging from NIRF rankings to India Today rankings the college has pulled it through. The syllabus is absolutely updated and the whole curriculum + the competitive activities make you job ready.
Placements
Placements have been really good because a lot of companies visit our campus for recruitment. Companies like Ernest and Young, PwC, Deloitte come at our campus for the recruitment. The Highest salary package that was offered was by DE Shaw which offered around 20 Lakhs per annum. The college and the placement cell both are very supportive
Value-for-money
The fees for the academic session I am studying now is around 120000 per year which is a bit much when seen from a middle class perspective. But if you see from the long term perspective and about your career the college is more benificial and it offers a lot more than it charges. The seminars , the workshops, the competitions, the placements,etc and the list never ends.
Campus Life
The campus life is no less than a premier B-School here. You will find students studying or completing their assignments at the green benches, empty classrooms, rushing off to classes, engaged in club activities, preparing for competitions,etc. The fellow students there are highy supportive and helps you. The staffs are decent.
Anything Else
Go for it if you get a chance. It's a heavenly experience.

Best in class which is more than enough in terms of infrastructure. The college is 160 years old and the Roman architecture stands with pride. The classrooms are big and technically advanced. There are smart boards in classrooms. Cyber rooms, finance labs will help you over the years while pursuing the course.
Academics
I am studying MCom in Finance and Accounting here. The professors here are talented and they clear your any kind of doubts. The curriculum is well with the time updated and includes all the practical case studies/real life instances in the curriculum. The projects conducted are comprehensive and seminars/workshops make you job ready.
Placements
The placements are good enough for anyone who has the hunger for opportunities. Students do get placed in some companies or the other. The packages are like 3-4 Lacs per Annum to 19 Lacs per Annum depending upon the company you choose. Companies likes Deloitte, EY, KPMG, Mu Sigma, PwC, TCS, Cognizant,etc come at our college.
Value-for-money
I am paying around 120000 per year to the college for our Masters course. The BCom has the same structure I believe. Yes, the kind of opportunities the college offers starting from Seminars, worshops to ON and Off field training is highly commendable and lives upto our expectations.
Campus Life
The college has 3 Canteens, 1 Cyber room, 2 green benches and 2 grounds as soon as you enter the college. People are quite engaged in their activities like clubs, seminars, cell work, assignment,etc and are in rush. The campus never sleeps.

The whole curriculum is updated by autonomous body and is well ahead of time.

St. Xavier's College, Kolkata has all the basic and necessary facilities and equipment. It has very good science laboratory will all modern and latest apparatus. Classrooms are kept neat and tidy and all have a projector and screen which is used for teaching. The campus is very huge and there is a good canteen too! Wifi connection is available but the password is mostly not shared with the students.
Academics
I graduated from St. Xavier's in B.Sc Chemistry because i liked the way the course was structured and I genuinely had a liking for the subject from the beginning of college. The academics which were taught here were very easy at the beginning level and slowly as time progressed, it gets more complex and challenging. Most of the courses do make you job ready depending on the job you ultimately take up.
Placements
During my time as a student, there were huge giant pharmaceutical companies which had come to college to employ the students. However, I had not taken that opportunity since i had other plans to complete my M.Sc too. Most of my friends took the chance and are doing well even today. The college was very supportive and encouraged us to take risks and chances as these are one in a lifetime opportunities at times.
Value-for-money
St. Xavier's College, Kolkata at that time was a government aided college, so it used to receive funds from the government. Hence, our fees were extremely cheap at that time. It was definetely worth my money because this college gave me the platform which i guess no other college could give me. I could participate in the various college festivals that were held and that boosted my confidence to do things even better.
Campus Life
The campus life of the college is truly amazing. The students who come here to study are very friendly and they come from diverse backgrounds which opens your eyes to learn about various cultures and traditions and how to respect them. The teachers as well as the support-staff are really kind and they are always there to support you and giude you in and as well as out of the classroom or matters other than academics too!
Anything Else
This college is definitely worth your time, effort, money etc. The extracurricular activities and sports activities conductyed here are numerous and there is something for everyone to learn. Most of the students are very competitive and help you out in times of need. totally worth it.

The infrastructural facilities are more than enough. Most of the classrooms have projectors and are spacious. The labs are as per requirements for all departments. Guess what, we even have a Finance lab for the commerce students. Yes, there are hostels separate for boys and girls. The canteen is hygienic. The grounds are clean and well maintained.

One of the best colleges ever when it comes to academics. Students have reached heights from here. Professors are highly highly qualified and clear our doubts when asked. The curriculum is well updated and since th college is autonomous it takes no time to update syllabus. Yes, the curriculum makes you job ready.
Placements
The opportunities provided by the college in terms of placements are enough. One can opt to enter the Corporate world even right after graduation in campus placements. Companies like KPMG, EY, PWC, Deloitte US, Deloitte India, Accenture, TCS,etc come to our campus. The average salary by Big 4s is around 3-6 LPA CTC. The highest was 20 LPA CTC.. DE Shaw...
Value-for-money
The course fee is a bit much but I feel like it's worth it. I pay fees around 25000-30000 per quarter... The endless opportunities the college offers is what makes it legitimate. The workshops, seminars, exams, career oriented courses,etc gives us an edge.
Campus Life
The campus life very very busy. The students engage is various societies like Xavier's commerce society for BCom, Xavier's Management Society for BBA, etc... There are societies department wise as well. There is EDC, Enactus as well. The staffs are friendly and college premises are safe, sound, clean and tidy.
Anything Else
The only thing here is that one has to take that extra step to grab the opportunities here. People are highly competitive here.

College Infrastructure
The campus is approx 160 years old which has the oldest infrastructure. The college is trying to make sure that necessary infrastructure, facilities and equipment are being made available to students. The living spaces and classrooms are not very much up to date and the canteen is completely unhygienic.
Academics
I'm currently pursuing BMS Hons. The professors doesn't use modern techniques to implement the course and most of them doesn't have sufficient knowledge to teach a particular subject. Most of the professors make sures that the curriculum is properly updated and taught in a practical way.
Placements
There are few big top companies whom our college approaches for placements. The toppers usually get placed but mediocre students find themselves in a tough situation when it comes to getting placed. The college tries their level best to make sure everyone gets placed. The highest package is of approx 20L which goes to students of BSc Economics Honours, BCom and BMS students.
Value-for-money
The cost per year is approx ₹70,000-₹1,00,000. The money is completely worth it compared to the fee structure of other colleges. The college has always maintained the gap between the Rich and poor when it comes to deciding the fee structure.

The campus life in college is not what you get to see in other colleges but the college campus has its own vibes and different places for students to spend their free time. The campus is completely safe and it can definitely handle emergencies.

College Infrastructure
Right the up to mark infrastructure, there is a place called green benches where students study, meet,etc. The classrooms are well equipped, although not all classrooms have ACs. There are auditoriums for conferences, meetings,etc. The WiFi is bifurcated for students and facilities. The space is clean and tidy.
Academics
college excels in academics. The professors are highly articulated and helpful. The exam controller adminstration and the curriculum administration is avid as well as active while updating the syllabus The course does make you employable. I am doing my Masters here and I did my BCom morning from here.
Placements
Every year, about 25-30 different companies come to our campus. Big four, Goodricke , Cognizant, Wipro, Accenture,etc are some of the few regular recruiters. The average package which I observe is around 4-6 Lacs per annum.
Value-for-money
The fees sums aroud 80000 per year and I believe every penny spent here is worthwhile, the kind of exposure the college gives whether here in Kolkata or outside is of unprecedented level. Alot goes behind getting such exposure, starting from academic activities to non academics activities.
Campus Life
The Campus life is breathtaking, alot is going on at the same time as soon as you enter the campus, the respective societies conduct meetings, students meet in canteen, rushing off to Library,etc. The staffs are friendly out there, they are welcoming, also you get to meet people from different backgrounds.
Anything Else
Once in a lifetime experience. Do take full advantage of the part of this college. Also, never forget to wear you ID cards and bypass the dress codes, haha! It's not less than a school.

College Infrastructure
There is one Main auditorium, RK hall and a Fr. Xavier auditorium where all the workshops, seminars,etc take place. Each and every society/cell has been allocated a different cabin to carry out their Operations. Classrooms are equipped with projectors and Central library has reading rooms. The campus has WiFi facilities but the student has to get permission.
Academics
I am studying MCom apparently because I want to pursue lecturership after this. The professors are highly educated and capable. They are also helping. There is also a NET and SET guidance center if anyone is willing to prepare for lecturership. The syllabus is upto the mark.
Placements
Since I am seeking for lecturership, I am not that interested in in placements. But I am aware that companies like Big 4, Swiss Re, Accenture, ICICI, etc come to our college regularly for recruitment. The package offer is moderately decent.
Value-for-money
I have almost spent 4 years in this college since my graduation, every penny I paid, I received it in the form of education, facilities, time spent there, the people I met there, the guidance I recieved there, the time I spent there in reading room of the library. I can never be less thankful to the college for such an amazing experience.
Campus Life
Absolutely amazing! You meet so many people from different parts of the country with different experiences studying different subjects here in college. Attending seminars, workshops, events, fest, conferences, etc is one heaven of the experience. The campus never sleeps!
Anything Else
Utilizes the college, do not remain static here if you take admission.

College Infrastructure
Absolutely, it does. All the classrooms have projectors and some have smart boards as well. My favorite part is the Cyber lab in the campus. The Central library has E-Resource facilities, reading rooms and plenty of books. There's a separate grounds/partitions for basketball, hockey and football/cricket. The Canteen resides at the heart of the college and is pretty hygienic. There are auditoriums where seminars and workshops are held. The campus is vibrant.
Academics
I have studied BCom here and now I am pursuing my Masters from here itself. The professors are supportive and you find them in the staffroom atleast 45 mins before the class starts, they are available to clear your doubts personally. When GST was implemented, our college updated the tax syllabus faster than the other universities/colleges around. So, this proves the updation part is up to the mark. The college has societies where you learn a lot. Also, it makes you job ready.
Placements
Companies like Futures First, PwC, KPMG, EY, Deloitte, ReleaseMYad, Goodricke tea, DE Shaw, etc are regular employers. You can also find ICICI, Accenture Strategy division recruiting from our college at times. The highest salary in 2019 offered was by DE Shaw ( CTC: 20.5 Lacs PA) to UG students. Big 4 companies offer CTC like 3-6 Lacs PA depending on profile. I am unaware about the official latest average salary details but students seem satisfied with what placement cell and college offers.
Value-for-money
The BCom/MCom course fee is like 25000-35000 per quarter. The college offers a lot beside just the academics, opportunities are endless here. If you are able to grab it all, the Value for money you get is incredible.
Campus Life
The Campus life is LIVELY. As soon as you enter the campus, you will find students discussing something in the green benches area, the societies people getting engaged in their own work, some playing sports around and some playing TT, Chess in the TT room. Professors rushing at their own rooms, students rushing to complete their assignments and highly motivated people around.
Anything Else
If you wish to take full advantage of this college, try to be active and participate in extra curricular. The college offers a lot beside the academics.

COLLEGE INFRASTRUCTURE ARE REALLY GOOD AND OUTSTANDING. THERE ARE SMART LABS AND CLASSROOMS. COLLEGE PROVIDE FREE WIFI TO ALL THE STUDENTS. WE HAVE ALSO A GOOD WELL MAINTAINED LIBRARY WHICH IS VERY HELPFUL TO STUDENTS.
Academics
I AM STUDYING B.SC MATHEMATICS HERE. TEACHERS ARE VERY HELPFUL AND KNOWLEDGEABLE . YOU CAN VISIT THEM FOR YOUR DOUBTS .WE ALSO HAVE A VERY UPDATED SYLLABUS, WHICH WILL HELP YOU CRACK COMPETITIVE EXAMINATIONS NATION WIDE.
Placements
Usually b.sc students opt for higher education rather than going for placement. But you can still be placed in a company. Company like Microsoft, Fiitjee hire students. Salary is average around 3 lpa.
Value-for-money
We have 4 quaterly feee a year and it will cost around 35k a year. Overall course fee wil be around 1lakh for 3 years. It is little costly for b.sc students comparing to other colleges. There is a little chance you get a scholarship.
Campus Life
Campus life is average. It is a Jesuit institution. College is highly restricted about discipline. There is some dress code like boys cannot wear round neck t-shirt and girls cannot wear sleeveless tshirt ot ripped jeans . Annual cultural fest is average. College location is great.
Anything Else
If you want to read in a good college may be it will feel like school for some then you are welcome. Must remember you have to follow lots of rules .

Yes, yes and yes. Our college is really well equipped with regards to these criterion. Sufficient funds are also channeled to keep the institution in top shape. Hostels are well maintained and the food is hygienic
Academics
I am studying mathematics honours. The quality of teaching is quite high compared to other institutions. There is quite a bit of pressure with regards to time vs syllabus, but teachers do a commendable job.
Placements
Placement is not quite my forte as bsc students usually don't go for placements immediately after graduation. But as I have heard from some contemporaries, the placements are decent. Nothing too good or bad
Value-for-money
40k per year. Yes dit was worth it, provided the level of education we were getting coupled with the services provided by the college. The condo Nations would hurt those who were absent a lot but that is just a tool to promote attendance
Campus Life
The best features are the discipline and orderly manner in which the college conducts it's business. The location is safe and the support staff are helpful when it concerns them. But, sometimes this discipline suffocates people with unnecessary restrictions
