College Infrastructure
The college has amazing infrastructure and all the ameneties are easily available in the college, books to refer to in the library is up to date, it also has amazing canteen and the food is really good
Academics
I have completed my BSc from college, what was really amazing is the way the course was structured and the way that the faculty promotes us to participates in various events and outings, it helps us to grow and develop a lot of skills and our personal growth
Placements
There is a placement team in the campus which is run by experienced faculty members and big companies come to hire students every year, however that was not there for science field, you need to get masters in the field that you are but it is still ok as they still help us or guide us in our careers
Value-for-money
I would rather not share the cost here as it might be different now however i have always beleived that the all the courses that you do from here has the worth and by the end when you graduate you are a completely different yet skilled individual.
Campus Life
There are many things about the college which are excellent: Campus: I loved the structures of the campus even though it is old it has been well maintained and is really beautiful, they do have various clubs and places were students can hang out and the best part is it's close to station and yes it is very safe.

College Infrastructure
The infrastructure at St. Xavier's College is very good and it has the basic facilities which are required for the smooth functioning of a college. Every classroom in college has a screen, projector, and a blackboard which are used by the faculty in teaching the students. There is a hostel on campus but it is only for boys. All the laboratories have all the modern and expensive technology with is given to students to use right in beginning of college. The wifi connection available is good too!
Academics
I am currently pursuing my BSc in Chemistry because I feel I am inclined and have a liking towards that subject. The quality of teaching is very good and all the courses are systematically structured from easy to complex over the years so that our basics can be clear in the 1st semester and then we move ahead together while the topics become more difficult, but need not worry as the professors are always there to make concepts clear. There are some topics which are relatively easy for self study
Placements
The college has a well known placement cell which has given many Xavierites their first jobs with very good packages. The placement process is very easy since the cell is very much active. The placement cell gets in touch with the students from the SY level and keeps on offering the students internships as and when companies approach the college. There are big companies which come to hire our final year students including Zilingo, ONGC, CITI Bank, Axis Bank etc with ood packages.
Value-for-money
The fees at St. Xavier's are very cheap for the aided courses that is BA and BSc which comes out to approx. 6k to 7k per academic year and the self financed courses cost around 30k per year. This is surely worth the money that we spend because the college gives us many opportunities to learn a lot more as well as to showcase our talents on various platforms in and out of college. Our teachers are always there to motivate us to take part in events, giving us the first push to excel.
Campus Life
The campus life at college is very good. Most of the students come from all over the country to study here, thus giving all the students to learn, understand and respect the various cultures and traditions that the others celebrate. All the students are very friendly to one another and it is very difficult to not make friends with people you don't even know. The teachers and support staff and is very co-operative and encouraging. The location of the college is at a very good place in SouthMumbai

The Best College Ever!

College Infrastructure
The college has some really good infrastructure and all the basic necessary facilities to run a college in the city of Mumbai. Every department has their own laboratories and can accomodate large bum of students at once, especially the physics and chemistry departments. Besides this, the college is well known for it gothic architecture all across India. There is a wifi connection available on campus and is open to all students. There is a chapel for prayer and silence and a canteen good food.
Academics
I am doing my BSc at St. Xavier's and will major in Chemistry because it is my favourite subject. I like the way the course has been structured and the faculty is very experienced while they teach the various courses. The curriculum is updated every 3 years so that the students and aware of the various discoveries and are in sync with the modern times and concepts. The examinations too are very easy if you study regularly.
Placements
There is a placement cell present of campus and is run by a very senior and experienced faculty member of college. There are some very huge cmpanies which come to campus every year to hire students. Most of the placements are for the Arts and self financed courses because it is perceived that Science students should do their Masters inorder to get placed well. So incase you are from the arts or self financed courses, be sure to get picked up by big companies if you do your bit too!
Value-for-money
My course cost me around 6000/- to 7000/- Rupees for each academic year. That is a very good deal and definitely is worth your money and as well as your time and efforts. beiing a Xavierite definitely makes you feel you are getting your money's worth because there are a lot of activities to indulge in besides the academics. there are many festicals to take part in, in and outside the college giving you a good exposure.
Campus Life
I think the best part of the college is its magnificant architecture that we are surrounded by every day of college. The students who come to Xavier's and all good students with big ambitions in various fields of their interest. Students come here from all over India to study. The teachers are always there to support us in times of confusion and difficulty. The college is located in a very prime location in South Mumbai, just a few meters away from CSMT railway station.

Best College To Study Arts...

College Infrastructure
The college has all of the necessary facilities and equipment to run a college. All the classrooms have a screen, a projector, speakers and ofcourse, benches! There are many loboratories belonging to the various departments like chemistry, geology, statistics, psychology etc and they all have all the modern facilities. There is an open wifi connection available and some good food in the canteen.
Academics
During my time as a student the college was a part of the Mumbai University so it had a good syllabus at that time and it was very easy and simple to follow. However, From what i have geard from the current students and my professors who are still present, after autonomy, the syllabus has changed drastically as the college can now focus on latest and modern discoveries rather than teaching those same old things which are outdated.
Placements
The placements during my time were outstanding. Top companies as well as start up came to hire the students. Some of them were offered some really good packages which were just not worth denying. The placement cell of the college did a very good job and is still reaching greater heights to provide the best for its students.
Value-for-money
The fees are quite reasonable for all the students as this college is a government aided college except for the self financed courses. The money that you pay is definitely worth every penny since the college gives you the roots and wings provoking you to fly.
Campus Life
Life on campus is truly amazing whether you attend the lectures or not. The 'woods' is the place every xavierite has fond memories of. You will get to see various types of students under one roof like the differently abled, the studious types, the sports people, the people inclined towards the dances and music etc. The woods alwways used to buzz with a lot of talent everyday.

The Best College Ever!

Batch of Jan. 1, 2022 | B.Sc
College Infrastructure
The infrastructure of the college is really good and worth a sight. The college has an amazing canteen with many counters like chinese, south indian, pasta, indian etc. There are 2 libraries in college, one for lending books and one particularly for reference. books from the reference library cannot be taken home. there is a photocopying centre available on campus for photocopying at cheap rates. All the laboratories of the various departments have new technology equipment. There is a chapel.
Academics
The academics at St. Xavier's College are really amazing. Since the college is syllabi autonomous, it does not follow the Mumbai University syllabus. Hence, it can mend its courses for the benefit of the students and add as well as delete topics so that the students are well informed as kept uptodate with recent discoveries which help us in the long run. The examinations are pretty simple. There are 2 internal assessments of 20 marks each and a semester paper of 60 marks.
Placements
I am not well informed about the topic of placements since i am in the first year. However from whatever I could gather from the college sources, there are huge companies which come to campus to hire the students of the final year. Some of these companies include Axis Bank, Citi Bank, Zilingo, ONGC etc. The highest package offered to a student was around 14 lakhs last year.
Value-for-money
I must say that St. Xaviers College is definitely worth your time and as well as your money. It is a college which develops you from all sides and gives you an opportunity to step out of the crowd. We Have Malhar which is our annual intercolligiate festival and is well known all across India as well as abroad thanks to our alumni located all over the globe.
Campus Life
Campus life is true the best thing ever that I have come across in Mumbai. All the students are very friendly and bond well with each other even if there we may come from different backgrounds. The teachers of most of the departments are very experienced in their fields and are always there to motivate you. the college is located at a very prime location in South Bombay. In my opinion, it can definitely handle emergencies as i have heard that i has done so in the past..
