IISER is a research oriented institute

Posted on 19 Feb' 16 by prashant
Batch of Jan. 1, 2015
It is fully research oriented course infrastructure is good, the hostels / classrooms are very good. Labs are very well equipped. Recreational facilities, viz sports/music/tv etc are all there. Teachers are usually good. Almost all are phds from foreign universities. whether it will reach global recognition or not, i can't say that. but since govt. is giving iiser the same status as its and iims, i think it would. If you join IISER, you would automatically become an INSPIRE fellow, which is a scholarship scheme for science research students. As part of the fellowship, you are eligible for a Rs80,000 scholarship per year....

Dear aspirant,


The college is very good for all the students who want to have a career in research .It is very good and a safe place for girls .



For your consideration here is the review of IISER :


If you love pure science, then IISER is best for you in India.IISER Bhopal is for those who want to go in for research in basic sciences. If you have an aptitude for academics & research, then this is a good choice.


 Facility's here are well qualified with PhDs from abroad. They are very helpful and they start from basic so that students can easily understand. They also have their teaching assistants who can solve students doubts. Slideshows, models, simulation and videos are used for teaching.


 As IISER comes under central government it has a very good infrastructure and also the campus is big. IISER has 24x7 Wi-Fi facility in classrooms, hostels and shopping complex. Classrooms here are like theatre and also document camera (projector) is used for teaching. There is a hospital with allopathy, homeopathy and ayurvedic doctors and its free of cost. The campus has multiple canteens, mess, grocery and bakery shops and a shopping complex with a restaurant. Each student is provided with a single room from 2nd year onwards, and each room has a dedicated LAN port along with other basic amenities. The campus has completed its construction phase and has grown quite a lot of green cover as well.


This campus can be called GREEN campus as it is on a hill with greenery everywhere. There are many events like Armageddon (Gaming fest), Enthuzia (annual cultural fest), Sunburn campus, TEDx, Model UN, DJ Nights etc. The nearest air port is Raja Bhoj Airport Bhopal, and the nearest railway station is Bhopal Junction. Many students in IISER get internships abroad. There are many clubs like Astronomy club, Music club, Dance club, Physics Chemistry Biology Maths Computer Science clubs.

hope this helps

good luck


I got iiser bhopal in first allotment. I have pune as second and tvm as third option . Should i float my options ?

Nikhil Pareek 4th Jul, 2019

Hello Santosh, 

IISER Bhopal is really a very good ranked college and if you have already secured a seat in such prestigious institute then there is no need to go for float option. As you have mentioned that IISER Tvm is also there as a choice for you then let me tell you that the Bhopal one is quiet better than Trivandrum one, so that might seem as a discarded option. But yes if you have chances that you can get Pune then it is worth a try as it really holds the legacy of IISERs. But yes Bhopal is no less than it. The final decision stands for you so be wise with your choice. Best of luck.  :) 


Can I get into nasa after graduation from any iiser

Karvannan sevugamurthi 27th Jun, 2019

Hi aspirant

NASA gives first preference to the American citizens. Then only comes to your opportunities based on your qualifications. If you have a PhD in your field, you have more possibilities to get a job in NASA. Many Indian people are working at NASA. They only take the most talented one from here. So be that one to get your job at NASA.

All the best.
