Faculty :

We had very friendly professors who guided us in every way possible. Professor Debobrata Mukherjee was the head of the department. He was a very qualified and responsible professor. Other teachers were young and caring. All of them provided us with abundant study materials which helped us to score above 60% marks in the final exams.

Course Curriculum Overview :

The institution js dedicated to the advanced learning of Sanskrit, which is considered as one of the oldest languages on earth till date. The course is for three years which is minimum for graduation . Research as such isn't conducted on this course and laboratories aren't required too. Exams are taken at the end to the year which isn't hectic at all.

Admission :

Since it's a university, the admission fully depends on the marks scored in 10+2 examination or equivalent examination. The admission form is available in its original website which needs to be downloaded and submitted in the university after it is filled up properly. Students are shortlisted on the basis of merit list.

Placement Experience :

Our university doesn't provide placements or job opportunities as it is an university and not a private college which requires a lump sum amount of money for admission. Students can either for higher studies in their respective subject or can also do alternative courses. Though, good grades need to be maintained.
