Internships Opportunities :

IMCOST provides internships to students to have passed 1st year. I just passed my 1st and the day of my last exam, I got a notification of 3 internships that our teacher had shortlisted for us. Internships of our choices is welcome too. They just want the students to go out and explore the real market. They encourage internships and part times. The stipend can range from just a certificate to 6,000 rupees.

Admission :

I got admission here in 2017 as a first year BFM student. I came here when during the last date of admission. The necessary documents were submitted in the college to the principal and she herself took my interview. She looked through my result and suggested me the course that she knew would be fruitful for me. Which I really appreciate. The admission procedure was quick and without any buffering.

College Events :

The fests are given another level importance in our college as it means participation of every year from every stream. 1st year students are given the responsibilities so they can do it in their own way as first-timers. The seniors are the biggest help during fests as they guide the first year so precisely. The teachers encourage the students by going to every class to make them take part.
