It was a one-year long course we were the library ethics and business administration along with the code of conduct of the administration was taught. We had external and internal conducted at the end of each semester, the practical were conducted and presentations were taken thoroughly. It was a very relaxing curriculum.

Fee Structure And Facilities :

Since this was a government college so an average fee for the fun year course was approximately Rs.1500 including all the taxes and expenses. There was no hostel accommodation and travelling included in this and it would be submitted through demand draft, card payments but no cash was accepted.

Admission :

The admission was on the basis of 10+2 board examinations and I were applying to the university through their official website where their application form was available. After filling up my details I was called upon the campus and cleared the interview round and were selected for this course.
