Course Curriculum Overview :

I chose this because in kanpur it's having no.1 OPD of physiotherapy. In this faculties is good in basic terms of subjects ,like in your 1st year you would be pleased to have a best teachers ever in your life and later on it seems to be quite enough knowledgeable facilities to understand your main course subjects. The student : faculty ratio is normal level . It means you will have to keep insist yourself to learn the things and manage the topics whichever you wanna clear the doubts . Overall I would suggest you to keep indulge with teachers only so then they will give you their secret ingredient (knowledge). The faculty is of doctorate holders some of master's holder also . There is two times of exam in a year ,Half yearly in January and final exam in may -June.

Loan/ Scholarship Provisions :

There is total amount of 56,513 rupee in 1st year and there is concession of SC,ST and OBC students . There is only scholarship of govt provisional scheme states that who is financially weak can get fees of their during study of course. There is no stipend while doing Duty in OPD of self assisted by University in your 2nd ,3rd and final year . Yes the university provides 1 month clinical posting in GSVM medical college of various departments. There is neither provision of any type of job assurance nor stipend , actually you will have to do Internship from wherever you wanna do .

Placement Experience :

There is only clinical posting which is for final year students. In curriculum students should atleast achieve 50% in theory and 50 %in practical exam to pass out

College Events :

Campus is amazing. Lots of events happen throughout the year. Many clubs and societies to be part of. I was part of Gymkhana and entrepreneurship cell. Antaragni is the annual cultural fests with footfall of more than 2 lakhs. Techkriti is the annual technical fest with budget of more than 3 crore. Colleges from various parts of country come to participate in the events. Entrepreneurship Cell holds many events like pitching events, entrepreneurship summits and investor conclave throughout the year.

Course Curriculum Overview :

Faculties were top notch but few courses were outdated and required upgradations. Curriculum wise it was student centric, which let's the student choose courses which he/she wants to do and not imposing on him. There were many electives to choose from and one can choose courses from other departments as well. I took many courses from Humanity and Social Sciences department.

Campus Life :

Simply Awesome with all the state of the art technology. Fully WiFi campus, perfectly functional hostels with all amenities, gym, world class library, food courts, parks, lecture hall complex, state of the art labs, 2 sports complexes, play grounds for all major sports (centralized as well as inside hostels as well)
