Campus Life :

Life at the campus of GLS University is probably the best I could have gotten in Ahmedabad. The festivals are usually conducted at the end of the year. The participation in the festivals is worth the hard work put in. The library is well-equipped with the latest books for syllabus and novels as well. All the classrooms are air conditioned. There are different clubs for students to take part in and stay as active and competitive as possible.

Course Curriculum Overview :

I chose Bachelors of Commerce in the MR Parikh Institute of Commerce. Most of the faculties hold a doctorate degree in this university. The teaching is up to the mark. Passing in exams completely depends upon your learning abilities. The exams are conducted timely without any hassle. The faculties are easy to approach to for any doubt or assistance.

Placement Experience :

I am still in my final year of graduation, I have no clue of how the placements work. But as far as I've heard, the placements of GLS University are quite okay.
