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
