The university is a very well known name in my home. My elder cousin studied from this university. In fact, his elder sister studied from the same university. Therefore, I followed their steps to take up the admission and thus fill the online application for the further process.
Course Curriculum :
The course teaches us how to solve complex problems and how to come out with multiple solutions for the same problem. It consists of a practical examination of the problem and how different mathematical models have evolved over time. Also, how the models are currently working in different aspects of practical life.
There was no entrance exam for this course. I had to submit my Dutch VWO diploma to get direct admission for the course. Apart from the diploma, the university required me to have a subject of Mathematics as a mandatory subject.
Although I want to pursue my education further, the overall scenario of placements and jobs is fairly well. The companies visit our campus every year and have seen a significant rise in the number. Also, the alumni network being strong, they help/ helped seniors get placed in their organizations as well. This year a lot of students got placed and went for higher education.
I did an internship with a company that visited our campus. They required 2-3 students, and I was one of them. During the internship, they taught me how their verticals are based on different mathematical models. I used to get an amount of ? 1000 for a month.
The college observes pretty interesting events. Few of them being the Webinar Interaction Technology, ATLAS In_Sight Day, seminars on TechMed Series: NEW: Software as a medical device, Alice & Eve to name a few. Other events include conferences, paper presentations by students and professors.
The amount that I paid was close to ? 2,000. I didn't had to pay any other cost apart from my books and supplies. They got covered under ? 500. Most of the books I took it from my seniors.
I did not apply for any scholarship because I could manage my own expenses
The teachers are extremely engaged and have an open door policy. Whenever I have problems with studying or personal circumstances, I always go to the study advisor who helps me in every matter. Lecture groups are usually small and interactive. This makes learning easy and helps me to explore a lot of other aspects too.
There are no on-campus accommodations available but University does have tie-ups with local housing providers which are in the vicinity of the campus. I took up one such accommodation which provides a fridge and high-speed internet. It is a sharing room which cost me ?600 per semester. Apart from the cost, I had to submit a deposit of ?100 towards the room.
