The honest review by a honest student.

Placements: I haven't heard much about the placements. Though there is a lot of talent at ASCO, I have heard of few students getting placed in corporate media houses and advertising firms. Few, on the other hand, opened their own studios. About 25% of the students get placed at Amity.

Infrastructure: The facilities at ASCO are world-class. We have an amazing studio which is one of its kind. We have seen and operated almost all the technical equipment used in this industry today. We have also got exposure to Amity Radio. Spo...

It is the best university in India.

Placements: Amity is one of the best universities in the world, and it is number 1 in India. Our college said that it provides almost 99% placements, and they provided it to me. Now, I am working with Amazon Prime Video and have made a lot of web series.

Infrastructure: The infrastructure of our college is quite good and friendly. Some of my friends used to stay in the hostel, and they say that the hostel is super friendly, neat and clean. A lot of things are provided by the university, so it is good.

Overall, Amity is the best college.

Placements: I pursued filmmaking. The placements were quite good. I got placed in Amazon Prime and Balaji Films. So from my experience, the placements are good. I would genuinely recommend others to take admission here for the best placements.

Infrastructure: I really liked the infrastructure because it has good studios, and those studios were quite big and perfect for my course. I used to love to see new things which our college used to organise in different sectors. For now, it is the best.

The infrastructure and teachers are good, but I'm dissatisfied with the placement opportunities.

Placements: Placements were very poor in our college. The value of the fee paid was not worth it. Students got internships and jobs but did not get good salary packages. As we were actually freshers, we were offered salary packages of around 2 LPA to 2.5 LPA, even for the masters course. I am not satisfied with the placements provided by our college. COVID-19 pandemic also affected jobs.
