Good faculty and infrastructure but not very good placements.

Placements: There is no placement cell, most of the students go for Masters after completing Bachelors degree. Less than 50% students get jobs right after graduation. Even if a student gets a job it is not in a field related to the study area. The CTC can be around 1.8-2.5 Lacs. But after doing Masters the CTC will be much higher. The alumni works in companies like Zomato, Amazon, TCS etc. There is no internship assistance from the college. Though some of the students find good internship opportunities on t...

The placement opportunities in our college are not much great as there is no placement cell.

Placements: About 58% of the students were placed from our course. The average fee for our course is Rs. 20,400. There are many top recruiting companies for our course. About 21% of the students got internships from our course in Codezin Technology Solutions Private Limited. The top percentage of students from the batch got placed.

Infrastructure: The infrastructure of our college is fairly good. Our college is not built on a huge plot, but it is well designed such that space is properly used. Our college provides proper classrooms, a highly functional library and a canteen for students. Our college also has common rooms for students to sit, relax or play some board games. Loreto College provides all kinds of facilities like Wi-Fi on all the floors, laboratories for both geography and psychology and the library with daily newspapers, book...

The college is extremely professional and well-organised.

Placements: The college doesn't provide many placement opportunities, but it helps students by providing them with free courses, enrolment in coaching classes and TTC training. However, the college is trying to expand its control and opportunities for students.

Infrastructure: The college building was built in the early 1900s, which gives a spectacular impression of British architecture. It makes the college experience more beautiful. It also has many modern blocks which have well-equipped bathrooms, sports room and hostels...

Loreto College - Student life overview.

Placements: Loreto College provides undergraduate degrees to students majorly in the field of arts and economics. Recently the Masters programme for certain subjects were opened for the students. So the kind of courses offered need to be back by industry practice which is not available in the college. There are not many placement opportunities. No proper placement cell. Students need to look for summer internships by themselves. So I feel there needs to be improvement here.

Infrastructure: We had one main academic building...

The faculty and facilities at Loreto College.

Placements: Placements every year on an average is 2- 4 LPA. Last year it was 6-7 LPA ( Lacs per annum. ). This year it's 7.6-8 LPA. Red Bull company had given some students of our college the opportunity to be promoters of their drink during our fest. They would distribute free drinks and the students promoting the drink would receive a considerable amount for this job.

Infrastructure: Library is very rich in source and updated. Computer lab is good with sufficient desktops for the class. Health camps are put up in every f...
