Bachelor of Social Work - Batch of 2024
1Placements4Infrastructure4Faculty5Crowd & Campus Life5Value for Money
It is an excellent college in India.
Placements: Our college does not provide placements for UG courses. All PG courses have great placements in many leading companies. The salary package offered is 12 LPA. Top recruiting companies like SOS, etc., visit our campus. The top role offered is HR.
Infrastructure: Our college and hostel provide excellent facilities. A playground is available where students can play volleyball. An indoor sports room is available. Wi-Fi is available throughout the campus and hostel. A library is available. Computer labs are open from 8 AM to 7 PM. Our college provides average infrastructure. First aid boxes are available. A canteen and a mess are available. The mess serves food three times a day.
Faculty: Our teachers are well-qualified and helpful. The teaching quality is excellent. Non-Tamil students might find it difficult to adapt to a few staff members who teach in Tamil. The course curriculum is relevant. It prepares you to be a professional social worker. The syllabus is set after proper planning and is updated every few years based on requirements. Semester exams are average, with both theoretical and practical questions. If someone is well versed in the basics, they have a high chance of excelling in the practical question. The pass percentage is 40%.
Other: I chose this course because of my interest in it. Social work not only helps you to work but also helps you to empower and liberate society. The best thing about this course is the field work and soft skill sessions, which help you grow as a person. Our college organises two events, such as DejaVu and Sports Day. Our college celebrates many festivals like Pongal, Onam, Ethnic Day, etc.

Review of Madras School of Social Work.
Placements: I studied medical and psychiatry specialisation, in which I get any campus for my specialisation, not even one. I was very disappointed with the response I got from the placement coordinator. You can get placed in the top companies with very good packages.
Infrastructure: The infrastructure is fair. The main highlight of the infrastructure is the library, where you can find very good resources for all courses. The only negative I can say is the Wi-Fi is not so good. Other than that, I am satisfied with everything else.
Faculty: Being a medical and psychiatric social work student, after getting into the job, I had a very strong feeling that my curriculum was not up to the standards of today's practice. Compared to what I learned in my 7 months of the job, I have just learned hardly 25% through my college.
Other: The best about MPSW is the work nature and the level of growth you will acquire. Psychiatry is the best branch in which you can learn more about humans everyday. The one beautiful thing about my college is the culture among the students and friendly faculty. Compared to many colleges, MSSW's faculty members are really friendly and approachable.

Other: I chose this course due to its non-conventional teaching methodology. The best thing about the course is field immersion together with applicable theory also their boot camps are highly effective. Questa is the student council of Department of MASE- various programs are conducted that enable the student to showcase her/his skills and collaborate with various social enterprises.

Our college provides very good library facilities.
Placements: Our seniors told me that the college provides very good placements with good salary packages. Mostly every year, more than 60% of the students get placed from college.

Infrastructure: I am from the afternoon shift. The college has a very good infrastructure. Wi-Fi is available only for the laptops. The college has very good library facilities, and mostly you can get your needed books from there. Canteen is neat and well-maintained. Overall, the campus gives you a pleasant feel.

Really good college for social work students.
Placements: Placements are good here. Students will get comparatively high salary scale than that of walk in interviews. Corporates and ngo s were the most common interviewers. More than 50% of the students were places through campus. Comparing to our senior batch, our batch mates places more.
Infrastructure: Infrastructure is lil below the line. Wi-Fi is only available for laptops. Classrooms are good but shortage of classrooms are main problem. MSSW have a wide good collection of social work books in library. Library facilities are quite good. Hostel is also good and even the mess/canteen food is above average.
Faculty: Faculty members of aided department are highly skilled and qualified. They will mould the aided students of MSSW in to another level of social work. They are good in guiding students in to their desired levels. Course curriculum is also good and everything is calendar based. Nothing is procrastinated in academics. Everything is oriented well. International and national seminars will be conducted every year and it will be quite helpful for social work aspires. Field work is mail part of academics.
Other: Campus is lil crowded for their available facilities. Events and fests will be conducted with our any failure by student council selected by a presidential way of election. Rest everything is above average. Recent the college was re-accredited by A grade by NAAC.
