Review of SIMC Pune - Symbiosis Institute of Media & Communication.

Placements: I cannot provide the placements information as of now because I am in this college from few days. Due to the pandemic, we are having online classes from home so I cannot interact with the seniors who had their placements this year. As far as I have heard, the roles offered are in the production houses or content creating. Some of them prefer freelancing. Some students work in movies or television. Some make documentaries and others make advertising films.

Infrastructure: The institute has top-class facilities. The infrastructure of our college is one of the best in the country. Many films have been shot here. Our college is beautiful, picturesque and the best experience to live among nature. The hills feel like a home away from home. It is surrounded by people from all over the country and even some from abroad. It has people from all cultures and religions.
