Infrastructure: The university ensures conducive learning improvement with free Wi-Fi, well-designed classrooms and labs, and a comprehensive library. Engaging sports and games are organized, enhancing the overall experience for all students in my college.

The course was tailored to industry needs, providing a relevant and manageable academic experience despite efforts in preparing for semester exams in the university.

Teachers are friendly and supportive.
Placements: Placement at JNU College is good. Companies like D. E. Shaw, Deloitte USI, Ernst & Young, McKinsey & Company, Boston Consulting Group, Accenture, Genpact Risk Consulting LLP, Brain Capability Network, and TriVista, but also forged new relations with companies like Bank of America, Sattva Consulting, and Mother Dairy, have visited 135+ companies and offered an average of INR 6.02 LPA. Placement session 2020–21 was a great success. During this session, a total of 131 students from diverse academic backgrounds were placed via cell. Roughly 5–7% of students get placement. I plan to prepare for the civil service exam.
Infrastructure: For the new students, you will first receive DORMATIORY from the university administration. And after some months, you will receive hostels according to your rank. In your room, you will receive a bed, a chair and a table, which are basic needs for a student. The availability of electricity and water is 24 hours a day, and a water cooler is available in all hostels and in winter for hot water. All hostels have their own mess with a fresh meal and at the end of every month, you will also receive a special dinner. The quality of the food is very good. Every day you will be served a new meal and every month the menu of the mess is changed and you will enjoy a good and healthy meal daily. The mess bill for every month is between INR 2,000 and INR 3,000. And about the hostel, in one room, two students can live easily. It is a very decent room. If we go outside the university area, the cost of a room is INR 8,000–10,000 per month in Munirka and Buddha Vihar. And the hostel fee is nominal—120 rupees per year.
Faculty: The teachers were very helpful. They provided us with great lessons and the practical classes were very helpful. I want solid-state physics here and hope to be a teacher in the near future. There are two special streams for masters in physics: astrophysics and solid-state physics. I opted for the second one. I hope I can be a good teacher in the near future with all the experience I gathered from my college days.

Really good campus which is close to nature.
Placements: Really beautiful and historical infrastructure. Great faculty and students. There is no placement cell for the foreign language students at JNU, but one of our professors created a WhatsApp group where he kept updating us about the off-campus recruiters. Companies such as Accenture and Amazon were the most frequent. The average package varies from INR 4-5 lakhs per annum. None of the internships are or were provided. The role of content reviewer in the companies is recruited.
Infrastructure: The wifi is accessible on the entire campus, the classes are good and regularly cleaned, and the library is the best. The hostels are not good, though, and the minimal fee structure makes them affordable. The canteens are good too. The sports facilities are also up to par.
Faculty: The faculty has the best, highly qualified teachers; the teaching styles are friendly, and they make you speak and write the foreign language very well. The course makes the student industry-ready, but no internships are provided. The exams are quite easy, with a minimum of 4 CGPA required to pass.
Other: The best thing about the course is that you have a lot of ways to learn the language, and you also have a lot of free time to pursue other things. I would like some internships and more scholarship guidance in my course. The campus keeps on hosting many functions and conferences, many sports events, and other extracurricular programmes.

Life in JNU and its Pros and Cons.
Placements: In language courses, you can't expect high placements. However, in JNU, if you want placement, you will get placed easily in multinational companies with an average package around 6 LPA. Amazon and other companies do visit the campus. However, many students opt for higher education, but you can easily get into companies.
Infrastructure: We have schools in the academic complex. So, for language, we have 2 schools of language and one language lab complex. All classrooms are fully AC, and Wi-Fi is available everywhere in the campus. Hostel has 2-person rooms. All hostel rooms have one fan, and each hostel has a water cooler fitted. The mess food is honestly very good.
Faculty: The faculty members are very experienced and highly qualified. They are also very helpful. The course curriculum is excellent as you are studying in the number 1 university. The semester exams are not that tough. If you give time to your subjects daily, then you will clearly excel.
Other: I have always been interested in learning languages, and JNU is the best and most affordable place for this. So, I joined JNU and am currently learning German.

The college has a large campus for their students.
Placements: In fact, this college provides better placement for the students, but the more hard work a student puts in, the higher placements they can get, and all those placements are being provided on behalf of foreign companies, with approximately more than INR 15–25 lacs. Students can get that opportunity, which can build their lives. If they see that, because there are various opportunities for the job, one can get a good placement with a better performance in this course. If someone is unable to get a placement, then they can start their own business with the intense ability to make apps, website and so on.
Infrastructure: The size of the rooms is average with the basic necessities provided in them, i.e., a bed, a cupboard, a fan, a table, and a chair. Each hostel has its own mess with a menu that is very diverse. The quality of the food is ever-changing. One can avail of hostel facilities at a cheap rate of about INR 3000 a year. If one wants to rent a room, the nearest places are Munirka and Vasant Kunj. Hostel Fee: INR 3000 per year.
Faculty: I graduated with a BCA so I am doing a masters in computer application. The JNU School of System Science faculty is good and the MCA course has 58 students. The ratio between teacher and students is 12:58. The teaching methods of our teachers are the best; they are teaching us like Ph.D. holders. There are four semesters in the MCA course and it's not difficult to pass the exam. Class size: 66 The course costs INR 4000 per year.
