There are the best faculty members and the maintenance.
Placements: Our college really has a placement history. In our batch, approximately 200 students are available, from which around 150 students got placements with a better salary package. The top salary package offered to students of our batch was 19 LPA, which is really the greatest salary package.
Infrastructure: The rooms of the hostel are good with proper aeration facilities, and the cleaning of the rooms is also best. The food served in the mess is not much good but fine for students. There is also a huge area for sports.
Faculty: The faculty members here are the best, and they conduct classes regularly. Their way of teaching lectures is really the best, which makes the study very easy, and fluency of all students will increase. The best part is that we can easily understand our entire course curriculum without any problem.
Other: I think the food served in the mess should be improved a little bit. Events are also organised in a good manner here.

A review on Nalanda University.
Placements: If reports are to be believed, students of the first batch were the only lucky ones to have this opportunity. It is also said that there were only a very few students in the first batch. As for now, it is clearly stated that there are no placement arrangements by the University. Students, who complete their course in May, have to struggle for opportunities. Although, you could get links for fellowship, research project etc. Most of the professors are really helpful and supportive but there are no placements provided.
Infrastructure: The infrastructure in all could be rated 3.5 out of 5. The students of the present are of the Interim campus which is large enough located very close to the main market of Rajgir town. All the five hostels and the Interim campus, are fully equipped with Wi-Fi but mostly don't work when students need it the most (during exams). The classrooms are good and air conditioning provided ( a big relief). The library offers ample of primary and secondary historical texts on religion, history, language, philosophy etc. and also provides access to the virtual library where you get many good books on loan and some able to be downloaded. The canteen is not very huge or fancy, but it's a decent one. The quality of food is also good, but the food at the hostel is the same like most of the other hostels in India ( personal review).
Faculty: Teachers are well-qualified, knowledgeable, agreeable, helpful and good in nature. Some teachers are not up to the mark, even after being more qualified. The teaching method used in here is, research method, which is fun and interesting. The student to teacher ratio for our batch is 5:13 respectively. The course curriculum is good as it covers many aspects of religion and philosophies in case of Buddhist study course.
Other: The tuition fee is Rs. 28,000/- per semester, the meals Rs. 18,000/- per semester, the rooms Rs. 12,500/- and Rs. 30,000/- according to your requirement. Rajgir is a beautiful place to live.
