4Placements4Infrastructure4Faculty4Crowd & Campus Life3Value for Money
The lab is too large, and there is good food at the canteen.
Placements: In TISS, approximately every year, more than 1000 students from each branch are placed in good companies. Our course, EPGOC, placed 102 students this year with the highest package of 13 lacs per annum and the lowest package of 2.5 lacs per annum. More than 36 students got internships from good companies.
Infrastructure: The students have facilities to use the library, but they should first make an ID card for the library. The college issues the Library ID card, Wi-Fi facilities in the college can be used limitedly by students. The classrooms are large with comfortable benches. The hostel is near the college, provides good food, and has medical facilities.
Faculty: PG is challenging for everyone. In TISS, professors are so friendly; they also teach well and joke with students. We enjoyed TISS a lot. The teaching quality is excellent. The course is relevant to PG and the syllabus is updated. They make the students industry-ready and ensure that all knowledge of the industry is given to them. The passing percentage is 82%.

M.A. in Social Work (Children & Families) - Batch of 2019

5Placements5Infrastructure5Faculty5Crowd & Campus Life5Value for Money
It's a great environment with a good location, and it offers the best in social sciences.
Placements: In the 2019 batch, TATA Trust, NGOs, HFC, and many more recruiters visited the campus. The overall placement scenario is good because students are trained to serve society, which aligns with the institute's mission. The package ranged from 10 to 15 lakhs per year. TISS does not provide stipends except for the M.A. HR program. The institute mainly focuses on the social sector and promotes new NGOs to address emergency issues. It's not designed to meet market needs but rather to contribute to societal improvement.
Infrastructure: Students are trained to react to all aspects, like social, political, emotional, educational, and environmental issues. On campus, students enjoy the annual fest named QUINTESSENCE. The college has good infrastructure and a beautiful campus. They provide research material, books, and comics from the library. There are a total of 10 hostels on campus. It's exciting to see Bollywood stars around, as many big stars' houses are visible from the campus.
Faculty: The faculty is well-rounded and engaged in national and international social work projects, keeping them up-to-date. Our course curriculum is inclusive and better than that of B-schools and IIM. The course offers many part-time and full-time projects designed to bring about positive change in society. Almost all students have successfully cleared the exams.
Other: Financial aid and 100% scholarships are provided to reserved candidates from various income groups.

I am satisfied with the college and faculty members.
Placements: 70% of the students got internships at different companies. I got into Cybertech Akola. I have no idea about placements. In our class, there are 30 students, which is the strength of the course. Faculty members are still trying to get companies for the students.
Infrastructure: Wi-Fi and classrooms are good. They don't provide hostel facilities. We are living outside for rent, but the rented room is good. We don't have labs, so we bring our own laptops. There is a medical facility available; we have a health center. For sports, we play on the ground. Students usually go there and play.
Faculty: Teachers are helpful, qualified, and knowledgeable. The course is relevant, but some students are having problems with on-the-job training, like they haven't gotten a company yet. The course will make students industry-ready. Semester exams are of average difficulty. We will pass if we study.
Other: As we are in vocational courses, we are not able to participate in college events.

M.A. in Education (Elementary) - Batch of 2019

Best institute for M.A. in Education.
Placements: Madhi Foundation, Road to Room India, MSBTE, and BATU are some of the bodies that hire most students. The given roles are senior program associate, curriculum designer, and associate content developer. The package depends on many factors, but the median was 10 to 15 Lacs per year. Many internships are provided by the college, such as ASER. Some students join government education bodies.
Infrastructure: Our college has gender-neutral hostels and regular hostels. The four-sharing and six/eight room-sharing halls have common washrooms. We can use laundry machines once a week, and water is not an issue. There are many windows for ventilation. The college campus is small, but its infrastructure is good. We have a big library on campus with many journals and research materials available there. The college has medical facilities if anyone is injured.
Faculty: For each student, a mentor is assigned for fieldwork and another for research guidance. The faculty is so approachable and friendly; they listen and give suggestions. Many faculty members are involved in big NGOs. In the curriculum, we have fieldwork every week in different organizations. Passing is not a big thing; mostly all students pass.
Other: College doesn't need any betterment.
