Choosing a college is the most vital decision of a student’s life. Students studying in high school always have dreams of getting into a particular college according to their preferences. At this moment all the board results are being published and a bunch of students is ready to start their own college life. One fact remains the same that when you have to choose a college under Delhi University, it is not at all an easy job to be done. There would be a bunch of advisers who would advise you to go for Kirori Mal and others would often advise you to take admission in Ramjas. For me personally both the colleges had similar importance. While a student chooses a college, he or she always has to experience the dilemma of ‘course vs college’. So students start searching over the internet, they talk to seniors of the DU colleges and try to gather as much information as possible to get into a college which would be best for him or her. Here are some 5 quick tips which would help you to select the right college under Delhi University for yourself.
Check on the quality of the course or subject you are taking up in that college:
All the DU colleges are a specialist in some subjects whereas they are just mediocre in some of the subjects. So it is very important that while you are choosing a college for yourself you should research well on the quality of the course that you are going to pursue from that college. You can take the example of Kirori Mal College where they consist of an excellent department of English, while Political Science in the same college is just mediocre.
Ensure that the college has Good faculty members for your subject:
When you start your course in college you should have a proper faculty to guide you properly. Unlike schools where you had to study a number of subjects, over here you are dealing with a particular subject. You have to gain in-depth knowledge about that subject. So it is very important you have good teachers to impart you with great knowledge and wisdom. You have to refer to a number of books on one single subject which can only be guided by a good professor of that subject. After college when you would go for higher studies you would require recommendation letters for which faculty’s credentials is essential. Plus a good professor would make you love the subject and obviously you would score good marks!
The existing societies of the college:
College societies are the main factor which develops one’s personality. When a student is exposed to these societies, he or she is made to encounter real life challenges, to seek for new opportunities and can help a student to build his or her character. These societies encourage students to pursue their talents in extra curriculum activities. While participating in these societal events they learn the art of time management, develop their problem-solving abilities and improve their leadership skills. They keep encountering new people which help them to grow personally and professionally. So, while choosing a college you should check on its societies which would give you the greatest exposure to the other DU colleges.
Colleges which gives the best placement offers:
You should have all the fun in your college life but you should also have a perfect career plan for the future. To have a successful career you should take admission in such a college which would offer you good placements in good companies. You should research well while you take admission and find out if your dream company comes to that college for placement or not.
The overall reputation of the college:
If your college is not reputed enough then it would not offer good placements. A college which is in high demand always attracts a variety of sponsors, recruiters, and opportunities. The brand name and the reputation of the college would help you to develop your career in the future. So be very careful while deciding upon your college.
