Should I take Admission to Autonomous college ??
The Final year Results are out !! Like every year students started asking me questions related to their career and higher education. This year, a frequently asked question by my students is “Should I take admission to FC or MIT for post graduation?”
A current trend in education is that famous colleges under Pune University are becoming autonomous and are taking freedom to design their own syllabus and way of implementing it. It’s not new concept as Bharti was the first in Pune then Symbiosis and then COEP did it. Following their footsteps now Ferguson and MIT are going on same track.
For admission it’s difficult to take a call at the moment as this is their first year. According to me those who wish to take admissions to these autonomous colleges FC or MIT should go ahead because of following points :
– Compare their syllabus with Pune University. It’s better than Pune University.
– Their placement will be same as it was due to efforts taken by the college and brand created in market.
– Another thing is because it’s their first year, they will have to give their best to prove their quality and get more admissions in future.
The only hitch is, these colleges(now Universities) may not be famous internationally or may not have world ranking like Pune University. Pune University is famous all over the world and is known as Oxford of the east.
After all Quality of education depends on how that college delivers it and it mainly depends on their teachers. I hope colleges like Ferguson and MIT will maintain their quality of education.
Last but not the least, it also depends on that student as a individual How much s/he has interest in learning, willing to study and develop his/her abilities and skill set to match with industry requirements.
Remember !! college or educational institute alone can not do anything.
Good Luck !!
