What Our Students Say?
I have great privilege to choose Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham says Nadhini chandra who is first year student of MSW. Here, I have better opportunity for integrated development of my personality and broaden the vision through excellent facilities, infrastructure, curriculum, interaction with faculty, students as well as other institutions of higher learning from India and abroad. On comparing the course content of the departments of Social Work in India I prefer the social work at this University due to the course content, teaching learning methodology, collaboration with social agencies, collaboration with universities in India and abroad. Certainly, I have great honor to state that there are ample opportunities in Department of Social Work to develop a totally new perspective of the global society & commit with the social responsibilities and a sustainable and peaceful world. The MSW program provides an opportunity to the students with social commitment by providing hands on experience to face practical situation during course work. I also get an opportunity for intensive learning in the classroom as well as professionally supervised agencies.
At ASCOM u get the exposure which is hard to get in any other institution. One gets chances to report in various occasions that are unseen by others. Above all it’s the ethics that Amrita teaches puts you on par with others says Gauranga Banerji.
A final B.Tech (IT) student Kirtika Ramraj says that the nature work was at its best in this campus. She is very much inspired by the functions like Amritotsavam and Gokulashtami celebrated in the campus. She adds that this institution not only ensure good education but also ensures a good career. The CIR dept gave her intensive training and helped her to develop the confidence which she shared with us.
