University Of Madras - Review

The university of Madras is one of the most reputed along with being the oldest universities of India and Asia. The university lies opposite the Marina beach, making for a highly pleasant location, for both study and leisure. The highlight of the university apart from great courses is the Indo-Saracenic architecture (a blend of the Indian and Persian architecture) of the Senate House. Apart from this building there are several other old buildings inside that make for a beautiful vista to stroll around, especially in the evenings.

University Of Madras, Chennai Reviews

  • Proud to visit the campus of150 years old University that had produced so many stalwarts,genius and scholars. Happy to produce one from our house and participate in convocation. Memoriable. Beautiful campus.

  • University of Madras, state-controlled institution of higher learning located in Madras, India. One of three affiliating universities founded by the British in 1857, Madras has developed as a teaching and research institution since the 1920s. By the mid-1970s the university comprised 11 postgraduate faculties and 22 constituent colleges and was the examining and degree-granting authority for 149 affiliatedcolleges throughout the state of Tamil Nadu. It is a national centre for advanced research in plant pathology, mathematical physics, biophysics, and Indian philosophy. Instruction is in English and Tamil.

  • University offer all kind of courses in art, mba, distance education. Old build with good experience. Good place to study. Good infrastructure. Good environment for peaceful study. Every country peoples are studying here. So knowledge gain is also good.

  • Good service provided and nearly they have 160 years of experience. It had very old buildings. It has a library which contains books related to all the course available there. It is nearby marina beach.

  • The campus itself is beautiful with an old world charm. The buildings are not maintained well. Infrastructure isn't great. The correspondence/distance education course here is sub-par. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who actually wants to do a course out of self-interest. These courses are mainly designed for people who can have a name sake degree. Do not be surprised if how well you wrote your exam doesn't reflect on your marksheet. Many of my classmates had this problem. One of the lecturers flippantly remarked that they usually get a poor quality of students who do poorly in the exams, but they have to pass them off so that UGC doesn't cancel the courses. When we asked about the students who had done well, expecting 80% or more who had failed, he said that's the way it is, "your marks depend on your luck". That's the way it is. I don't want to quit my course, and I just want to complete it, but I wouldn't ever take up another course here. Incompetence is their middle name.
