  • Beautiful buildings, so the stars... ... We went for a certificate.. The process is long and signboards are not conspicuous... The staff absolute govt people... Sitting at their desk.. Reading the newspaper ... And good at only pointing ..go there.. Go here... The librarian.. An old person.. Was sweet...

  • This is a well known and sought after university in the country. The buildings can be carried monuments or I'm other words temple which has shaped the lives of many. Highly esteemed university. M also a part of this university, this makes me to feel proud. All the best to the staff and students here

  • 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.

  • One of the best university in India must visit here. The architecture of the Madras university is very attractive and beautiful. Many of the famous scientist are done their PG and PhDs in here. Don't miss this place
