Sandeep University vs KK University

Sandeep University vs KK University

Bihar is only seldom considered when Top universities in India are discussed. Though the state has a sizable population, the number of quality government and private educational institutions is fairly less.

Sandeep vs KK

Sandeep University and KK University are two recently established institutions in Bihar

The lack of quality universities and colleges in Bihar puts students from the state at a disadvantage. While students from other states such as UP, Punjab, Gujarat, and many more have a number of options, such a luxury is not afforded to Bihar students.

Though there is a dearth of quality universities in Bihar, there isn’t a complete absence of the same. Sandeep and KK University are two amongst a handful of well-known universities in the state. This article strives to shed further light on each of these institutions and provide a wholesome analysis based on a group of pre-determined factors.

The Factors

The factors which we will use to analyze Sandeep and KK University are listed below:

1. Placements

Compared to a government college degree, a private college/university is often considered a more risky prospect. This is because a private college/university generally has a less lucrative placement record. Despite being private in their ownership structure, private institutions fail to attract as much attention from recruiters as government colleges as the latter tend to have a better alumni network than the former.

Alumni networks play a key role in shaping placements at a given college. Most government colleges have an extensive alumni network due to their relative age compared to the newer private institutions.

2. Student perception of a college/university

In India, education is considered by most families as a matter of great importance. No family wants to send their children to a college which is perceived poorly in the general public. There have been many examples when a college’s reputation has been destroyed simply on the basis of a slight negative perception        

3. Infrastructure

Since the number of colleges in Bihar is already significantly less, it becomes imperative to focus on the quality of infrastructure in the existing universities. The impact of infrastructure can be best understood by comparing infrastructure between some of the best colleges and universities of the world and India.

For instance, compare IIT Bombay to MIT Massachusetts. While IIT Bombay is arguably India’s best offering in terms of student quality and infrastructure, it is no match for MIT. This is not just down to academic and student quality, but also the presence of the best infrastructural facilities in the world.

4. Affordability

Stumping up money for higher education in India is increasingly becoming a big problem as the number of aspirants applying to colleges in rising every year. For this reasons, more and more private colleges and universities are increasing tuition fees in hope of a massive windfall.

These strands put together result in affordability becoming a major factor for most students getting into the swamp of college admissions.

Sandip University, Sijoul

Spread across 60 acres, Sandip University is a private institution located in Sijoul, Bihar. After achieving remarkable success in Nashik, Sandip University spread its wing eastwards, namely to Bihar where there is a pronounced absence of prominent universities and colleges.
