HOD, Times School of Media Sunil Saxena says, “Choosing the Right Media School based on key Yardsticks is Crucial for Future.”

There is no credible report that gives you the number of media schools in India. An education portal, however, carries details of more than 1,200 mass communication and media colleges, which offer almost 4,000 courses. So, how do you decide on the media school that is apt for you? Here are some of the yardsticks that you should consider when you are looking for a media school.

  • Faculty - Select a school whose faculty has worked in the industry. You need teachers who can train you well to write a news report, make a rundown chart, create a mobile video story or make a television commercial. Those with no media experience can make you good academician, but they cannot train you well for the media industry.     

  • Infrastructure - Visit the school to find out if the school has enough software and technologies to teach media skills. Truth to be told, you cannot work in any media organisation without having software proficiency.     

  • Curriculum - Examine the curriculum minutely to check if it is at a par with today’s media requirements. Check if it can prepare you for New Media, Mobile Media, Social Media, Data Journalism. Avoid schools that are  not updated with emerging technologies.     

  • Student – Faculty ratio – Generally, in media schools, the faculty student ratio should be 1:12. Teachers, otherwise, fail to give adequate attention to each and every student.     

  • Practical work: Find out if a school brings out students newspaper. If yes, what is the frequency, and what are the kinds of articles that students write. Check if the school encourages students to make mobile videos. Similarly, you must find out if the school teaches students to make TV news bulletins.

  • Nature of programme - Is the media school run by a university and recognised by UGC? Be careful if it is a non-university programme as the postgraduate diplomas or certificates offered by non-recognised university may have no validity. Check the background of a private school before joining.     

  • Placements - No schools can guarantee jobs. Be careful of schools that promise the same. Your skills will do the talking and a school can only organise a job interview for you. Media is a merit-driven profession and  media houses always look for candidates who have the right skills.

  • Visiting faculty - Today, media is being driven by fast-growing technology, and every media house is coping with the changes introduced by the same. However, some faculty may fail to teach the emerging media models. To bridge the gap, many media schools hire adjunct faculty from the industry or invite faculty on a daily basis. Make sure that you check the credentials of the visiting faculty properly.

  • Check with ex-students - Before taking a decision, you must try and meet a couple of current students or those who are alumni of the institute to clear your doubts. As the profession needs students who can work from day one, it is more important to find the right media school.

How is B.Tech CSE from Bennett University? Is it worth joining? Is it promising or just a profiteering business?

Yastika Kumar 24th Feb, 2020

Hi Adnan,

Let's go through this step by step:

  • Infrastructure: Bennett University is a times group initiative to work on providing academic excellence. Now academics is not only limited to books desks and class. When it comes to technical education it is also about the practical application and Bennett University stands high on this. The college is well built and the labs and classes are well- maintained by the authorities. Thr hostel rooms are spacious enough to accommodate two persons at a time.
  • Faculty: Most of the faculty involved is from premier technical Institutes. Also there are frequent guest lectures by great professors.
  • Academics: They are trying their best to make their students face the world. In the first year of CSE the students are introuduced to PYTHON and ARUINO, in second  year you'll get to learn JAVA.

This University is still taking its time to grow therefore you could see some not so good reviews about it. But they are trying to evolve from all the contradictions they are facing and working on their academic structure. The reason why some believe it to be a profiteering business because of its relatively higher fees. But all this is being spent on maintaining and improving the academic environment. To make this university promising, only you have to be promising with the yourself by expanding your scope of learning by applying what you have learnt and exploring more oppurtunities.
