If you asking me about my experience during study in Vels University, it was awesome and full of enthusiasm. Most important fact is that our teachers were so co-operative, simple and well informed . They always motivate us to innovate and to be an expert in our field. Besides this friends in our department and in other department too were so friendly. As I come across the whole two year course, I always felt a sense of unity in diversity of all Indian culture in Vels. The centrally location of Vels near to Chennai city help us to travel to shopping mall and city side for amusement during weekends . In my view to become a good person and make a good personality, Vels university is a good choice. Thank you to give me this opportunity to share my experience.
Mr. Anup Ranjan Jena (M.Sc. Microbiology) 2010-2011
When I decided to do my M.Sc , I came across in contact of many Universities in Bangalore and Chennai, but at last I stopped in VELS University (VU) in Chennai. I have seen many universities, which are doing business of education instead of giving quality of studies to students. But VU is best, which is always thinking of students’ perspective. I had a great time at VU. It was very helpful in achieving my career goal and converts my endeavors into real time world. The faculties are very experienced and committed to help the students to excel. I am very thankful to the faculty that gave me the knowledge and confidence and has brought a new dimension into my life to achieve a successful career .I would strongly recommend anyone to VU for its quality in studies/course frame. Very Best,
