Agra University Drop Out Rate High, Courtesy No Placement Cell
  • Agra University campus placements are close to null following which the batch strength of courses such as B.Tech, B.Pharma, B.Com and B.Sc has declined.
  • Agra University is planning to establish a placement cell to help the students find relevant job opportunities.

Agra University students are dropping out of the university due to the lack of placement opportunities since the past three years.

According to the reports, companies have stopped visiting the university due to the lack of infrastructure and a bad reputation with respect to its exam structure and results. Not many companies have visited the University in the last three years following which the batch strength in courses such as B.Tech, B.Pharma, B.Com and B.Sc has also declined.

The class strength of 60 students has been reduced to only 12 in the MBA batch of the 2017-18 academic session. The MBA course is offered at the Seth Padam Chand Jain Institute of Management but no company has visited the campus for the placement process.

The same scenario of declining class strength is seen at the Dau Dayal Institute of Vocational Studies. The institute has an intake of 120 seats but only 52 seats were filled in. Apart from this, the varsity does not have a placement cell which is one of the main reasons for the increasing number of dropouts.
