I am Amrit Pal student at Garden City University. I have spent almost 5 years with GCU. I studied BBA 2015-2018 and now presently pursuing MBA. These 5 years of my journey is a complete transformation from an Introvert to an Extrovert. GCU helped me to be what I am today. I was not only taught what was written in books but even experimental activities with real life experience.... I owe my success and growth to GCU. I am extremely blessed to be a part of this wonderful University. I remember when my parents were trying to get me admission in other university, I choose this university instead and was adamant to be a part of GCU. When attending Interview with other colleges there were questions on my ability to pay fees my economic Background, Whereas Garden City University never asked me such questions. They saw my potential and understood I deserve a chance. They were kind enough to help me to have a better life. Today I am a MBA student from such a well renowned university. It's a dream come true for a person like me who were rejected by other colleges just because they thought I can't afford the fees for being middle class and would fail if given a chance. But GCU is the only university who treated me with respect, attention and motivation which was much needed of the hour which I needed so badly. Today I am working in a reputed company with well-paid salary even being a fresher in corporate sector. This happened only because of Garden City University and the professors who are very professional and friendly at same time. The best university that I would recommend to everyone I meet. read more

If one has to describe the time period of the years 2020 to mid-2022, the apt words would be turbulent, unrealistic and uncertain. The world got accustomed to many practices and protocols which were novel or seen only on films or literatures that depict a pandemic. My admission to the GCU was during this timeframe. When all students were worried about their daily ... classes, GCU and its eminent faculty assured that no stones were left unturned to ensure daily classes and lessons were delivered to its students remotely. It took us a bit to get accustomed to, but became a daily routine. Thanks to GCU’s modern day dynamic approaches in adapting digital classrooms and meeting spaces, when WFH protocols were followed worldwide in workplaces, we the students became the torchbearers of the same in the educational sector. Thus, making us ready to face the world and its dynamic nature. All credits and gratitude to the eminent faculties and management of GCU for making sure all the lessons, assignments and projects were delivered to the students on time. At the end, the only loss would be of not meeting our classmates and friends real time and have the college life and the fun we always wanted to have. read more

As an undergraduate student (2010-2013) Chemistry, Genetics & Microbiology), I have had a fantastic time studying at Garden City University, Bangalore.

I am Tharaka Lalinda De Silva, was a student at Garden City College (yes, it was called a college back then) during 2009-2012 (Student ID 09RSS75116). I am really proud and happy to see our college has advanced to become a University. The foundation I got for my higher studies by completing the BSc at GCC has encouraged... me to keep studying and pursue a career in science. After completing Master’s degree in Australia, I am working as a Quality Control Scientist now. Just want to start by saying it was an excellent experience to study at Garden City and I met some fabulous people and built a solid foundation to my higher studies during my time in India. The lecturers are very knowledgeable and approachable. Even after 10 years from my studies, I still keep in touch with some of my lecturers. There were students from pretty much all around the world (I think it was about 70+ nationalities during my time). The friendships built with these diverse students, helped me to develop great team building personality and valuable friendships. The subject combination in BSc were Genetics, Microbiology and Chemistry. From memory Garden City at the time, was one of the very few if not the only college to offer the above combination of subjects. Studying major subjects enabled me to choose from a variety of options when I advanced further in my studies and in my career. There were great laboratory facilities to help practice the techniques studied in theory lessons. I think the practical assessments as a part of final exams in each semester are very valuable to gain confidence in laboratory techniques. If you are looking for a place to study in India look no further, I am sure Garden City will be a great start for your journey. All the best Garden City University. read more

Hi, my name is Ishara Vithana and my journey at Garden City College started in 2008. I had just finished my Advanced Level exams in Sri Lanka and I was thinking of future prospects, one of my friend from school had decided to travel to India to do a degree at a good University. I researched Universities at Bangalore... and found Garden City College. It was a great opportunity to further advance my career. I made the applications and waited for the results. My friend and myself got into the college within few months. I was overjoyed, we packed, and everything was ready. We made the move. We reached here at the start of the first term in 2009. I met many students from Sri Lanka and the staff at college made me feel at home. Freshers day came, I performed with a band and made more friends. It was exciting, there was so much to do and so much to see. We visited many cultural landmarks via the university and saw so much. We played sports after classes, made lot of new friends and studied hard during exams. I will never forget the life lessons and memories. I was very much interested in sports and joined the cricket team immediately and performed my best. I was in the college team for the whole duration of the period. We won many tournaments, visited many Colleges, it was a life changing experience. The academic professionalism by my lecturers always motivated me to further my career in microbiology and chemistry. I was really interested in food/ biotechnology career and all the lecturers really helped to mould who I am today. The practical lessons were great and I learned the actual industry techniques required to further develop my skills. By the end of 2012 I had completed my Bachelor’s degree in genetics and moved to New Zealand to finish my Masters of Science in Biotechnology. I worked there for a few years and now currently I am a Quality Compliance Manager for a top Food Production Company in Sri Lanka. Life doesn't always go your way but hard work, determination and commitment will always get you where you want to be. Study hard, enjoy life and you will be always be happy. Thanks read more

I'm Aldrin Jose Antony, a first-year Master of Science in IT from Garden City University. Education is an important factor that separates us from one another and the first step to achieving a good education is by enrolling oneself in a prestigious university.Emphasis on Life is our college motto as it has... always believed in contributing to the society by providing education, economic opportunities, growing new infrastructural improvements and continuing to come up with sustainable answers to chronic issues faced by the society.

Since students from diverse socio-economic backgrounds enroll here, the college offers a large range of scholarships to the well deserving students. The college has a very strong discipline policy which keeps the attitude and behavior of students well suited to fit in the society. It also has a distinct board of educators who identifies the skills and strengths of the students and advises them on various career options that utilizes and recognizes the student’s potential. My University's main objective is to provide a setting that is favorable to learning. This would apply to both the outside and inside of the college, where the environment is welcoming, safe, secure, accessible, well-illuminated, well- ventilated, and aesthetically pleasing for both teaching and the student body. Additionally, it is well equipped with sports fields, parking lots, playgrounds, and other outdoor learning places including clubs, libraries, workshops to name a few.

To be honest I have been to Bangalore a couple of times during my schooling and PG. Since I enjoyed being in Bangalore I thought of pursuing my PG in Bangalore. I went to get my admission in a couple of colleges but I personally didn't like the ambience, but when I reached GCU it was legit bliss.... The way they greeted us, I felt it very personal and touching. Then I got my admission and it was my first day of college, it was like paradise and each and every day of our college was a very memorable one. I've got friends who are gem of a kind. The best place which has multicultural people is GCU and I would definitely recommend students who are looking for the best experience with very good scope in future. read more

'GARDENIAN' a word that made me who I am today. Years spent at Garden City University had been excellent and a memory to cherish for a lifetime. Infrastructure & Amenities provided by the University is remarkable with well-equipped labs. I had an opportunity to meet dynamic & distinguished ... Faculties who had always encouraged me to bring the best out of me. I had been posted to various Hospitals across the city as a part of clinical training which was an added advantage. Frequent field visits & workshops were organized to get better insights to Physiotherapy practice. Our University's Advance Physiotherapy unit helped me to implement my clinical skills under the supervision of highly qualified faculties. Curriculum followed here is at par with the current standard of Physiotherapy practice which included all recent evidence-based techniques which was unique in its own way. Apart from Academics, I participated in extra-curricular activities like cultural & sports events, etc which gave an opportunity to define myself. I appreciate the support of Garden City University which had been like a pillar for shaping my overall development. I feel glad that I had been a part of such an esteemed Institution. read more


My experience studying at Garden City University has been a true blessing. When I decided to opt for Bachelors in Physiotherapy in India, my parents were very sceptical about it. The history of ragging in India was very horrendous and that added to their fear. Initially, I too shared the... fear, but when I arrived at GCU, I was surprised to see no ragging banners all over the campus. This stance got further strong when both the seniors and juniors despised ragging. It promoted a learning and a reading culture. GCU also hosts students and Professors from different countries and culture, this became a huge advantage to me. Born and raised in Nepal, I was very afraid about the differences in cultures and the conflict emerging out from such. However, GCU shares a cosmopolitan lifestyle inside the campus. Here everyone is equally respected and appreciated, we celebrate everyone's culture and form a family of friends. Being close to each other's culture has improved the sense of understanding amongst us. The college too is spacious and provides us enough opportunities to explore. The Management Trainee program in GCU has its own special charm. Students who have an interest in working and improving the management inside the campus premises, get a chance to directly engage in management trainee activities inside the campus. This opportunity provides ample chances where we get to sharpen our skills for a beautiful future. The alumni network of the campus is also very strong, which provides students with opportunities to excel in the field of work. The campus consists of facilities which help enhance our skills, technically the campus has always focused on adopting the latest technical developments. Altogether, GCU has been a home away from home to me and I am proud to have joined GCU. read more


I am Miss Muskaan Sajid Sayed from 6th sem BPT,honoured to share my experience in Garden City university. Upon my arrival to GCU I was overwhelmed by the whole infrastructure of the campus, It felt so alive and fascinating. The most alluring part of the Campus was "THE LAGOON “with the... water running through it, it made me feel like I am in a resort for a mini vacation. So apart from being mesmerised by the campus,GCU has a captivating approach towards not only academic but also for extracurricular activities. Being a student of GCU not only means that you are bound just by studies, but there is so much more to it. The grand college fest & GARDENIA is a must attending event as you get a chance to showcase all your talents and most importantly interact with all your mates. The biggest flex point here is that everyone is EQUAL in GCU. You experience a cosmopolitan atmosphere with people from all religion,culture, and nationalities under one roof.GCU is a different world all together where there is no place for discrimination and a bucket full of opportunities. According to academic front, GCU has infinite scholars, it is very charismatic to have 50+ courses to offer just under one roof. GCU is a talent hub, where you can find ample of young budding talent and all-rounders. On the sports front also, GCU has always been enthusiastic, you won't believe but we have our very own “GIRLS CRICKET TEAM “ me being a part of the team , has won many matches , isn't it charming !! I am an extrovert always up for all challenges and activities! On every occasion GCU has been supportive and always guided me. GCU has provided me with a whole lot of opportunities. Recently we have won 11 trophies in an inter-college event held in Chennai. This is not all, there is much more to experience in GCU . Now also I am exploring GCU and GCU helps me to explore my talents. My university has made me self-independent , confident and a malleable person .

When I passed my high school, my only goal was to graduate with an English (Hons) degree and get a well-paid job. However, when I look back at Garden City University it has played an important role in not just giving me the best time as a student but also molded my personality as well... as my professors helped me gain a different perspective in life, which I am sure would have not happened, if it were any other place. The faculty for the department of “Indian and Foreign Languages” is second to none. They are highly knowledgeable, patient and one of the most awesome things that I noticed during my time at GCU is that my faculty never imposed the interpretations of any (literature pieces) texts on the students, they solely explained what the text meant and left the creativity of students to interpret it, so that we have insight to various possibilities of what a writing can offer. The best part of the University is its internship in the last semester and the professors helped me thoroughly to get one that suits the course I opted for, which not only helped me to gain experience in my field, but I also learned how to deal with people in a corporate world. read more


My experience at Garden City University is a memory of learning and expertise gathered to cherish for a lifetime. Student life here is fruitful and enjoyable as well. GCU - a place encompassing all infrastructural, clean and eco-friendly environments - is not just for incredible... academics, but also for a successful career. GCU showed me what a professional world is and rooted my knowledge and confidence to have myself equipped with problem-solving skills. Our department and faculty members immensely focused on presentational and interpersonal skills, motivating us to express our opinions alongside academics with an international standard of establishing coherence among and in between each student, irrespective of national and cultural diversities. I am solely thankful to GCU, especially our beloved professors for being a milestone in my transformation and helping me turn into a better professional. read more

My favorite element of Garden City University is its faculty members and learning resources. Being knowledgeable, inspiring, and approachable, my instructors provided students with much guidance and mind-opening perspectives. Their dedication to education helps us develop... academic interests and grow intellectually. In addition, various learning resources, such as the Library, and Students Clubs encourage the students to find and explore their field of interest. These resources are successful in assisting us in overcoming academic as well as practical challenges. As a student graduating with the highest honor, feel proud and well-prepared because GCU has given me the essential tools for more academic excellence in the future. read more

Throughout the entire time, since the admission at GCU, I've experienced the most productive and self-oriented days of my life. Engaging and informative academic sessions tied up with more extracurricular sessions and activities were really encouraging the students... to be aware of the surrounding world around them. I've personally felt that I've become more self-sufficient through various orientation programmes and workshops initiated by the University. As I belong to the language department, I've had a great time interacting with various talented and renowned personality from the field of literature. Also, it would be incomplete without mentioning my supporting and motivating faculties, who always work for their students and overall wellbeing. Being a student, the opportunity and chances of rising up effectively are vast in GCU. I strongly believe that the center aim of the University is to make their students capable of facing the true world and teaching them to overcome their circumstances, so that they never fail in life. GCU brings out talents that are buried deep inside us and guides us in using them in the best way. read more

My Name is Youngji Ro. I have done my Bachelor in Tourism Honours from Garden City University. My Experience in GCU was overall very good. As I recall my experiences, I can say the orientation programs that were conducted in the beginning were really the icebreaker.... The orientation program helped me to interact with other departments too. The tourism department takes immediate action on every complaint, and they help us with our concerns. The classes were very interactive and educationally detailed. The Campus is huge, and you get to meet people from different countries and share your experiences. Even during the covid situation the classes were conducted online, and they were very informative, and we had the chance to go deep into the subject. I would like to thank GCU for such an amazing learning experience that I got during my bachelor’s degree. read more

Ms. Saffana

I still remember the day I first stepped into the campus. With emotions of joy and nervousness I started my journey with many like me. But today, looking back I wish this culmination could wait a little longer. Garden City University and B.A Tourism (Honors) was... a completely different experience for me. It opened up a new chapter in my life and has helped me grow as a person. The people I met in these 3 years have had a profound impact on me and shaped me into the confident and independent person that I am today. Little did I know that we would part ways sooner than we expected but the Green House, food Court and Classrooms have left an everlasting impression on me and I will cherish it till the end. Garden City University has given me a lot for which I am forever grateful. The perfect hostel life with fun memories, so many talented and beautiful human beings as friends and inclusive and compassionate mentors and professors who have not only empowered me but have also guided me as a friend and confidant. The online sessions and activities that they organized for us during this pandemic helped me move forward with my education and build new skills. Never forget the pillars of your success and with that I will fondly look back at the memories I shared with the non-teaching staff who never failed to put food on our plates and helped me during my stay. Finally, I would like to congratulate all my fellow graduates who have shown diligence and hard work and I wish them all the success and good health for the future. Thank You. read more

Ms. Shivali

To begin the journey with Garden City University was as exciting as it was till today. The teachers and staff were really great with students with everything we needed. Our seminars, group projects and workshops helped me understand what teamwork and effort of... one means. Now I know that all those days help me now in my path to a career. I cannot forget the days of GCU's cultural activities. They still are my favourite memories to hold on to. Cannot say it louder but GCU has made my life brighter for real. When exams arrived, I still remember, the way we ran to the boards to check our roll numbers and to the exam halls. And waiting for results, though it was hard then. It made me what I am to everything that is coming in the life ahead to me. For real, GCU has a made a print in my life. I still miss the cafeteria. Thank you! read more

Before the admission, there was a lot of confusion regarding which college to join or which to not. That moment I came to know about GCU website and was amazed by the fascinating infrastructure, the vast courses and amazing faculty profile. At that time itself... I decided to join GCU. When I stepped into GCU it was more beautiful than I thought it would be. Campus life at GCU is really awesome. I met my faculties, and they were very supportive and cooperative.

As a teenager, who shifted to a different state to pursue her higher studies I had no idea what was waiting ahead of me in Garden City College. I joined GCC in 2010 and it was truly a global experience. I met people from different countries and of different... culture. One of the major highlight for me was our libraries apart from the dreamy campus and awesome cafes. Those two libraries were built and arranged with much consideration and analysis. Although I understood that little late, to be precise once I got to experience the student life again. Our department had a compact and compassionate team. The faculty members of our department were always friendly and supportive. They found time to make sure that we were having a good time during the college days, always reminded us the industry is going to be different so consider every small opportunity and give our best. The department staffs were also friendly and helpful, especially during the final days of the semesters. Every month we had a new event and which department would be called to participate, decorate and arrange everything -FAD! Each events and its preparations were a different learning experience altogether, which almost every fashion student would agree. Being part of Gardenia and other inter and intra college festivals made the days more memorable. The chaos before every event and the sleepless nights before submissions were never the ones I imagined I would miss. Thank you all for making my days memorable. read more

One of the things I love the most about Garden City College is the emphasis placed on different learning styles beyond the classroom; from team-based learning activities with our classmates to studying aspects and concepts of hotel management here, you really feel... like the experience and learning are tailored to suit your needs. The Faculty and administration here are constantly working directly with us in order to make the Hotel Management program the best it can be for us as students. I am constantly impressed by how earnestly our feedback is incorporated into the day-to-day student life. The modules within the college exemplify this idea not only academically, but also socially, by providing a sense of ‘home’ while on campus. I strongly recommend Garden City University to those who want to be a success in this Industry. read more

I would like to take this opportunity for expressing my sincere gratitude to the management & the faculty members of BHM department, Garden City College., without whose help, I would not be able to write this. I consider myself fortunate enough to have been placed... in such a unique department, serving a unique role with one of the leading Hotel chains of the country. My dream and aspirations has been made possible by the collective efforts of team BHM, by inculcating the ethics, morals and values of a professional during my days in college. All the teachings, lessons and assignments that I have gone through have gradually helped me develop, sharpen & polish my skill-set to earn this rewarding job and has also contributed in recognizing me as a competent resource for the company. While on the same subject, I would like to throw some light on the high standards of grooming & personal development that is maintained in GCC and due to which I blended seamlessly into the white-collar industry. When I look back on all those days of hard work and pain, I can say with pride & honour, that they were totally worth it. I would be forever indebted to my alma mater and its wonderful team of faculty members for the many lessons and opportunities that were given to me. Previous read more

When I studied Hotel Management at GCC, we were still under Bangalore University. I loved every minute of it. Today though, you enter the gates of Garden City University, it looks like a university that could easily stand up to any foreign university in the world today.... Stunning greenery is everywhere you look and there is an enhanced air of academia. You see students who lead well-balanced lives between extracurricular activities and learning their curriculum. The progress of this university has been truly incredible. One thing that has not changed though is the commitment of the faculty to excellence, in both imparting their knowledge to the students as well as being there for them as people to support them in their lives. The faculty has always managed to strike a healthy balance between being lecturers and being fully approachable even outside class to hear out a student in need. Therefore, although hotel management is a difficult field to enter, with long work hours, and a physically and mentally demanding work environment, the students are prepared for the world they will enter into after graduating college, whichever path they choose, because the faculty have strengthened them and given them all the knowledge necessary for a successful career.I have made lifelong friends, from both the student body and faculty at GCC and I am proud to call Garden City College my alma mater. read more

I had a great experience with GCU. They helped to use “Real World” examples to help make the material not seem so cumbersome and to relate to how I can use it in my everyday occupation. I think the most valuable thing that I learned was the concepts behind what I was... doing every day. I know that having the knowledge and the degree will help me to advance. My stay here has been accompanied by a wide array of opportunities to expand myself in extra-curricular activities. The staff is willing to assist with ease. I have also been aided to pursue a hotel management program with a very comfortable class size which allows best one on one interaction with lecturers who are very knowledgeable of what they are doing and teaching. “I felt welcomed and at ease from the first day I entered the college. The staff are some of the most amazing people I have met and I owe a great deal of my career to them. We were always encouraged to take part in various co-curricular activities and competitions, this not only helped in our holistic growth, but also helped us in building a network with other professionals and students. I would like to thank everyone at BHM department in GCU for their continued support and encouragement. read more


“Two roads diverged in my life and, I choose the one with less traveled by and that has change my life.” We were a part of something unprecedented, something unheard of, something new. We overcame Challenges, faced the ruthless world, learned , unlearned,... relearned and in the process, made memories of a lifetime. GCU will always be another home for us. As we gracefully culminate the three years spent here, it feels humbling to be a part of the history. I am sure the upcoming batches of GCU will continue the rich legacy and strive to make us proud. Our college is well equipped with facilities that brings out the best in us. The homely environment, and dedicating teachers makes the B.SC Fashion and Apparel Design more thrilled, challenging and passionate to learn something new always. The three years of mine in GCU was always the best years of my life. read more
