[Resolved]  Icfai Hyderabad — ICFAI University is a BIG CHEATER in education field

Dear Sir,

I am Priyanka Aggarwal, student of ICFAI university, enrolment number MBA2054695. I have taken admission to the ICFAi university in year 2005 in MBA course. It is a corresspondence course. ICFAI university has taken complete course fee of around Rs. 2, 00, 000 in year 2005-06. And after that they are charging Rs. 500 per paper, i.e. compulsarily a minimum of Rs. 1000 per group.
In last 4 years they have changed the pattern of exam almose every 3 months. They have also changed the subjects in the said course many times. Even after clearing the exam for the group, we had to reattempt the same group becayse the unversity has changed the course for that particular group. They have also made the exams difficult to pass as instead of giving 1 paper of 100 marks with time limit 3 hours, now we have to give 2 papers with 200 marks with time limit of 6 hours with a break. They also have a clause that simultaneously we have to clear both the papers in a group to get clear the group. All these factors force the students to fail in the exams and make money for the institute. WE STUDENT STRONGLY BELIEVE THAT THESE ALL ARE THE TRICKS OF MAKING MONEY AND NOTHING ELSE.
Many times I have asked them to refund the money, but they declined. Also they declined when I asked them to change my course from MBA to MCA with the same money. I wrote many mails to the dean but he also declined to make the refund.
Just like me my cousin brother and my sister in law and a friend of mine has lost so much of money with this university. Because we ended up giving exams as we all are working and can not devote much of time in studies and hence failed in the exams besides attempting many time for the same group.
I want to raise the voice of on behalf of many students who have been cheated like this by ICFAI university and many other such universities. Please advise what can be done against this university.

Appreciate your quick response.

I do agree with Priyanka. ICFAI seems like interested in making money not providing education. I have taken exam from USA and they also take objective exams but they dont make this kind of stupid exam pattern e.g. for one subject two exams that too objective. Earlier in ICFAI it was only one exam per paper.
Because of this cheating attitude CFA o[censored]SA has broke the tie-up and now its ICFAI.ORG website itself is blocked.
many a time many organization do that kind of practices but affected students are less in numbers can't do anything against such a big organization. u should file the cast in consumer forum against ICFAI they will help u to refund your money from them.
I was just planning to enrol my daughter for the course and just looking for extra info on webs and thanks Priyanka ... no I am not going to enrol now...
Hey all,

I am a student of ICFAI university Tripura, recently I got problem regarding eligibility for exams I have sent my complaint to ICFAI University Tripura arbitration Tribunal, Then I received prompt reply from them and my problem got solved. I can’t understand rather than highlighting issue directly to the Institute, why people are more concentrated on posting issues on forums. So, I prefer you to contact IUT tribunal by sending email (quote your Name and Enrollment Number) at [protected]

Name : Nawab khan
I name is Archana. I have taken admission in MBA (360 flexi course). I paid the almost Rs.27, 000 to the inversity.I am working in Infosys and due to my promotion, I could not get time to study. So, I decided to quit this course before I appear the exams for any group. Now a days, I m getting calls for full payement of fees.
They are harasing me by sending dishonor letters for late payment every week. I get many calls to pay the fees and never got the call for rejoining the course. I did not attend any exams and even not continiuing the cousre so i m not liable to pay the fees. And also now thay are threatening me that if I dont pay the compltete fees i will have to come to Hydrabad court for legal actio.
Now it has been proved thet this unversity is not not an actaul unversity but is just a business centre where we fools invest our money and time without knowing the further consequnces. I URGE PEPOLE TO KNOW ABOUT THIS INSTITUTE PROPERLY AND THEN ONLY THINK TO JOIN THIS INSTITUTE, OR ELSE LIST OF FOOL PEOPLE WILL GO ON. I REQUEST TO EDUCATION MINISTER AND HEAD OF THIS UNVERSITY TO LOOK INTO IN MATTER.
i am ankita pattanaik from bhubaneswar.i have given jan.10 exam for mba, but i cant view my results for dishonour of cheque in the month of february.why?if i have paid fully upto the month of jan and appeared the exam.then why cnt i view my results for that particular month, the system in icfai university is the worst one.they only look forward to charge money in every matter with zero performance.i paid them that cheque amount including the dishonour charges.but here the system is so slow.and telecallers will call and iritate you all the please awre of this university coz i have to continue any how becuase the money is not refundable.thats why please be alert when ever you think that you are going to invest in a bad organisation lik this.
hi im Govardhan,
im studying B.Tech final year in chennai i want to join in ICFAI hyderabad After reading all this comments posted on the forum i thought of better wait for one more year and join in another university, can anyone tell me whether this university offers education or just it's a business centre for exchanging money reply me soon
Its true that ICFAI is a big cheater, well many students suffered, I ncase students are treated in the same way, well u students take any kind of action. You are the stroong pillars, attack the administration. Some one has to start this.
I tend to agree with Priyanka...
Iam really frustrated with this university.Cany any help me in refunding the fee from this hopeless university.
Its very true that ICFAI University is a big cheat. It just makes people fool. I had taken admission in ICFAI for correspondence coure 360 degree flexible learning in the year 2007. I attended only three classes and I did not like the teaching pattern and there were very few students attending the classes. Since i was not able to understand anything i decided to quit this course and did not attend any class neither did i write any exam. I had to pay 25, 000 rupees to the university. When i stopped paying them the money University people started sending me threatening mails that they will take me to court for not paying the fees. They never ask me to join back the course they are just asking for money.When i'm not attending any classes and I dint even appear for even a single exam then for what reason should I pay them the amount. University dint even give me back 25, 000 rupees .What I already paid has been wasted.
Dear Sara Fatima,

Please note that you are pursuing a distance education which requires certain degree of individual effort to complete the program. The classes are only an option and if you are not satisfied, you can always opt out of it. Being a distance education program you can as well complete the program through self study.
Please contact the university for further clarification. You may write to [protected] or call our toll free no[protected] or[protected]

I totally disagree with SSO, even me and my friend faced the same problem with this guys. ICFAI is a very big cheat. We also enroll for MBA Flexible programme in 2007 and we didn't wrote any exam till date. After paying upto 60, 000 Rupees, the university is not responding at all on our queries.
But for the payment they will send us threatening mails to us and our family members. We all are planning to file a petition in court regarding this university management once we are in hyderabad. This is our hard earned money, we are not going to loose that for this cheaters. Even we will prepare to write to media as well about these guys, who make students life hell.
