It has been a wonderful experience at NIHS. The ambience here is very pleasant for studies; teachers take personal care of students and we also have faculty who can understand our language, I always wanted to join BPT course and since Kolkata is nearest to my home I have chosen NIHS.
NIHS has provided me enormous knowledge of physiotherapy and changed my concepts regarding the subject. It has made me realize the need of physiotherapy in today’s fast paced lives.
The clinic is well equipped and provides many practice sessions. Seeing patients improve is very motivating. The library is well stocked.
BPT 1st yr (2011 batch)
I consider myself fortunate that I have chosen my career as a physiotherapist. After counseling at JENPRAH I decided to join Nopany Institute of Healthcare Studies as it was the first private physiotherapy college. I along with my parents visited the college and convinced by their infrastructure, I joined as the first batch of this college. Its faculty is excellent providing good guidance to the students in all aspects. Student- faculty relationship is friendly, and enthusiastic. Its library facility has a vast collection of medical and physiotherapy books that help the students enhance their knowledge. Routine internal examinations help students to prepare themselves for the annual university examinations. Seminar, workshops and presentations are frequently organized by the college. The authorities help the students to be interactive, to gain hands- on experience and to prepare them and to practice anywhere in the world.
NIHS is considered as one of the best physiotherapy institutes under the West Bengal University of Health Sciences, with renowned faculty members, well maintained clinic and library. It’s a very good experience studying at NIHS. The administration is very effective when it comes to solving problems of the students.

I was interested to do bachelor in physiotherapy because I wanted to become a healthcare professional. As the profession was relatively new to my family and me, we were confused about the course. During the counseling period, I got a clear idea about the profession and I got the confidence to join this course. The college has an excellent infrastructure for teaching physiotherapy. The teaching faculty is highly qualified and gave us a clear idea about the subjects. This is the reason I always scored above 75% marks in the university examinations. The internship program was also well designed by the college which gave us the opportunity to work in the wards of different specialty hospitals. Today I am working at AMRI Mother and Child Hospital only because of the exposure I received during my internship.
After passing my Class XII I was not sure about which course to opt for. I had given Joint Entrance Examination for Physiotherapy course and after attending the counseling, I took admission at Nopany Institute of Healthcare Studies. This institute is the best institute to study because of its infrastructure. It provides all the opportunities to its students from studies to attending national level quiz to cultural programs. The training and knowledge received at NIHS helped me to get selected at Institute of Cerebral Palsy.
Diamond Harbour, Kolkata
My brother had done a radiography course and he inspired me to study Bachelor of Physiotherapy in 2005. I had visited four colleges and found NIHS had the best infrastructure. I joined the college with lots of expectation and excitement to know how the body functions. My first dissection class in Anatomy Lab was really a great experience. We learnt, we played, we danced, and we even made our teachers dance. During the internship I got selected at BM Birla Heart Research Center and today I am working as a Physiotherapist there.
Initially I was afraid of going to a new place in the midst of strangers but when I called up NIHS and one of the faculties spoke to me in my mother tongue Mizo, I realized that at-least I have someone to speak to. Then I came to know about other students from Mizoram, Arunachal Pradesh, Sikkim which gave me the confidence to join. I know I am learning in one of the best institutes of Kolkata.
We came to know about NIHS from Edu-Fest at Mizoram where NIHS had a stall. Since we were friends from school so we decided that whatever we do we would do it together. Initially we were confused whether to join the BPT course or nor but when a representative from the institution made us understand about the BPT course and explained the opportunities after passing the course we were quite convinced. Since they had students from Mizoram in previous batches, it will not be a problem for us. We joined NIHS and we feel that the ambience and the faculties here are the best.

I came to know about the scope of the course and about the institution from my cousin Lalthuthiamngheti, who is a BPT student of this institution. After joining this institution I realized that the way the faculty take care of each student and this college is a very special college.
I came to know about the course and the Institution from the education fair at Mizoram. The representative of the college made me understand about the course and explained to me the facility NIHS provides for its students. Since Kolkata is a capital city as well as near to Mizoram, I have no regrets that I decided to join the institution.
