R.D. National College of Arts & Commerce and W.A. Science College, Bandra


RD National College is located in the heart of Mumbai, the most happening area, ‘Bandra Linking Road’. BEST buses have an excellent frequency as the bus stop is named ‘National College’. Moreover, the college is merely 10 minutes walking from Bandra Railway Station.


The infrastructure is just above average with BMM students getting the liberty to access Wifi along with air conditioned classrooms. The campus is decent and is surrounded by Thadomal Shahni Engineering College and MMK. The library is well maintained and is equipped with hundreds of volumes of Commerce and Mass Media topics.

Courses Offered:

  • Junior College for Commerce, Arts and Science
  • Bachelor of Commerce (B.COM)
  • Bachelor of Management Studies (BMS)
  • Bachelor of Mass Media (BMM)
  • B.COM in Accounting & Finance (BAF)
  • Bachelor of Science (B.Sc)
  • Master of Commerce (M.COM)
  • Master of Science (M.Sc)



At least 8 out of 10 students are heard saying, “teachers bahut acche hai yaar”. The faculty is really good and most importantly friendly, at least for the Commerce department. They have a good knowledge about the subject. Mass Media teachers have an excellent command over their English. National is one of the most reputed institutes in Mumbai because of it's teaching staff.



National College is not very strict in terms of attendance but if you fall below 50%, the college authorities sometimes harasses you and withholds your hall-ticket.



As the college is under the HSNC board, the college has Sindhi minority quota. Still, you meet a lot of students from different background, caste and religion. ‘There are a lot of pretty faces in BMM and BMS departments’, quotes a National-ite. Participation in the festivals is given enough importance but at the same time studious crowd is seen as well. The balanced crowd puts National College a notch above other colleges.



By the time you'll read this parameter, a new hotspot restaurant or food parlour or branded store or a local desi shop will be launched on Mumbai's arguably the best one stop destination, Bandra Linking Road!



The food quality is good but it is very small in space. Extremely suffocating! Gini dosa, frankies and the Schezwan rice tops the list of menu card for every National-ite.



‘Blowfest’, held in December, is a cultural festival of National College. Participation from the in house as well as out house colleges is HUGE!



Price WaterHouse Coopers (PWC) is one of the common companies you see in National college recruiting students of BMS and BCOM every year.

Location, crowd, friendly teachers and the legacy of the HSNC board makes this college a huge hit. It should be placed in the top 5 of your list of colleges.

Condescending faculty and ill mannered staff. You'll need a good tutor to pass.

I think the canteen should be made more big and open as it is suffocating and at least a freshers party should have been announced for the new students to know the college and the students well
