Created by an Act of the Indian Parliament, the University of Hyderabad, has, over three decades, distinguished itself as one of the best in the country as a centre for teaching, research and innovations. With a highly qualified and internationally renowned faculty, motivated students, scholars, and support staff, it has carried out cutting edge research in disciplines such as the sciences, social sciences, humanities, technology, visual arts, communication, management and continuing education.
Right from its inception, the University has pioneered teaching, research and extension activities in the best possible manner, keeping with the mandate given to it by the nation. It has vigorously sought interdisciplinary and interface studies in frontier areas across disciplines. It has hired high quality faculty, and the admission of outstanding students, at the national and international level, while keeping its commitment to the important goal of social justice. Today, it has a thriving undergraduate program of the integrated kind, and its post-graduate studies and research programs rival some of the best in the country. It has broken fresh ground in the Study in India (SIP) program involving international students.
Located in the historic city of Hyderabad, on a sprawling campus, sylvan and idyllic, it is indeed the envy of any Nature lover. The University of Hyderabad combines high academic excellence commensurate with the national goals. Today these goals include public-private partnership, research that is socially relevant and empowers large sections of our marginalized population, and above all, innovation of radically new thinking that can make us effective players in the domain of international education.
Students and scholars will find this university an oasis for study and reflection. The University is proud of the fact that it is the only university in the country to provide fellowships to every student at all levels. The fellowship has another unique feature where the toppers at the end of every semester will be regarded as achievers and an increase in their fellowship is offered. With state of art computing support, the University will have the distinction of being the first institution in the country to have 68 mbps wi.fi connectivity. This will considerably improve connectivity and speed, vital for sustaining the high academic credentials of the University. They will have a most comfortable stay in well furnished halls of residence: best of the library, state-of-art laboratories, computer, sports and recreational facilities, and above all, an outstanding faculty that is friendly and accessible, and an administration that is responsive and proactive.
