Tehelka - - GANGSTERS ON THE LOOSE -

E1918, Os­ma­nia Univer­sity is one of the old­est and largest in­sti­tu­tions of higher learn­ing in In­dia.

The Univer­sity has been re-ac­cred­ited with ‘A’ grade rat­ing by the Na­tional As­sess­ment and Ac­cred­i­ta­tion Coun­cil. Os­ma­nia has been con­ferred the cov­eted sta­tus of Univer­sity with Po­ten­tial for Ex­cel­lence by the Univer­sity Grants Com­mis­sion this year, mak­ing it one of the top five Uni­ver­si­ties in the coun­try.

Twelve fac­ul­ties, 54 de­part­ments, 8 cam­pus col­leges, 5 con­stituent col­leges, 4 district PG Col­leges, 750 af­fil­i­ated col­leges spread over 3 dis­tricts of Te­lan­gana, in­clud­ing Hy­der­abad and Se­cun­der­abad, and an en­rol­ment of over 3.5 lakh stu­dents con­sti­tute the aca­demic land­scape of the Univer­sity. It of­fers 25 cour­ses at the UG level (with 158 com­bi­na­tions) and nearly 100 cour­ses at the PG level, apart from M. Phil and Doc­toral pro­grammes in a range of sub­jects. In ad­di­tion, UG, PG and Pro­fes- sional Cour­ses num­ber­ing around 30 with an en­role­ment of 65,000 are of­fered through dis­tance mode.

Os­ma­nia Univer­sity is a home away from home to nearly 4,000 in­ter­na­tional stu­dents from 78 coun­tries. The Univer­sity For­eign Re­la­tions Of­fice serves as a sin­gle win­dow agency for ad­mis­sion of in­ter­na­tional stu­dents and pro­vides fa­cil­i­ta­tive ser­vices to the for­eign stu­dents.

The Re­search pur­suits at the Univer­sity are wide rang­ing, in­ter-dis­ci­plinary and of a high order. Ac­cord­ingly, it has been se­lected un­der DBT-ISLARE, DBT-PURSE and UGC-CPEPA pro­grammes. The Uni- ver­sity has an im­pres­sive track record of in­ter­na­tional col­lab­o­ra­tion with lead­ing in­sti­tu­tions abroad. It has also forged link­ages with in­dus­try and R&D in­sti­tu­tions.

Alumni of Os­ma­nia Univer­sity have dis­tin­guished them­selves at the na­tional and in­ter­na­tional level.

Driven by the vi­sion and backed by tra­di­tions of ex­cel­lence, Os­ma­nia Univer­sity en­vis­ages a proac­tive role in re-en­gi­neer­ing the higher ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem for the es­tab­lish­ment of a knowl­edge-based so­ci­ety.
