- Osmania University
Named after its founder, Nawab Osman Ali Khan, Osmania Universitycame into existence in 1918. It is the seventh oldest in the Country and third oldest in South India. Though the need for the University for the Hyderabad State was felt, both by the intelligentia and the people for a long time, the initiative came from a civil servant, Sir Akbar Hydari, who was then the Home Secretary to the State Government.
Over a period of eight decades, the University has shown remarkable progress in all the departments. It has many distinguished alumni who have significantly contributed to the academic and economic development of not only the region but also of the country. Its alumni have distinguished themselves nationally and internationally in various spheres of life and are spread far and wide around the world.
Sir Hydari, in a memorandum to the Education Minister in Early 1917, emphasized the need to establish a University of Hyderabad with 'Urdu' as the medium of instruction "as it is the language of the widest currency in India, official language of the State, and it is a language which is understood by a vast majority of the population of the State."
The mission of the University is to achieve excellence in teaching and research and to create opportunities for the students to contribute to the national and regional development. There are currently 12 Faculties, 53 Departments and offers 27 UG Programmes, 68 PG courses, 24 PG Diplomas, 2 Research Programmes at M.Phil. and Ph.D. levels and 15 Certificate Programmes.
