Universities in Telangana

Telangana government has taken up the process of overhauling and strengthening the public education system from the kindergarten level to degree education at college levels in a phased and systematic manner. Hyderabad is the main hub of education in Telangana. It has a long tradition in education dates back to the rule of the British in India. This was also the time when Hyderabad was under the Nizam’s rule. During the early 1930s, the Nizam established educational institutions like schools, madrasas and colleges. There was only one university during this time and the medium of instruction in all these institutions was Urdu. Today, Hyderabad is the home of leading IT firms and other companies where students can get employment immediately after the end of education. This is the prime reason why the number of applications in Hyderabad institutes increases every year.

The Osmania University, a popular higher education institute of India was also set up in the pre-independence era. With the establishment of this university, came in the practice of British system of learning in India, where learning through crafts was a preferred form of study.

The institutes here have been the alma mater to famous personalities from various walks of life such as former Prime Minister of India P V Narasimha Rao; cricketer V V S Laxman; journalist Haroon Siddiqui, cricketers Mohammad Azharuddin and Venkatapathy Raju.

One of the oldest learning centers of Telangana is the Jamia Nizamia.

The college that was set up by the Director of Education of the Hyderabad State is functioning as an autonomous body till today.
