Presidency University, Kolkata was established in 1817 as Hindoo College by a group of enlightened Indians and Englishmen which has a unique place in history. It was one of the first institutes of western-type higher education in Asia. This was taken over the British Government in 1855 as the College of the Bengal Presidency, and placed in 1857 under the newly founded Calcutta University.
Over the next hundred years and more, Presidency College was Bengal’s pre-eminent centre of higher learning. Although a constituent college of Calcutta University, it preserved a tradition of research matched by few universities in India. This gave a unique dimension to its undergraduate teaching. The formal establishment of Presidency University in 2010 allows it to refashion its venerable traditions and continuing strengths into a leading institution of the future.
