Overview

Presidency University, Kolkata was established in 1817 but granted full university status in 2010. It is one of the first institutes of Western-type higher education in Asia. In 1817, a group of enlightened Indians and Englishmen set up the Hindoo College. 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.


Presidency signed a MoU with Trinity College, Dublin; the premier university of Ireland. The spirit of research has always been given top priority in all academic activity in the erstwhile Presidency College. Research activities in the Presidency University; on the one hand contribute to the fundamentals of various sciences and on the other, to the understanding of socially relevant issues.
