Presidency University has a unique place in history. As the Hindoo College, set up in 1817, 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 July 2010 allows it to refashion its venerable traditions and continuing strengths into a leading institution of the future. Now as a higher education institution providing postgraduate courses and encouraging cutting-edge research, the University has seen many developments in the past two years and has further developed on its preeminent position as a key centre of research and teaching both in the country and globally.
