On behalf of the entire fraternity of the University we welcome each one of our students to the new academic year 2016-17. We hope that all of you had a smooth admission process.

You have joined a University which is among the best institutions in the country today. The University of Hyderabad (UoH) has been listed by all the major International and National Ranking agencies among the top Institutions for the year 2016. UoH has been listed as one of the best universities to pursue higher studies in English Language and Literature, Chemistry and Physics by the Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) World Rankings. The University has been ranked among India’s best Universities, a first-ever government-backed survey, using parameters ranging from research facilities, academic excellence to the placements of graduates. As per the rankings, released by the MHRD in April 2016, UoH is ranked fourth among all Institutions in the country. This has been largely possible because the University has got the reputation and recognition over the years by the hard work put in by its faculty members, staff and more importantly the students who are today in various top positions in the country and abroad.

It is also important for us to note that the University of Hyderabad is committed to ensuring a wonderful academic life, including promotion of curricular and co-curricular activities. There are many layers of facilitation for achieving this. There are several measures put in place to ensure safety and security of the University community.

Have a wonderful stay on campus and UoH Herald wishes all students a fruitful academic year.
