Deemed University

An Institution of Higher Education, other than universities, working at a very high standard in specific area of study, can be declared by the Central Governmentt on the advice of the UGC as an Institution ‘Deemed-to-be-university’. Institutions that are ‘deemed-to-be-university’ enjoy academic status and privileges of a university.

These ‘Deemed-to-be-University’ Institutions have expanded the base of higher education in the country and are offering education and research facilities in various disciplines such as Medical Education, Physical Education, Fisheries Education, Languages, Social Sciences, Population Sciences, Dairy Research, Forest Research, Armament Technology, Maritime Education, Yoga, Music and Information Technology, etc.

The Department is determined to introduce accountability and transparency in the processing of applications for grant of status of deemed-to-be-university under Section 3 of the UGC Act, 1956. The Department has therefore placed the information regarding status of such applications on its website and reviews the position periodically. The UGC also displays all information in the public domain.
