About College:

This is one of the largest universities in India, in terms of enrolment and physical spaces available. It was founded in 1964. The Bangalore University spread out across Bengaluru has two main campuses. These are the City Campus and the Jnana Bharathi (JB) Campus. The former is also known as Central College. Possibly India’s most sought-after law college- NLSIU (National Law School of India University) - is located within the perimeters of the JB campus. Collectively, the university occupies 1100 acres of land. The Bangalore University has been accredited by the NAAC (National Assessment and Accreditation Council). In fact, it received a five- star grading within it. The university is more of an amalgamation of existing centres, as the Central College campus has long existed since way back in 1858, while the JB one was started later in 1966. 

One of the problems the university had been facing was the vast size, which made the management tricky. So, a committee was set up to look into this matter. As per the committee’s recommendations, the Bangalore University is set to be trifurcated into three parts. The two existing campuses- JB and Central- will operate as two of those three parts named as South Bengaluru University and Central Bengaluru University. A third will be created with its base at Chikkaballapur, to be known as the North Bengaluru University. 

The academics in the existing Bangalore University is divided between six faculties which are – Arts, Commerce & Management, Science, Education, Engineering and Law. Several colleges are affiliated to this university. Prominent examples include- St. Hopkins College, Garden City College, College of Fine Arts, Mount Carmel College, National College, Oxford College of Sciences, St. Joseph’s College, St. Joseph’s College of Commerce, Surana College, Presidency College, Kristu Jayanti College, University Visvesvarya College of Engineering, Bangalore Management Academy, Acharya Institute of Management & Sciences, International Institute of Business Studies, SSMRV Degree College, KLE College and the Millennium School of Business. The university also has massive library facilities across its campuses. It has even developed its own internal network to facilitate knowledge sharing across campuses, as well as act as a repository for global best practices, which students can learn from. This project has been titled as BALNET (Bangalore University Library Network). 

The selection for the various courses is via the state-run KCET exam. Careers 360 has rated the Bangalore University at AAA. One of the reasons for the good rating is the physical spaces. The city of Bengaluru as it has historically been blessed with greenery, and the university has tried to cultivate that further. A bio- park has been curated using concepts of social forestry. The university even has its own publication unit known as Prasaranga. In line with Bengaluru’s status as the Silicon Valley of India, there is robotics and cyber centre attached to the university.
