During the Eleventh Five- Year Plan, there was a proposal put forward for the created of several more central universities, to tackle the shortage of quality higher education. It would also lessen the financial burden which was being created thanks to the burgeoning of private education. The proposal was then accepted and the decision was taken for the creation of twelve more such central universities, all in different states. These new central universities would come up in the states of – Bihar, Gujarat, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Jharkhand, Jammu & Kashmir, Karnataka, Odisha, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Punjab and Rajasthan. In addition, three more existing universities in the states of Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Uttarakhand were to be upgraded to central university status. Admissions to all these universities is via the Central University Common Entrance Test (CUCET). Special provisions here are also made for the admission of foreign students.
Jammu and Kashmir was the only state where two such central universities were built. This is because of the differing requirements between the two regions. So, the Central University of Kashmir was opened in 2009 in Srinagar, while the Central University of Jammu was established two years later in 2011 in Jammu. At present, the classes for the Central University of Kashmir take place at a transit campus. But soon, they will shift to its permanent 503-acre campus. The entire academics here is run by the respective schools, each with expertise in its own area. There are, a total of nine schools here. Each school is further divided into respective departments. The School of Social Sciences is one of the bigger ones. It has three academic departments within it, which are for – Economics, Religious Studies and Politics & Governance. The School of Languages gives the options of English and Urdu, while the School of Physical & Chemical Sciences, has the departments for Physics and Mathematics each. One can pursue both Management Studies as well as Tourism Studies from the School of Business Studies. The other schools which are generally much smaller here are those for – Education, Legal Studies, Media Studies, Life Sciences and Engineering & Technology.
