Aligarh Muslim University - Aligarh Muslim University, Courses, Admission, Campus, Results, Alumni, Fees, Eligibility, Studies, Exams, is one of the oldest premier Central Universities of India with a unique and rich culture of its own. It owes its existence to the selfless and untiring efforts of the great visionary Sir Syed Ahmad Khan. Deeply moved by the socio-economic and educational plight of his community after the First War of Independence of 1857, he was quick to realize that the panacea for these ills lay in inculcating the spirit of free enquiry and modernism in the community.His exposure to the British Universities, particularly those at Oxford and Cambridge, and their public schools, inspired him with a new vision of a harmonious pattern of culture, combining the best elements in the cultures of the East with the arts and sciences of the West. In 1875 he founded a High School at Aligarh, which, within three years, was raised to a College known as Mohammadan Anglo Oriental College which metamorphosed into Aligarh Muslim University in 1920 through an Act of Parliament.
In tune with the ideals of Sir Syed Ahmad Khan due attention was paid to the education of girls. In 1942 the Muslim Girls’ School was raised to the status of a full-fledged Degree College for Women. Since 1951 it is one of the several institutions maintained by Aligarh Muslim University. Undergraduate women students in the Faculties of Agricultural Sciences, Arts, Commerce, Life Sciences, Science and Social Sciences receive instructions in the Women’s College.
The Aligarh Muslim University draws students from all corners of the country as well as foreign countries, especially Africa, West Asia and Southeast Asia. In some courses, seats are reserved for students from SAARC and Commonwealth Countries. Hostel accommodation is provided to the students and there are extraordinary facilities for co-curricular (cultural,literary) activities and sports.
