Over the last decade, our work towards education for social change has found deep roots. Using our experience and knowledge, we are now expanding and setting up a new University at Bhopal. We have received the LOI (letter of intent) from the government of Madhya Pradesh to establish a state private university at Bhopal. 

We have started campus construction, recruitment and programme planning to start operations by 2023.

At Bhopal, the University will begin by offering both undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes. 

We intend to offer:

  • MA in Education (Master of Arts in Education)
  • MPH (Master of Public Health)
  • BSc Biology (Major)
  • BA History (Major)
  • Teacher Education programmes

Subject to all necessary approvals, these programmes will be offered from the academic year 2023.

We will also offer diploma and short-term continuing education programmes.

We will expand our range of programmes and over the next 5 years, we hope to have about 3,000 students and 500 members, including faculty, research and operations teams.

Glimpses of the planned University campus

Our new University is located about 18 kilometres from the heart of Bhopal, at Kanasaiya. The campus construction has already begun. The 50-acre campus will have the capacity to accommodate 6,0008,000 students. We will have buildings for academic sessions, auditoriums, student hostels, and residences for our University members. We make sure to have the latest technology for our sport infrastructure and wonderful library. 

Our campus is built to be environment friendly, with extensive facilities for water conservation, solar power and local species-based tree cover and landscaping. Inclusiveness is at the heart of our campus space, and we will house the new Azim Premji School which will be open to the local community in Bhopal.

The University at Bhopal will work synergistically with our University at Bengaluru, and eventually our proposed Universities at Ranchi and in the Northeast. With this, we are working towards building a large educational ecosystem across the country.
