About the university:

The foundation of Dr B. R. Ambedkar University (originally known as Agra University) was laid on the 1st of July, 1927, as a result of hectic efforts of a band of enthusiastic educationists like Rev. Canon A.W. Davis, Munshi Narain Prasad Asthana, Dr L.P. Mathur, Lala Dewan Chand, Rai Bahadur Anand Swaroop and Dr Brajendra Swaroop,. Original jurisdiction of University extended over United Provinces of Agra, Central India and Rajputana with 14 affiliated colleges and 2530 students of which, 1475 students belonged to United Provinces. Initially, there were only four faculties in the University viz. Arts, Sciences, Commerce and Law. Faculties of Medicine (1936), Agriculture (1938), Home Science (1980), Basic Sciences (1981), Fine Arts (1982) and Management (1994) were added subsequently.

A decisive characteristic in influencing the education of an academic institution is the pursuit of excellence and consistent adherence to high standard in terms of imparting knowledge promoting research. During last eighty three years the University has endeavoured to keep adopting these high ideas and has established rich traditions and evolved respect from the intellectual community. University has sincerely served the cause of higher education in northern India. The ancient principle of integrating ethical and moral values in education has been the endeavour of the University. To inculcate these essential values in its students academicians have been assiduously trying to sharpen the content and curriculum of the University.

The University is steadily surging ahead as a centre for higher scientific vocational and job oriented education and innovative research. The goal of the University is to innovate in the field of education and to become a centre of excellence both Nationally and Internationally. The University is not only confined to impart quality education but also to satisfy the burning desire of the students who are exploring the creative intellect and learning attitude of the students. The University is making every effort to fulfill the spirit of University motto "Tamso Ma Jyotirgamay" moving from darkness to light.

    4. Thanks for your quarry. Most of the central universities have only full time courses, in which 6 month course work and 6 month dissertation writing. SO we need to sit in class room for six months. But some state universities are allowing students to do part time courses under condition of
      . "Any person employed in any concern/organisation / institution, situated within the jurisdiction of the State of Tamilnadu / Research institutions recongised by Bharathiar University situated outside the state of Tamilnadu, after obtaining the Master's degree with a minimum of 50% of marks in the qualifying examination. Such candidates shall produce a no-objection certificate from the employer or head of the institution (in case of educational institutions)

      ii. No temporary / conditionally appointed / guest lecturers in the University departments be considered for admission to part-time researchers in the University departments.

      iii. Further conditionally appointed / temporary / Guest lecturers in self-financing courses in aided and Government Colleges / Recognised institutions be admitted as part0time researchers.
      For example pls check the link:
