Presidency College


"A History of Educational Brilliance"

Presidency College, formerly known as Hindu College, is one of the most reputed and prestigious educational institutes of the country. Being part of a city like Kolkata, known for its great lineage of writers, artists, Nobel prize winners and educationists, this college provides nothing but the best of everything to its students. A part of the University of Calcutta, the college has undergraduate, postgraduate and PhD degree courses in the fields of Arts, Science and Commerce. It has witnessed and undergone many changes and face lifts right from the freedom struggle era to the 21st century and has gone from a modest 20 students in 1817 to nearly 2000 students today. The quality of education and facilities made available for learning is evident from the list of successful people that have passed out from here; the alumni boasts of the first President of India Dr. Rajendra Prasad, Chief Ministers of West Bengal like Shri Jyoti Basu and Shri Buddhadeb Bhattachary, Chief Justice of India Sabyasachi Mukherjee, scientist Sir Jagadish Chandra Bose and legendary Indian actor Ashok Kumar.
