Aligarh Muslim University (AMU)

One of the most prestigious and oldest higher educational institutions in India, Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) was the brain child of noted visionary Sir Syed Ahmed Khan. Educated at Oxford and Cambridge; the prevailing socio political conditions of his native community following the aftermath of the First War of Independence of 1857 or the Sepoy Mutiny lead him to work for their upliftment using education with a harmony of both Indian and Western Schools of thoughts.

This lead to the founding of a High School in 1875; which later grew into a college known as Mohammadan Anglo Oriental College. This institution was later elevated to university level by an Act of Parliament in 1920 and henceforth has been known as the Aligarh Muslim University.

Boasting of a century old heritage with great infrastructure and a myriad of courses, AMU remains one of the top destinations for students of the country.
