DU, this temple of learning was established in 1922 and is known for its high standards in teaching and research and attracts eminent scholars from all over India. DU is strongly committed to learning and has been a path-setter in moulding the careers of many students. It offers huge opportunities to students coming from all over India or abroad to excel in academics, research, sports, extra co-curricular activities and is a role-model and path-setter for other Universities in the country. Its rich academic tradition has always attracted the most talented students to come forward and build their careers but also is a steppingstone in national development.

The University of Delhi began its journey in 1922 with three colleges, two faculties (Arts and Science) and about 750 students. Presently it has grown into one of the largest Universities in India. At present, there are 90 Colleges, 87 Departments, and 13 Centres, spread all over Delhi.
