University of Madras

The University of Madras was established in 1857 and is one of the oldest universities of India. It was modelled on London University. The University which had only 17 University Departments, 30 teachers and 69 research scholars in 1912, has grown into a large teaching-cum-affiliating University. Today it has 18 Schools and 87 Departments of post-graduate teaching and research and 116 Affiliated Colleges, with 3 approved Institutions (OT), 5 approved Institutions (Diploma/Certificate Courses), 15 stand alone Institutions (MBA/MCA), and 52 approved research Institutions by 2016. The research and teaching functions of the University were enhanced by the Report of the Sadler Commission and the gains were consolidated by the enactment of the Madras University Act of 1923, which governs the University with subsequent amendments made from time to time.
