Deemed university is the other name of Deemed-to-be-University, which is an accreditation of a university awarded to higher educational institutions in India by the Department of Higher education. So basically, any university which is ‘deemed to be a university’ by the UGC under Section 3 of the UGC Act of 1956, is called a deemed university.

What is a Deemed University?

The main feature of Deemed University is Autonomous Control. In a deemed college or university, the management has complete control over anything and everything ranging from the student curriculum to Examinations and issues related to administration and management.

The setting of the syllabus and even the course information is in the hands of university itself when it has become deemed. But the same does not hold good for a college that is associated with the banner of some university. The fee is usually higher than other state universities and colleges, but it is worth the facilities that are provided.

There are research and education in various fields such as Medical Science, Physical Education, marine education, Languages, Social Sciences, Agriculture and Dairy Research, Forest Research, Maritime Education, Yoga, Humanities, Music and Information Technology, etc.

These universities are very significant in promoting and promulgating higher education in various states across the country. They have their own appeal (due to reputation in terms of faculty, infrastructure etc ) and their own base of students.
