Being a Manipalite, I am proud to be a part of this prestigious institution and lived 2 years of my life giving me the most enriching experience I can ever get in any place.


1. Education Standards

The quality of education here is comparable to any of the eminent universities across the globe and not to overlook that Manipal Academy of Higher Education has been declared as an “Institute of Eminence” in July 2018 which came as an announcement by the Union Human Resource Development Minister Prakash Javadekar. This will heighten the standards of education to boost the ranking among the top 200 Universities in the World. Getting a chance to study in such an institution, Isn’t it amazing? In a wonderful accomplishment, Manipal Academy of Higher Education broke into the Quacquarelli Symonds University World Rankings 2018 released on June 8, 2017. In the fourteenth version of the rankings, Manipal Academy of Higher Education figures in the 701-750 band, which is the best for a private Indian University. These figures are not just numbers, these standards exhibit in each and every student here. Highly qualified faculties with mammoth experience just add a feather to the cap.


2. The Campus

It is one of the largest with an area of 600 acres and finest campuses in India in private universities. For a Manipalite, this is the leading campus in all of India. It encompasses everything for a student’s evolution. It has a well-resourced and a huge library, a lush green End Point Park, an indoor sports complex named – “Marena”, KMC Greens lawn where cultural activities are organized. Kasturba Medical College and Hospital within the campus has proved to be a blessing for the residents of the city and the students as well with 24*7 excellent facilities. Manipal campus hosts nearly 27,000 students at any time in the campus with around 2000 international students. The exposure which we get to various people and cultures from the world in Manipal is nowhere in India. That’s exceptional. This prepares you for an International career.


3. Professionalism

Another remarkable attribute of the education system in Manipal is the professionalism which flows from the faculties to the students is incredible. In fact, this strong virtue is observable in each and every person who is associated with this institute, be it faculties, students, front office staff, housekeeping or any others. This is a virtue which is of utmost importance for personal growth as well as in professional life.


4. Ambidextrous growth

Various clubs and organizations within the campus add to the glory of its life. Voluntary Service Organization (VSO), Rotaract Club, Toastmaster’s club, Manipal Photography Club are just to name a few from them. If u have an interest, there is a club. All work and no play makes Johny a dull boy, Manipal has taken this seriously and organizes various cultural activities and sports around the year. Utsav being a grand among them. Annual Convocation Ceremony is just spectacular, the sparkling eyes of students and proud parents are a must see. And above all, the Independence Day and Republic Day Celebrations are just flabbergasting.


5. All under one Roof

With nearly 325 courses including foreign languages on board in one campus, what else one can expect of a University. Getting to stay in one of the greenest campuses in India. Once you are here, you would never wish to leave. After all, it’s a matter of pride to get an opportunity to study in a university which has many international collaborations giving a way to an international career. You ask it, the campus has it. And after everything you have blessings of Lord Krishna in Krishna Math and the soothingly calming Arabian Sea waves at Malpe and Kaup beaches to rejuvenate and galvanize you.
