Guru Nanak Dev University (GNDU) is the only university of Punjab which has bagged any position among the top state public universities in the country in the recent survey released by the ‘Outlook’ magazine.

It is ranked at 17th position amongst 415 public universities of the country, said GNDU spokesman in a statement issued here today. Recently, it has also bagged 7th position among 10 top state public multidisciplinary universities as per "Week-Hansa Research Survey- 2020". This is a biggest honour for the University as it bagged the top position among the state funded universities.

Fared well in other surveys too

  • Recently, the varsity bagged the 7th spot among top-10 state public multidisciplinary universities as per ‘Week-Hansa Research Survey- 2020’
  • This is a great honour for the university as it bagged top position among the state funded north Indian universities.

The spokesman pointed out that only Panjab University, Chandigarh, which is funded by the Government of India figures before it. He said on the various parameters as far as academic and research excellence is concerned GNDU bagged 281.77 points which is highest among the neighbouring universities.

One of the major initiatives taken by this university in the recent past which has also been adopted by the University Grants Commission is the online viva for its doctoral students which not only reduces the timelines but also helps the university to get its students examined by eminent academicians from Institutes of National Repute.

In departments which have tremendous rush for admission in the current academic year 2020-2021, the entrance test is being conducted by the National Testing Agency via NTA Remote Proctored Online Based Test which would be conducted on 18 th of September. The advantage of this test is that students can appear in the test while sitting in their homes with utmost propriety. This is again the only university which has tied up with National Testing Agency for such an activity.
