BU was established in July 1964 as an offshoot of the University of Mysore, primarily to include institutions of Higher learning located in the metropolitan city of Bangalore and the districts of rural Bangalore, Kolar.
Initially, the two premier colleges of the city, the Central College(CC) and the University Vivesvaraya College of Engineering formed the nucleus of the Bangalore University. Soon after the establishment of the Bangalore University, as a first step in the reorganization of courses of instructions, the University introduced Honours courses in the year 1965-66.
Three-year honours courses in Botany, Chemistry, Economics, English, Geology, Kannada, Mathematics and Zoology which were conducted only at the University postgraduate departments, attracted many brilliant students. All honours-passed students were admitted to post-graduate courses on priority and B.A. and B.Sc. graduates who marginally missed admission to the postgraduate courses were given an opportunity to join the final year honours course and seek admission to post-graduate courses thereafter. Since 1964. For more information, please visit www.bub.ernet.in.
