|Already in top-gear, the Akkamahadevi Women’s University, Vijayapura by making earnest efforts had initiated its first academic session from early 2003. Having overcome the initial herculean hurdles of finding a suitable place to make a beginning, the University is all set for making its presence at Vijayapur Karnataka. This University would, in a very short time, become the beacon of higher education in Karnataka. In this student-friendly university, the emphasis would be on quality education and on hands-on practical training. The best research facilities in the region would be created here.

The Campus would be built on the concept of Green Campus and all the buildings would be adhering to this concept.
It is my great pleasure to welcome you all to the website of this University. We are trying to make it more and more user friendly. The Challenges to our higher education system, particularly the Universities, are to carve out a path and a strategy for themselves so that they can be effective instruments in the process of transformation of this country. Producing employable graduates is no doubt one of the objectives but I believe that creation of new knowledge and innovative mind should be the focus of higher education system. Keeping this in mind, we are making sincere and committed efforts to develop this University as a well recognized and established centre of higher education. We are striving to produce better graduates with right interests, attitudes, moral and intellectual values.
