Punjab Agricultural University (PAU) has announced the start of applications for its Undergraduate and Postgraduate Programs for Semester I of the academic year 2024-25. The call, directed towards residents of Punjab and the Union Territory of Chandigarh, extends to a range of academic opportunities in agriculture and its allied fields.

Dr. Satbir Singh Gosal, Vice-Chancellor of PAU, highlighted the university's distinguished lineage and contributions. PAU, modeled after the esteemed Ohio State University - A Land Grant University in the USA, is dedicated to advancing teaching, research, and extension education in agriculture.

Dr. Gosal emphasized PAU's pivotal role in Punjab's agricultural and human resource development, positioning it as a key catalyst for progress in the region and one of Asia's premier Agricultural Universities. PAU's legacy is further evidenced by the establishment of six other State Agricultural Universities in India, making it a beacon of agricultural excellence.

Dr. TS Riar, Additional Director Communication, underscored PAU's eminence in agricultural education. Established in 1962, PAU is acclaimed as the nation's foremost institution for agricultural teaching, research, and extension. The university's stellar performance is reflected in its top ranking among State Agricultural Universities and its impressive standing in the Agriculture and Allied Sector, according to the National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) 2023.

PAU conducts its academic programs through five constituent colleges in Ludhiana, including the College of Agriculture, College of Horticulture, College of Agricultural Engineering & Technology, College of Basic Sciences & Humanities, College of Community Science, and one College of Agriculture at Ballowal Saunkhri. The university currently offers a diverse portfolio of 89 Teaching Programs, encompassing Doctorate, Postgraduate, Undergraduate, Diploma, and Certificate Courses across various disciplines.

In a unique offering, students can enroll in PAU's B.Sc. Hons Agriculture 2+4 year degree program directly after matriculation. This pathway involves initial study at Institutes of Agriculture (IOA) in Gurdaspur and Bathinda, equivalent to the 10+2 (Medical stream) standard of the Punjab School Education Board. Subsequently, students transition to PAU to complete the degree program.

Prospective applicants can access detailed information about each course, including admission criteria, entrance tests, intake capacity, and fee details, on the PAU website (www.pau.edu). Additionally, PAU provides scholarships, stipends, and fellowships to deserving candidates based on specified criteria.
