The newly formed state of Telangana (established on 2 June, 2014) is home to 3 central universities and 14 state-funded universities. Since it was separated from the state of Andhra Pradesh (AP) and has Hyderabad as its capital city, many universities that were previously part of AP, will now fall under the jurisdiction of Telangana.

The Government of India shall establish a Tribal University and a Horticulture University inTelangana over the 12th & 13th Plan period.



The universities and colleges that are part of Telangana now are those that are in cities such as Hyderabad, Warangal, Nizamabad, Karimnagar, Ramagundam, and Nalgonda. The universities of Telangana are renowned and distinguished, offering courses that are recognised for their quality.
