The University allocates majority of its budget for academic programs. Students are admitted either on the basis of entrance test or merit. Many departments and all the Constituent Colleges have their own library in addition to the Central Library. Modern teaching methods and teaching aids are employed for effective teaching involving blending of teaching techniques to suit specific needs of a course (interactive participation of students, tutorials, brainstorming sessions, case studies, collaborative learning and active learning strategy). The emphasis is given on problem solving and skills in critical- thinking.

Evaluation of the students is done on an objective basis. Examiners and Co-examiners are appointed for this purpose by the respective BOS. The method of evaluation has undergone changes recently to accommodate new trends. Opportunity for re-evaluation is also given to the students.Question papers are set by senior faculty members and the external examiners appointed by the Board of Studies. University adheres to the academic calendar and the results are declared within a month of the last examination.
