Welcome to the Website of Hijli College, an institution where excellence is tradition. Hijli College is for those who shall be pioneers, for those who shall experiment with the cutting edge of contemporary thought and creative expression, for those who shall dare give shape to their aspirations and cherished dreams.
At Hijli College we believe that each student is special and has the potential to excel in many different ways. Then the touchstone of all our programmes is active engagement that nurtures individual talent. We impart formal education with a difference even as we work within the constraints of a traditional university system. Through carefully crafted interaction and activities within and outside the classroom, we provide experiences that help the student discover innate capabilities, set life-long goals and proactively work towards their fulfilment.
Hijli College is reputed for providing quality liberal education in the humanities and the basic sciences. The academic life is rigorous and designed to lay a firm conceptual foundation and provide professional expertise necessary for adapting to the challenging work place. The college has as its excellent infrastructure; the teaching laboratories and general facilities. The faculty is experienced, committed, distinguished and the support staffs, the backbone of the college, is dedicated. The teaching-learning programmes are marked with personal mentoring; students are encouraged work in collaborative teams and learn from peers. The emphasis is on innovative teaching strategies that provide experiential learning through project work, field work and case studies.

The students can pursue these in conjunction with their regular course of studies.
Life at Hijli College, however, is not just an academic fire-wall. At any time, the campus remains suffused with vibrant energy as the entire community revels in the creative pursuit of co-curricular activities with equal vigour. Then there can be no better place than Hijli College to spend your formative years.

I find it extremely exciting and satisfying to be a member of the Hijli College community. As a Principal, I view my role as a catalyst to provoke and draw the best of the inherent and latent potential of the Hijli College community. I welcome the new batch of students to grab this opportunity and to take ownership of this institution and embark on this ennobling journey of life-enhancing education.
