Aliah University is a minority university of West Bengal in India. As per Aliah University Act 2007, Section 3 (3), it has been conferred the status of a minority educational institution. Aliah University has with it the rich heritage of Madrasah-i-Aliah or Calcutta Madrasah. By an act passed by the West Bengal Legislature (West Bengal Act XXVII of 2007) Calcutta Madrasah College has been upgraded to Aliah University. Calcutta Madrasah was established in 1780 by the first Governor General of India, Warren Hastings, who called it Mohammedan College of Calcutta. Thus, one of the oldest centers of higher learning and culture, the institution is steeped in history. Aliah University is located in Salt Lake, the prime area of West Bengal’s capital Kolkata. The university aims to provide courses of Islamic theology and Arabic.

Also the library is trying hard to include latest books in the field of science, engineering, management, and social sciences. Aliah University admissions are done on the basis of entrance exam conducted by the university. It has special quota for the Muslim minority students and fees collected is also very less. Aliah University Admission Test (AUAT) has to be qualified in order to take post graduate and Ph.D admissions.
Aliah University campus don’t have fully developed labs and workshops. But laboratories and workshops are being developed speedily so that the students may benefit more. Acquisition of 65 acres of land is also under progress. State-of-art language laboratory for English and Arabic departments is under construction. It offers scholarships to the Madrasah students. Aliah University vocational courses are also very attractive to pursue as they are related to skill development in various areas. We recommend this university for Muslim minority students who want to study Arabic and Islamic theology.
