The Railway University will be based in Vadodara, and offer courses like BSc and BBA, for which 3,500 applications have already been received.

The admissions for seats at the Railway University in Vadodara have begun, and approximately 3,500 applications have already reached the university, according to News18. Classes will begin in August, and if you are interested, be sure to apply before June 30th. The cut-off for the university is 55%, and courses like BBA and BSc are on offer.

university will offer courses related to transport streams and will be linked to all the 300 training institutes in the Railways Ministry. The brainchild of PM Narendra Modi, the university aims to ensure that the research and modernisation of India’s Railways system continues unabated.
Internally called the National Rail Transport University, its classes will commence from the National Academy of Indian Railways, in Gujarat’s Vadodara.
The Indian Express reports that Pramath Sinha (Founder-dean ISB, and co-founder Ashoka University), has been tasked with advising the government on how to set up the university, including advice on making it future-ready and help it to become a centre of excellence in transport-infrastructure engineering.
The Railways will also create a not-for-profit company, under Section 8 of the Companies Act, which shall manage the university.
Students who get accepted are lucky indeed. The National Academy of Indian Railways has a beautiful campus which is situated in the sprawling 55 acres of Pratap Vilas Palace, at Lalbaug, Vadodara. Surrounded by lush, green lawns, the academy, founded in 1930, was designed in the Renaissance style, by CF Stevens, a leading architect of his time, and resonates with the calls of peacocks and migratory birds, in its verdant confines.
