Hyderabad: After a gap of six years, Osmania University will hold its 80th Convocation on June 17, 2019. Candidates, who passed examinations between July, 2012 and June, 2018 only are eligible to apply for their degrees for the forthcoming convocation. However, candidates who obtained their PhD. degrees up to June 11, 2019 will also be given their degrees.
The last convocation was held in Osmania University in 2013 amidst high drama. The intensified agitation for a separate state forced the Andhra Pradesh governor ESL Narasimhan to cancel his scheduled visit to OU. This was the first time in the history of OU that the convocation had to be held in the absence of the chancellor of all the state universities.
All the PhD. degrees and PG/MPhil/PhD gold medals will be presented at the Convocation.
Significantly, the Governor who had cancelled in 2013 because of the agitation, E.S.L. Narasimhan, will be present on June 17 along with Scientist Professor S. Chandrasekhar — Director, Indian Institute of Chemical Technology and an alumnus of Osmania University in the Department of Chemistry. He will deliver the convocation address and confer the degrees.
Eligible candidates are advised to visit the website (www.osmania.ac.in) to register and pay the fee online from May 16, 2019.
The last date for submission of online applications for PhD. candidates is June 11, 2019.
The last date for candidates of PG/UG/Dip. /MPhil. programmes (including those offered by Autonomous Colleges and PGRRCDE is May 31, 2019). Such candidates will not be conferred their degrees at the convocation ceremony.
“The candidates who do not register for the convocation will have to obtain their degree certificates in absentia. But the candidates who have already taken their degree certificates, in absentia, are not eligible to apply. If they do so, the fee paid will not be refunded. However, UG Degree Gold Medals will be awarded at their respective colleges after the convocation,” said the OU authorities.
Degree certificates of candidates who have passed the PG/UG/ Dip./MPhil. programmes in regular mode in the University/Affiliated/ Autonomous Colleges shall be sent by post.
