Mumbai: HR, KC colleges now under new HSNC University

Students seeking admissions to HR and KC colleges this year will have to apply to HSNC (Hyderabad Sind National Collegiate Board) State University, as they are no longer part of Mumbai University from this academic session. On Thursday, the university was virtually launched by governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari, who is also the chancellor of the university. HSC pass-outs will have more courses to choose from at HSNC University. The fees for some of the courses will go up by 10%, said the provost of the university, Niranjan Hiranandani.

HSNC State University is the first in the city to be managed by a private trust. The university will offer niche courses, such as BSc in Yoga and Bachelors in Performing Arts. It will start operations in the coming week, said KC college principal Hemlata Bagla.
