The glory of the Nalanda University (NU) is back after 800 years. On September 1, 2014, NU began its session with an inaugural class.
The first batch of students has been named ‘Nalanda Pioneers’ by the administration. Out of the seven schools planned, currently NU has started with two schools – School of Ecology and Environment Studies and School of Historical Studies with students and professors hailing from India and foreign nations.
Countries like China, Myanmar, Laos, Australia, Singapore and 10 others have extended financial aid to NU for infrastructure projects. The Japanese government will also help in the construction of Gaya –Rajgir NH-82 in a mark of help to the university.
