Gujarat is known as Land of Opportunities. Renowned as Model State, Gujarat has made considerable progress in agriculture, industrial development, education etc…Upto 1990, the concept of Self-Financed Education was not known much and seats in the government colleges offering education in technical professional and medical courses such as engineering, pharmacy, computer applications, medicine, ayurved were limited and many students, who hadn’t been able to secure admissions in these courses in government colleges, had to go to other states in search of pursuing higher education. At that time, Parul Arogya Seva Mandal Trust established first self financed homoeopathy college by name “Ahmedabad Homoeopathic Medical College”. From 1990 onwards, the Trust established “Parul Group of Institutions” under which several educational institutions in Limda, Dist: Vadodara were set up offering education in the field of engineering & technology, pharmacy, architecture, homoeopathy, computer application, physiotherapy, nursing and management. Soon, PGI due to its state-of-the-art infrastructural facilities, quality education, placement facilities, became preferred destination for students of Gujarat.

Parul Group of Institutions under an Act of State Legislature viz., Gujarat Private Universities Act, 2009 and Gujarat Private Universities (Second Amendment) Act, 2015 became Parul University on April 21, 2015. I am pleased to state that our journey from PGI to PU has been challenging, fulfilling and satisfactory as Parul University has succeeded in attracting 25, 000 students in pursuing their studies in its 32 educational institutions of which around 800 are foreign students from 49 different countries. Our commitment to provide quality education in various fields coupled with state-of-the-art infrastructural facilties and highly qualified faculty members has yielded rich dividend as several of our students have achieved laurels in their professional and entrepreneurial journey and have credited Parul University for equipping them with the requisite skill sets, knowledge and adequate practical exposure helping them carving niche for themselves.

I firmly believe an academic institution does not merely provide degrees to its students. Instead, it helps its students in developing an inquiring attitude, inquisitive mind and open minded approach in order to assimilate knowledge and disseminate it among all. Our nation is in need of youth who can affect change and contribute to the nation development by channelizing its creative energies. If an academic institution such as ours guides today’s youth, enhances their capabilities by various means such as skill development, education and shows them the right way which shall lead them towards leading a fulfilling and accomplished lives, it can be said that we have done our duty towards our nation and our role as knowledge provide is justified.

It is my privilege to extend a warm welcome to our ignited minds to come and find their calling at Parul University.
