It is a great privilege for me to welcome you all to the new and revamped website of Burdwan Raj College, a college which carries the rich legacy of a hundred and forty years and counting.

As one of the oldest colleges in the state of West Bengal, our Institute is counted among the premier institutes of higher learning combining tradition, continuity and innovation in the pursuit of excellence in higher education.

We, at Burdwan Raj College, always strive to provide quality education for the holistic development of every student. Our sprawling campus situated in the nerve-centre of the town is an oasis of greenery spread across seventeen acres of land providing perfect ambiance for inclusive education. Being a constituent College of the University of Burdwan, we offer adequate infrastructure for teaching-learning mainly in the undergraduate level offering honours courses in 23 different subjects from humanities, science and commerce streams. Besides, Bengali literature is taught at the PG level. We also offer the scope for studying BBA and BCA honours courses under professional education category. The College also runs a full-fledged study centre of the NSOU.

Within our limited infrastructure, we also encourage research activities. Many of our faculty members have won laurels in international and national levels with their valuable and original research contributions. Our diligent, dedicated and highly qualified group of educators are ever prepared to provide proper guidance to students of diverse socio-economic backgrounds coming from different parts of the state and beyond. We do also cater to a limited number of international students. The College boasts of a rich collection of books in its central library. It has well-equipped science laboratories which help students acquire hands on knowledge. We also offer special incentive to sportspersons. Many of our students have been regulars in state and national squads of their respective disciplines besides representing the University. The College also has a fully equipped muti-gym. We provide hostel facility for a limited number of needy and meritorious students through one Girls' and two Boys' hostels.

Burdwan Raj College prides itself as always working as a family through many of the ups and downs in its long and illustrious history with the calm determination of overcoming all odds to create an environment conducive for imparting quality education with a keen eye to inculcate high moral values among the taught. We attach great importance in having a healthy academic life in the campus where co-operation and competition mutually co-exist. Maintaining discipline inside our altar of learning has always been the utmost priority. The College has ever been alive to keeping in close contact with the society at large and having a favourable corporate life. The activities carried out by the NSS and NCC units of the College illustrate the same to the core. Our all-round achievements are adequately reflected in the College having been accredited with NAAC with B++ grade.

Burdwan Raj College is always recognized as an excellent academic institution where learning goes hand in hand with instilling values that transform human beings, for the betterment of society. It has produced a galaxy of eminent personalities in various fields of arts, science, commerce and not the least, politics and administration. The long list of luminous personalities speaks a lot about the College, its aims, objectives and achievements. Mere education for education’s sake is not our goal; education with a mission to strengthen human bond in the larger perspective of the globe is our main emphasis. The College always feels the need for values that can unite human beings in a society which is increasingly being torn asunder by disquiet, disorder and disintegration.
