New Shores has been associated and affiliated with the University of Mysore since 2011 with regard to the Computer Science and Management Studies postgraduate programmes. Upon successful completion of two years’ full-time study and a graduate dissertation, students are awarded a postgraduate degree from the University of Mysore.

The University of Mysore is a public university under the government of India. Founded during the reign of Krishnaraja Wodeyar IV in 1916, its first chancellor was the Maharaja of Mysore. It has a long and proud history: it was the first university outside the domain of the British administration in India, the sixth in India as a whole, and the first ever in Karnataka. It is a state university of the affiliating type and is recognised by the UGC.

The University of Mysore has been ranked very highly by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) of the UGC with an A+ rating. On 29 February 2008, the Government of India identified the university as ‘an Institution of Excellence’ and awarded a special grant of Rs one billion in the 2008-2009 Union Budget.

NB: It is in the interest of students and parents to know that the University of Mysore is often wrongly perceived as KSOU (Karnataka State Open University). New Shores is affiliated with the University of Mysore only, and has no association whatsoever with KSOU.
