Sri Balaji Vidyapeeth Deemed University Logo

One of the most noteworthy features of Sri Balaji Vidyapeeth is the promulgation of unique, objective, job oriented and evidence based courses in complementary and alternative medicine, besides offering conventional undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. There is an exclusive deanery to look into the academic aspects of such programmes and also the cohesive research that goes concomitant with the academics.

UGC lays emphasis on choice based credit courses as a part of academic flexibility vested with the deemed University. Taking cognizance of this, the Dean, Research and Allied Health Sciences has implemented certain novel and job oriented courses in choice based credit system in certain nodal areas that have been less frequented hitherto in other Universities, viz Health Professions Education, Yoga Therapy and Music Therapy.

SBV takes pride in stating that doctoral programmes exist in crucial and inter-disciplinary courses / subject areas. Recently an MoU with IMC, KREMS, AUSTRIA has been effected with reference to the PhD Programme in Music Therapy. Incidentally IMC, KREMS is having collaborations with several foreign Universities at UG and PG levels. However, SBV is the first University with which IMC, KREMS has entered into an agreement for Doctoral Research in Music Therapy.
