Since 1932, Victoria Institution (College) has inspired students to discover new opportunities, new challenges and new strengths through a holistic education in a setting dedicated to women. The primary goal of our Institution is to contribute to the public interest by providing high quality education through various academic programmes that shape students into socially committed citizens. Our Institution places the quality of students’ educational experience at the core of its concern and of its strategic plan. At Victoria Institution (College) we believe that each student is special and has the potential to excel in myriad ways.

We offer General and Honours Courses in almost all the major subjects from the Science, Arts and Commerce streams. The teaching-learning programmes are marked with personal mentoring; students are encouraged to work in teams and learn from peers. The college organises meeting between parents and teachers, in presence of the Principal, to discuss the student’s progress. Our College has an excellent infrastructure with well equipped teaching laboratories, a spacious auditorium and a seminar hall with all modern amenities.

In our Institution, safety and security of students is of prime importance. The College is well protected with security guards and CCTVs are installed at all strategic outdoor locations on the college campus. The Institution has an affordable hostel equipped with solar water heater system to provide hot water during winter. The Academic Year 2016-2017 has been a momentous landmark in the journey of Victoria Institution (College). The National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) in its evaluation awarded our College a B+ Grade.

In an age where online education is burgeoning, the college has recognized the need to extend the walls of the classroom in both space and time. Apart from demonstrative lectures we have introduced virtual classrooms which would provide our students with a visual interface that is intuitive and user-friendly. In an increasingly competitive world, these classes would equip the students to achieve their educational and professional goals. The College also has a Placement Cell for providing employment opportunities to graduating students through campus recruitment in various reputed organizations. The Institution has endeavoured to bring an eminent corporate house like TCS for campus selections.

Victoria Institution (College) is alma mater to an illustrious line of worthy women who have excelled in their respective fields. I am confident that our students will seize the opportunity provided by this stimulating environment and they will enrich themselves to build a better future. On behalf of the entire (teaching and non-teaching) community of Victoria Institution (College), I welcome all the students and extend my good wishes to them and pledge to give our best to fulfil their dreams.
