About APG, Shimla University
FAPG Shimla University aspires to be the paragon of the comprehensive educational institution of the new century by fusing together a holistic teaching philosophy with innovative course content. Our students will thrive, develop, and grow at APG Shimla because of our confidence and belief in the value of our unique holistic philosophy; the nonpareil quality and scope of our courses; the pre-eminence of our faculty; our commitment to fostering a diverse, flexible, and collaborative culture; and the cutting-edge facilities and infrastructure ensconced in the pristine environs of our campus.
What is fundamentally unique about APG Shimla is holistic teaching philosophy: we do not think that the mind exists as an independent entity, but, rather, as an indivisible part of a more complex whole. This is why we believe that it is just as important to exercise the body and spirit as well. We also unwaveringly believe that gaining knowledge of just one particular subject is not enough in today's hypercompetitive world. Hence, besides providing its students with a faculty par excellence, APG Shimla also offers yoga classes and breathing technique tutorials along with the opportunity to choose from a wide range of foreign language options. APG Shimla has also integrated music therapy into its curriculum.
