The varsity joined hands with Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority (IRDA) to open the online courses. "The initiative is aimed at bringing eminent persons to lecture on topics of wide interest and contemporary issues and to provide access to people of the twin cities to hear the leading minds of the world," vice-chancellor added.

Further, the venue of these lectures will not be limited to UoH (University of Hyderabad) but will be held in different parts of the city, like Osmania University and in other institutions.

Vice-chancellor stated "The first lecture of this series will be delivered by the Nobel Laureate and leading economist Amartya Sen who will be visiting UoH on 19th December."

Also, another Nobel Laureate and structural biologist Venkatraman Ramakrishnan will visit the university on 20th and 21st December. Aruna Roy will interact with the university faculty on 9th and 10th January.
