Rashtriya Sanskrit Vidyapeetha (RSVP), a university established under section 3 of UGC Act, 1956 is a premier institution in the field of higher learning in Sanskrit studies, Traditional Shastras and pedagogy. It is funded by the Ministry of Human Resource Development through UGC.


                 The Vidyapeetha was established at Tirupati(AP) in 1961 by the Govt. of India on the recommendations of Sanskrit Commissions (1957) as an autonomous body under the name of Kendriya Sanskrit Vidyapeetha, Society. Dr. S.Radhakrishnan, the then Vice-president of India laid foundation stone of the Vidyapeetha on 14th January 1962. The basic objective of setting up the Vidyapeetha is to impart and improve Sanskrit Pedagogy, to accelerate the pace of higher Sanskrit Learning.


                 Later, in the year 1971, it was taken over by the Rashtriya Sanskrit Sansthan, an autonomous body established for the development of Sanskrit in India, under the Ministry of Education. In addition to pedagogy and research teaching wing was also started. In the year 1987, the Vidyapeetha was declared as a deemed university, by the Govt. of India, considering its service to the cause of Sanskrit Education, achievements in research and publications and general progress in the past 25 years. Considering its achievements and potentials for research in Traditional Shastras, the university was given the status of Centre of Excellence in Traditional Shastras during the X and XI plan period as well.


                 The Vidyapeetha offers courses covering a wide range of Traditional Shastras, and a combination of Traditional Shastras with modern subjects like Mathematics, Computer Science, History etc., at Sastri/B.A. and Prak-shastri levels.


                 Since its inception, the vidyapeetha is conducting Shiksha-Shastri (B.Ed.) course and started Shiksha-Acharya (M.Ed.) course in the year 1983. Along with these courses it offers M.Phil. and Ph.D. courses in Education and other Shastras. Considering the awesome academic records of the Vidyapeetha, the Govt. of India has sanctioned Institute of Advanced Study in Education in the year 1997.


                Thus, the Rashtriya Sanskrit Vidyapeetha was established mainly to develop a new pedagogy, a hybrid of modern methods of language teaching, traditional methods of Language Teaching, traditional methods of teaching of Sanskrit and to provide pre-service teacher training for secondary school teachers and the IASE was established for the qualitative improvement in the areas of teacher training, i.e. pre-service, In�service and Research.


                 The faculty of Education of this University conducts regular seminars, workshops and faculty Development programmes to enable the faculty members to upgrade their knowledge. The faculty of Education was selected for the sanction of the SAP on the basis of its work, academic achievement and viable potential for future development.


                The National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) has accredited the Vidyapeetha at A+ and IASE at A level for the years (2003-2008). At present the Vidyapeetha is Re-accredited at A level in the year 2015 and it is in the first place among the language universities.
