Mount Carmel College in Bengaluru, a renowned women's college for 75 years, is undergoing a significant transformation. Starting from the upcoming academic year, the institution will become fully co-educational, opening all undergraduate and postgraduate programs to male students. While some postgraduate courses were opened to boys in 2015, this marks the first time that all courses will be accessible to them. The decision aligns with the college's aim to attain deemed university status. The college management has not yet specified the percentage of seats reserved for boys. The move is seen as an effort to foster a diverse student body and achieve a balance between male and female representation. The transition to a co-educational institution is expected to be gradual, and applications are now being invited from eligible students for the upcoming academic year. The decision was finalized during a meeting with the registrar and deans after contemplating the change for several years.
