Significance of PG Extension Centre There are 25 Colleges (both aided and self finance) affiliated to the Manonmaniam Sundaranar University providing higher education to the pupil of Kanyakumari District. Eventhough, 32,700 students are pursuing under graduate courses in different colleges in Kanyakumari District, but only 5,110 (15.63%) are opting for Post Graduate level courses due to low level access to higher education. However, the aspirants for PG courses are very high but the opportunities are very limited, since several colleges those who provide PG and M. Phil. are charging more fee than the University.
