Delhi University to start 10 new courses: Here’s the list
All students struggling to study in Delhi University can now hope for getting admission.
DU UG Admission for the academic session 2017-18 was tentatively scheduled to start by the end of March this year. The admission notification is not out though but is expected to begin soon. The CBSE board exams are over and more than a lakh students would soon queue up to Delhi University for admission to 77 affiliated colleges.
The University of Delhi is all set to introduce 10 new honours courses under its School of Opening Learning (SOL) initiative.
The courses will include undergraduate as well as vocational courses for the upcoming academic session. Courses like Bachelor of Vocation in human resource management are being introduced.
Students from across the country endeavour to get enrolled in Delhi university. Hence, these new courses will provide opportunities for students to get into DU.
According to Director of School of Opening Learning CS Dubey, the course structure and syllabus have already been prepared.
The courses will have to be approved by the university and the distance education board before starting the programmes, HT reported.
“When we studied the number of applications received for these courses, we found that many students had applied but only a limited number got admission.
“There is a lot of demand for these courses among students so we are providing a chance for students to study these courses through distance medium,” it quoted Dubey as saying.
Here is the list of courses:
- 1. BSc (honours) mathematics
- 2. BA (honours) history
- 3. BA (honours) economics
- 4. BA (honours) Hindi
- 5. BA (honours) psychology
- 6. BA (honours) Sanskrit
- 7. BA (honours) Hindi journalism
- 8. BVoc in human resource management
- 9. BVoc in office management and secretarial practices
- 10. BVoc in marketing management and retail business
Every year, SOL admits 1.5 lakh students to various undergraduate courses.
Commenting on these courses, director of the SOL CS Dubey in a recent HT report said, “The course structure and syllabus has been formed and approved by the GB and was sent to DU for consideration. The university gave us a proforma to fill in the details, which we did and sent it to the university.”
Reasons for Introduction of DU New Courses:
“When we studied the number of applications received for these courses, we found that many students had applied but only a limited number got admission. There is a lot of demand for these courses among students so we are providing a chance for students to study these courses through distance medium,” Dubey added.
Approval of courses:
The courses will now have to be approved by the university administration and then another approval from the distance education board (DEB) will be required before starting the courses, HT reported.
Moreover, earlier this year, Delhi University announced that it is planning to scrap the cut-off system from 2017-18 and likely introduce an entrance test for admissions into undergraduate courses.
