The Delhi University is trying to bring a big reform in the post-graduation level from the next academic year. The purpose of this programme is to enable students, who pursue the four-year under graduate programme, get master’s degree in one year in credit-based system. Students will also have the flexibility to choose their courses.
Dinesh Singh, Vice Chancellor of DU stated, on the completion of a year of FYUP, minor changes will be done in the foundation courses. He also plans to introduce grand projects in the first year which will be trans-disciplinary. He also said that the proposed PG reform has to be ratified by the university’s academic and executive councils. He also said that university was working on a system where a UG student can earn extra credits in his/her fourth year which will be beneficial at the PG level.
It is a credit-based system at the PG level that could enable a student of a four-year undergraduate system to get a Master’s degree in one year.
The university is also planning to introduce trans-disciplinary PG programmes in a meta-department environment.
The V-C said the university is working on these plans and the committees will be announced soon.
