Delhi University has received more than 2,000 applications at the Foreign Students’ Registry. Amrit Kaur Basra, who heads FSR, stated that among these applications, majority of them have applied for a certificate course in Hindi and FSR has already forwarded a dozen applications to the Hindi department which are mostly from Chinese, Korean and African students. Applications for other certificate and PhD courses have come from more than 65 countries that include Tibet, China, Uzbekistan, Korea, Russia, Bangladesh, Germany and Japan. For foreign applicants, admission process is completed early. Applicants have also shown interest for Faculty of Management Studies.
Officials have declared that students will lose 10 marks from their score paper if they have completed their studies under boards in which theory section in subjects is less than 70
percent. DU will consider subjects as non-academic if theory component in subjects is less than the stated percentage. This new admission policy on vocational subjects can trouble students coming from other states.
