DU Task Force Talks About Four Year Degree Programme at Student Parliament
New Delhi: The members of Delhi University (DU) task force who made the plan for the new four year undergraduate degree programme talked to the students at a Student Parliament and gave them the information about how the whole system will work.
A large number of students, parents, teachers and counselors appeared in the meeting and anxiously asked many questions to the DU task force members about the new format. Students seeking admission in DU have seemed completely messed up with the uncertainty that has surrounded DU admission.
Umesh Rai, Director DU South Campus has discussed the new format of the UG programme with the students and said that the admission procedure will not be changed and similarly to previous year, students will be selected on the basis of their score in Class 12. He further added that the programme, in which selection is used to be made on the basis of admission test, will follow the same procedure.
Students who have attended the student parliament have asked questions about the course structure and possibilities of increasing the cost of education due to the addition of one extra year. Justifying the new format of the University, Dinesh Singh, Vice Chancellor of DU has said that the new system will give freedom to the students for selecting a subject of their choice along with the main subject.
The need and perception of students’ community have exceptionally changed and there are subjects which a student has no interest in studying. The new system will not impose anything on the students and will help them in sharpening their skills so as they can get a job of their own choice after completing the education. Also, students’ communication skills in both Hindi and English languages will be enhanced, Mr Singh has added.
