Students who have been looking forward to take admission in the forthcoming session, 2019-20, of the Delhi University will now have more choices to look forward to as the varsity is all set to introduce 30 new courses in around 20 colleges. The courses are scheduled to be released at both graduation and post graduation level. It was the university’s academic council (AC) that has taken the decision after agreeing to the proposal given by several colleges regarding the same.
The University has also decided to increase the number of already existing seats in courses to 282. Along with this, 10 vocational courses have also been introduced which will present part-time certificates to students in the upcoming sessions. The changes are most likely to mount the demand o teachers too.
