Ambedkar University Delhi notifies admission at College of Art
Meanwhile, Delhi University teachers have urged VC Yogesh Singh to secure the best legal representation for DU in CoA affiliation issue.
NEW DELHI: Dr B R Ambedkar University Delhi (AUD) has notified admissions to the College of Art amid ongoing scuffle regarding its affiliation with the Delhi University. “The online admission process, for the academic session 2022-23, in the undergraduate and postgraduate programmes of College of Art, as a part of Dr B R Ambedkar University, has been initiated and the online registration/application form in the following programmes has started,” said AUD in an official notification.
“The candidates, aspiring for admissions in the aforementioned programmes, in College of Art (GNCTD) may visit the website of the university aud.ac.in,” the university notice read.
The last date to apply to the programmes is June 30. AUD is offering admission to 11 programmes of College of Art including 6 UG programmes and 5 PG programmes. The university has listed down the number of tentative seats available in each course.
The courses are Bachelor of Fine Arts (Applied Art) (131 seats), BFA (Art History) (33 seats), BFA (Painting) (67 seats), BFA (Sculpture) (26 seats), BFA (Printmaking) (34 seats), BFA (Visual Communication) (34 seats), MFA (Applied Art) (15 seats), MFA (Painting) (15 seats), MFA (Sculpture) (15 seats), MFA (Printmaking) (15 seats), and MFA (Visual Communication) (15 seats).
Recently, 11 members of DU Academics for Action and Development urged Vice-Chancellor Yogesh Singh to secure the "best legal representation" for the university in the affiliation matter contending that Ambedkar University is "stealthily snatching" College of Art from DU.
"In the last hearing in Delhi High Court on May 17, due to poor representation on behalf of the DU, the order went in favour of AU. The university has been asked to conduct admission to CoA as part of AUD. We have asked the vice-chancellor for proper representation," said Seema Das, a member of the DU’s Executive Council and one of the authors of the letter.
On May 20, Ambedkar University began the admission process for undergraduate and postgraduate courses in the College of Art. Admissions to the College of Art could not be held during the last academic session due to the affiliation issue.
