NEW DELHI: The Academic Council of Delhi University will meet on November 22 to discuss the syllabi for the second semester of four-year undergraduate programmes based on the Undergraduate Curriculum Framework.

Resolutions in this regard were put forward by the university's standing committee during its last meeting on October 12. The resolutions will come up for approval at the meeting of the Academic Council. In this, the statutory body will consider the recommendations of the standing committee on academic matters on the second-semester syllabus for core and elective courses framed by more than 50 departments.

The agenda does not yet contain syllabi from some departments such as sociology and Hindi. The Academic Council will discuss the syllabi of 100 undergraduate courses, including BA business economics (Hons), BA multi-media and mass communication (Hons), BSc electronic science (Hons) and BSc microbiology (Hons).

If approved by the Academic Council, the matter will be taken up by varsity's Executive Council, its top decision-making body. The university had approved only the first-year syllabi earlier this year. A new curriculum has been implemented from the 2022-23 academic year after the Executive Council, in February, approved an Undergraduate Curriculum Framework-2022, as formulated by a National Education Policy cell.

The meeting will also include discussions on increase in the PhD thesis submission fee from Rs 3,000 to Rs 5,500 for students without fellowships, and from Rs 5,000 to Rs 7,500 for those with fellowships. In addition, it will be considering increasing the remuneration for thesis evaluation from Rs 1,500 to Rs 5,000 for Indian examiners and from Rs 1,500 to $100 for foreign examiners.

At the time of conducting admissions, the university had only finalised the first semester syllabi for its various programmes. First-semester classes began on November 2 and will end in March. Classes for the second semester will begin in March and run till July.
