NEW DELHI: Now students will be able to pursue two full-time academic programmes simultaneously either at the same university or from different universities, the University Grants Commission (UGC) chairman M Jagadesh Kumar announced in a virtual meeting today, April 12. UGC will soon issue detailed guidelines in this regard. Kumar said that the Commission in its meeting on March 31 discussed the provision in detail and therefore, UGC decided to issue guidelines enabling students to pursue two academic programmes at the same time. The decision is in line with the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 which emphasizes the need to facilitate multiple pathways to learning, Kumar said. A combination of physical and online mode should be used to give much more freedom to acquire multiple skills, he said.
UGC has framed new guidelines to help students identify their unique potential by taking different courses as part of a physical university. This will offer multidisciplinary and holistic education across domains, Kumar said.
This will empower students to acquire new knowledge across domains, UGC chairman said. The guidelines will come into effect after an announcement on the website of UGC -- ugc.ac.in tomorrow, April 13. The guidelines can be adopted by the governing statutory bodies, and higher education institutions (HEIs), he said. Whether there will be compulsory attendance will be decided by the universities, UGC doesn't mandate it, Kumar said. This is optional to the universities, not mandatory, he added.
