The university is already busy working to frame a student-oriented degree course, likely to be implemented from next year for first-year students.

What the DU Four year Degree Programme will Offer:

The new syllabus will be project-oriented and hands-on, offering greater flexibility of choice, plus there will be better system to take care of sports and extracurricular activities. The other salient points of teh new programme will be an integrated syllabi, flexibility to opt for varied subjects, quality IT capability, project, field work and internship opportunities in every discipline.

The plan for the four-year programmes involves credit points system and various exit options for students. Students will be awarded credit points for both academics as well as extra-curricular activities. The credit system is not new as many universities in India have credit transfers including the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) and Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU).

Students in the new scheme will have exit options. If they opt to exit after two years, it will be a diploma. After third year, it will be a general degree and an honours degree on completion of the full programme.
