UGC approves Draft Curriculum and Credit Framework for Postgraduate programs

 

Draft Curriculum and Credit Framework for Postgraduate programs approved by the University Grants Commission

 

The University Grant Commission in its meeting on November 3 has approved the Draft Curriculum and Credit Framework for Postgraduate programs that provides flexibility for students to switch from one discipline to another with ease. . In addition to the existing two-year master programs, the Commission will also introduce one-year master’s programs. The commission will make the document public in a couple of days to seek feedback from the stakeholders.

As per the latest regulations, students who pass the entrance exams will have the opportunity to pursue a master’s degree in a discipline unconnected to their undergraduate specializations. Students who qualified their undergraduate degrees with a double major may choose to pursue master’s degrees in any one of their two major subjects. Additionally, students who pass the undergraduate degree with a major and minor are eligible to pursue the major or minor (s) in the master’s programme

On Thursday, UGC Chairman Prof. M Jagadesh Kumar while talking to media said, “The new framework allows the students to do their master’s in any stream they choose as a major or minor in their UG program. In addition, they can also pursue a master’s degree in a discipline that is unconnected with their UG specializations, provided the student demonstrates competence by qualifying in an entrance test like CUET-PG,”.

Additionally, the Commission made admissions to ME, M.Tech, and related fields possible for students who successfully finished four-year UG, three-year UG, two-year PG, or five-year integrated programs (UG PG) in STEM topics. There is an exit option provided to students enrolled in two-year postgraduate programs after the first year. Such students will be awarded a postgraduate diploma.
