Delhi University : Revision of syllabus for undergraduate programmes

Delhi University on Wednesday revised all its undergraduate programmes in the light of UGC’s Learning Outcome-based Framework (UGC-LOCF).

It aims to foster quality higher education in academic research, contributing to society,” 


Implementation of all the revised courses will start from the academic session 2019-20.


As per university reports “It is estimated that the revised courses will benefit close to seven lakh undergraduate students who will be seeking admission in 2019; NCWEB, SOL, and regular college students will follow the same curriculum”.


Revision process of undergraduate courses began on 11th March 2019 by conducting a detailed consultative meeting which was attended by all Deans and Heads. The varsity told, “Concerns regarding the proposed schedule were discussed and after deliberations, the proposed schedule was approved. The consensus emerged on the need to revise the curriculum without any further delay. Participation of students in the curriculum revision process has also been ensured,” 


A dashboard has been developed by the Under Graduate Curriculum Revision Committee to enable concerned teachers to work collectively and to share their inputs simultaneously. According to varsity, “Working on the dashboard will create enough opportunities to interact online, thereby reducing considerably need for frequent meetings of members”. The revised schedule states different stages of involvement and approval of the revised curriculum from different statutory bodies of the university.


According to varsity reports, “At a later stage, the entire curriculum will be displayed on the university website to invite feedback from all stakeholders like alumni, teachers, parents, and academia. Suggestions from experts at national and international level will also be solicited”.
