Students who aim to take admission in some of the prestigious colleges under Delhi University (DU) will surely be happy to know that they will be able to fill forms for more courses and fight for more seats this year. The reason being, some of the colleges under DU are to start offering new courses this year onward. This will open up to 500 more seats for the potential candidates.

As of now, 63 colleges of DU offer around 54,000 seats and adding more courses from this year onward will add approximately 500 more seats to the present tally. However, the fact worth mentioning here is that these are not new courses altogether but already on offer in some of the DU colleges. It is just that more colleges will start offering them from this year on.

DU Colleges will start offering these courses as soon as they get an approval from the University Grants Commission (UGC). The noticeable contribution will come from colleges like Bhim Rao Ambedkar College that will start offering History (Hons) adding 40 more seats to the present count of 872. Shri Guru Tegh Bahadur Khalsa College is to start BMS (46 seats), B.Sc Hons in computer science (46 seats) and forensic science (30 seats).

Daulat Ram College will start B.Sc Hons in Physics and will be able to accommodate 46 more students. As soon as colleges will get go ahead from the UGC, they will start offering courses from this session onwards. So far, the only update some of the colleges have received from UGC is that the courses could be self-financed ones.

However, some of the colleges already have approvals from the universities in their hand but not from the UGC. For example, Indraprastha College for Women is to start Geography and BA Hons Sociology courses from this session. Same is the case with Kalindi College that is to start honours courses in Zoology, Botany, Chemistry and Geography but only after approval from UGC.

Some other colleges like Aryabhatta are to start BSc (Hons) computer science and BA (Hons) in psychology courses. As per the principal of the colleges, they will rationalise the seats from pass courses and reduce the number of seats from 70 to 50 in various courses to distribute the remaining seats to new honours courses. Let’s keep our fingers crossed and wait for the UGC’s approval.
