On Wednesday,the application process for admission to undergraduate and post-graduate programmes at Delhi University’s School of Open Learning (SOL) began. The SOL makes distance learning possible. Also, it provides a variety of courses to students. The last date of admission will be October 31.
In a notification, the university said admissions in UG courses being offered in SOL will only be based on Class 12 results. This clearly contrasts to the admission process at Delhi University’s constituent colleges wherein admissions are on the basis of Common University Entrance Test (CUET) from this year.
From the academic session, 2022-23, all UG and PG admissions at SOL will be done in the Department of Distance and Continuing Education. The varsity has established the Department of Distance and Continuing Education, Faculty of Open Learning and Open Learning Development Centre under the aegis of the Campus of Open Learning/School of Open Learning.
The department also adopts the Undergraduate Curriculum Framework 2022 under NEP – 2022. It offers courses in arts, humanities and commerce and management merit streams of study at the undergraduate (UGCF 2022) as well as postgraduate levels.
Moreover, Delhi University on Monday launched six new courses in the School of Open Learning (SoL), with an aim of providing job-oriented programmes. From this academic session, the undergraduate degree will be three or four years of graduation, with multiple exit options within this period, with an appropriate certificate/diploma, as per the prospectus.
