DU Increases Number of Seats First Time in 8 Years. Will Take 2,330 More Students

Delhi University has decided to increase its intake of students in the next academic session. This is the first time in eight years that DU has taken such step. 

One of the most prestigious universities in India, Delhi University, has decided to increase the number of students in its undergraduate courses for the firs time in eight years.

A total of 2,330 seats will be added across various colleges and courses in the next session. However, certificate, postgraduate, engineering, and nursing programmes will not be part of this increase.

The step will give more opportunities for students to get a seat in popular courses like Bachelor of Business Studies (BBS), History and English.

The number of seats in B.Sc (Hons) Mathematics will now be increased by 322 in the next admission cycle. Other courses increasing the number of seats are B.Sc (Hons) Computer Science and B.A. (Hons) History with 230 seats each.

Other popular subjects for which there will be more intake are Physics, English, Geography, and BBS with 138 seats each, and Chemistry with 128 seats.

The increase in seats will first have to be sanctioned by the University Grant Commission (UGC)

The academic council’s standing committee has also recommended that 35 new courses be added in the university, provided colleges have full time faculty and infrastructure available to support such a move.

A new course in forensic science will be launched at SGTB Khalsa College. Also, Kamala Nehru College will become the first college to offer BA (Hons) in French.

Though the increase in seats will increase the workload on the colleges and require more faculty positions, it will also give much needed relief to hundreds of students who wait to get a seat Delhi University.
