In line with the National Education Policy 2020, the University Grants Commission (UGC) has introduced a flexible framework for postgraduate (PG) programmes in India. This includes two-year PG programmes with research-focused second years for three-year Bachelor's graduates, one-year PG programmes for four-year Bachelor's graduates, and integrated five-year Bachelor's/Master's programmes. Students in two-year PG programmes can exit after the first year with a PG Diploma. The curriculum emphasizes core and multidisciplinary fields, allowing students to choose major and minor subjects and offering courses in various learning modes. The framework aims to enhance analytical skills and practical problem-solving, allowing Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) to innovate and align with industry needs.
