The UGC has recently asked Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) to create ‘facilitative mechanisms’ to introduce dual degrees.
The universities will need robust academic planning, including content structures, flexible time schedules and a system of verifiable proofs of enrolments to map students to academic institutions. The UGC allowed students to pursue two academic programmes simultaneously, including physical degrees, online degrees, and even diploma programmes from the same university or two different universities as long as the classes and other academic activities for both degree programmes do not clash. In the course of the year, it was seen that many students were unable to seek admissions in physical mode to dual degree programmes because of the mandatory requirement of submission of migration/school leaving certificates at the time of admission. In Jan 2023, the UGC urged the universities to devise mechanisms facilitating students so that they can pursue two academic courses simultaneously.
