Setting up of new teaching center by the Non-Collegiate Women's Education Board (NCWEB) has led the increase in the seats by 500 as a result more students will be able to study under non-collegiate courses of DU from this academic year. The new center has been established at the Deen Dayal Upadhyay College and with this, the count of total number of teaching centers stands at 26 and intake capacity at 12,200.
According to the reports from the HT, the NCWEB is one of the non-formal education centers established under DU where the female candidates hailing from Delhi-NC region can get admission and study either BA or BCom programs or postgraduate courses. Assigned on the basis of cut-offs these female students have to attend the classes only once a week.
Currently, NCWEB offers BA and BCom courses, MSc (Mathematics) and MA in 13 subjects but in order to get admission into these centers, students are required to clear the cut-off as established by the teaching centers. The first cut-off list for the NCWEB will be released on July 1.
Reasons to choose non-collegiate program
- It is a low cost program
- Utilizes existing infrastructure and institutes on Saturdays, Sundays and during Academic breaks.
Dr Anju Gupta, NCWEB director said, "Advantage to students opting for NCWEB is that they can apply for other part-time courses and jobs, provided they meet the minimum attendance criteria. However, non-collegiate students are not allowed to pursue any other full-time course".
"I'm pursuing a non-collegiate BCom programme along with CA. As both the courses are related, I find it really easy to manage," said Archita, a student.
