On Wednesday, the Karampura campus of the Ambedkar University Delhi (AUD) was inaugurated by Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia.
The Karampura campus this year, has started undergraduate courses in four subjects "” English, History, Economics, and Humanities and Social Sciences. The academic session of the college is set to begin from August 1. During his speech, Sisodia said, "The fear among students who have completed Class XII exams and their parents about getting admission in colleges if they don't score 98-99 per cent, has to be eradicated. Of the 2.5 lakh students who complete Class XII every year in Delhi, we only have seats for about 1.35 lakh. But that leaves out 1.15 lakh students whose academic future we are responsible for that includes not just me, but vice-chancellors, principals and other officials working for higher education."
As Manish Sisodia also has the charge of the education department, added, "We need to think about quality and take this institution to such heights that every student who graduates from here is respected by reputed international institutions. We don't want to open shops in the name of higher education, but at the same time we also need to concentrate on quantity. There should be enough seats so that parents of every one of the 2.5 lakh students can say: 'we are not worried because we know our child will get admission somewhere'."
After this another announcement regarding the college was made by Vice-Chancellor Shyam Menon as he announced, "The campus would expand further, and a School of Vocational Studies, Centre for Professional and Continuing Education and a Centre for English Language Teaching will be set up."
This will be a moral booster for the students across the nation. Brainbuxa will keep you updated on such news and views. For more, take a halt at Brainbuxa.
