UGC Now Allows Students to Pursue 2 Degree Courses at a time
Recently, the UGC clarified in a meeting about giving the approval to pursue 2 degree courses simultaneously. Students can pursue 2 courses physically from the same university or from different universities. UGC will pass a circular shortly regarding the same.
“As announced in the new National Education Policy (NEP) and in order to allow students to acquire multiple skills, UGC is coming up with new guidelines to allow a candidate to pursue two degree programmes in physical mode simultaneously. The degrees can either be pursued from the same or different universities,” Mr Kumar said at a press conference.
Mr Kumar also mentioned that the students will also be allowed to pursue two degree programmes in physical and online mode simultaneously.
