Universities Can Admit Students Twice a Year: UGC Chairman

The University Grants Commission (UGC) has decided to allow Indian universities to admit students twice a year, starting from the academic year 2024-25. This is a significant change from the current system of admitting students only once a year.

The new policy is expected to benefit students who miss the deadline for admission in the traditional July-August session due to various reasons. It will also allow universities to improve their resource management and potentially increase their global competitiveness.

Here are some key points about the new policy:

  • Universities can choose to admit students in January/February or July/August.
  • The policy is not mandatory, and universities can decide whether or not to implement it.
  • Universities that adopt the biannual admission system will need to make changes to their internal regulations.
  • UGC believes this policy will increase enrollment and make India a more attractive destination for international students.
