As per the meeting’s agenda obtained by PTI, the Executive Council will also hold discussion on the revised fee structure for undergraduate courses approved by Vice-Chancellor Yogesh Singh in July.

In its last meeting on 3 August, the Academic Council of DU approved the first-semester syllabi of the Four-Year Undergraduate Programmes (FYUP) based on the newly introduced Under Graduate Curriculum Framework (UGCF). It also approved the new process to admit students to undergraduate courses on the basis of Common University Entrance Test (CUET) scores.

According to the agenda, the Executive Council will also deliberate on the recommendations of the Skill Enhancement Courses (SEC) Committee concerning 43 courses to be implemented from academic year 2022-23 under UGCF. In addition, the resolution for the approval of 24 value addition courses to commence from this academic year will be on the table.

The Executive Council will also look into various recommendations proposed by the Academic Council to draft amendments during its last meeting. The Academic Council had suggested that provided the special needs of the students with disability, relevant modifications should be done in the curriculum, mode of instruction and assessment.

The members of the Academic Council also decided that the members of the committee can furnish their suggestions or comments to the Vice-Chancellor at any stage to improve the content of the syllabi.

The Executive Council will decide whether the Vice-Chancellor is authorized to make suitable modifications/additions to these syllabi and to frame the guidelines for a mode of instruction/assessment and examination.
