UGC to unveil framework for 4-year UG programmes



The University Grants Commission (UGC) has finalised the framework for the
four-year undergraduate programme (FYUGP) that will be implemented in all higher education institutions from the upcoming academic session 2023-24.

According to the UGC, next week, these rules for four-year undergraduate courses will be shared with all universities across the country. Besides all 45 central universities, the FYUGP will also be implemented in most of the state and private universities soon. Apart from this, many deemed universities are also going to give consent for the implementation of the programme.

From 2023-24, where all new students will have the option to opt the four-year undergraduate courses, the FYUGP would likely get the UGC’s approval for old students as well. This means that the students who have taken admission in normal three-year undergraduate courses this year may also get an opportunity to join the four-year degree programme from the next session.

According to the UGC, a four-year undergraduate course will be provided for all students, but students will not be forced to opt for it. If a student wishes, he can continue with the three-year undergraduate course as well.

The entire four-year undergraduate course schedule will soon be made public, according to UGC Chairman M Jagadesh Kumar.
