UGC allows students to pursue two degree courses at the same time

After receiving nod to a proposal in this regard, the UGC Chairman M Jagadesh Kumar confirmed that the University Grants Commission (UGC) allowed the students to pursue two-degree courses simultaneously from the same or either different university.



The University Grants Commission (UGC) on Tuesday announced that students have now been allowed to pursue two-degree courses simultaneously. The development comes after the University Grants Commission (UGC) gave its nod to a proposal in this regard, UGC Chairman M Jagadesh Kumar said on Tuesday.

Speaking at a press conference, Jagadesh Kumar said as announced in the new National Education Policy (NEP) and in order to allow students to acquire multiple skills, the UGC is coming up with new guidelines to allow a candidate to pursue two-degree programmes at the time from the same or either the different university.

The students will also be allowed to pursue two-degree programmes in physical and online mode simultaneously, Kumar said.

The move will benefit thousands of students. It will have a long-lasting impact on higher education that will pave the way for students to join two academic programmes at the same time and earn multiple degrees.

The commission has also put together a set of guidelines regarding the same, which will be put up on the official website of UGC tomorrow. Earlier, the candidate could only pursue one full-time degree along with online/short-term/diploma courses under the UGC regulations.

In its latest meeting, the UGC approved simultaneous dual degrees for students in India. As per the new regulations, a student could complete courses either at the same university or from different universities at the same time.

The commission will soon issue detailed guidelines in this regard. The guidelines will apply to all the programmes available across the country.
