This year the Foreign Students’ Registry at Delhi University has received more than 2,000 applications this year for all kinds of courses, from certificate to PhD-level. The head of FSR, Amrit Kaur Basra informs that certificate courses in Hindi are popular in foreign applicants. Applications have come from more than 65 countries, including Korea, Nepal, Tibet, Russia, China, Bangladesh and Uzbekistan. Some even applied from Germany and Japan.
DU had received queries on this at DU Open Days in South Campus.
Similarly dozens of applications for the Hindi department have been received from Chinese and Korean applicants.
Indian Council for Cultural Relations too sponsors students from other countries. There are some applicants for Faculty of Management Studies though they have also applied for Central Aptitude Test. The admission process for foreign applicants ends early. It takes a duration of 4-5 months. Only thing the University has to check whether the applicant’s previous degree are from a recognized University.
In North Campus, officials clarified once again that candidates who’ve studied under boards in which the theory component in a paper is less than 70% will lose 10 marks from their score in that paper. The university’s new admission policy on vocational subjects will mean trouble for many students coming from other states. From this year, DU will consider all subjects in which the theory component is less than 70% as non-academic.
“There are some boards in which the theory part in subjects like physics, chemistry and biology is less than 70%. Those students will lose 10%,” says Malay Neerav, joint-dean, students’ welfare. About 1,000 potential applicants attended the open day at North Campus.
