With less than a month to go for the application process at Delhi University to begin, the admission process for courses in journalism and management studies is still unclear to most students as well as college teachers.

The colleges that deal with these two departments are yet to come out with any notification about the mode of entrance so far.

“The university had earlier asked students to register for the management courses separately but that was later scrapped. Since then, we have been waiting for further notification but nothing has come up so far,” said Shivam Rawat, a DU aspirant.

The teachers, too, seem confused. “We have not heard anything concrete so far. We hope the picture becomes clearer by next week,” said a teacher, on condition of anonymity. 

The university has already scrapped the common entrance test for English after no college showed any interest in holding it this year due to the late notification and shortage of time.   

According to sources in the university, admission to both the courses is going to happen through entrance tests. Students will have to apply separately for the courses. The schedule for admission, however, is yet to be decided.

While the new journalism course will be offered in six colleges, the management studies course, which was formulated after merging the BBS, BBE and BFIA courses, will be offered by 10 colleges.

 The decision on the admission schedule is likely to be taken early next week. The three management courses earlier were under the Faculty of Applied Social Sciences and Humanities but will now fall under the Faculty of Management Studies (FMS). 

The new journalism course has also been made by merging two courses, namely Journalism (honours) and BA (honours) in mass communication, which was offered only by IP College.
