If you will be applying to Delhi University this year, but have questions about the admission process, you will be able to get answers from experts on the upcoming Open Days.
“Open Days are held to provide counselling to candidates seeking admission in various undergraduate courses of Delhi University colleges. The counselling sessions will be addressed by some heads of departments, principals of various colleges and subject experts,” said JM Khurana, dean, Students’ Welfare.
Student counsellors will also be present at all centres to help students out.
These counsellors will also give a 40 minute multimedia presentation to explain the process of filling up forms and applying to different colleges.
The presentation will also cover various queries pertaining to courses, reservations and eligibility criteria.
“Open Days go a long way in helping clear students’ doubts. Many a times, we have helped students choose a career path that they are best suited for. Students get to meet teachers and can ask them whatever they want about courses and colleges. Interaction with student volunteers also gives them a good idea about the university,” said a senior university official.

Students aspiring to pursue English (honours) at Delhi University will have to appear for the Combined Aptitude Test for English (CATE).
With 21 colleges, including the Lady Shri Ram College, Kirori Mal College and IP College, opting enrollment through the common test, the university is expecting a large number of applicants this year.
The forms will be available from May 25 till June 4 at all the 21 colleges. In morning colleges, forms will be sold between 10am and 1pm and 2 pm and 4 pm, while in evening colleges, the timings will be between 4 pm and 7 pm.
Students will have to get a demand draft of R350 in favour of the registrar, University of Delhi. The bank draft should be drawn on either State Bank of India, Punjab National Bank, ICICI Bank or HDFC Bank and should be payable in Delhi.
