Wednesday is the last day when students will be able to apply for a seat in Ambedkar University.

The university has already received more than 1,000 applications for the 240 seats offered as part of its undergraduate programmes.

The application procedure for the university, which offers both bachelors and masters programmes, was started on May 25.http://www.hindustantimes.com/Images/Popup/2012/6/20-06-pg6b.jpg

Launched in 2008 by the Delhi government, the university reserves 85% seats for students from Delhi. It has campuses at Kashmere Gate and Dwarka.

The BA programmes offered by the university are unique, with students being given the option of doing a three-year single major or four-year dual major honours degree.

The first year of study for all students is similar, with papers being taught in humanities, social sciences and basic mathematics. The courses are highly interdisciplinary.

Students have the option to choose their main discipline of study after one year. The university offers 35 seats in each course.

Application forms are available online, and there are no paper forms. One application form can be used to apply for several BA programmes.

The application fee, however, has to be paid in cash or through a demand draft drawn in favour of Ambedkar University, Delhi, payable at New Delhi.

The university, which was started as a model institution for higher education, has a small class size for better quality. It also has experienced faculty members, many of whom were earlier part of the Delhi University.
