For students who have not scored well in the Class 12 board exams and may not make the cutoff to the top colleges, Delhi University’s Cluster Innovation Centre (CIC) can be a good option to look into.
The admission to the course is through an entrance test and from this year the admission criteria has been changed making it easier to grab a seat at the centre.
CIC was established in 2011 and is known for its innovative course design. It is a centre which practices meta college and meta university concept. It is a concept where students can pursue a course between universities who have collaboration.
Till last year, to get admission at the centre, students had to be admitted in any of the DU colleges. Then students could apply to CIC and admissions used to take place on the basis of the entrance test and interview.
From this year, any student who has passed and appeared for Class 12 examination can apply. Admissions will take place on the basis of the entrance test.
The centre offers post-graduate course in Msc in Mathematics Education. This course is provided under the meta university concept in collaboration with Jamia Millia Islamia. The admission to the course is on the basis of test and interview.
“CIC is a unique and futuristic centre which provides opportunity to students to not only to study but also to explore and understand problems of real world problems happening in the society,” said CIC director MM Chaturvedi.
The last date of application to the courses at CIC is May 31.
