For students looking for options beyond Delhi University, this is going to be a busy week.


There are only a few days are left to go before applications close at Ambedkar University. Naturally, officials at the university are expecting the number of applications to go up in the remaining few days.

Admissions at the university, which offers both Bachelor’s and Master’s programmes, began on May 25. The last date for submission of forms is June 20.

The university offers attractive options for students. Its BA programme is either a three-year single major or four-year dual major honours course.

The first year of study for all students is similar, with papers in humanities, social sciences and basic math. The courses are also highly interdisciplinary. Students have the flexibility to choose their main discipline of study after a year.

The university offers 35 seats in each course and, being a state university, reserves 85% of them for students from Delhi.

The university was started in 2008 by the Delhi government and has campuses at Kashmere Gate and Dwarka.

This year, applications must be made online and there are no paper forms. An application form can be used to apply for as many BA programmes as the applicant wishes. Similarly, the MA form can be used to apply to multiple courses.

Students who don't have easy access to the Internet have been given the option of visiting the university campus at Kashmere Gate or Dwarka to fill the forms. Application fees can be paid in cash at the two campuses or through a demand draft drawn in favour of Ambedkar University, Delhi, payable at New Delhi.
