NEW DELHI: Women applicants wanting to take admission in Delhi University can also apply to DU’s Non-Collegiate Women’s Education Board (NCWEB) which offers two undergraduate courses — BA Programme and BCom.

NCWEB, which started its admission process for undergraduate courses on June 1, has gone fully online. From filling the online admission form to paying the admission fee, the board will process everything online.

The last date to fill the application form is June 19.

NCWEB, which admits only female students from Delhi, has a total of 6,084 seats.

The first cutoff list will be released on July 12 and admissions will continue for the next three days after which a second cutoff will be released on July 15. A total of five cutoff lists will be released.

There are 13 DU colleges that function as teaching centres for NCWEB, including Hansraj College and Jesus and Mary College. The classes are conducted only on Sundays.

“NCWEB, which only offers two undergraduate courses, is preferred by students who want to pursue professional courses such as diploma while pursuing an undergraduate degree to become more employable by the end of three years,” said Anju Gupta, officiating director NCWEB.

The Non-Collegiate students are, however, not allowed to pursue any other full-time degree course. Students have to submit their original certificates at the time of admission and the annual fee is approximately Rs 3,500 per year. However, no fee is charged from disabled students.

“Women students get enough time to pursue professional courses and even do regular jobs as they are free for six days a week. Our classes only happen on Sundays so these students can do career enhancement courses during weekdays,” Gupta said.

Gupta said NCWEB is fast becoming the first choice of women students with high grades, who want to pursue a profession or any professional course. “Last year also we had many students who had scored above 90 % joining NCWEB,” she said.

Gupta said that NCWEB is also providing its students with the option of taking up skill development courses in association with National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC).

“NSDC is holding skill development classes for students in various courses,” said Gupta.
