Explained: What’s new in the draft Undergraduate Curriculum Framework 2022 released by Delhi University

The Delhi University (DU) on Friday released a draft Undergraduate Curriculum Framework 22 (UGCF-2022) keeping in line with the National Education Policy (NEP) and has invited feedback on it from stakeholders till January 30. The new UG curriculum will come into force from next year when the university shifts to a four-year undergraduate programme (FYUP).

What is the new UGCF-2022?

The UGCF provides the curriculum framework that will be adopted in the 2022-23 academic session when DU shifts to an FYUP. This, however, does not include the syllabi for courses, which is prepared independently. The objective of the UGCF is to “align with the NEP” so as “to promote each student’s holistic development in both academic and non-academic spheres”, “provide flexibility to students so that learners have the ability to choose their learning trajectories and programmes”, “eliminate harmful hierarchies among disciplines/fields of study and silos between different areas of learning”, among others. The UGCF is an attempt to include two of the most talked about features of the NEP – multi-disciplinarity and multiple exit points (leaving the course at the end of each year with a different degree).
