Four Year Undergraduate Program

The University of Delhi introduced the four year undergraduate program scheme in the academic year 2013-14. All undergraduate programs offered by the University of Delhi would thenceforth be for the duration of four years, but with multiple exit options and the inclusion of research components. This reform was intended to provide greater flexibility and wider range of choices to the students.

In June 2014, after a lot of controversy, speculation and protests, the four year undergraduate program was removed according to the directives of the University Grants Commission. All the constituent colleges of the University of Delhi were instructed to return to the previous three year format for first degrees.
