The Non-Collegiate Women’s Education Board (NCWEB) under Delhi University has decided to admit 5700 extra students from this academic session. The courses offered in the board are exclusively for women. The Board has 13 DU colleges as its centres and offers 6000 seats in various courses to the women candidates. It would further open up 12 new centres to admit 5700 extra students from this academic session. The combined seats now would be 11700 offered through 25 colleges by the board.
Aryabhatta College, B R Ambedkar College, Bhagini Nivedita College, College of Vocational Studies, Miranda House, Ramanujan College and Aurobindo College are few of the newly added colleges as study centres for the board. The NCWEB takes admission of women students from National Capital Territory of Delhi and conducts classes on Sundays.
According to the officiating director of NCWEB, Anju Gupta, “We are adding around 5700 seats to our undergraduate courses. This will help in providing higher education to more girls, who cannot join regular colleges.” Students who want to undergo diploma courses while pursuing an undergraduate degree often prefer the undergraduate courses offered by the NCWEB for better employment opportunities by the end of their courses. Though, the non-collegiate students are not allowed to pursue any other full-time degree courses.
Gupta further added, “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 happen only on Sunday, so these students can do career enhancement courses on weekdays.”
On July 15, the first list of selected candidates would be out depending on the cut off marks of students and the admissions would take place for the next three days. The second cut-off list would be made public on 20 July, 2016. The Board offers BA and B.Com courses for undergraduate students undergoing other courses in colleges. The application process is similar to that off DU in the NCWEB as well. Students need to submit their original certificates at the time of admission. The annual fees for the courses are set to be Rs. 3500 per year and persons with disability would not be charged for the courses.
The courses offered in the Sunday’s provide the adequate mobility to the regular students, making it possible for them to undergo the courses with ease and ensure that they get dual degrees at the same time in two different subjects.
