Giv­ing five days in a week to its stu­dents to pur­sue their am­bi­tions, the Univer­sity of Delhi’s Non-Col­le­giate Women’s Ed­u­ca­tion Board (NCWEB) con­ducts classes over the week­end for women stu­dents re­sid­ing in the Cap­i­tal. With more than 12,000 stu­dents on its rolls, the board helps sev­eral stu­dents who can­not join reg­u­lar col­lege for var­i­ous rea­sons to pur­sue un­der­grad­u­ate and post­grad­u­ate de­grees.

Un­der­grad­u­ate classes are held at Bharati Col­lege, Janki Devi Me­mo­rial Col­lege, Je­sus and Mary Col­lege, Kalindi Col­lege, Lak­shmi Bai Col­lege, Mata Sun­dri Col­lege, Maitreyi Col­lege, PGDAV Col­lege, Shyama Prasad Mukher­jee Col­lege, Sri Guru Gobind Singh Col­lege of Com­merce, Hansraj Col­lege, Ma­haraja Agrasen Col­lege and Sid­dharth In­ter­na­tional School.

Post­grad­u­ate classes at present are held at the Tu­to­rial Build­ing, Arts Fac­ulty, Univer­sity of Delhi, north cam­pus.
