Ambed­kar Uni­ver­sity Delhi (AUD) is invit­ing ap­pli­ca­tions from as­pi­rants as part of its ad­mis­sion process for the aca­demic ses­sion 2015-16.

The f i rst cut- of f l i st will be re­leased on July 8, 2015. Ap­pli­ca­tion fee for BA pro­grammes are ₹ 330 for gen­eral cat­e­gory and ₹ 130 for re­served cat­e­gory. Lat­eral ad­mis­sions to BA (hons) pro­grammes are al­lowed from other in­sti­tu­tions in the sec­ond year.

The uni­ver­sity is broadly struc­tured into schools for Devel­op­ment Stud­ies, Ed­u­ca­tion Stud­ies, School of Hu­man Ecol­ogy, School of Hu­man Stud­ies, School of Un­der­grad­u­ate Stud­ies, School of Cul­ture and Cre­ative Ex­pres­sions, School of De­sign, School of Busi­ness, P u bl i c Po l i cy a n d S o c i a l En­trepreneur­ship, School of Law, Gov­er­nance and Cit­i­zen­ship ( ex­pected to start soon), and School of Lib­eral Stud­ies.

The uni­ver­sity of­fers a bas­ket of cour­ses with max­i­mum flex­i­bil­ity and spe­cial in­ter­est cour­ses. It has an in­no­va­tive and par­tic­i­pa­tory as­sess­ment struc­ture and uses newer and in­no­va­tive teach­ing meth­ods and ped­a­gogic tools. Fee waivers and schol­ar­ships are of­fered to de­serv­ing stu­dents.

The ad­mis­sion process is both off­line and on­line. Can­di­dates ap­ply­ing for math­e­mat­ics must have ob­tained a min­i­mum of 65% in Class 12 ex­am­i­na­tion from a recog­nised board. Those ap­ply­ing for BA (hons) English should have se­cured a min­i­mum of 65% in English in the 10+ 2 ex­am­i­na­tion. The to­tal in­take in ev­ery BA pro­gramme is 35. There will be a to­tal of 245 seats for all bach­e­lor’s pro­grammes for the aca­demic ses­sion 2015-16 with 85% reser­va­tion for stu­dents from the NCT, Delhi; the rest 15% seats are open for stu­dents from out­side Delhi.

For stu­dents ap­ply­ing for the MA pro­gramme, the can­di­date must have a bach­e­lor’s de­gree with a min­i­mum of 45% or 50% marks as the case may be in dif­fer­ent pro­grammes from a recog­nised uni­ver­sity in any dis­ci­pline. The to­tal in­take this year in most MA pro­grammes is 42. The Non- Col­le­giate Women’s Ed­u­ca­tion Board ( NCWEB) is invit­ing ap­pli­ca­tions for its next aca­demic ses­sion for the BA (pro­gramme) and BCom cour­ses at all its teach­ing cen­tres.

Can­di­dates can reg­is­ter for th­ese cour­ses through pre-ad­mis­sion forms which can be bought along with ad­mis­sion pam­phlet till June 24, 2015 from four teach­ing cen­tres — Kalindi Col­lege, SPM Col­lege, Ma­haraja Agrasen Col­lege and PGDAV Col­lege. The first cut-off list will be an­nounced on July 8. The to­tal num­ber of seats in the BA (pro­gramme) in each of teach­ing cen­tres is 284 and that in the BCom pro­gramme is 184.

The per­cent­age for cut-off will be de­cided on the ba­sis of marks ob­tained in the best four sub­jects in 10+2. For ad­mis­sion to both the cour­ses, only one vo­ca­tional sub­ject will be in­cluded.

For the BA (pro­gramme), one lan­guage and three best sub­jects (which can in­clude max­i­mum one vo­ca­tional sub­ject) is re­quired. For BCom, one lan­guage, busi­ness stud­ies, ac­coun­tancy and one other best sub­ject which can be a vo­ca­tional is a must. Stu­dents from other streams will be con­sid­ered for BCom with a de­duc­tion of 5% marks in the best four per­cent­age. The best four may in­clude one lan­guage and three best sub­jects out of which max­i­mum one can be vo­ca­tional sub­ject.

NCWEB is meant only for women stu­dents re­sid­ing in the Na­tional Cap­i­tal Ter­ri­tory of Delhi. Lec­tures are held on week­ends to en­cour­age women who can­not join regular col­leges, to study and get a de­gree. The cen­tre of­fers both un­de­grad­u­ate and post­grad­u­ate cour­ses. Classes for the un­der­grad­u­ate cour­ses are held at Bharati Col­lege, janki Devi me­mo­rial Col­lege, Je­sus and Mary Col­lege, Kalindi Col­lege, Lak­sh­mibai Col­lege, Mata Sun­dri Col­lege, Maitreyi Col­lege, PGDAV Col­lege, Shyama Prasad Mukher­jee Col­lege for Women, Sri Guru Gobind Singh Col­lege of Com­merce, Han­sraj Col­lege, Ma­haraja Agrasen Col­lege and Vivekanand Col­lege.
