Kottayam: Mahatma Gandhi (MG) University is gearing up to launch a four-year degree programme in the upcoming academic year. The university has completed the first phase of preparations, with the draft syllabus set to be submitted by the 15th of next month.
A workshop on the formulation of the syllabus is scheduled to take place from the 13th to the 30th of this month at various centers. This initiative aims to ensure a comprehensive and student-friendly curriculum.
Vice Chancellor CT Aravindakumar has affirmed that the syllabus will be finalised by January. Following this, the admissions procedures are slated to commence in April. He emphasised that the new syllabus is designed to be student-friendly, aligning with contemporary educational needs.
Under the new system, enrolled students will now have the flexibility to switch courses, colleges, or even universities based on their interests, subject to certain conditions. To accommodate such changes, ten percent additional seats will be made available in the second year across all courses.
Under the new system, students who have acquired specific credits by the seventh semester will have the opportunity to complete their studies with an honours degree.
