Enhancing mobility across institutions

To ensure seamless mobility of students across higher education institutions in India as well as abroad, the University Grants Commission has formulated guidelines for the adoption of a uniform Choice-Based Credit System across all the universities in 19 undergraduate courses, reports Times News Network.

Guidelines formulated for adoption of a uniform Choice-Based Credit System, or CBCS, are in the public domain and the University Grants Commission, or UGC, has asked all stakeholders, including students, to give their feedback so that their comments can be put up before the expert committee for consideration for finalising syllabi.

UGC in its communiqué to universities stated: "Numerous measures to enhance efficiency and excellence in the higher education system in the country have been taken up. Reforms undertaken have led to noticeable improvement in the standards of education. However, due to the diversity of evaluation systems followed by different universities in India, students have suffered [a lack of] acceptance of their credentials, at times, across the university system, as well as by the employment agencies." Under the new system, credits earned by students can be transferred and would be of great value to students when seeking migration from one institution to another.
