The University Grants Commission has extended until April 30 the deadline for submitting applications for online courses and other Open and Distance Learning courses for the February-March session. For the current academic year, all colleges and higher educational institutions that offer online courses can continue to accept online applications from candidates.
Affiliated universities must ensure that their admission notices are posted on their official websites and that the online application window remains open until April 30. Admissions will be approved via the web portal of the UGC DEB. Following the close of the application window, participating universities and colleges will have until May 15 to submit their admission information to the portal.
Earlier in December, 2020 UGC had announced 78 undergraduate and 46 postgraduate non-engineering MOOCS. Using the government’s SWAYAM portal, UGC has been offering Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCS). It has also invited academics and institutes to create online courses for the portal.
The deadline for admission has been extended to support applicants who are facing problems as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
