New Delhi, September 03, 2022 — University Grants Commission (UGC) India has published “Guidelines for Transforming Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) into Multidisciplinary Institutions.”

According to UGC, this program is the follow-up of the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020, which aims to control the fragmentation of Higher Education by transforming Higher Education Institutions into Multi-disciplinary Universities, Colleges, Clusters, and Knowledge Hubs.

The UGC Guidelines have classified Multi-disciplinary Institutions into three Types:

Under the current structure, teaching occurs through colleges affiliated with universities. Universities design syllabi, conduct examinations, and award degrees. NEP 2020 recommends the transformation of all HEIs into large multi-disciplinary degree-awarding autonomous institutions.

Therefore, the UGC Guidelines have outlined the procedure and rules for consolidating existing HEIs into multi-disciplinary degree-granting independent colleges through cooperation and collaboration. Under this arrangement, students enrolled in an HEI can take up the first degree at the host institution and the second degree at the partnering institution leading to a dual degree.

Further, single-stream institutions would be able to integrate their programs with nearby multi-disciplinary institutions to enhance their curricula. In addition, the existing multi-disciplinary HEIs would be free to seek collaboration to expand further and add more programs.

The UGC Guidelines elaborate on how such a new and unexplored educational architecture will help strengthen the structure of multi-disciplinary education and achieve the vision of the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020.
