Staff Correspondent: The University Grants Commission (UGC) has suggests introducing effective initiatives to update the syllabus of current academic programmes in private universities.
The appeal was made via an order sent to vice-chancellors and registrars of private universities yesterday.
In 2019, instructions were issued to update the approved syllabus every four years from the sign-off date for each programme. This was in accordance with the conditions of programme approval in private universities per the Commission’s guidelines of standard syllabi.
The UGC said that a modern and up-to-date curriculum, diversification of subjects, unveiling of new horizons in science and technology are elements essential to achieving the desired quality of higher education. It also considered them necessary to ensure a global context and quality higher education.
The UGC has requested that necessary steps be taken to update the current approved programmes.
