The Central University of Kashmir launched a few measures such as fee waiver to the meritorious and needy students, to improve the admission intake in the varsity. The announcement was made by the varsity’s Vice Chancellor, Professor A. Ravinder Nath. “We would be providing 100 percent tuition fee waiver to 10 percent students based on merit and financial need of the students in the post-graduate courses, another 10 percent students would be getting 50 percent waiver while another 10 percent would be getting 25 percent waiver,” Nath was quoted.
He also assured that the varsity is ensuring that the curriculum is being designed in line with the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020. The VC said the university would sign MoUs with the industries in other parts of the country to enable the students to undertake internship.
Nath said that the university would be introducing a credit-based system whereby the students can take some credits from other partner universities to gain international exposure. He also added that since the NTA has now been conducting Common University Entrance Test (CUET) UG and PG for college admissions, “Our students must make use of that mainly from this region, Jammu and Kashmir, to explore further opportunities of their career progression not only in the Central University of Kashmir, but also other premier institutions of the country,” he said. The Vice Chancellor said Rs 494 crore would be spent on infrastructure development in the university.
