University Grants Commission (UGC)’s  Plans Of One Year PG Program

The University Grants Commission (UGC) has recently disclosed its intention to introduce a novel one-year post-graduate program slated for implementation in 2024. 

This revelation was made public through an Instagram post by Indiatimes. The distinctive feature of this one-year program is its exclusive availability to students who have successfully completed the four-year undergraduate program (FYUP).

It is essential to underscore that only those students who have undertaken and completed the four-year undergraduate program will be eligible to apply for the one-year post-graduate program. Individuals enrolled in or having completed a three-year undergraduate program will not be considered for this particular program. Instead, they are required to follow the conventional route of enrolling in the standard two-year postgraduate courses.

What is UGC’s Objective Behind This FYUP?

Crucially, the adoption of the one-year post-graduate program is not obligatory; students who have completed the FYUP still retain the option to enroll in the traditional two-year postgraduate courses if they so choose.

The fundamental objective behind the introduction of the four-year undergraduate program (FYUP) by the UGC is to align with a more contemporary educational framework, specifically the 4+1 structure, encompassing both Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees. This shift represents a departure from the conventional 3+2 higher education framework, bringing the Indian education system more in sync with the structural model commonly observed in Western countries.

Under the FYUP framework, undergraduate students are provided with a dynamic range of educational pathways. They can achieve a UG certificate after completing two semesters, progress to a UG diploma after two years of study, attain a bachelor’s degree after three years, or pursue a bachelor’s degree (honours) after a four-year course of study. This design is strategically crafted to afford students greater flexibility and diverse academic trajectories based on their preferences and career aspirations.
