Every year before the admission process begins for its undergraduate courses, Delhi University conducts 'Open Days', or sessions where queries of applicants are addressed.
Students and parents are invited for these sessions to get their admission-related queries addressed by DU staff. "There are a lot of outstation students who visit the campus prior to admissions for application and counselling purposes. Now that online application is possible and students may opt not to attend the 'Open Days', we are planning to digitise the same," said DU's Deputy Dean of Students' Welfare, Gurpreet Singh Tuteja.
"The proposed 'e-Open Days' -- a web-based assistance service for students -- will be made available 24X7 on the university website. There will be a 40-minute presentation which will include all that an aspirant needs to know about the admission process," he added.
The Open Days for the upcoming academic session will be held from May 21-30 at the varsity's North Campus. "Besides the presentation, the recordings of the sessions conducted here will also be made available online so aspirants can have a fair idea about the process," Tuteja said.
The varsity is also working on a set of Frequently-Asked Questions (FAQs) based on queries from students in previous years, Tuteja said. The FAQs will be available on the website soon and students visiting the campus will also get the same in the form of handouts, he added.
Admissions to over 54,000 seats in DU's undergraduate courses will begin from May 28. The online registration process will be open from May 28 to June 15 while offline forms will be accepted at the registration centres from June 5 to June 15. The first cut-off list will be announced on June 25.
