The University Grants Commission (UGC) on December 12, 2022, issued a notification on Curriculum and Credit Framework for Undergraduate Programmes. In accordance with the NEP 2020, the UGC has formulated a new student-centric “Curriculum and Credit Framework for Undergraduate Programmes (CCFUP)” incorporating a flexible choice-based credit system, multidisciplinary approach, and multiple entry and exit options. This will facilitate students to pursue their career path by choosing the subject/field of their interest.
The fundamental principles that would guide both the education system at large, as well as individual educational institutions includes:
i. Recognizing, identifying, and fostering the unique capabilities of each student to promote her/his holistic development;
ii. Flexibility, so that learners can select their learning trajectories and programmes, and thereby choose their own paths in life according to their talents and interests;
iii. Flexibility, so that learners can select their learning trajectories and programmes, and thereby choose their own paths in life according to their talents and interests;
iv. Multidisciplinary and holistic education across the sciences, social sciences, arts, humanities, and sports for a multidisciplinary world;
v. Emphasis on conceptual understanding rather than rote learning, critical thinking to encourage logical decision-making and innovation; ethics and human & constitutional values, and life skills such as communication, teamwork, leadership, and resilience;
vi. Extensive use of technology in teaching and learning, removing language barriers, increasing access for Divyang students, and educational planning and management;
