Non Collegiate Women’s Education Board helps girls, who cannot join regular classes or fail to secure an admission due to high cut-off, get a degree affiliated to University of Delhi (DU).
Delhi University (DU) is one of the most sought-after varsities for students looking for enrolment in BA and BCom programmes. However, given the skyrocketing cut-off list, not everyone can qualify for regular DU course. But, Delhi girls can still hope to make it in DU.
With DU’s Non Collegiate Women’s Education Board (NCWEB), girls can pursue regular BA and BCom programmes at colleges such as Hansraj College, Miranda House, Janki Devi Memorial College, PGDAV College, and Maharaja Agrasen College.
The classes for these programmes are held over the weekends and classes are conducted by DU teachers. After graduating, they will attain a degree affiliated to DU, which is at par with the degree attained on completion of any regular course.
It is also a good choice for girls who cannot join regular course due to various reasons including pursuing professional courses like CA, CS or those preparing for Civil Services exam. It is definitely a boon for those pursuing a job along studies. The admission to its 12,200 undergraduate seats is given on the basis of merit through cut-offs, which are not as high as the regular courses. Also, being a resident of the National Capital Territory of Delhi is a prerequisite.
|“NCWEB has gained popularity in the past 3-4 years as it is in tune with mainstream education. The courses offered by DU and NCWEB are at par. It is the most satisfactory way to attain a degree from University of Delhi.”|
“Taking admission in NCWEB helped me pursue my degree even while preparing for my CA exam and also allowed me time to take up freelance writing jobs to support myself financially. The professors who teach here are from DU itself and the course syllabus is also the same”, said Pragya, a third year NCWEB student pursuing Bcom from PGDAV College, NCWEB.
Like any other regular college, NCWEB conducts competitions, guest lectures by known personalities and even conduct short term skill development courses.
The Board organises placement drive twice in a year. This year, NCWEB received 1.5 lakh admission applications.
