Mamidala Jagadesh Kumar, Chairman of the University Grants Commission (UGC), today launched Indira Gandhi National University’s four-year undergraduate programme (FYUP).

The FYUP, considered a critical reform in Indian higher education, aims to give students with a variety of enrollment options, according to an IGNOU statement.

IGNOU’s FYUP provides students with a variety of options, including completing these courses as part of a normal program or pursuing a concurrent UG degree in a different subject. Bachelor of Commerce (BCOMF), Bachelor of Arts (Economics, History, Political Science, Psychology, Public Administration), Bachelor of Arts (Sociology, Anthropology), Bachelor of Science (Biochemistry), Bachelor of Arts (English), Bachelor of Arts (Hindi), Bachelor of Arts (Sanskrit), Bachelor of Arts (Urdu), Bachelor of Social Work, Bachelor of Arts (Facilities and Service Management), Bachelor of Arts (Philosophy), and Bachelor of Arts ( Journalism and Digital Media).

Saying that the FYUP is an essential reform in Indian higher education and students from across the country will have the opportunity to enrol in IGNOU’s FYUP, the UGC Chairman in a social media post said: “Many of IGNOU’s courses are also available on SWAYAM.  Whether a student wants to take these courses as part of their regular programme or wants to do a simultaneous UG degree in a different discipline than their primary discipline, the opportunities for the students are aplenty.”

FYUP in IGNOU was inaugurated during the National Seminar on G20 Presidency and India’s Global Leadership Role. The UGC chairperson was there as the primary guest.

The FYUP was implemented under the New Education Policy (NEP) 2020. Under FYUP, credit scores are introduced for all courses, and students can choose between a three-year honors degree and a four-year honours course with or without research.
