The University of Hyderabad has commenced its planning for the implementation of the National Education Policy 2020 by setting up a 13-member committee headed by Senior Professor Vinod Pavarala. The committee has been mandated to formulate a detailed roadmap for phase-wise implementation of NEP and work with all the Schools, Departments, and Centres in the University to put together new programmes and corresponding structures where necessary.
Setting the target of March 15 for bringing all such new initiatives to the Academic Council of the University for approval, Prof. B.J. Rao, Vice-Chancellor, announced that they will be implemented in the academic year 2022-2023. At a meeting with Heads and Deans of the University, Prof. Rao shared the University’s resolve to implement the NEP, with all its key features for higher education, including multiple entry/exit options, more short-term programmes, mobility of credits across institutions, and enhanced internationalization. This, he said, would be done to the extent possible without disturbing the academic integrity of the institution and by incorporating the flexibility and autonomy offered by NEP to take the University of Hyderabad to the next level.
