From march end Jamia Millia Islamia will start its admission process for the academic session 2015-16. Admissions will be conducted for 72 postgraduate and 51 undergraduate courses, apart from PhD, postgraduate diploma, advance diploma and certificate courses.
In total, there are around 8,000 seats, including those from the dental and engineering programmes. The university is encouraging the aspirants to apply online, as they have introduced online registration and online payment of fees last year. Though offline mode of registration will continue this year as well. According to a report in Times of India, Mukesh Ranjan, media coordinator, Jamia said "We would like more and more candidates applying online."
For various programmes shortlisting of candidates will be based on entrance test. He also added "for undergraduate admissions there will be no interviews. However, in a few postgraduate and professional courses there will be interview or group discussions, which will be made available later in the information bulletin as the registration process starts.''
The university is also planning some new undergraduate courses. But awaiting academic council approval, the courses may have to wait for the next admission cycle. However, Jamia is going to introduce new courses in its distance education mode.
Later this month the details on admission and dates for entrance tests and eligibility criteria will be made available on their official website.
