4-year UG programmes from upcoming academic session 2023-24, UGC chairman shares details

University Grants Commission: The University Grants Commission (UGC) has completed the framework for the four-year undergraduate programme (FYUGP), which will be implemented in all higher education institutions as of the upcoming academic session 2023-2024.

These regulations for four-year undergraduate programmes will be given to all universities in the country beginning next week, according to the UGC.

Along with the 45 central institutions, the bulk of state and private universities will start implementing the FYUGP in the 2019 academic year. In addition, several deemed universities will also consent to the execution of the programme.

About 4-YEAR UG Programmes 

For both current and former students, the FYUGP is anticipated to get approval from the UGC beginning in 2023–2024, when all new students will have the option to select four-year undergraduate programmes.

This suggests that students who registered for traditional, three-year undergraduate programmes this academic year may also have the choice to begin the four-year degree programme in the subsequent session.

All students will have access to a four-year undergraduate degree, according to the UGC, but they are not forced to sign up for it. One option for a student is to complete a three-year undergraduate degree.

According to UGC Chairman M Jagadesh Kumar, the full four-year undergraduate course schedule will soon be made available to the public.

UGC Chairman M. Jagadesh Kumar’s statement 

As per the UGC chairman, students who are already enrolled in universities will also have the chance to take four-year undergraduate courses. “Such students who are in first or second year, if they wish, they can also be provided with the option of four-year undergraduate courses. However, it will start only from the new session starting next year i.e. 2023-24.”

The UGC would also offer different universities the leeway to create their norms and regulations. “Necessary rules can be fixed in this regard in the academic council and executive council of universities. If the university wishes, students studying in the final year can also be allowed to be a part of 4-year undergraduate courses,” he added.


Students pursuing a two-year postgraduate degree and an MPhil after four years of undergraduate study are required to earn a grade of at least 55% to be admitted to a PhD programme.

However, the MPhil programme won’t be available for much longer. According to the changes being made under the National Education Policy, some prominent universities will likewise quit offering MPhil courses in the following years.

Disapproval from academics

Numerous teachers and teacher organisations have expressed their criticism of the UGC’s complete readiness for the FYUGP. They claim that it will make students pay for an extra year’s worth of expenses.
