Specialists accept that the new draft of the Long term Undergrad Program (FYUP) will help understudies wishing to seek advanced education abroad. The frenzy among Indian understudies to concentrate abroad is expanding step by step. Till November last year, more than 6 lakh Indian understudies traveled to another country for advanced education, though in 2021 this number was 4.44 lakh.
According to these figures, Germany, Canada, the US, Italy, and Australia, are the top 5 nations where more Indian understudies like to study. As indicated by the new draft of UGC, presently understudies will want to get an undergrad ‘Respects’ degree solely after finishing four years rather than three years.
UGC says that the draft educational plan and credit structure of FYUP are according to worldwide guidelines. One benefit of global uniformity in the degree of training is that Indian understudies will get a larger number of chances than before for advanced education in colleges of America and Western nations.
