Process of admission
The University constitutes an Entrance Cell every year under the supervision of the Pro-Vice-Chancellor to make the admission processes for every programme and the departments monitor and accomplish it effectively and timely. The admission process will be kept open for one month from the date of first admission to the specific programme so that the unfilled slots will be filled within the time frame. Considering the autonomy of the Departments, the Heads of the Departments are authorised to make the admissions according to the regulations. The University has no affiliated colleges and hence the admission process is centralised.
The University continuously reviews the admission process. The number of applications received, the students appeared for the entrance examination and the students turned up for interview are considered for analysis and follow up action. The courses on poor demand are restructured. New courses on high demand are commenced at regional campuses based on this review. The intakes of the courses are also reviewed every year. In the case of Research programmes the mandatory directions of the UGC are strictly followed. The University has been following course work as a compulsory part of Ph.D since 2002. The University also introduced common entrance test for Direct Ph.D programmes. With the continous evaluation and review of admission process to various programmes, the diversity and quality of the students have been improved.
