We are in No man's land: DU students under FYUP


New Delhi, July 22: Delhi University's new session started Monday after the rollback of the controversial four-year under-graduate programme (FYUP) and the students enrolled under it are confused and said they are in No man's land.

"Authorities have played with our future, we are in no man's land.

We don't know what will happen to us. We started criticising the four-year programme initially, then we accepted it and got used to the programme but now it has been rolled back," said, Malvika Sharad, second-year history honours student at Lady Shri Ram College.

Aditi Jain, a B.Com honours student at Lady Shri Ram College said: "Even our teachers are confused now. They are giving us no information about the course. It would have been good if they had given a thought over this FYUP thing a bit earlier."

The students said they have been totally ignored by the authorities. "They have forgotten us. They are not concerned about our future. I was never in favour of the FYUP from the beginning," said Mahima Tigga, a mass communication student at Kamala Nehru College.

According to the new restructuring, the university will function under a unique arrangement where students will be simultaneously taught under two different course structures. The first will be exclusively for the 2013 FYUP batch and the second will be according to the 2012 syllabus for the rest of the batches. Delhi University, one of the prestigious universities in the country, admits over 50,000 students under its under-graduate programme in 63 colleges.

Echoing similar sentiments, Anjali Kavatia of Ramjas College said: "The FYUP clearly wasted our time. During our first year, only basic things were taught and we will be much behind our juniors. There will be a lots of pressure on us in next two years." Kavatia is studying mathematics honours.

Divish Soni from Hindu College said: The Delhi University authorities have done enough of experiments on us. I hope the two years will be smooth and pass without much difficulty."
