KUD to offer Dual PG Degree Courses 2013

Karnatak University – Dharwad will now offer dual postgraduate degrees. The meeting of the Academic Council held here on 26th March, 2013 approved the proposal for introducing dual postgraduate degree programmes.

Vice – Chancellor H.B. Walikar said that the University Grants Commission ( UGC ) had told the varsities that they could opt for dual postgraduate degree programmes in the interest of students.

Under dual postgraduate degree programmes, students can take up one regular postgraduate course and take up an additional postgraduate course on external basis. To further help the students, it has been decided that the student opting for this programme can seek external course from any other varsity or the parent university itself.

This programme aims at helping the candidates to complete two postgraduate programmes in two years. This is not a mandatory programme, but students willing to put in more efforts can certainly make use of this dual postgraduate degree programmes, he added.


Prof. Walikar announced that the varsity would appoint 15 guest librarians. There are over 26 Assistant Librarian posts vacant for the past few years. He said that the previous Vice – Chancellor had sought permission of the State government to appoint Assistant Librarians and it was proposed to pay their salaries from the varsity’s internal resources, but the government has not yet responded to the proposal.

Now, once again a fresh proposal would be submitted to the government seeking permission to appoint 15 guest librarians.

Prof. Walikar said that Governor H.R. Bhardwaj had instructed the varsity authorities to expand their area of operation and offer specialised courses. So, the varsity has taken the decision to sign a memorandum of understanding ( MoU ) with premier institutes and offer specialised courses designed by the university staff in their respective educational institutes. This exercise would help the varsity to extend its boundaries and facilitate students to get KU affiliations to their courses.

Fee Exception

Prof. Walikar said, last year students from backward and minority communities pursing undergraduate and postgraduate courses in the varsities had been given fee exemption totalling ₹ 1.05 cr. This year, the fee exemption stands at ₹ 1.36 crore.
