It notes that “given the 21st - century requirements, quality higher education must aim to develop good, thoughtful, well-rounded, and creative individuals”. Further, it also recommends that “the undergraduate degree will be of either 3 or 4-year duration, with multiple exit options within this period, with appropriate certifications, e.g., a UG certificate after completing 1 year in a discipline or field including vocational and professional areas, or a UG diploma after 2 years of study, or a bachelor’s degree after a 3-year programme. The 4- year multidisciplinary bachelor’s programme, however, shall be the preferred option since it allows the opportunity to experience the full range of holistic and multidisciplinary education in addition to a focus on the chosen major and minors as per the choices of the student”.
