Three Sanskrit Universities ink MoU to prepare new syllabi, develop learning material

The Central Sanskrit University (CSU), Delhi, the National Sanskrit University (NSU), Tirupati and Shri Lal Bahadur National Sanskrit University have inked a memorandum of understanding to prepare new syllabi, develop learning material and allow the student and faculty to exchange, as part of the united effort to promote studies in the language. 

As part of the MoU, the three Sanskrit Universities will also allow the transfer of academic credit from one to another university. The three universities also celebrated their foundation day and signed the MoU at the event. The event was attended by the Vice-Chancellors of Sanskrit Universities and scholars from across the country. 

While speaking on the same, NSU VC Professor Radhakant Thakur said that the three universities will design a new course to attract foreign students. “We have decided to allow the exchange of faculty members as per requirement. Students can also exchange institutions and carry their academic credits. This will help us meet our needs and grow,” Thakur told The Telegraph.

Until now, it was not allowed to exchange the teachers or students among the varsities. Prof Banmali Biswal, director, academic affairs, CSU, said that the university allows the exchange of faculty members and students within its 11 campuses. Extending this provision among three separate universities will be a new step.

“Also we discussed offering two degrees to students of Sanskrit which has been allowed by the UGC. There was discussion on collaborating with foreign universities to offer joint and dual degrees,” Biswal said.

It must be noted that the higher education regulator University Grants Commission has recently allowed Indian Universities to allow students to pursue two-degree programmes simultaneously. It has notified a new regulation to allow Indian universities with accreditation scores of 3.01 out of four to sign MoU with the foreign universities in the top 1000 rank of Times Higher Education or QS to offer joint degrees and dual degrees.
