The undergraduate and postgraduate level academic sessions of Tribhuvan University will be changed. The university has come to the conclusion of changing the academic session after the physical classes and examinations could not be conducted for more than 10 months due to the coronavirus.
As per the preparations of the university, the undergraduate level academic session will now start from February. Earlier, the university had a rule to start undergraduate studies from November, but it had to be postponed for three months. Shivlal Bhusal informed.
From next year, the academic session of the bachelor level will be considered as Fagun. This year too, the study institutes and faculties under the university are going to publish the student admission program based on Phagun. The university is preparing to complete the annual examination in 12 months after completing 10 months of regular study.
This time, the National Examination Board is also publishing the results of students studying in class 12 soon. The board had conducted the class 12 examination in the second week of last November. Bhusal informed that the bachelor level admission has been opened by coordinating the work schedule of the board. It is said that there will be no difference of more than one or two months between the time of publication of the results of class 12 and the time of opening new admission for graduation.
In addition, the university is going to start a new academic session at the postgraduate level from the end of April. Earlier, the post-graduate level academic session was started in Chait, but now they are preparing to start the academic session only from April, said Bhusal.
Currently, the university is conducting annual examination programs at the undergraduate level. Based on this, the postgraduate level academic session is likely to reach in April, he said.
The university has informed that the academic session has to be changed only for one and a half months at the postgraduate level.
The university has issued a circular to the subordinate campuses for the implementation of the agreement reached with the part-time teachers. A circular has been issued to the campus to implement the provision of a facility for teachers to get part-time as per the provision, counter-credit and annual system required to make part-time teachers teaching assistants.
According to Vaikuntha Prasad Thapaliya, Chief of the TRI Staff Administration Division, part-time teachers can be appointed as teaching assistants on the basis of the internal resources of the campus and the workload. But this will require the approval of the university. For this, if the campus cannot afford its own resources but has to appoint a teaching assistant, it should be recommended in such a way that it can be confirmed.
In addition to this, the university has also directed to implement the rate of Rs 17,400 per credit for the time being and Rs 590 per period as per the annual examination system for a maximum of 150 hours.
