The committee, however, deferred discussion on the implementation of the Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC).
The Standing Committee’s recommendations will come up for discussion in the Academic Council meeting on Tuesday.
The university had formed a 42-member high powered committee to look into the NEP’s implementation.
The 42-member committee had also recommended continuing with the university’s three-year undergraduate programme but to “assimilate in its structure” a four-year degree programme as well and implement both one-year and two-year postgraduate programmes.
This was approved in the meeting.
The Standing Committee also accepted retaining the three-year honours degree courses by assimilating it in the four-year honours degree and four-year honours degree with research courses.
The committee also said “the quality of the degree conferred by the university should not be compromised”, therefore the “existing structure and workload should continue along with the addition of various courses”.
