NEP 2020 Implementation at KRMU

At K.R Mangalam University, we are committed to implementing the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 in its entirety, and to creating a more inclusive, holistic, and relevant education system that will prepare our students for the challenges of the 21st century. We believe that this policy has the potential to transform and create a more vibrant and dynamic education ecosystem in India.

Some of the key elements of the NEP 2020 that we are actively working to implement at our university include:

(a) Holistic and Multidisciplinary Education with a Flexible and Innovative Curriculum

With the focus on Outcome-Based Education (OBE), our university is evolving an innovative, flexible, and multidisciplinary curriculum, allowing students to explore a creative combination of credit-based courses in variegated disciplines along with value-addition courses, Indian Knowledge Systems, vocational courses, projects in community engagement and service, value education, environmental education, and acquiring skill sets, thereby designing their own learning trajectory.

All academic programmes offered by the University focus on employability, entrepreneurship and skill development and their course syllabi are adequately revised to incorporate contemporary requirements based on feedback received from stakeholders.

The curriculum is aligned with the needs of the industry and the job market and is flexible enough to adapt to changing trends and technologies.

Furthermore, the curriculum integrates cross-cutting issues relevant to professional ethics, gender, human values, environment & sustainability and Sustainable Development Goals.

Through multiple entry/exit option student can earn appropriate certification for the level of course:

  • Certificate after completing one year in a discipline or field.
  • Diploma after completing two years of study in a discipline or field.
  • Bachelor’s degree after completing a three-year program.
  • Bachelor’s degree (Honours with Research) after completing four- year program.

(b) Emphasis on Technology

At our university, we have developed a robust e-learning platform (KRMU MOODLE LMS) that allows students to access course materials, lectures, and other resources online. We are also exploring the use of new technologies such as virtual and augmented reality to enhance the learning experience for our students.
