About External Admissions
University of Pune for last several decades is facilitating such students through its External Registration Program which allows them to register for certain courses, undertake self-study of the stipulated syllabi and directly appear for the examinations leading to graduate or post-graduate degrees in certain faculties.
Under this program, University of Pune awards graduate degrees such as B.A. and B.Com. and Post-Graduate Degrees such as M.A., M.Com, M.Sc. (Maths), M.A. (Maths), L.L.M. and Class Improvement of certain examinations. This facility is being availed by about 50,000 students annually.
In many cases the information and rules and regulations printed on the forms and prospectus could not be clearly interpreted by the candidates especially in understanding the eligibility and ATKT criteria, required documents to be attached to the forms, choice of subjects permitted as per the University rules, fee structure, due dates, examination formalities, etc.
The printed information was too general and at times rather too comprehensive than what was specifically applicable to a particular candidate in his specific context. Instead of reading this huge amount of general information the candidate needed personalized help to finish his registration fprmalities. All this needed face-to-face interactions of a large number of candidates with a limited administrative staff of the External Section of the University of Pune. This led to severe delays and inconveniences to the candidates apart from an inadvertent load on the administration.
In order to facilitate the candidates, University of Pune distributed the same process and made the services available at 9 colleges in the year 2002. However, the limitations of the traditional system prevailed and the relief to the candidates could not be ensured at the desired level.
New Internet based
From the academic year 2003,
the entire process of application for registration and admission of the
External Candidates has been brought on a website on Internet so that
candidates can now apply from anywhere and any time. The application
form can be filled in either from any cyber café or any home computer
connected to Internet. The candidates do not have to undertake journey
to Pune or physically come to interact with the administrative staff of
the University. The candidate can finish the “Apply Online” process
within 15 minutes with the help of a computer literate person.
Thus, the candidate gets a
feel that the Application Form is, as if, specially designed for him or
personalized for him. As this is simultaneously applicable to a large
number of candidates, the application process gets transformed from a
generalized faceless process to a mass personalized service suited to
the real need felt by the candidates. It is in this way a transition is
being made by the External Section from a role of education
administrator to a new role of education facilitator.
