University of Delhi, commonly known as DU, offers several courses under its different faculties. Established in 1922, Delhi University has been a premier institute among the top universities of India. When the university was founded, dating back to 1922, there were only three colleges in Delhi – St. Stephen’s College, which was founded in 1881; Hindu College, founded in 1899; and Ramjas College in 1917, which subsequently got affiliated to it.

As per the guidelines of the 4-Year Undergraduate Degree Programme (4-YUP), if you wish or have to leave college after two years, DU shall acknowledge your education and award you a Diploma. Not only this, you can return to DU in the future to complete your education. Similarly, if you wish or have to leave after three years, DU shall give you a Bachelor’s degree with a Major Subject. However, if you successfully complete your course in DU after 4 years, you will be awarded a Bachelor with Honours Degree.
