Until now, the cap on supernumerary seats for foreign students was 15 per cent.
The admission brochure for foreign students for the academic session 2023-24 was released by Vice Chancellor Mahesh Verma at a function at its Dwarka campus on Monday. The last date of submission of online and offline application forms is June 30
The university will also offer admission to foreign students in two new programmes – BSc Nursing and MSc Nursing. More than 100 international students from 33 countries, mainly from Nepal, Bhutan and Gulf and African nations, are currently studying at the university, officials said.
As far as admissions are concerned, preference will be given to candidates applying through ICCR fellowship.
