After Delhi University, now the meta system would be seen at Jamia Millia Islamia [JMI] University. JMI has introduced the credit transfer system for its post-graduate courses under which students get to opt for diverse subjects in an flexible academic programme.

According to the university, the credit transfer system will be implemented across all departments, centres and faculties for post-graduate courses.

‘Credit transfer system entails that the students can opt for courses at the post graduate level cutting across disciplines and faculties, which will bring greater diversity and flexibility in academic programmes of the university,’ the university said.

After this, JMI has become one of the few institutions in the country to have introduced the credit transfer system at post-graduate level.

Professor Khalid Moin, Dean of Engineering of JMI, said, ‘For instance, a student doing MA in any department of the faculty of humanities and languages can now choose courses in other departments of the faculty of humanities and languages, faculty of social sciences as well as centres for Jawaharlal Nehru studies, Dalit and Minorities, Peace and Conflict Resolution, Culture, Media and Governance, and study of comparative religion and civilisation’.

Under the system, of 16 papers that a student has to clear during the two year duration, two can be chosen from outside the department. A student can do only one such course per semester and two during the entire duration of the MA programme.
