Banaras Hindu University (BHU) will start a four-year undergraduate program for both Honors and Research from the academic session 2024-25. Students admitted under this program will be awarded a UG Honors Degree. This decision is in line with the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020.

As per the BHU proposal, only 10% of the total admitted students scoring 7.5 or more CGPA will be allowed to choose UG Honors on the basis of merit with research. The institution said the proposed program will focus on the holistic development of students so that they become responsible citizens who are able to make the best use of their university education in terms of their personal and professional development.

What will be the benefit?

Students completing UG Honors with research will be eligible for postgraduate programs without obtaining a PhD. The proposed program will assist students in selecting from a wide range of options in short courses.

Who will get admission?

Students should note that in graduation, they will also have to earn credits in multidisciplinary courses, capability enhancement, value-added courses, skill enhancement courses, and internships. Students pursuing UG Honors with Research will also have to write Research Management in their final semester. Skill enhancement professional programs and specialized programs regulated by specific regulatory bodies will continue at South Campus as they are not covered under NEP.

Only these students will get a hostel. BHU Council has extended the proposal to provide hostel facilities only to those students who have at least 70 percent attendance in classes. Departments have been advised to review their current programs and formulate strategies to effectively implement the proposed changes.

Moreover, admission to other UG courses like BA, BSc, etc. will be based on the CUCET UG score. For more information and other details related to the four-year UG program, visit the official website of BHU.
