Students receiving the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine will be allowed to attend practical classes.
Delhi University will resume offline practical classes for final-year undergraduate and postgraduate students from September 15. Only practical and laboratory experiments important for the upcoming semester will be held on the campus. All other theory classes will be held online like before.
Students visiting the campus for the offline classes will have to be vaccinated with at least one dose of the anti-COVID vaccine. Meanwhile, the staff members should be vaccinated fully. The students coming back to live in the hostels will also be vaccinated with both doses.
Joining these offline classes is not compulsory. A parental consent (Google form) has been posted online and is mandatory for students to be allowed back on campus.
Balaram Pani, the dean of colleges of Delhi University and principal of Bhaskaracharya College of Applied Sciences said that the university is expecting the students from Delhi to turn up for offline classes. Students outside of Delhi might face problems finding a place to stay. So the hostels will be opened to them. He also said that the university will see the turnout and decide on resuming offline classes for theory as well. The library has been opened to students.
At present, every practical class will be conducted with 50% of the total strength and in phases. All colleges affiliated with DU will have to follow all COVID-19 protocols. If the same campus is being used for evening and morning colleges, then a timetable must be followed separately.
