The University of Delhi has consistently maintained its reputation of a premier university. The university offers a plethora of courses across different disciplines such as law, natural sciences, engineering, social science, commerce, business studies, management, music, fine arts, journalism, languages and many others in its 90 colleges, 16 Faculties, 87 Departments and 13 Centres, With around 2,20,000 students in regular and more than 4,00,000 in a distance mode of learning, it has perhaps one of the largest student community globally. An internationally acclaimed and affordable quality education with English as the common medium of instruction makes the university a top choice for students.

The student community is from within every corner of India and from over 80 countries worldwide. The numbers of international students have been growing steadily over the years. The Foreign Students’ Registry is the single window for the admission of international students in University of Delhi in its different Programmes of Study. The university whole-heartedly embrace the philosophy of “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam” which translates very simply to ‘The world is one family”. Towards making our students truly empowered members of the global family and to adapt to an ever-changing world, our dedicated and accomplished faculty and staff strive to provide a wellrounded education.

The delivery of a robust undergraduate academic programme is done through its 90 colleges, all of which follow uniform syllabi, academic calendar, and examinations. This model has worked well in restricting class sizes to allow close interaction. Yet, in no way are the students isolated from their peers in another college. The many inter-college events provide many avenues and opportunities to mingle and interact. The post-graduate courses are mostly held in what are known as the North and South Campuses,

The teaching-learning with our international student community is truly a two-way process, providing wonderful experiences of different cultures and new perspectives. I quote, from our Vice-Chancellor’s desk “Our diverse and colorful tapestry of the student community is enriched by overseas students in our campuses.”

We welcome our international students to experience first-hand the invigorating educational experience that the university, popularly known as DU, offers. Our university truly showcases the diversity that defines India .
