Lucknow University rolls out online application forms for under-graduate & PhD courses

As per reports, forms can be filled by April 20 without bearing the late fee.

After a troubled year due to the COVID pandemic, Lucknow University has initiated the admission process for its next academic session. As per reports, the varsity commenced the admission schedule for undergraduate and PhD courses by rolling out online application forms on Tuesday. Planned to be conducted virtually, the admission process this year will induct students into a diverse range of UG programs offered by the institution.

Centralised process of admissions at Lucknow University

Last year, LU had implemented a centralised system of admissions wherein enrollments in all affiliated colleges of the varsity were covered under a single application form. Given the ease and success of this measure, the university has declared that the current admission process will be conducted on similar lines.

While the list of colleges taking part in the unified structure wasn't ready till Tuesday evening, it is important to note that some leading educational institutes did not participate in the consolidated procedure last year. If the reports are to be believed, they will deploy their own plans for managing admissions this year too. Additionally, the decision of the colleges that participated in centralised admissions last year is still awaited. Given the fact that LU has extended its cover to four districts around Lucknow, it would have to take care of a large number of applications this year. As per reports, colleges from Hardoi, Rae Bareli, Sitapur, Lakhimpur have been brought under Lucknow University's jurisdiction.

Entrance tests to be conducted in June

As per reports, application forms can be filled by April 20 without bearing the late fee. If a candidate fails to adhere to this deadline, he would be allowed to fill the form by April 27, incurring the late fee amount as mandated by the institution. Reportedly, the authorities announced that the applicants can record their board examination scores after the results are declared. Slated to conduct entrance tests in July, the university will allow candidates to select their colleges after the merit lists are announced. Thereafter, classes for new academic semester are expected to start in July-August.
