The panel has encouraged reintroducing the 4-yr path as a part of the undergraduate reforms.

“Both three-12 months and four-year courses could co-exist, but with a couple of exit and entry options. The 4-12 months program will provide more rigor and allow college students to conduct research optionally,” the draft said. “Students will graduate with a four-year Liberal Arts Science Education Diploma with Honours, or may also graduate with a B Sc, BA, B Com or B Voc after finishing three years with an appropriate final touch of credits within their situation,” it said. The four-12 month program, the BLA or BLE inside the selected most important minors, will allow students to experience the overall variety of liberal arts training. The 3-12 months program will lead to a Bachelors’s diploma. Both programs may also result in a “with Research” degree if the scholar completes a rigorous studies challenge pa, particularly through the Higher Education Institute (HEI). HEIs may also name their 3-year undergraduate diploma a Bachelor of Arts, Science, or Vocation, or the perfect professional field, the draft report recommended.
