Imphal: The Manipur University of Culture Students’ Union (MUC-CSU) has appealed against other students’ union not to create any crisis in connection with the newly opened MA course in Manipur University of Culture saying that it can interrupt the academic atmosphere.
Addressing media persons at Manipur Press Club on Friday, representative of MUC Yumnam Bhumeshor said that in connection with the admission of MA course in MUC, a prospectus has been released at the website of University.
He said that the admission criteria mentioned in the prospectus was according to the rules and regulation of UGC and there was no violation. Candidates with Bachelor’s Degrees in dance from any recognized university or equivalent degree with minimum 50 percent marks in aggregate are eligible. All the above criteria were all clearly written in the prospectus.
He said that if the certificates issued by the government dance college are recognized by the UGC as B.A equivalent then, they can apply for MA course. The UGC norms which stand by the MUC academic council cannot be changed due to pressurization of some students’ unions and organizations, MUC-CSU said.
