DU Admission 2018: Delhi University (DU) is set to start its admission process for the academic session 2018-19 from next week. The registration for admissions for a few courses is done on the merit basis while entrance exam is conducted for others. This year, the admission registration portal for the nine entrance-based profession courses will be integrated with the centralized admission website. Earlier, there were two separate registration portals for entrance-based professional courses and merit-based UG courses.
These nine entrance-based undergraduate courses of DU are Bachelor of Management Studies (BMS), Bachelor of Business Administration (Financial Investment Analysis), BA (Hons) Business Economics, BA (Hons) Humanities and Social Sciences, Bachelor of Elementary Education (B.el Ed), Bachelor of Science in Physical Education, Health Education & Sports: BSc (PE, HE & S), BA (Hons) Multimedia and Mass Communication, BTech (Information Technology and Mathematical Innovations), and BA (Hons) Music.
