Non-Collegiate Women's Education Board

In 1943, by a Delhi University act, Non-Collegiate Women's Education Board was established, where in women students were enabled to take some of the examination of the University with special coaching but without attending regular classes. This gave shape to the Non-Collegiate Women’s Education Board (NCWEB).

The Board began functioning in September, 1944 with 3 students. At present, the enrolment is more than 24,000. Only women students residing in the National capital Territory of Delhi can enroll themselves as students of the Board. NCWEB is a unique system with lectures on Sunday and academic breaks leaving students with six working days to follow their dream. In this neo–age of 100% cut-offs, class room crunch, gender discrimination, NCWEB is a welcome arrangement and a most satisfactory way to attain a degree from University of Delhi.

The Board enables thousands of young women, who cannot join regular college for various reasons to attend classes during Saturdays/Sundays, academic breaks to obtain Undergraduate and Postgraduate Degree from the renowned University of Delhi. However, Non-Collegiate students are not allowed to pursue any other full-time course.

Since there is classroom teaching, no written material is given. Students are expected to attend classes regularly as the minimum 66% attendance has been made mandatory to appear for University Examinations, which are held alongwith the students of regular colleges. Students are also expected to see the Notice Board for various information displayed from time to time. No individual information is sent by post.

The Board provides library facility to all undergraduate students in the respective Teaching Centres and a Postgraduate Library is located in the Arts Faculty Building, North Campus.

The Board provides DTC concessional pass facility for the NCWEB students. The Board gives financial aid and book loan facility for the academic year to the needy and deserving students.

The classes are held either on Saturdays or on Sundays and academic breaks of Delhi University. There are 50 teaching days in a year. At the Undergraduate centres, classes are held from 9.00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. There are 6 periods in a day.

A major advantage of the Non-Collegiate programme of teaching is its low cost and utilisation of the existing infrastructure of educational institutions during Saturdays/Sundays and academic breaks.

Teachers of the University of Delhi and affiliated Colleges are deputed as guest faculty to teach the Non-Collegiate students. The pass percentage of these students is as good as regular students.
