University of Jharkhand Courses
The CUJ is focused on research and innovative teaching-learning processes. The Academic Sessions shall start from the month of June-July every year.
CUJ Academic Course:
The University offers 5-year Integrated Course that are carefully designed to meet the multidisciplinary needs of a Choice-based Credit system (CBCS) across 10 Semesters. In a CBCS, a student enrolling for a Mathematics degree has a choice of taking an optional Paper (for Credits) in, say, Mass Communication.In principle, a student could opt for a credit course from any other Central University, subject to availability of seats.

In the 5-year Integrated Programme, there is an entry/exit option in the 7th Semester. Admission will be based on the score obtained by a candidate in the Central Universities Common Entrance Test (CUCET).

Marks of candidates coming from the University of Cambridge will be based on the Association of Indian Universities criteria – in calculation of overall average percentage of marks of best 5 subjects, such candidates must include the best 5  A-Level subjects taken. If the number of A Level subjects falls short of 5, the remaining subjects maybe taken from O-Level for aggregating the overall percentage of marks of best 5 subjects.
