The standard pattern for a bachelor degree used to be two years of full-time study following 10 years of schooling and two years of intermediate study. The two-year bachelor degree was offered at some universities in West Bengal up to 1999/2000, but it was gradually phased out in the other states starting in the 1960s. The present system is commonly referred to as the 10+2+3 pattern, requiring 3 years of study for a bachelor degree in arts, science and commerce. (Source: Nokut)

What our students say

My time at UEL has been incredibly amazing. The people I have met and the experience I have gained - I cannot forget the lessons this place has thought me. I always refer to our main campus as a mini world, because of immense amount of facilities it provides on campus. Docklands campus has a gym, Starbucks, eateries, a 24 hour library and a DLR station right outside campus. UEL will always have a special place in my heart even after I graduate; for the education and the experience!
