Delhi University has admitted 520 foreign students across undergraduate, postgraduate and PhD courses this academic season, a decline of over 27.5 per cent from the previous year. The maximum number of students this year is from Nepal (110), followed by Tibet (100) and Bangladesh (85). A university official attributed the significant decline in admissions of foreign students to the delay in the start of the academic session.

In 2022, 520 foreign students were admitted to the university, compared to 663 in 2021. The number of applications from foreign nationals also dipped this year by over 28%. “The university received applications from over 7,000 applicants this year. Last year, the varsity received over 9,000 applications,” Professor Amarjiva Lochan, Jt Dean, International Relations told PTI.
