The Andhra Pradesh Govt has announced the mandatory introduction of the English medium at all the UG colleges across the state. He also added that the Telugu as the medium of instruction will be discontinued with effect from the academic session 2021-22.

The official release also stated the importance of pursuing the undergraduate programmes in English medium and added that the transition from Telugu language to English Medium would be unchallenging at the UG level. The govt would also introduce spoken English programmes in the undergraduate courses at various levels.

YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, Chief Minister of AP, took the decision to make English medium mandatory at all the govt, govt-aided and private degree colleges, informed the Department of Higher Education.

The Andhra Pradesh State Council of Higher Education issued a notice stating all private, aided and unaided degree colleges offering Telugu medium programmes should submit proposals for conversion into English medium between June 18, 2021 and June 28, 2021.

However, Telugu as a language course can be continued by the colleges in the curriculum, added the notification.

The Government also planned to make English medium mandatory in all the govt schools from the primary school level in the academic year 2020-21 itself, but the state high court struck the decision.

The government firmly believes that the introduction of the English medium of teaching at the UG level would build up the career probability of graduates.

More than 2.62 lakh students have taken admissions into degree colleges across the state out of which 65,981 students are opting for Telugu medium programmes during 2020-21. Out of 65,981, 24,007 students opted for BA, 24,960 for B Sc and 16,925 for B Com courses.

This conversion into English mode would benefit these students immensely, the department added, as the majority of these students would be looking for career opportunities across the country and also in foreign countries.
