As transformational as the New Education Policy 2020 could get, the multi-disciplinary feature and the emphasis on holistic learning is a significant step that will immensely benefit the student community. It will certainly expand possibilities of education in India to more foreign students. With NEP, the Government of India has enabled to create an ecosystem that can offer multidisciplinary education and bring in fundamental changes in learning and development in India.

Despite the stream, the flexibility to choose between subjects from humanities and sciences to sports and fine arts opens up a plethora of choices for students to explore a wide range of interest. This allows for a creative combination of subjects, state-of-the-art curriculum and multiple entry and exit options during undergraduate courses. 

Contrary to an education system that favours rote learning rather than deep understanding of a subject, NEP brings in the good news that students can now acquire 21st century knowledge and skills required for a successful career. Multidisciplinary learning approach fosters educational curiosity, critical thought process, leadership, adaptability, teamwork skills, professionalism and self-reflection to one’s socioeconomic environment. The pandemic year once again illustrated that there is no single-dimensional solution to complex problems of modern day as multiple agencies work towards a vaccine for the virus. Given the post COVID economic situation globally, companies and business models have reshaped completely. Experts are working around psychology, history, political systems, economies, mathematics and human behaviour to build solutions that the world needs. Finally, in 34 years, NEP has rightly placed its emphasis on holistic learning that prepares critical problem solvers in a fast-moving environment.
