The Agreement will facilitate access to courses, provided that the students/athletes satisfy the basic entry requirements and maintain a decent academic result at the UDM. Moreover, the UDM will allow early release of students/athletes for sports training. Classes missed will be caught up through tutoring in time. The duration of courses at the UDM might be longer than the initial prescribed duration time. The agreement will also enable some flexibility, to the extent possible, to accommodate the student / athlete’s needs. The students / athletes could be requested to undergo their training at the UDM on Saturdays if they are not free on week-day afternoons, depending on the availability of the appropriate lecturer or resource person.
