Students of Delhi University can supplement their studies by joining add-on courses being offered in various college. There are add-on courses in foreign languages, media and communications and photography. Each course has 30-50seats and will begin in the first week of August.

WHAT ARE ADD-ON COURSES?

Add-on courses are either certificate courses in foreign languages or specialised research programmes.

These give students an opportunity to pick up a job-oriented skill and can be very different from the B.A. or B.Sc programmes they are enrolled with.

While cultural societies and clubs have always been a part of the “DU experience” and have broadened horizons of many students, add-on courses have also made their mark. The courses start around August and are conducted after college hours.

WHY ARE THEY BENEFICIAL?

These courses give students an edge when they sit for placements at the end of three years and often open up avenues that could lead to further specialisation.

Not only do they offer a fancy boost to your CV, but allow you to explore different fields. So, now a History student does not have to worry about looking for a job matching his graduation degree, Tourism certificate course can take his interest further.

WHAT IS THE ADMISSION PROCEDURE?

Admission to the various short-term courses is done directly through the college offering them.

Since the seats are limited, they often fill up as soon as they are announced. Details can be found on individual college websites.

IS THERE ANY PROBLEM?

Several students complained that since these courses are not subsidised by the University, they are very expensive.

Therefore, only those students who are absolutely sure about a career related to the programme should take it up.
