Delhi University (DU) has launched seven vocational courses, which will start from the new academic session. Different subjects such as printing technology, software development and healthcare management have been included, so as to cater to maximum number of students. The University Grants Commission (UGC) has agreed to provide financial assistance of upto Rs. 1.85 crore to the below mentioned colleges. All these courses will be offered under National Skill Development:-
Maharaja Agrasen College: Advanced Diploma in TV programming and news production
Jesus and Mary College (JMC): Bachelors in Vocational Studies (BVoc) in retail management and IT
Kalindi College: BVoc in printing technology and web designing
Ramanujan College: Banking and Financial services, insurance and banking operations
“There are 50 seats in each course. The university shall announce the detailed schedule for registration and admission to these courses very soon,” said DU’s Dean of Students’ Welfare, J M Khurana.
Breaking away from the regular science, arts and commerce streams, and recognising the need for vocational studies, UGC had in 2014 approved a three-year BVoc course too.
