School of Open Learning (SOL) to introduce 10 new courses

The University of Delhi is all set to introduce 10 new courses under its School of Open Learning (SOL) from the upcoming academic session, which will include undergraduate as well as vocational courses.

Every year a lot of students struggle to get admission into Delhi University but only few get and now there is a ray of hope for them as DU’s School of Open Learning (SOL) expected to come up with these new courses.

List of courses:

  • BSc (honours) mathematics
  • BA (honours) history
  • BA (honours) economics
  • BA (honours) Hindi
  • BA (honours) psychology
  • BA (honours) Sanskrit
  • BA (honours) Hindi journalism
  • BVoc in human resource management
  • BVoc in office management and secretarial practices
  • BVoc in marketing management and retail business

Officials said these courses are ones which have the least student intake as compared to applications received in regular DU colleges. The new addition will take the number of undergraduate courses offered by SOL from five 5 to 15.

According to the director of SOL CS Dubey, the course structure and syllabus has already been prepared. The courses will have to be approved by the University and the Distance Education Board (DEB) before starting the programmes.

“When we studied the number of applications received for these courses, we found that many students had applied but only a limited number got admission. There is a lot of demand for these courses among students so we are providing a chance for students to study these courses through distance medium,” Dubey added.

Every year nearly 1.5 lakh student studies in SOL.
