Delhi University’s Academic Council on Wednesday approved a scheme that will allow students of other universities and institutions to study various courses at DU from next year, officials said. 

The Competence Enhancement Scheme (CES) will also permit individuals from different fields to take up courses in DU from next year, they said.

The scheme will apply to both undergraduate and postgraduate courses.

DU vice-chancellor Yogesh Singh said the purpose of the scheme was to increase efficiency of individuals by providing them with new information. The scheme will be launched early next year as a part of the centenary celebrations of the university.

“The scheme gives an opportunity to individuals from different fields to study in DU to enhance their knowledge and understanding in any

subject being taught at Delhi University,” DU said in a

statement.

Admissions under the scheme will be merit-based and the candidates will be allowed to register for a maximum of two courses and eight credit subjects in a semester. A candidate who fulfils the eligibility criteria can register for the courses, it said. Singh said entrepreneurs would be able to increase their business by acquiring new skills under this scheme.

The scheme is also aimed at helping senior citizens to continue to play an important role by enhancing their qualifications, knowledge and skills, according to Singh.

The number of seats under the scheme will be a maximum of 10 per cent of the total strength of that course, the statement said.
