23rd July 2018, Delhi: It’s been over a decade now and the vogue of ‘add-on’ certificate courses offered at Delhi University’s Colleges and Centres still dominates. The trend started with just a couple of course at SGTB Khalsa College and Miranda House around 2006. Today, more than half-a-dozen of DU Colleges offers vocational and skill-based certificate courses that are open to all (with no concerns over class 12th marks).With limited seats available in full-time regular courses, the students aspiring to study in DU can also consider enrolling in these pocket-friendly certificate courses which hold market value. The classes for such certificate courses are usually held after regular college hours making it convenient for a full-time student from DU or other universities to pursue the certificate courses simultaneously.
From becoming an actor, filmmaker, photographer to a digital marketing expert, DU has got it all. Popular courses to enroll are at Hansraj College that offers add-on courses in Acting, Filmmaking, Mass Communication, Advertising, Radio Jockeying, Anchoring & Television Journalism.
Next in the league are Jesus & Mary College (JMC), Bharati College & Kalindi College that offers courses in Media Studies, Advertising & Marketing, Photography, Films & TV Production, Direction, and Photojournalism. Except at JMC, all other colleges programs are co-educational in natures.
Other skill-based programs offered by Campus of Open Learning includes Digital & Social Media Marketing, Theatre Acting, Fine Arts, Interior Design, Graphic Design and Animation (2D & 3D).
The admissions for 2018 session are now open and direct (on the first-come-first-served basis). Forms and details can be obtained by visiting the respective campus or from their official websites. Students may also contact or WhatsApp their queries on helpline number 09312237583.
