The University of Delhi (DU) is providing three short-term courses by the Department of Adult, Extension of the university, and Continuing Education. These can be taken up by professionals or students. Even those who have not enrolled with DU have an opportunity to enroll in these courses.
These short-term courses include the ‘English Language Proficiency’ course, ‘Counseling and Guidance’ Course, and ‘Travel and Tourism’ course. Each has a period of three months, and people who have passed Class 12 from any stream are eligible to register.
Professor Rajesh Kumar, Continuing Education, and Extension, Head of the Department at Adult, said that the courses are extremely helpful for working professionals in several fields. There are 40 seats each for these 3 courses, on which admission will be done on a first-come, first-served purpose.

The fee of the courses has been set at a very reasonable price between Rs 2200 and Rs 2500. Anybody can do the courses, from an advocate to a manager to even a secretary.
Meanwhile, the admissions in the DU have not been started yet and are expected to open by end of July after the CBSE, CSICE, and other bords’ results are announced. Admissions at DU are performed based on the merit of class 12 marks, written exams.
This year meetings were on conducting admissions on CUCET or Central University Common Entrance Test. Though, many academicians are against it. Academicians contend it could be a pro-upper class bias and push candidates from economically and socially disadvantaged sections further towards the margins.
