Colleges are slowly opening for the new semesters whether it be still in an online format, fully offline or a mixture of both, but students are gearing up for the new semester of their first one itself.
Along with all this, a need for actually helpful certificate and add-on courses that would enhance the skills of the students and not just waste their money has also been felt.
In the past year and the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many areas of our education system have had a light put on them, showing their inadequacies and how the students themselves are not helped out as much as they should be.
While this has been felt, the economic situation of students, especially after this past year also has to be kept in mind, which is why several Delhi University (DU) colleges have started certificate and add-on courses at a very low fee limit.
Not just that but the DU School of Open Learning has also added some unconventional and off-beat certificate courses for students who have just passed out of 12th standard.
Here are some of those certificate courses that DU is offering that won’t put a dent in the student’s pocket.
