The Competence Enhance Scheme will be introduced at Delhi University in 2023, as per the university's recent decision. The following academic year will mark the beginning of this programme, making it possible for students attending other colleges or universities to enrol in various courses offered by the varsity.
The Academic Council Meeting of the University took place on August 3, 2022, and it was there that the Competence Enhance Scheme was given its approval. The soon-to-be-introduced programme is available to students enrolled in courses at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
Individuals from various fields will have the option, thanks to CES, to attend classes at Delhi University and improve their knowledge and comprehension of any field being covered by the university.
According to DU Vice Chancellor Prof. Yogesh Singh, this programme would allow students who have been accepted at other universities or institutes to study one to two courses throughout a semester, even without enrolling in any courses offered by DU.
The registration procedure for any courses falling under this scheme shall be determined solely on the basis of merit, and registrations will only be valid for the semester in which they are submitted. An applicant is allowed to enrol for a maximum of two courses per semester, for a total of eight credits.
Suppose students do not successfully pass or complete the course. In that case, they will be required to re-enrol in the course if they wish to receive credits from such a course and obtain the appropriate certificate.
