Panjab University to introduce credit system in postgraduate courses

Panjab University to introduce credit system in PG courses

Chandigarh: Panjab University is planning to start credit system in postgraduate courses offered by the varsity. A committee has been constituted by the varsity to find out the modalities for the proposed system.

If the system comes into effect, it will be fruitful for students as they can study those subjects, which are not part of their prescribed syllabus.

This will allow students to get credit for subjects that their regular degree course does not offer.

"The system is likely to come into effect by the next academic session," said RC Sobti, Vice-chancellor, Panjab University.

"Credit system will make education more broad-based and facilitate diversity in courses," added Sobti.

PU also intends to provide the credit system in its affiliate colleges that offer masters courses. The system will allow for transfer of credits if a student leaves one institution and joins another.
