Regular courses no more trendy, most college students want add-ons
With the increase in demand, colleges are approaching Panjab University to grant them permission to start more add-on courses. With regular courses out, the trend in colleges has shifted towards add-on courses. Almost all colleges in the city have started these courses, as most students prefer these to their regular graduation courses.

Talking to Newsline, Dr Puneet Bedi, Principal, MCM Dav College for Girls, said, “We have four add-on courses and all of them have their seats full. Students no longer want to pursue regular courses. These courses help them get placed right after graduation.” The college runs add-on courses in multimedia and animation, interior designing, video-reporting and cosmetology. All the courses are being taught by professionals.

As more students show an inclination towards the add-on courses, colleges have been approaching Panjab University authorities to grant them affiliation and permission to start more such courses. Sources at PU said many applications seeking permission to start new add-on courses were lying pending with the V-C office.

At S D College, studying an add-on course is mandatory. College Principal, Dr A C Vaid said, “It has been quite some years since we started add-on courses and the response is getting better every year. We have never received a complaint against the complusory enrollment for add-on courses.

This shows the interest among students and how they want something more besides the regular graduation courses.”

Meanwhile, because of these add-on courses, colleges have also been able to get many of their students placed right after graduation.

Another college that offers a number of add-on courses is the DAV College and its students get placed on basis of these courses.

Government colleges, too, have followed the trend and started various add-on courses. The most common among these courses include diploma courses in animation, radio jockeying and interior designing. However, the only problem being faced by the government colleges is lack of faculty. To overcome this problem, the UT Education department has now planned to revamp the entire system of add-on courses being offered by different government colleges..
