Chandigarh: Panjab University is likely to introduce credit system for its postgraduate courses, from the next academic session. In order to look into the modalities of the proposed system, the University has constituted a committee as well.
RC Sobti, Vice-Chancellor - Panjab University, said that credit system is likely to come into effect by the next academic session. He also added that the credit system will make education more broad-based and facilitate diversity in the courses offered by the university.
Students will greatly benefit from the proposed system, as they would be able to study even those subjects that are not part of their prescribed syllabus. Apart from that, it will allow students to get credit for those subjects as well that their regular degree course does not offer.
Panjab University 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.
