A Degree Programme With equal focus on Education and skill.

Skill-based education is more significant in the current times. Bachelor of Vocation (B.Voc) is envisaged in a way where the thrust is given on skill based application studies along with that of theoretical knowledge. This course is an ideal blend of both Skill and General Education.

The University Grants Commission (UGC) has launched a scheme on skill development based higher education as part of college/university education, leading to Bachelor of Vocation (B.Voc). However, unlike the traditional UG courses, B.Voc curriculum is often mapped with job role descriptions as per National Skills Qualification Framework (NSQF). Since the curriculum is industry and work-integrated and for some reason, if you are unable to complete the 3-year program, you can still obtain a Diploma and advanced Diploma (or equivalent) after completion of the first and second year respectively. Hence, your knowledge and skills are valued at every level and you will be qualified for a suitable job, as per market requirements. You can even explore becoming an entrepreneur in your domain

B.Voc degree is equivalent to any other bachelor’s degree granted by the University Grants Commission (UGC).
