If you want to do a diploma in airline management or you want to brush up your skills in broadcast journalism then IP College is a wise choice. The college is offering a range of short-term courses that are different and good.

No wonder students are making a beeline for IP’s unique offerings. Thursday was busy day at the college information desk that received several queries on such courses. “Students these days are very focused on their choice of career. Most want an additional qualification while doing their graduation. These courses will enable them to get a part-time job in a travel agency or a media organisation during the summer breaks,” said a faculty member.

Apart from these, the college is offering courses in mass communications and media. The fee for this course is Rs 20,000 and the curriculum includes anchoring, news reading, broadcast reporting, camera and linear editing. These have been included specially this year.

The airline diploma course costs Rs 15,000 and will be taught in collaboration with Kvoni Academy of Travel. It comprises three modules on international ticketing, computerised reservation system, domestic ticketing and soft skills.There are 30 seats available in this course. That’s not all. The college is also providing special courses on spoken English.

“A lot of students had complained last year that they were having difficulties in English. These students were from the Hindi department and other courses,” said Manasvini Yogi, media coordinator of IP College.

“We decided to introduce a course which would address these problems. Besides, even if students are pursuing a course in Hindi journalism, it is the need of the hour to be well acquainted with English. There are 36 seats available in this course. The course has a minimal fee of Rs 1,000 and is relatively inexpensive compared to other courses offered by private institutes.”

This course is open to all Delhi University women students. “We might have an intake of professional women also. But this will be subject to the number of seats left vacant,” added Yogi.

“Our first priority will be our college and DU students.” There are 50 seats available in this course.
