Q: Some students want to work part-time alongside college. What is the best option for them?
For these students, School of Open Learning (correspondence) is the best option. It offers various honours and programme courses. The sale of forms is currently on and students can buy the form from the SOL building in North Campus.
As far as working alongside regular college is concerned, it becomes very difficult after a point to handle two things. It is not advised even by experts at the university. Students who work and go to a regular college either have to leave their jobs or drop out of college after some months.
Another option for women students is non-collegiate schooling, wherein classes are held on weekends in various colleges.
Q: What is the scope of admission for students who have got a compartment or supplementary in Class 12 boards? Can they apply to DU colleges?
For such students, the university has laid down clear guidelines. They can take provisional admission in a college provided they meet the cut-off.
But this is only provisional admission, which implies that students are required to submit their mark sheets once again when the supplementary results are announced which happens around September-October. But a compartment student can't apply for B Sc. Honours courses.
Q: Which language courses are offered in Delhi University and at what levels? Also what are their job prospects?
Delhi University offers various language courses at certificate, diploma, advanced diploma, graduate and postgraduate levels.
The languages available are French, German, Spanish, Russian, Bulgarian, Polish, Czech, Chinese, Japanese and many more. Interested students should contact the faculty of arts for more details.
As far as job prospects are concerned, translation is one of the biggest areas where students are
usually employed after doing a language course. Foreign embassies, tourism sector and jobs at KPOs are also booming industries.
If you are doing a language course alongside some other academic subjects, you may be preferred over others to be transferred to foreign branches of the same firm, if such an opportunity arose.
