Bharathiar University to introduce a novel concept

Students joining the affiliated colleges of Bharathiar University in the next academic year can exercise the option of completing a course in one, two or three years.

They can walk out half-way with a diploma or complete the course to earn a degree.

To begin with, this option will be extended to three courses – Catering and Hotel Management, Catering and Hospitality Management and Fashion Technology.

The syllabus will be designed in such a way that the first year will cover the basics offered in a three-year course. The second year will deal with the subjects in a more advanced manner.

“The initial admission will be for a year. Students taking up a job after a year will be given a diploma in the subject. Those who wish to leave after two years will be given an advanced diploma.

The ones who complete three years will be given a B.Sc. Degree,” Vice-Chancellor G. Thiruvasagam told The Hindu on Friday. According to him, the purpose was two-fold.

One was to address the severe manpower shortage in the areas of Hospitality and Fashion Technology, the other, to enable more economically backward students take up higher education.

Students who complete a year or two years’ course and go for a job can choose to pursue the course from where they left off after working for sometime.
