Delhi University’s School of Open Learning is planning to introduce 10 new courses in its curriculum for the students from this academic session.The well known institution in the field of distance education has taken this step to enable students to pursue course of their choice,since many students are not able to enroll in their desired courses due to limited seats and high cut offs.
