Add-on courses are short-term training programs that are designed to supplement the core curriculum of a degree program. These courses are usually offered as certificate or diploma courses, and they provide students with additional skills and knowledge that are relevant to their field of study.
The hallmark of the new curriculum framework is the flexibility for the students to choose courses across various branches of undergraduate programmes.
All courses under the Multi-disciplinary, Ability Enhancement (language), and Skill Enhancement categories may be of 3-credits or as appropriate; Common Value-Added Courses: Courses under Value Added, Summer Internship/ Apprenticeship/ Community Outreach Activities, etc., for all majors, may be of 2-credits or as appropriate.

Wrapping up, add-on courses can help an institution in the NAAC Accreditation process by demonstrating the institution’s commitment to providing quality education and promoting continuous learning opportunities. These courses offer students the chance to gain specialized knowledge and skills that are not part of their regular curriculum.
