MU to have bridge courses for outside science students

To ensure that students from outside the University of Mumbai are able to take up post-graduate courses in the University, the academic council approved a bridge course that will allow them to pursue their studies in the University smoothly. According to an academic council member, the decision has been taken for the masters in science (M.Sc) course, which has a high demand among both local and outside students.
Speaking about the need for introducing a short term course that will help students integrate with the course being offered, another member said that while the University offers updated courses in many science subjects, other universities pursue older syllabi due to which students at times lag behind others who have studied at the University itself.
“Currently, we have approved four courses most sought after by students. More will be added after seeing the success of the interim course,” said the member.
The course is expected to be implemented from next year after getting approval of the senate that is expected to meet next month.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
