Description:

Vocational or skill-based education is becoming increasingly significant with time. Bachelor of Vocation or B.Voc. is an emerging course in India that aims at providing adequate skills required for a particular trade to students. The three-year undergraduate programme is different from traditional academic programmes as it focuses on application-based studies rather than on theoretical knowledge. One of the biggest advantages of pursuing B.Voc., as compared to common degree courses, is that a candidate has multiple exit points during the programme and continued industry exposure. Apart from this, the work experience candidates gain during the course increases their chances of getting a job. At CVV, students also have the opportunity to explore and gain knowledge in other fields through Minor Courses besides their Core subject.
