The University Grants Commission (UGC) has launched a scheme on skill development based higher education as part of college/university education, leading to Bachelor of Vocation (B.Voc.) Degree with multiple exits such as Certificate/Diploma/Advanced Diploma under the NSQF(National skill Qualifications framework). The B.Voc programme is focused on universities and colleges providing undergraduate studies which would also incorporate specific job roles along with broad based general education.
