All the courses are interactive, prepared by the best teachers in the country and are available, free of cost to the residents in India.

I am M.Sc. 3rd-semester student at BHU. When I was in the second semester, our university started the swayam initiative, and our minor elective paper was changed to swayam course. I took environmental geology as the subject. We recently gave its final exam and completed the course. Now attracted by the new courses in swayam portal I wanted to join a course of the postgraduate level. I wanted to know that can I do so, as our university does not provide any minor elective, but I wanted to carry out this course like a diploma. Will be valid?
