This is done through an indigenous developed IT platform that facilitates hosting of all the courses taught in classrooms to be accessed by anyone, anywhere at any time. 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?
