UGC portal to offer free e-content of 23,000+ post graduate courses



Marking the second anniversary of the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020, the University Grants Commission (UGC) has tied up with the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) to integrate e-resources with their over 7.5 lakh Common Service Centres (CSC) and Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) Centres to offer courses from the forthcoming academic session 2022 – 2023.

This initiative will help bridge the digital divide and increase the reach of higher education in remote parts of the country. Over 23,000 higher education courses will now be made available free of cost on the UGC portal.

The courses include 137 SWAYAM MOOC courses in emerging domains and 25 non-engineering SWAYAM courses.
