Enrolment date for foreign language courses at Daulat Ram College extended
Several Delhi University applicants who wanted to pursue foreign language add-on courses at Daulat Ram College can now heave a sigh of relief, as the dates for enrolment have been extended till July 15.
With the college deciding to introduce foreign language courses for the first time, 700 seats for seven language courses are in the offing.
As per a report, students from many different fields of study have been thronging the college to secure admission in the different foreign language courses, with French and German being the priority for many aspirants.
