Flexible Pathways

At DAV University, we offer flexible pathways for students to tailor their educational journey according to their aspirations and commitments.

Those who complete the entire three-year undergraduate programme, accumulating 120 credits, are granted a coveted bachelor's Degree in B.Sc. Microbiology.

Alternatively, students have the option to exit the programme at various stages, each milestone marked by academic recognition.


Students opting to exit the programme after earning a minimum of 40 credits get an undergraduate certificate in the relevant discipline/subject. This certification acknowledges their foundational knowledge and skills acquired during their academic pursuit. To ensure practical applicability, students must also accrue at least 4 credits in work-based vocational courses, providing hands-on experience through internships or apprenticeships.


Similarly, students who attain a minimum of 80 credits can opt to exit the programme with an undergraduate Diploma in the relevant disciplines/subject. Alongside academic excellence, students are required to earn an additional 4 credits in skill-based vocational courses, enhancing their proficiency in specialized areas and augmenting their employability.
