Choice Based Credit System (CBCS)
Updated on 17 Oct, 2019


The Bachelor’s Degree Programmes offered by IGNOU during July 2019 cycle follows the Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) introduced by UGC. The CBCS provides the learner with flexibility to study the subjects/courses at their own pace; greater choice of inter-disciplinary, intra-disciplinary and skill-based courses and mobility to different institutions for studies. The system has the following advantages:

  • Allows learners to choose a combination of inter-disciplinary, intra-disciplinary courses, skill oriented courses (even from other disciplines according to their learning needs, interests and aptitude).
  • Makes education broad-based and at par with global standards.
  • Offers flexibility for learners to study at different times and at different institutions to complete the programme. Credits earned at one institution can be transferred to another institution.
