The Non-Collegiate students are, however, not allowed to pursue any other full-time degree course. The annual fee is approximately Rs.3,500 per year. However, no fee is charged from disabled students.
“Women students get enough time to pursue professional courses and even do regular jobs as they are free for six days a week. Our classes only happen on Sundays so these students can do career enhancement courses during weekdays,” Gupta said.
Gupta also added that NCWEB is fast becoming first choice of women students with high grades, who want to pursue a profession or any professional course. “Last year also we had many students who had scored above 90 % joining NCWEB,” she said.
Gupta said that NCWEB is also providing its students with the option of taking up skill development courses in association with National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC).
