All students want to study something of their own choice. The main obstacle is sometimes those courses are not offered in all the colleges and universities. As a result, many students study that are easily available irrespective of their desires. They later end up regretting their choice. Students especially from the rural areas of India don’t have much choice.
Engineering and Management courses have always been more popular than others. Most students these days go for engineering, management or medical studies because of both parental as well as peer pressure. These fields have become so popular that most colleges only offer these courses. For a student, who wants to study a course other than these 3 fields, life is very difficult.
For someone who wants to go for general studies, a good option available is Pune University. The university was founded back in 1949. Apart from engineering, management and medical studies, it provides a host of other courses especially general courses which includes Arts, Mass Communications, Hotel Management and Law.
