Apart from the above-mentioned courses, there are various online courses a student can apply for

  • Database Interpretation

  • Computer Forensics
  • Cyber Security

The online courses are provided by foreign universities as well such as Stanford, Harvard, MIT. This is a good option for those students who wish to add onto their CV the list of online courses they have pursued. This will increase their qualification level and add a specialized course.


The choice of the course you want to do highly depends upon the aim you have. If you are clear about the aim in life, be very careful while selecting the course you want to pursue. It is very important because of the fact that if you are not happy with the subjects you have, you will never be able to put in your best.

 You should be satisfied with the opted course and work hard to achieve success. Also if you are not happy and are not able to cope up with the subjects, there can be a possibility of you losing an year. To be safe, and most importantly to achieve success, be very sure about the subject you choose.

I hope students have now prepared their mind as to which course they must select and pursue. They must think wisely keeping into consideration their aptitude and skills. Happy people do not always have the best things in life, they turn the things into best. Nothing in the world should stop you from scaling new heights.

If you are happy with what you have done and are satisfied, then you are on the right path. Always listen to your instincts and keep going. Never be disheartened even if you do not get success in first go. You will fall, but don’t worry. Get up, brush of the dust and start over again. Nothing is unachievable.
