UGC develops Jeevan Kaushal Curriculum to upgrade life skills of students

Policy Indications

The University Grants Commission (UGC) has developed life skills (Jeevan Kaushal) curriculum for undergraduate students at Universities and Colleges. This Curriculum covers the courses on communication skills, professional skills, leadership & management skills, and universal human values. The life skills curriculum is available at https://www.ugc.ac.in/e-book/SKILL%20ENG/mobile/index.html .

The Jeevan Kaushal curriculum is suggestive. The UGC has requested Vice-Chancellors of all Universities to consider the curriculum for introduction in Universities and affiliated Colleges/institutions at the undergraduate level.


The objectives of the Jeevan Kaushal curriculum are:


(i) to enhance one’s ability to be fully self-aware by helping oneself to overcome all fears and insecurities and to grow fully from inside out and outside in;

(ii) to increase one’s knowledge and awareness of emotional competency and emotional intelligence at the place of study/work;

(iii) to provide an opportunity for realising one’s potential through practical experience;

(iv) to develop interpersonal skills and adopt good leadership behaviour for the empowerment of self and others;


(v) to set appropriate goals, manage stress and time effectively; and

(vi) to manage competency-mix at all levels for achieving excellence with ethics.
