Each module follows a sequential schedule; however, there is provision to facilitate their study as it takes years to do the course. This course is a complementary offering by the Mayapur Institute and carries no charges. However, we are endeavouring for determined & dedicated learners. The institution will not provide the books in digital or physical form. Students would have to purchase/arrange copies of the book by themselves. The speaker during the class will screen-share the pages being studied.
