Hello respected teachers,

Could you please tell me the difference between curriculum and syllabus in simple terms? I've already consulted Google but could not get a satisfactory result.

I am looking forward to your answers.

I am not a teacher.

But in extra simple terms

Syllabus refers to the program or outline of a course of study. Curriculum, on the other hand, is a word that refers to the subjects that are studied or prescribed for study in a school or in a college. This is the main difference between syllabus and curriculum. Curriculum is a much broader concept whereas syllabus is much narrower. This with regard to the different areas they cover. Curriculum covers the whole course experience while the syllabus only covers a part of that course experience.
