Try this:
select DISTINCT Name
, REPLACE((select Course AS [data()] from #students s where s.SudentRowId = x.SudentRowId for xml path('')), ' ', ',') AS Course_List
from students x

Hi ,

Thanks for your reply. But if the course is social science, the results which returns is social,science.

StudenRowid  Name   course
1                       paul      Math
1                       paul       English
2                       David     science
2                       David     English
3                       Tim        Math
4                        Tom     Social science

For Tom it returns social,science which should return social science.

Thanks
