Are you looking for a programme to pursue in distance learning mode? Go through the list of distance education courses that have received UGC’s approval for the academic session 2019. Scroll below to know more.

Distance Education is a means through which students can pursue the desired course even though they are not physically present in the classroom of the college/ university offering the course. Enrolling for a course offered in the distance education mode is an ideal option for a student if they – are pressed for time, do not have the required resources or have some geographical limitations.

However, not all courses offered in the distance mode will add value to one’s CV because there is a high possibility that the course may not be recognised. As per a notification by HRD Ministry, universities offering distance education courses will now be regulated under the UGC (University Grants Commission) ODL (Open and Distance Learning) Regulations, 2017.

Through UGC ODL regulations, UGC has laid down the minimum standards of instruction for the grant of degree to students for courses offered through distance mode at the UG and PG levels. Apart from that, under the regulations students are also permitted to take about 20% of the total courses offered in a semester through online learning courses as per UGC’s (Credit Framework for Online Learning Courses through SWAYAM) Regulations, 2016.

Thus, it is advised that candidates go through the below-mentioned list of courses offered by universities in the distance education mode as these have UGC’s seal of approval.
