On Highlights

Q:   Is a degree from IGNOU valid?

A: 
Yes, IGNOU is a trusted and accredited distance education university. It is a central university which was established by an ACT of parliament in 1985. Therefore, a distance education degree from IGNOU is equivalent to a degree granted by any recognised university in India. Also, the degree from IGNOU University is acceptable and valid overseas and in foreign countries with ease. The reason behind this is IGNOU is a recognised university under the UGC and is a governmental university too. Adding further, an IGNOU degree is approved by DEC and AICTE as well.

Q:   Is IGNOU an open university or a distance education institute?

A: 
IGNOU or Indira Gandhi National Open University, as the name suggests, is an open and distance learning institution. Only a few courses, such as Ph.D. and M.Phil programmes are offered through regular mode. Also, UGC and Allahabad court together have also mentioned that all the degrees from IGNOU will be considered as valid and legitimate as any other regular college degree.
 

Q:   Can I pursue B.Ed through a regular college and M.Com through IGNOU simultaneously?

A: 
The eligibility criteria and admission policies for pursuing two different courses simultaneously may vary from one university to another. Therefore, it is advisable to check with the respective universities offering B.Ed and M.Com courses for their policy on pursuing multiple courses at the same time. In general, some universities may allow students to pursue two courses simultaneously, while others may not. However, even if both universities permit the simultaneous pursuit of two courses, it may still be a challenging task to balance the coursework, assignments, and examinations of both courses. Therefore, it is important to consider the workload and time commitment required for each course before making a decision. In the case of IGNOU, the university allows students to pursue multiple courses at the same time, subject to certain conditions. As per IGNOU's policy, students can pursue one regular course and one non-regular course simultaneously, or two non-regular courses simultaneously. However, it is important to note that students pursuing two courses simultaneously will have to manage their time effectively to ensure that they meet the academic requirements and deadlines of both courses. Therefore, it is recommended that you check the policies of the respective universities and assess your own capabilities and time availability before deciding to pursue B.Ed through a regular college and M.Com through IGNOU simultaneously.

    I am fully dissatisfied with IGNOU.
    Placements: I was pursuing Bachelor of commerce in general. I have got no information regarding placement cell. Infact, I have not met with batchmates during my course. No mail/message has been sent from IGNOU for the placement purpose. Those who want to get placement, I would not recommend IGNOU for the same.
    Infrastructure: I have not attended classes because not getting proper mail/message from IGNOU for the class. They used to conduct classes on the other colleges which is mostly connected with IGNOU. There is no Wi-Fi facility, and library availability to IGNOU students. I am not aware about the games, sports and medical facilities .
    Faculty: I have not integrated with teachers. I could not say, that teachers are helpful, qualified, and knowledgeable. I may say that teachers are in a hurry to complete the syllabus as soon as possible. Teachers mostly gave overview of the chapters but not explain the chapters or lessons completely or in deep.
    Other: I would recommend that please provide classes on time to the students. Please provide library and sports facility to the IGNOU students. Good part of IGNOU is that it provides scholarship to the students on the basis of some criteria.

    A review of IGNOU - Indira Gandhi National Open University.
    Placements: MCA 3rd semester students are eligible for campus placements. However, there are limited opportunities, and not many companies participate, selecting a small number of students. The package generally ranges from 3 to 8 LPA. The percentage of students selected depends on the company, with some taking 60% while others take 70%. After completing the degree, all students plan for jobs and placements.
    Infrastructure: I rented a PG 2 km away from the college, which was affordable and managed by a family with excellent manners, providing a homely atmosphere. My PG charges Rs. 3700,, inclusive of rent, food, room, and other facilities. The PG is well-maintained and highly hygienic. Hostel Fee: INR 60000 per year.
    Faculty: Having completed my graduation in Bachelors in Computer Application, I aimed to enter the technical field, leading me to choose MCA. A senior recommended the NIT college entrance exam. There is adequate faculty for every course, ensuring quality education. The faculty members are highly qualified and knowledgeable in their respective fields. Each semester consists of two exams—one for the term and one for the end term. The exam difficulty level is moderate, and the faculty prepares students for what they need to write on the paper. Class size: 67 Course fee: INR 60000 per year.

    Very best college for pursuing M.A.
    Placements: For campus placements, students are eligible to sit for interviews and apply for jobs during the final semesters. A few companies that have visited the campus for placements in the last decade are: Line Group, Dabur India, Reliance Industries, Tata Motors, SPCL, and Infosys, to name a few. The highest package has been 18–20 LPA, and the average ranges from 8–12 LPA. Approximately 75% of students get placed in major companies in their first few years. In my case, I am preparing for the UGC NET exam to secure the minimum qualification for the post of assistant professor.
    Infrastructure: No, I am not staying in a hostel but I know very well about the condition of the rooms and the food given to students in the hostel. The hostel provides separate rooms for every student but those rules, which are bigger, were shared by the two individuals. They know they don't have PG every month for food and login; it costs around INR 5,000. The food is good but not up to par.
    Faculty: We have a semester pattern being followed and 4 semesters for 2 years of study. Each semester, we have 4 theory papers and 1 skill development paper. In the first year, we study the ancient history of the world and our nation. In the second year, we study the modern history of India and the role of history in the tourism department. We also have vivas at the end of each semester. The syllabus system motivates us to learn. Class size:-45 Course fee: INR 17000 per year.

    Q:   How will the lab classes be conducted if I join IGNOU for MSc Physics?

    A: 
    IGNOU offers M.Sc. Physics in the distance learning mode, which means that students can complete the theoretical coursework online or through self-study, but they may face challenges in accessing laboratory facilities. IGNOU conducts laboratory sessions in collaboration with partner institutions that offer laboratory facilities. During the M.Sc. Physics programme, students are required to attend practical laboratory sessions that are held at selected regional centers of IGNOU and other partner institutions. The practical sessions are conducted for a limited number of days and hours, usually on weekends or holidays. To attend laboratory sessions, students need to enroll themselves for the lab sessions by paying a separate fee for each lab course and selecting their preferred study center. The study centers are selected based on their proximity to the student's location. During the laboratory sessions, students will be provided with access to various lab equipment and tools required for conducting the experiments. Experienced lab instructors will guide the students through the experiments and provide assistance when required. It is important to note that laboratory sessions are a crucial component of M.Sc. Physics and students need to complete the lab sessions to fulfill the programme requirements. Therefore, it is recommended that students plan and schedule their laboratory sessions in advance to ensure they are able to attend them and complete the programme successfully.
