List of approved distance education universities in India - While life can be too demanding for some of us, others would take up jobs at life’s early stages, leaving some of the educational aspirations at bay. On the other hand, a few among us may have been stuck at a particular position or role at our workplaces for a long time due to our low ranking in some specific professional parameters. There are myriads among us whose circumstances do not leave them at liberty to pursue what they aspire to, and securing a degree or diploma in no exception. There may be some who may also not have the liberty like their peers to be stationed at a particular place and attend regular classes.

However, as they say, “Better late than never”, you can always begin, the moment you realize that you have to accomplish what you left without even trying long back. The answer to your disquiet is getting a correspondence certificate/diploma/degree.

But though you may follow your inner calling, it does not simply end there (as a fairy tale). You may end up landing into an open programme wherein the diploma/degree does not hold any validity. This means your degree may not be recognized. So, what is needed in such a case – knowing the validity of the degree/diploma of the college/university/institute beforehand, which would save you from future regrets. University Grants Commission (UGC) publishes a list of approved/recognised institutes every year which offer distance/open learning programmes. For 2019-20 too, the UGC has published a list of approved universities to offer open or distance learning programmes. Check the list of UGC recognised universities which offer educational programmes in distance learning mode and zero upon your choice.
