Top Distance Learning Institutes in Gujarat

Gujarat is located in the Western region of India and is home to many top-notch higher education institutes. Besides the regular universities, it has certain distance learning education organisations that provide opportunities to many students to pursue their dream of higher education. The distance education mode has made it convenient for a large section of population to go for higher studies.

Contemplating the need and demand of distance learning institutes in Gujarat, some universities have come up with distance education to reach to the remotest areas of the state. These institutes have been a boon for those who are not able to complete or continue their higher education through conventional college, for any reason. Moreover, these institutes help the less-advantaged section of the society, which includes working professionals and housewives, to pursue their dream subjects at higher education.

1. Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar Open University – Established in 1994, Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar Open University is the seventh open university of the nation in terms of the establishment. Due to its quality of education and the variety of courses offered by highly-qualified and experienced faculty, it ranks among the top ten distance learning institutes in India.

It offers 38 courses in total from which over one lakh students have been benefited. The campus of the University is situated at Ahmedabad. With its gradual popularity, it has opened over 250 Regional Centres in and around the state of Gujarat. The admission is open to any cast, creed, religion and gender.

The University is divided into four different schools – Humanities & Social Sciences, Commerce and Management, School of Education and School of Computer Science. It works with the main motive of promoting higher education and encouraging educational well-being of the society. The concept of distance education in India has been made popular and beneficial by IGNOU in Delhi and after that Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar Open University has played a crucial role in continuing the same.

2. Gujarat Vidypith – Founded in 1920, this University was started by Mahatama Gandhi. Following his principles of adherence to truth and non-violence, this University is an emblem of Mahatama Gandhi’s concept of education.

Gujarat Vidyapith offers a number of different courses through its distance learning education program. These are offered at both undergraduate and Post Graduate level. Students can opt for degree programs or prefer to go for short-term diploma or certificate programs in their chosen area.

After Independence in 1963, Gujarat Vidyapith was moulded into a deemed university. Today it is governed by the UGC and is considered among the top universities of Gujarat. It is highly modern in its methodologies of imparting education, the structure and the curriculum. However, it still maintains its dedication to the Gandhian ideals.

3. IGNOU - Besides these two premier distance learning institutes in Gujarat, the state has some study centres of Indra Gandhi National Open University. It offers a number of courses n different disciplines to help students soar in their career. The courses offered include Bachelor’s Preparatory Program Certificate in Food & Nutrition, Bachelor of Commerce, Bachelor of Arts, Certificate in Computing, Certificate in Tourism Management, Certificate in Tourism Marketing, Certificate in PC Software, Certificate in Child Care & Development and many more. The study centres of IGNOU are located in Ahmedabad, Surat, Vadodara, Bhuj, Anand, Bhavnagar, Rajkot, Mehsana, Jam Nagar, Bharuch, Modasa and Gandhinagar.
