About University

The Indira Gandhi National Open University was established by an Act of Parliament in 1985 to spread higher education by making it available to the learners, providing an opportunity to high-quality education to students irrespective of age, region, religion and gender, offering a diverse range of academic programmes by giving professional and vocational orientation to the courses, and promoting and developing distance education in India.

Through its modular approach to socially and academically relevant programmes,

Resource sharing, collaboration and networking with conventional universities, open universities and other institutions/organisations, the system is based on students’ need analysis and convergence of open and conventional education systems.

Indira Gandhi National Open University offers Certificates, Diplomas, Advanced Diplomas, Post Graduate Diplomas and Degrees, which are traditional as well as innovative. Most of these courses have been launched after an initial survey of the need for such programmes.

They are introduced to fulfil the learners’ needs for certifications, skills enhancement, professional qualifications, continuing education and professional development at the workplace, self-enrichment, and diversification of knowledge and empowerment.
