A list of UGC approved distance education universities in India that one can consider for their higher studies.

UGC Approved Distance Education Universities

In this competitive world of professionals, it is quite difficult to gain a foothold right from the beginning of the career. Where many students opt for the regular courses from renowned colleges and universities, a large number of students seek UGC approved distance education universities in India for their higher studies.

Nowadays, students are very concerned about the studies and are way ahead, in terms of knowledge, skills and learning, as compared to the students of earlier ages. Gone are those days when parents used to impose their career choices to their children. In these times, students start planning their career right from the age of 10 or so and select stream & course accordingly. While the competition of being on the top of the world is at its peak, plenty of students stuck between the modes of study they should opt for, i.e. Distance or Regular. Nevertheless, pursuing distance courses in India is still one of the hot topics of the debate in the education world. Where one set of students go for regular colleges, the other ones get into the dilemma whether the distance learning universities in India are worth enough or not.

Seeing the immense rise in the numbers of students seeking distance education in India, the amount of good distance learning universities is also increased. However, it also escalates the chances of universities being bogus. Where the University Grants Commission (UGC) became more focused towards the establishment of the distance universities, it also became aware of the quality of education the distance universities in India are providing.

Every year, UGC prepares a list where it segregates the universities as per their quality of education and credibility. Here, in this article, we have compiled a state-wise list of UGC approved Distance Education Universities in India for the year 2017.
