About DU SOL

The University of Delhi offers UG and PG programs to candidates who wish to apply for admission through distance learning. Every year, applicants are invited to check in to avail themselves of admission. The admission is tentatively based on a merit list to be published within September.

The 12th five-year plan aims to achieve a 30% GER from the present 15% GER of students in the higher education segment. Attracting larger numbers from the student segment demands not only accessibility but also affordability, flexibility, and relaxation in the eligibility criteria. With these workable and viable parameters, distance learning serves as the rider to mass education and can considerably expand its scope to bring in more students to continue their education.

Distance learning has grown in shape and size, accounting for 22% of the total GER of students in the higher education segment. Considering the needs of the Indian masses who want to pursue higher education while continuing to work, distance education can be the bridge for aspiring students/working professionals to achieve their dreams. The areas, which can bolster the initiatives of distance learning in India, are:

Remote accessibility:

At present, India has 544 universities and 3132 colleges. The mushrooming universities in the country have not delivered easy access to students from remote areas. According to a survey, close to 24% of all higher education enrolments are from the ODL system. Distance Learning Universities can focus on opening information/learning centers in regions with low GER but vast student potential to boost this percentage. Given the internet penetration in the country, the online medium of training and studying can be adopted in regions with a prominent internet presence.

Innovative pedagogy for higher employability:

As the competitive job industry looks for a skilled workforce, students with industry-relevant knowledge about the subjects they have studied have a brighter chance of landing the right job. Through cutting-edge course modules, industry-oriented training with the right balance between practical and academic training makes a distance learning course more relevant in the modern-day scenario. For instance, SMU-DE’s online platform EduNxt features many avenues for the all-around learning and development of its students and has a vast student base.
