The School of Open Learning [a part of the Campus of Open
Learning] formerly known as The School of Correspondence Courses and Continuing
Education, established under the University of
Delhi in 1962, is a pioneer Institution in the field of Distance
Education in India.
The country witnessed the beginning of an alternate mode of education when the School
started with a modest admission of 900 students in 1962. The School enrolled more than
two lakhs students in the Academic Session 2006-2007. On many occasions our students have
been toppers in various disciplines. The admission process for various courses in the School
is governed by the norms established by the University of Delhi. The examination is also
conducted by the University of Delhi. The University of Delhi confers the degree to the
students of the School as it does in the case of its other constituent colleges. There
is no differentiation in the course curriculum followed by the School of Open Learning
and other constituent colleges and Departments of the University of Delhi. In an effort
to cater to the needs of a growing number of students the School established the South Study
Centre at Moti Bagh from the academic session 1990-91. In an effort to reach out to a larger
number of students the school is in the process of opening up Study Centre in the Eastern
and the Western part of the National Capital Region of Delhi.
The School offers Undergraduate/Postgraduate Degree courses in the subjects of Arts/Humanities
and Commerce. The medium of instruction is primarily through well- prepared printed course material
which is distributed by mail to all the enrolled students. This is also supplemented
through Personal Contact Program conducted for the benefit of students at various
study centers run by the School. An experienced faculty is
always available at the main campus for academic interaction with students.
The School offers learning through the distance education mode which is a
viable alternative for students who need a flexible medium of instruction to attain
higher education and vocational skills.
In addition, the School maintains a well-stocked library to facilitate wide
exposure to contemporary developments in streams of courses offered. The School
also has a South Study Centre at South Moti Bagh, New Delhi.
