Distance learning is a mode of education which gives you the flexibility and choice to join any course, irrespective of where you live and where the institute is based. Through this education system, you can join your dream course with any institutions which based anywhere in the world.
This mode of education is helpful for all in different scenarios:
- Whether you are a student who has to do a job but wants to continue his/her study also
- You are living in a small city and can't go for higher studies to a big city like Delhi / Mumbai etc.
- You are living in a remote or rural area and can't go to regular classes
- you are already employed who wants to do a professional course for career enhancement
- Already employed person who wants to switch the career, but needs to do a related course but can't leave the current job
- A housewife who just want to do her dream course but can't go to college / university to attend regular classes
This system not only gives you the chance to do your dream course from home but it's also cost effective. As the fees of colleges/universities are higher for regular courses and there are other expenses also added to course fees. Doing any course through this mode is less costly.
