Career through Correspondence Course after 10+2 and beyond

Keeping pace with the latest information about careers and courses has been a daunting task. Today there exist undergraduate and Postgraduate courses in all subjects.

Undergraduate courses are aimed to provide basic knowledge in all operational areas of particular subject. The undergraduate courses may be termed as Bachelors degree.

The nomenclature makes no real difference. These courses are conducted by Universities and provide admission to +2 students from all subject streams.

Admission to some prestigious Universities is made through a selection examination. Correspondence education has brought about a tremendous change in the education system of our country.

It is predicted that in the next two decades of the coming century teachers from conventional teaching would ‘perform live’ to learn across the country with the help of satellite communication, low power transmitters and through the information super-highways. The beginning has been made.

There are 14 Open Universities and 75 regular Universities and many other institutions running distance learning programs in our country. The emergence of the distance learning mode is providing benefits to many categories of learners in particular to :

  • Late entrants,
  • People who do not have access to highest education in their place of stay,
  • People on the job and
  • To those who wish to supplement their educational qualifications.

Open Universities offer flexible courses options which can be taken by entrants who may not have any formal qualification but have reached the required age (18 – 20 years for 1st degree courses) and also have cleared a written entrance test.

The courses can be taken at the student’s pace. Distance education centers of Universities grant admission to candidates who fulfill minimum eligibility which is the same as for regular courses.

Correspondence educational institutions provide students with course materials, contact classes and conduct examinations. Most of the teaching learning process incorporates printed learning material as well as the multimedia facilities set up at nodal centers or through the Television and Radio networks.

These Universities offer graduate courses, postgraduate courses, M. Phil., Ph. D. and also diploma and certificate courses many of which are career oriented.
