Mode of study must on certificate: UGC
Kochi: The University Grants Commission has directed the universities offering distance education to mention the mode of delivery of the programme to avoid ambiguities. In a circular, UGC stated that some institutions/universities offering education through Open and Distance Learning mode issued e Degrees, Mark-sheets, Diploma, Certificates etc. to the students without indicating the mode of delivery of the programme.
The Commission, in its meeting held on 2nd September, 2016, has decided that all Universities should reflect the mode of delivery of programme on all the documents issued to students in order to erase ambiguities between conventional mode degree(s) with that of ODL mode degree(s).
Hence, all the Institutions/Universities offering programmes through ODL mode are essentially required to mention "Mode of deliveryl ODUDistance" on all the documents issued to students during or after the completion of programme.
