Message From Vice Chancellor
I am glad that you are choosing Kurukshetra University, one of the premier institutions of higher learning in the country, for your higher education. In recognition of its commitment to excellence in teaching and research, KU has been awarded ‘A++’ grade by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) and placed at 8th position amongst the State Universities of the country in Category-I by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) and granted academic autonomy.

Established in 1976, the Directorate of Distance Education of KU is one of the oldest institutes in India. It has been facilitating learners from different backgrounds who did not have access to regular studies due to various reasons or who preferred arranging their studies around their work or family. With a strong innovative focus on its pedagogical, curricular, infrastructural and student service policies, the Directorate has been recognized as No. 1 institute of distance learning by Career 360 Survey.

In consonance with the emerging needs of the society and economy, the Directorate of Distance Education at KU has always added new courses, restructured the existing ones and designed new methods of delivery to its distance learners. Presently, the Directorate offers 45 courses at the postgraduate, undergraduate, diploma and certificate levels to its approximately 20,000 students. All the courses offered by the Directorate are recognized by the Distance Education Council and the students who pass out with our certificates, diplomas and degrees are allowed to join regular studies and take jobs in different professions in India and abroad.

Changing times require changes in student engagement and provision of facilities. In view of this, the Directorate has an interactive website (www.ddekuk.ac.in) for its existing and prospective learners. The admissions and delivery of study material is available online. The Directorate of Distance Education has taken many students’ friendly initiatives in the last one decade such as updating its study material, online forms, online fee gateway, Mobile App, SMS and E-mail services.

On behalf of the University, I wish you every success in your chosen program at Kurukshetra University.

Prof. Som Nath Sachdeva,
Kurukshetra University, Kurukshetra.
