An person who is not able to attend classes but wants to pursue Traditional courses like M.Sc, M.Com, M.A., B.Sc., B.Com, B.Sc. etc, for them distance learning is a perfect solution. For example it suits so many people, like ladies who post their marriages feels that they have time to complete their higher studies but cannot go in person to attend classes due to family responsibilities, working professionals who has to do a job, any other person who does not have any good university nearby, someone who doesn’t feels comfortable in attending regular classes because of their age and many more.

These universities have probably been able to understand the feelings of such individuals and have thus incorporated this very useful format of distance learning traditional courses. Just not this, today so many new courses have come up that the traditional courses like degree in philosophy and psychology are not offered in many colleges. Many distance learning universities offer these courses and various other post graduate and under graduate courses.

Distance learning provides flexibility and ease to suit the requirements of the individual so that they can fulfil both their academic, professional and personal aspirations.

It is not only limited to the aspiring students but also there are many professionals who are in their thirties and forties and because of the ever changing business environment and demand they need to enhance their knowledge. For these professionals distance learning is an ideal format.

Knowledge can be taken at any age and the various courses offered through distance learning helps the people in achieving that. In India there are many many institutes and universities those provide distance learning programme. The mode of education has changed drastically from its traditional mode of classroom’s student-teacher teaching. It has now been changed to meet the requirement of various individuals and to reach all the corners of the country.

The distance learning traditional courses offered by these institutes helps the people to get what they want and they, by the help of increasing their knowledge horizon, can help in achieve their professional aspirations. Even getting a job is not easy these days and it has become imperative to constantly update one self. The competition is fierce and at these time personal problems and excuses cannot be an excuse; hence for those distance learning is of great help.

However there are people who think that distance learning cannot match the traditional form of learning as student-teacher interaction delivers much more than plain bookish knowledge. But it is also to be understood that education is not limited and confined in the four walls of the classroom. It is much more beyond that. Similarly a student, who wants to gain knowledge in a full sense, can achieve the same through distance learning also.
