Age no bar, IQ no bar, lack of conventional classrooms no bar. Wherever the Indian postal service can go, so can IGNOU.
Educational systems have become ridden with competition, and more and more people find out too late that their qualifications are inadequate, or that they do not have the time or the money for, or the accessibility to, higher study. Enter the open university system, where the only qualifications required are basic schooling, one eye, and a will to learn.
The Indira Gandhi National Open University was established in 1985 to democratise higher education, and now has hundreds of study centers across the country where more than 11 lakh students of all ages take the programs. All-India Radio, Doordarshan, typed material and AV tools are used in the learning centers as methods of imparting knowledge. Now IGNOU has branched out, and is lending support to students in 19 Commonwealth, Gulf and African countries, offering scholarships to meritorious students as well.
Open education has given many disadvantaged people a chance for a better future, and IGNOU is one of the better universities to avail yourself of that at. And if you do a good job, you'll probably not end your sentences with prepositions like that.
