Founded in the year 1916, SNDT Women’s University, the first Women’s University of the country, established its Centre for Distance Education in the year 1979. The centre was formed with the clear intention of continuing with its mission of ‘Empowerment of Women’ through education. The centre focussed on the advantages that Distance and flexible education could bring to women in India. It was visioned to bring in liberalisation, flexibility and affordability to the masses.The Centre focussed on bringing in Professional and Job Oriented courses for the women students. Today, the Centre for Distance Education offers several Degree Courses, both at the graduation and the post- graduation levels. The Centre has also introduced a few short term Certificate and Diploma programs in various disciplines. The Centre proved to be a blessing to several women students who, for various reasons, could not complete their education and/or professional qualifications.
