Directorate of Distance Education


SRMIST formerly known as SRM University has carved a niche for itself in the realm of higher education with a phenomenal growth over the years. It is accredited with A++ recently by NAAC and it is a Category I institution now and it is our pleasure to welcome you to be a part of this institution.

Distance education gives you the flexibility to acquire a university degree without needing to visit campus often. As a distance education student, you study the program content through a number of means including the use of online discussion forums, electronic library resources, by contacting Faculty and receiving all study materials online. Distance education programs at SRMIST can be pursued without time and place constrains.

There is a variety of ways that students can complete their studies through distance learning. The main feature of this is that in general, students are not required to be physically present in the classroom, and this gives them the freedom to study from anywhere and whenever they want. However, students would stand to benefit through face to face contact.

In the past, there were various approaches to this type of study, including the use of printed material, videos, audio-tapes, and CD-ROMs. More recently there has been a shift to the use of email and the social networking sites, and now many distance programs are offered online using various Learning Management Systems. Our experienced team of staff is dedicated to providing you with a high level of support, to offer a number of services that are available for use at any time from wherever you may be studying.
