What is IGNOU?

Founded in 1985, Indira Gandhi National Open University—also referred to as IGNOU or IGNOU University—is regarded as one of the leading names in part-time and distance learning in India. In 1987, the Indira Gandhi National Open University in Delhi started off with just two programs and a student body of about 4,500. Currently, the university provides services to over three million students both in India and internationally via its network of 67 regional centers, 21 schools, and 29 partner institutions abroad. More than 200 programs are available at the certificate, diploma, degree, and doctorate levels through IGNOU. IGNOU holds two admission cycles, one in January and one in July. Most courses have online registration openings in November for the January semester, and in May or June for the July session.
