Vardhaman Mahaveer Open University

Kota, Rajasthan | Ratings: 2/5 - Add Review

Vardhaman Mahaveer Open University, also known as Kota Open University, was established in 1987 as a pioneering distance learning institution in Rajasthan. The UGC Committee, headed by the late Prof. G. Ram Reddy, observed that "the distance system in Rajasthan is well established and has the potential of growing into a full-fledged Open University," which gave rise to the idea of establishing an open university in the State of Rajasthan.

The primary goal of VMOU Kota is to provide educational opportunities to a larger population, particularly disadvantaged groups like SC/ST, rural and remote residents, women, in-service workers, and others. VMOU has seven regional centres across all the major cities of Rajasthan and a special centre in New Delhi. It offers admission to the UG, PG, Diploma, and Certificate Programmes in various disciplines at its designated study centers. The streams include Science, Computer Science, Humanities, Literature, Education, etc.
