Study Material:

In each course, soon after enrollment ordinarily 10 to16 lessons/study material covering the entire syllabi in a semester/year is sent to the students. Eminent scholars and teachers prepare these lessons, preferably Professors and Readers in the Universities and in some cases senior lecturers.


The students are required to submit written responses to each assignment prescribed at the end of the lesson in accordance with the schedule as may be laid down by the ICDEOL.

Personal Contact Programmes :

Personal Contact Programmes (PCP) are arranged for the benefit of the students at the different places depending upon the strength of the students.

The Himachal Pradesh University took the bold step right in the beginning and a Directorate of Correspondence Courses was set up after the establishment of the University (1971). Not only this, the University emerged as a pioneering institution in launching the programmes of distance education at the postgraduate level. In India, the H.P.University was the first University to start Master of Arts in different disciplines along with Master of Education and Master of Commerce. Over the years, its Directorate of Correspondence Courses gradually absorbed the emerging philosophy of distance education and adopted multi-media approach for imparting instruction. In view of this, the Directorate of Correspondence Course has been rechristened as the International Centre for Distance Educational and Open Learning (ICDEOL). It is located on the Campus of the University at Summer Hill. It has its own independent complex consisting of two buildings having five stories each.
