UGC bans these courses in distance mode


The University Grants Commission (UGC) has prohibited imparting distance degree programmes in agriculture.

The decision was taken by the higher education regulator at its last meeting on the ground that a degree programme in agriculture is technical in nature as it requires practicals or laboratory courses.

As per the new rules, agriculture and related courses will also be considered professional and institutes cannot deliver degree programmes in the field in open or distance mode anymore. Under the new rule, many institutes will have to shut their courses or tweak the degree programme.

The list of other degree courses not allowed to be imparted through distance mode include - engineering, medicine, dental, pharmacy, nursing, architecture, physiotherapy and agriculture.
