Bihar is a densely populated state with an approximate population of over 10 crores, but the State has the lowest literacy percentage in the entire country (only about 55-60%). As such, it is essential that Bihar makes an all out effort to leap forward in spreading education and improving its performance on the literacy front.

The University offers courses in higher learning through open and distance learning (ODL) mode of education to the students of the State of Bihar in particular and other students of the country in general who have been denied admission in conventional institutions or who are unable to study in such institutions as day boarders, but are still desirous to upgrade their educational attainments. The courses offered by the University are innovative, job oriented and self satisfying. To provide flexibility in enrolment to various courses of higher education in matters, like, age of entry, choice of courses, methods of learning, conduct of examination, operation of programmes etc. To provide special facilities, through distance mode of education, to individuals and groups, like, elderly people, in-service personnel, housewives, people living in remote areas, socially disadvantaged people and others to upgrade their skill and acquire higher academic qualifications. You can’t be successful if you don’t try; failures always take you a step closer to success. Best of luck!
