              The International Centre for Distance Education and Open Learning (ICDEOL), Himachal Pradesh University extends a warm welcome to you for your keen interest in our Distance Education Programmes. The Himachal Pradesh University established in the year 1970 soon established Directorate of Correspondence Course(s) in the year 1971. The Himachal Pradesh University,  hence, became a pioneer Institution in North India with  setting its own Directorate of Correspondence Courses which subsequently was renamed International Centre for Distance Education and Open Learning. The prime objective has been to advance the frontiers of knowledge and promote its dissemination through sustainable, open and distance learning system.

              The ideas and ideals on which institutes are built evolve and change with national aspirations national perspectives and trends worldwide. International Centre for Distance Education and Open Learning is one such Institution that has always remained dedicated to cater to the changing educational needs of the learners all over. Keeping in view the emerging requirements of our Society, Industry and Nation, we have taken strenuous efforts to run the additional programmes as well.

              Centre has its own website, which displays all the important information, besides updates of admissions and examinations from time to time. The students can get the required information from this Website. I hope that the said information available on the website will help you to meet your quarries on all Academic issues.

              I would like to exhort all the learners willing to achieve knowledge and excellence in their lives, that they should extract the best from this Centre and contribute to the development of India through education they receive.

                       I wish a successful and bright future to all the learners.
