      The fees charged by the university is highly affordable. As I belong to a poor family, I couldn't have a afford the fees of big private universities and colleges. Also, the regional centers are also good. I am getting great help and support from the teachers.

      I was also able to complete an internship with a leading firm because the distance learning course allowed me to have a lot of time in my hands. If you want to, you can also pursue a full time job while pursuing a course from this university.

      Remarks -

      Placements open doors for distance learning students are very little. Institute composes work reasonable yearly for the students, anyway the situation and bundles offered during the reasonable are not extremely worthwhile. A large portion of the understudy depend on their own push to get great jobs.

      At this university, there were very fewer chances of placement and jobs and generally, students prefer to do matters program after a bachelor's degree. The internship opportunities were for the master's students as they were applying for a decent job.
