There is strong administrative back up provided to the School to facilitate smooth and efficient functioning. The School takes help of a large number of experts in various fields to run its programmes more effectively. The office of the School is located in Pune.
Bharati Vidyapeeth University is an academic institution with social commitment. It has made high quality education available to a large number of students through its constituent units. The University is aware that almost 90% of the students, belonging to the college going age-group i.e. 17-21 years, do not get opportunities for higher education because of numerous difficulties, such as, residential locations in rural and tribal areas, financial constraints, and other personal time limitations on account of employment or household chores etc.
Considering that it is its responsibility to provide educational opportunities to such deprived students – rural, tribal, poor and women population, the University has established this School of Distance Education. Through this School, the University makes high quality education available to the students registered with it. The School makes available all the necessary amenities to the students enrolled with it to accelerate their self learning.
