Vice-Chancellor’s Message

Dear Student,

Welcome to Allama lqbal Open University, the first Distance Education University in South
Asia, that caters to the educational needs of 1.3 million students to enable them to study at
their own place, at their own pace and at their own convenience. The University goes to the
doorsteps of the students, irrespective of the distance and location of students. One can become
a student of this university at any age as we consider education a life-long and continuous
process. The University has a vast menu of educational programmes at different levels, starting
from basic literacy programmes to the PhD programmes. The courses are regularly revised in
order to keep them contemporary, relevant, and internationally compatible. Self explanatory
course material helps the students to comprehend the course concepts without physical
presence of the teacher. The self-assessment activities, included in the books, help ensure the
acquisition of learning outcomes. This university offers maximum number of specializations at post-graduate level through
four faculties -Faculty of Arabic and Islamic Studies, Faculty of Education, Faculty of Sciences, and Faculty of Social
Sciences and Humanities. The faculty members at the university and a huge network of tutors, resource persons, specialists and
experts make sure that the courses being offered in these programmes enable the students to become independent learners and
critical thinkers. Post-graduate level studies invite you to critically examine what has already been done in your field of interest
and then research to offer innovations.

I welcome you to the postgraduate studies at AIOU and wish you a challenging yet successful journey ahead.

(Prof. Dr. Shahid Siddiqui)
