The Directorate of Distance Education Centre, Sri Padmavati Mahila Visvavidyalayam was established in 2000 with the objective of providing professional education to women in Andhra Pradesh, and making them self-reliant.

About the Directorate of Distance Education Centre

Directorate of Distance Education caters to the academic needs of the students who cannot pursue formal college education. Flexibility in entry qualification, pace of learning at will and the use of appropriate educational technology are generally associated with this type of off-campus studies. In a country like India where majority of the people are uneducated or less educated and under- privileged the mode of Directorate of Distance Education is most desirable.

The problem and incidence of dropping out from regular courses, and not being able to pursue their studies after that is more among women. Directorate of Distance Education fulfills educational needs of such women. The Directorate of Distance Education Centre of Sri Padmavati Mahila Visvavidyalayam, Tirupati was started in the year 2000-2001 with the Executive Council's Permission (E.C. Resolution No. (04-02) dated 24-01-2000).

The Directorate of Distance Education Centre offers the following courses of Study through Correspondence.

Only women candidates are eligible to apply.
