The Common Services Centers (CSC) and Amity University Online are joining hands to provide graduate and post-graduate courses for rural areas in India.
According to the report, an estimated 15 lakh students in rural areas across the country can now access these benefits.
In the first phase, Amity's courses including BA, BCom, BCA, BBA, and MCA will be made available to students through over 5,000 CSC Academy centers, the education and CSR wing of CSC. Some of the courses will also be made available in Hindi.
Once the student enrolls for a course at the CSC Academy center, he or she will be able to attend online classes of Amity.
According to Ajit Chauhan, Chairman, Amity University Online, “Our endeavor is to bring grassroots level change and enable professionals in remote areas of India. We hope more and more villages are able to benefit through this initiative.”
“It is always heartening to see when an education provider looks beyond to create an impact on the society. We are partnering with CSC Academy and their penetration in the remotest parts of India will light up the dreams of the masses to get quality education within their reach,” said Priya Mary Matthew, Director, Academics, Amity University Online.
