Distance Education is growing fast and becoming popular among students. Distance Education is a source for motivated people who wish to achieve their educational goals, enhance their qualification and skill or who wish to join the work force or the education system after a break. The system is providing a great opportunity to the students from lower strata of the society, employed work force, house wives, working women, dropouts and professionals who could not achieve their educational targets for several socio-economic, cultural and geographic constraints and now wish to enhance their qualifications.
The demand for quality education is growing, and presently it is met by only a few accredited universities and institutions within the country. It gives me immense pleasure to inform you that University of Peshawar which is one of the best University in Pakistan and more than a fifty years old great seat of higher learning, also committed to provide quality distance education to its learners.
