Directorate of Distance Education Program


It is a matter of great pleasure for me to express my views on Distance Education Learning Program. Sindh province is especially blessed with immeasurable talent but there is need to awaken the dormant education qualities of the youngsters especially in rural areas. Hence to accomplish the task of talent awakening, Distance Education Program has been launched by Shah Abdul Latif University with the collaboration of Higher Education commission of Pakistan. Basically, private students who pursue graduate and master program are lagged behind in maintaining the qualities of competitive world. To bridge the vacuum of quality education, the distance learning program is the only effective device to equip the students with modern teaching methods in the arena of education.

Moreover, it has been kept in constant view to facilitate the poor people who are doing jobs for this reason, therefore only Sunday classes have been arranged. To inculcate the modern education teachings among students, fast means of communications in the shape of multi-media, CDs, power point lectures and use of social media have been arranged so that level of students may be at par with other recognized universities. This program will also strengthen the basic foundation of the students.

In the end, I hope that this program will be a milestone towards higher education. The renowned Prof. Dr. Parveen Shah as Vice Chancellor of this university is fully committed towards the successful suitability of this program and her constant encouragement has empowered all the team members in launching this program


The objectives of establishing a separate Directorate of Distance Education in the University are:

I.      To facilitate private candidates at Graduate and Master level who cannot afford the facility of getting education as regular students.

II.     To narrow the quality gap between private and regular students.

III.    To increase the success ratio of private students in the examinations and to ultimately improve the opportunities of employment for them.

IV.   To build capacity of large Public Sector Universities to deliver quality education to private students.

V.    To build capacity of Universities to deliver material for private students.

VI.   To streamline administrative procedures to provision of quality education to private students.



Currently the Directorate offers the following two years Masters programs.
