The trend for higher and specialised education is changing in India. While traditional classroom-based learning was preferred for decades, today distance learning programs have an equal share if not more. Arguably the biggest reason for this is the perfect blend of theoretical +practical knowledge one stands to gain as a result of not having to leave their job.
As goes with most crucial decisions in life, choosing a good institute for a distance learning program is imperative. Not only does it set the foundation for robust career growth, but it also gets you a competitive edge in a crowded job market.

5. Assessment System Suitable for Professionals’ Needs
Working professionals have long working hours, often interspersed with tight deadlines and demanding managers. But learning cannot take a backseat due to this.
Which is why SCDL’s programs are based around a simple but effective solution – computer-based assignments and on-demand examinations – allowing students to decide their speed and style of learning. Now, having to prioritise between learning and daily work schedule won’t be a challenge.
6. Interactive Student Communication Channels
A key element of any distance learning program must be open, effective and interactive two-way communication. At SCDL we provide robust support to students in terms of a dedicated call centre with counsellors to give prompt guidance. Additionally, there is also an internet-enabled communication centre to handle all student queries promptly & effectively.
7. Industry-focused Placement Assistance
As discussed in point no. 2 of this list, it is important for a leading distance learning institute to have strong industry ties. Besides being a provider of education to top corporate organisations, SCDL’s superlative market reputation helps us provide high-quality placement assistance to students.
In fact, due to our industry-leading programs, SCDL is one of the preferred distance learning institutes in the country for recruitments.

As a distance learning student, it could happen that one doesn’t want to fully commit to an entire program. This could be due to workplace challenges, a foreseeable shift in the industry or some other reason. SCDL offers students an option to take single courses and accumulate credits for future transfer to other programs of SCDL. This paves the way for flexible learning paths.
9. Approved by AICTE
How does any institute prove its credibility? By being approved by the Government of India’s apex advisory body for technical education - All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE).
