    Recently, I was looking for a quality distance education and found Sikkim Manipal University. It has got all what I was looking for in a distance education. It has more than 600 learning centers in India with flexible innovative curriculum. But what makes SMU-DE (Sikkim Manipal University of Distance Education) stand apart is how they make the distance education as stimulated as Live classrooms and now its enhanced with their new feature called as Edunext. Anybody who is looking for a distance-learning/correspondence course, I would recommend SMU-DE. The admissions are open for fall 2009. For more information please check the website.

    If you want to get Degree without living your job distance education is best option for you. There are many distance learning universities but choosing the best is very necessary .Some of the best universities are Amity, Symbiosis, Sikkim manipal .But on my experience Sikkim Manipal University distance program is much better than other distance learning Institute it’s my personal advice coz I’ve also complete my BBA & MBA from this University. SMUDE uses the latest edunxt technology to create a virtual classroom where you can interact with the faculty and students and thereby also network with other students, which is a unique and one of its kind feature amongst other colleges offering distance education. For the prospectus and speaking to their counsellor you can register for free
