By imparting higher education through Urdu as the medium of instruction and by offering PG, UG, Diploma and Certificate Courses through the distance mode, MANUU ensures access and equity to all especially the disadvantaged groups. Moreover, the GoI policy on reservation is strictly implemented in the recruitment of faculty. The use of both print and electronic media to reach out to the unreached is the hallmark of the DDE programmes.
Right from the choice of the programmes to be offered, to the designing of the syllabus and implementing the same at the contact classes, the different departments of DDE ensure that the distinctive identity of Urdu university and its mandate is constantly under focus. The framing of syllabus with employability component, the introduction of courses bearing relevance to the present national and international needs and the contribution of the Directorate of Distance Education in providing instructional material in Urdu through large-scale translation work, helps translate the goals of MANUU into academic programmes.
