A. CONCEPT OF TWINNING PROGRAMME
The Twinning Programme concept is yet another innovation of the Pondicherry University’s Directorate of Distance Education. It envisages a tie-up between the Directorate of Distance Education, Pondicherry University and another College/ Institution of repute. In this mode, the University enters MoU with prestigious Institutions endowed with human and physical resources and having excellent learning ambience.
These partner Institutions/ Colleges are referred as TWINNING CENTRES of the Directorate of Distance Education, Pondicherry University. The Twinning Centres organize all the important tasks on behalf of the University including admissions, conduct of classes during week-ends, semester examinations and liaisoning with the University in a more structured fashion under the strict supervision and guidance of the Pondicherry University.
The marked difference between the conventional Distance Education Programmes and the Twinning Programme is that classes in the former mode are conducted for Eight days in a semester (Personal Contact Programme) while classes are conducted more frequently during the evening hours and week-ends throughout the semester in the latter mode at the Twinning Centres.
