On the 16th of June, 2014, U18 completed 5 years of its partnership with Karnataka State Open University.
And now its time to move on.
Our collaboration with Karnataka State Open University, or KSOU, was one of the first few for KSOU, as for us. Both of us benefitted both in terms of learning and the growth associated with it from this partnership. The partnership saw the launch of 7 Programs, over these 5 years, and thousands of students enrolling from India as well as overseas.
It was during the early days of this partnership that we at U18 got an opportunity to organize our first overseas exams (pen and paper at that time), out of a University in Dubai and a Convention hall at the local Hilton in Northampton , UK!
These experiences and many more like them have proven to be invaluable, in the way they’ve moulded U18’s present and future.
And now, its time to move on.
In an effort to improve the level of services we provide to our students, some time ago we took a decision to limit ourselves to working with only a select few Universities, ones that are dedicated to the ‘Online’ mode , rather than trying to make Online Education and its delivery systems coexist with existing brick and mortar channels.
With that in mind, we shall not be offering any new enrolments in any of our KSOU certified Programs, but would of course continue to work with the University towards the delivery and teach out of the students still enrolled.
We look back to these five years with a quiet sense of satisfaction, one that comes from a job well done.
