About MSU

Manonmaniam Sundaranar University (MSU) named after the famous Tamil Scholar Professor P. Sundaram Pillai, was established on 7 September, 1990. The University has under its jurisdiction 61 affiliated colleges, 5 Mano Colleges and 1 Constituent College, with 65,000 students on rolls. These colleges, amongst which three are over 100 years old (St. John’s College, M.D.T. Hindu College, Sarah Tucker College, the oldest women’s college in the state).

The University Grants Commission, New Delhi, an apex higher education body of the Union Government, has accorded its approval for getting financial assistance since 29 March 1994. The University has been accredited by National Assessment and Accreditation Council of India with five star status. The University Act authorizes the functioning of Directorate of Distance and Continuing Education outside the university jurisdiction and the courses offered through this mode are recognized by the Distance Education Council of India.

In a recent study conducted by World Bank it has been found that the role of human capital in development is far more important than physical capital. The average ratio of human capital to physical capital is 80:20 in most developed countries, while in developed countries it is 64:36. Even underdeveloped Sub-Saharan African countries have achieved 50:50. For India, it has been estimated that access to at least 20% of the relevant age group, between 17 and 23, in higher education is necessary to ensure development on a par with the needs of the day. In this context the role Distance Learning System can play needs no elaboration. The pursuit of knowledge is a life-long process and once the elders, unmindful of their age, are convinced about this the youths will also get motivated to take to higher education in a big way.

Gone are the days when the students of “External System,” Distance Education Mode in Indian context, were considered inferior to students passed out of regular colleges or universities. Out University, committed to the principles of ‘expansion, equity and excellence’ has taken care that candidates awarded degrees and diplomas under Distance Learning Programme have attained the same academic standard, irrespective of the mode or place of study.
