Amity University and CSC collaborate to provide higher education to rural students.

 


Being a private University, Amity has never been behind when it comes to providing quality education. Recently Amity joins hands with Common Services Centers (CSCs) to provide higher education to rural students. 


It is estimated that approx 15 lakh students in rural areas can now be able to access undergraduate and postgraduate courses with this collaboration of Amity University Online and CSC. Courses like BA, BCom, BCA, BBA, and MCA will be available for the students through over 6000 CSC Academy centers, the Education and CSR wing Of CSC.  Also, courses like BA and BCom will be made available in Hindi considering the language barrier faced by students in rural India. When students will enroll through the CSC Academy center, they will be able to join Amity's online classes. Also, Amity is going to develop special courses for students, which will be offered through CSC Academy. Amity's Online team will offer extensive assistance to students throughout the enrolment process.

Our endeavor is to bring grassroots-level change and enable professionals in remote areas of India. We hope rural and remote India can benefit through this initiative." 


MD, CSC SPV, Dr. Dinesh Tyagi, explaining the collaboration said, "We have endeavored to provide quality education to students and youth in rural areas, particularly to women who miss out on higher education due to societal inequality and patriarchy. Our association with Amity Online is a significant step in that direction and meets the Prime Minister's vision of Digital India fulfilling the educational needs of rural India. Partnership with Amity will also help us reach out to rural youth with future skills like AI, Machine Learning, and BlockChain." Also, the Director, Academics of Amity University Online, Dr. Priya Mary Mathew noted, "It is always heartening to see when an education provider looks beyond to create an impact on the society.
