SAF Regional Cooperation Seminars - Dr. B.R. Ambedkar Open University

Conference Hyderabad, India - 2nd May 2007

BRAOU is situated right in the middle of  Jubilee Hills, near the outskirts of Hyderabad, making it easily accessible from both the city and rural areas. Apart from being the very first Open University, BRAOU offers interesting and important programmes, such as various Bachelors of Science and Arts degrees.  The University will soon introduce a Masters of Science Distance Learning programme as well.

The turnout of the seminar was excellent; I was told that almost 98% of the 400 students showed up.  As the weather was oppressively hot, the seminar was kept short, The Vice Chancellor Mr. Ramachandram spoke briefly (in Telegu) about SAARC and its initiatives, and how the students can promote the ideals of SAF at a local level, by encouraging them to become members through the website and take part in our programmes.

Although BRAOU provides financial aid to its students
(INR 10 is taken from each students fee’s towards a Financial Aid Trust), the SAF Madanjeet Singh Scholarships are, till date,
the only scholarships offered to the University.
