Allama Iqbal Open University AIOU Admissions Open Spring 2024 Education For All International Students

One of the first universities to give the general public remote access to education is Allama Iqbal Open University (AIOU). Its primary goals when it was founded in May 1974 were to give everyone access to education and support those unable to leave their homes or places of employment. The university has given working people access to education and placed girls right at their doorstep. With its innovative approach to professional, scientific, and technological education, AIOU is reaching out to even the most remote regions of Pakistan. British Prime Minister Harold Wilson first proposed the concept of distance education in the UK in the late 1960s. He believed that people who may have missed out on a better education because of an early job must be given the chance to further their education if they want to improve their knowledge and abilities in their free time during the nights at home.

When the AIOU was founded in 1974, it was the first Open University in Asia and Africa and the second globally. Thanks to it, millions of working people now have more opportunities, and it has grown into one of Pakistan’s leading educational institutions since then. The institution offers remote learning, which has given millions of people women in particular new options and systematically augmented the efforts of the federal and provincial governments without placing an undue strain on their resources. AIOU offers Masters, MPhil, and Ph.D. programs to develop professionals and enhance research capabilities in teaching and research institutions. The university has a well-established Institute of Educational Technology (IET) having in-house facilities for the production of TV, Radio, and non-broadcast programs.


The largest distance-learning university in Asia, Allama Iqbal Open University, principally focuses on meeting the educational demands of the general public by blending geographical and temporal borders and offering high-quality instruction at everyone’s doorstep. Presently, the university provides exceptional educational possibilities in a wide range of exciting programs from matriculation to the doctorate to a staggering 1 million students.


The university’s exclusive concentration is on raising the percentage of female literacy in the nation so that women may carry out their essential role in the process of advancement and development of the nation. The university makes special efforts for the poor and disenfranchised members of society in order to both empower them economically and reduce poverty in the nation.
