Mysuru, February 26:- MLA of Chamundeshwari Constituency and former minister GT Devegowda inaugurated K-SET examination training camp at Karnataka State Open University (KSOU) here on Tuesday.
“KSOU has been providing education to those who were not able to get a regular formal education. It has helped lakhs of students to get degrees and jobs. KSOU is also providing fee concession for students of SC/ST communities and women. Those who couldn’t complete their formal education can complete it at KSOU,” he said.
“The number of students studying in the Open University is more than regular universities. We have to appreciate KSOU for providing free training for banking, SDC, FDC, IAS, KAS, NET, KSET and other competitive exams. I have inaugurated this training with utmost happiness,” he added.
“KSOU has its importance in distance education. People of various age groups have built their lives with the help of KSOU. I wish the university to operate in all districts of the state. Details of courses available at the university should be informed to households. The university should also provide skill-oriented courses for students who have completed SSLC or PUC. This can help students from rural areas. As the regional centres of the open university are available at many districts, unemployed youths can be trained for available jobs,” he opined.
“The educational and cultural events, job fair, other training, national and international seminars being organised at the KSOU are attracting the public and students. The university has to maintain its good quality of education. The students attending the training can pass the competitive exams by studying with dedication. You should remember that you can achieve anything through hard work. Become good lecturers and contribute to the society,” he said.
Vice-Chancellor of KSOU Prof S Vidyashankar, Registrar of KSOU Prof Lingaraja Gandhi, Jainahalli Sathyanarayana Gowda and others were present. (MR/KS)
