Message from coordinator

The Self Study Centre is situated by the Chiromo Library and is a support facility for the entire University community. Its existence is part of the University wide move towards excellence and in this particular case demonstrating the commitment to the promotion of the practices that inculcate and develop the culture of lifelong individualized scholarly pursuits and endeavors. 


The Self Study Centre enables the individual and self directed learners who are members of the University community to express their full potential in seeking and exploring knowledge.  The support is provided for those who are curious, for those who need to deepen their understanding, for those who want to catch up, for those want to refresh their knowledge, for those who want to extend their perspectives, for those who want to enhance their professionalism, for those who are doing research, and for those who are looking for some specialized or social skills that are not immediately available in the existing or conventional programs.


The Self Study Centre currently provides a quiet study lounge, a group discussion room and a video room. The study area has several personal computers, with Internet connectivity, that the individual learners can use. If the learners have their computers or tablets then they can use the University wide WifFi connectivity that is available. This nature of support will be extended to be fully technology mediated so that the resources will be accessible outside the Self Study Centre premises using the modern tools.  The centre also encourages research and is open to collaborations with those who are engaged in promoting similar accomplishments for the self directed learner,  such as e-learning or online programs.


Our vision is to be a leading Self Study Centre that is situated in a World Class University.


Our mission is to facilitate access to knowledge for the individual and group development in the local and wider community. We endeavor to fulfill our mission by providing several resources such as tutorial software, reading materials,  discussion area, access to computers and Internet connectivity, experimental kits, productivity software, development software and electronic course-ware.
