Indira Gandhi National Open University has prolonged its outreach beyond the borders of the country. The globalization of higher education, mainly via the distance mode of shipping, has given an altogether exceptional angle to the go-border transport of  IGNOU’s academic packages in numerous international locations. The International Division seems after the international operations of the University. The Division  established on 16 October, 1997 as a Cell and was upgraded to the fame of a full-fledged Division in 2002. From 1996 onwards, the International Division has been assigned the task of offering and promoting the academic programs of  IGNOU by way of organizing bilateral and multilateral co-operations with numerous partner institutions and organizations/universities throughout the globe.
