    The principal objectives of the Correspondence Courses as introduced by the University of Burdwan are :

To provide a system of student-centred self-paced learning which will neither be entirely separate from nor wholly independent of the formal, full-time campus system of education as traditionally followed in University departments of studies. To provide means of improvement / upgradation of professional skills and competence of individuals who enjoy to take education as a life-long activity. To ensure, as far as feasible, appropriate value addition to career prospect of the studies in the context of prevailing market opportunities.
    Keeping all these objectives in view 6(six) Postgraduate Courses leading to M.A. / M.Com.

Since July 2006, the Correspondence Mode has been changed to Distance Education Mode under the advice and guidance of the UGC and the Distance Education Council.
