UGC Decided To Ban Physiotherapy Courses Through Distance Learning

UGC has banned physiotherapy course through distance learning mode. As the subject has large modules of practical teaching and cannot be imparted through distance learning mode, so it should be taught face to face. In its notice, UGC put forward that some of the universities are offering certificate, diploma, graduation and post graduation courses in physiotherapy through distance learning mode. Citing a previous order of Delhi High Court, UGC said that the court had held that professional courses should not be imparted through distance mode.
