KKHSOU is priviledged to have been entrusted by the Government of Assam with the responsibility to train the untrained teachers with a Teachers’ Training Programme through the distance mode. Accordingly, the university developed the two year programme named Diploma in Elementary Education (DEl.Ed.) which came into functioning in 2012. This programme is the first of its kind in the North East of India. The curriculum of this programme has been designed with the help of experts from DEC (IGNOU), and the local experts taking into account the NCIE guidelines and National Curriculum Framework for Teacher Education. After finalizing the curriculum, through several meetings and consultation, it was submitted to NCTE through SSA Mission following which NCTE had given approval to the programme. The programme comprises two years, and the in-service teachers selected / nominated / deputed by the Government of Assam (through SSA Mission) are only eligible to undertake this training programme.

BPP Programme

In the traditional universities, only 10+2 pass students are qualified to take admission intp the degree courses. As a mandate of open universities, K.K. Handiqui State Open University gives opportunity to those who have not passed 10+2 and have attained 19 years of age on 1st April of the year of admission but are desirous of undergoing higher studies. For such persons, the university offers this Bachelor Preparatory Programme (BPP) of two-year duration to qualify themselves and to make admission into the degree programmes. Those learners who could not pursue education for various reasons but have the potential and zeal to fulfil their hidden desire of acquiring higher education can take advantage of this programme. Those who can not clear BPP programme in one sitting will be given the opportunity to clear the examinations in four attempts (within four years). However, such learners shall be required to pay the examination fees each time they appear in examination. Learners failing to pass the BPP in four attempts, shall be allowed re-admission in BPP on payment of full course fees.
* Blind learners who enroll into the BPP programme of Stream 1(BPP for BA/BMC) will be offered Education and Sociology (50 marks each, assignment 10 marks each) in lieu of Basic Mathematics in both first and second year. Assignments in Audio format can also be accepted.

1. Educational qualification for admission to BCA is generally 10+2 pass in science. But those who have passed Higher Secondary (10+2) in Arts and Commerce and yet desire to enrol in Bachelor of Computer Application (BCA) shall have to clear Stream 3 (BPP for BCA) of first year of the programme for their eligibility. It should be noted that candidates having Higher Secondary (10+2) qualifications with either Mathematics or Computer Science as one of the papers and have passed the same are eligible to take admission into BCA programme. Candidates not having passed either Mathematics or Computer Science at 10+2 stage shall have to clear first year course of Stream 3 (BPP for BCA)
2. Again, those who have already passed Higher Secondary (10+2) in Arts and desire to enrol in B.Com or BBA will have to clear Stream 2 (BPP for B.Com/BBA) of first year of the program for their eligibility.
Such learners may be directly enrolled into the BCA programme provided they simultaneously take admission in the BPP (Stream 3 courses only) in the first semester itself. Only on successful completion of the Papers of Stream 3 of BPP will they be eligible for award of certificates, diploma and degree.
