Dear Prospective learners,

Greetings from Chennai Regional Centre…

Indeed it is a matter of pleasure and opportunity for me to head this new regional office which is earmarked for the learners registered from Tamil Nadu and Puducherry.  Being the part of world’s largest open schooling system I am able to reach the unreached to complete their schooling which has touch the life of the learners. The success story and experience of the NIOS learner proves that NIOS has played a critical role in touching their self esteem by completing the schooling and entering to the path of progress. NIOS provides alternate source of schooling for those who could not or not in a position to avail the regular schooling for varied reasons which truly represent the inclusive education. The flexibility of NIOS is the great advantage for the learners to learn on their own pace, on their own choice of subjects and their own time of examination. Self motivated learners of NIOS makes a big difference in their life by pursuing passion without compromising on the education.

NIOS offers you the freedom to learn what you want, when you want and at your desired pace. NIOS caters to all categories of learners – the challenged learner, the average learner, and the academically bright ones. In the past two decades, NIOS has cut across all sections of society in India and has attracted a wide variety of self-motivated learners. NIOS is probably the only organization in the world with the maximum number of self-motivated students. NIOS has also debunked many myths commonly associated with schooling.

The present world of information and communication technology paves the way for the learners to be independent learner and go beyond the class room experience. NIOS is the boon for those who are on  the cross road to decide their career on innate talent or scarifies  on the cost of academic excellence in secondary and senior secondary exam. Many NIOS learners excelled in their life by pursuing their hobby as career without compromising on their academic qualification.

There is a lot more  to experience and enjoy while being a learner at NIOS. I wish you success and a well-balanced life. Let us join hands to fulfill the  motto of NIOS -‘Reach out to unreached’

Best wishes

Regional Director,
