KSOU - Karnataka State Open University

Currently, education has become priority for all the classes and groups in the society. Every individual needs to have education at least to the minimum level and training, in order to earn daily bread and butter. Therefore, the government has launched various schools and educational organizations to teach the masses. However, there are some groups which are economically deprived and cannot afford regular teachings. Also, some people have to discontinue their education due to other personal priorities. For such people, education through open universities is a best option. Karnataka State Open University (KSOU) is one of such organizations.
