These two manuals aim to provide guidance for the universities and ETIS to promote institutionalization of good practices and standards as a means of improving quality and relevance of EDPs. The manuals will be used by UGC-QAAC from 2014 for review and accreditation of EDP programs offered by degree awarding universities and ETIs offering instructional training for students registered for EDPs offered by the universities.
