The idea of distance education was conceived by the Department of ICT and Distance Learning Centre, Al-Hikmah University Later, the National Universities Commission also gave its approval on the condition that it would be a self-financing programme. Hence, the present-day Distance Learning programme started first as External Degrees and later changed to External Studies programme of the Department of ICT and Distance Learning in 2019, with courses from the Computer Science department and two other departments, Guidance and Counseling and Educational Management. The Distance Learning Centre’s programme of studies is the same as that offered for full-time students of the Al-Hikmah University. The only difference is that it is designed primarily to suit those in the working class, whose schedules, distance, financial condition and other situations may not permit them to undergo full-time studies at the university..
