Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) was established in 1985 by an Act of Parliament with a mandate to launch distance education programmes and to promote the open learning system worldwide. The University is a pioneer of distance education and is the largest Open University in the world. It offers affordable programmes through 21 Schools of Studies to over 3 million students.

The International Division promotes the academic programmes of the University outside India through collaboration and partnership with government agencies, open universities and international organizations. The Division also provides pedagogical and technological support to Overseas Study Centres in the delivery of programmes

In order to provide effective student support, IGNOU has established partnerships with educational institutions outside India which function as Overseas Study Centres with designated coordinators. The Centre for Open and Distance Education (CODE) which is a not-for-profit organization, is the IGNOU Overseas Study Centre in Kenya. CODE has established a strategic alliance with the College of Human Resource Management (CHRM),  a not-for-profit institution to promote IGNOU programmes.

A Study Centre has the following major functions:

Registration to different programmes is undertaken at the Overseas Study Centres subject to the conditions that the candidates fulfil the eligibility requirements prescribed by the University. The prospectuses for various programmes are available from the Centre and in the University website.
