Two courses from IGNOU simultaneously?
Can I do two courses from IGNOU simultaneously?
Can a Person do two courses from IGNOU simultaneously ?
Yes you can !
However there are certain preconditions
ONE DEGREE/DIPLOMA PLUS CERTIFICATE PROGRAM
Only the combination of One degree or a diploma (programme of one year or longer duration) coupled with a 6 months Certificate course is allowed.
The IGNOU Website says - Students who are already enrolled in a programme of one year or longer duration can also simultaneously register themselves for any Certificate programme of 6 months duration. However, if there is any clash of dates of counselling or examination schedule between the two programmes taken, IGNOU will not be in a position to make adjustment and is not liable for it.
Food for thought - How can you be sure that the examination dates for your 2 selected courses do not conflict.

TWO DEGREE /DIPLOMA AT THE SAME TIME - NOT ALLOWED
Two degrees or diplomas cannot be pursued simultaneously. The IGNOU University Website says - Simultaneously pursuing two academic Progammes either from the same University, or one from the Open University (under ODL mode) and the other from Conventional University (regular or face-to-face mode) is not permitted, as of now, except Certificate Programmes of six month duration
UGC ALSO DOES NOT ALLOW IT
UGC also does not permit Universities to allow students to pursue dual degree or masters at the same time. Even if you do by registering one degree in ignou and one in another distant or regular university , it won't be valid as UGC does not endorse that.. See UGC Clarification here :
