1.

The pattern of education in Open University and Distance Eduaction is same.
The open university has no affiliated colleges under its control where as
the UGC recognised university has affiliated colleges under its control.

A deemed University is one which proclaims itself as a University under UGC rules. Generally, the colleges which have PG, Engineering, and other professional courses, proclaim themselves as Deemed Universities. These are also equally good in standards. They will not have any affiliated colleges under their control. They give their own degrees. All courses in these deemed universities are regular on campus. however, some deemed universities are also having distance education programmes including research degrees.
