ANSWER: Dear abc

kindly let me know the full form of CPP or COP so that I can guide you correctly.

From my understanding cop means centre of online programmes. If so then it pertains to correspondence courses being offered by bharatiar. Same facilities are offered by symbiosis under the scdl brand.

Dear ABC,

Let me clarify all your doubts.

In India, an University has the right to offer Master's/Bachelor's degree to its affiliated colleges. Bhartiar University (BU), in this case, has invited academic institutions as partner  institutions  to offer various UG  and  PG programmes under its flagship.
COP means that colleges associated with BU can use and provide the online course material under the supervision of BU.
CPP means that colleges associated with BU can use their facilites and do resource sharing.

As an example, Symbiosis Institute of Management Studies is a college associated under the flagship of Symbiosis International University.

BU offers both full time and correspondence courses. By looking at the investment done, I believe that your course is a full time course. Modus operandi is regular.
