We offer the opportunity to study world-class validated degree programmes across Kuwait, Jordan, Lebanon, Egypt, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Oman and Sudan.
Our licensed courses have been adapted to meet local needs and to enable the Arab Open University (AOU) to develop and deliver undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes at scale through supported blended learning.
We have approved the AOU and validated its programmes, meaning it can now provide Open University and local awards across all eight countries in the Middle East.
We continue to provide consultancy support for the implementation of that content and for student support services.
More than 25,000 students have signed up to The Open University validated programmes, significantly enhancing access to higher education across the Middle East.
The partnership has achieved its aim of reaching women. A significant total of 50% of students are women in Saudi Arabia.
The alliance that AOU has with The Open University makes the AOU an attractive academic institution because we know that our University has partnered with the strongest and most competitive higher education institution for open learning.Dalia Hamed Mohammed Alrefai
