I welcome each one of you to Arab Open University Kuwait Branch. It is my complete pleasure to be heading an institution that has carved a prominent niche for itself amongst our graduate and prospective students, staff and the large employment market. It began as a groundbreaking project idea under the leadership of HRH Prince Talal Bin Abdulaziz with the establishment of six branches and eventually expanding to seven and AOU Kuwait branch is one of the largest of the seven branches. Kuwait Branch today has a sprawling university campus equipped with the state of art technology, highly qualified staff and a robust student population of eight thousand. We are proud to be offering our programmes in English Language Studies, Information Technology and Computing and Business Studies in partnership with the Open University UK. AOU Kuwait through its blended learning approach is in the pursuit of helping many students to achieve their dreams of accomplishing an academic degree despite their status of being employed or engaged differently. The credibility of our institution which is the only one in Kuwait offering an accredited dual degree from OU-UK and the local Ministry of Higher Education has been revalidated again for the third time for the years 2012 - 2017. AOU - Kuwait Branch is endeavoring to introduce post-graduate courses in the near future.
We at Kuwait Branch believe in encouraging every student who has the potential or desire to learn, and in doing so we are here to help you with the best of education and teaching and learning environment. We shall continue to strive to enhance our academic programs and to expand opportunities for you.
Dr. Naif Al Mutairi
