Prof. Moudi Al-Humoud, President of the Arab Open University (AOU), stressed on the several achievements of the AOU branches that clearly reflect their efforts in improving the cultural and scientific level of their students, and show their commitment to the high quality of the AOU academic programs.
Al-Humoud pointed out that the University is dedicated to the standards and rules of the AOU branch countries, and the conditions of their official accreditation bodies, in addition to the requirements of the program and institutional accreditation of the British accreditation institution, which is affiliated with the Open University in the UK.
This came in a press statement by Prof. Al-Humoud on the sidelines of honoring the team of the AOU Kuwait branch who won in Startup Kuwait Competition organized by Kuwait University under the patronage of National Assembly Speaker Marzouq Al-Ghanim. The competition witnessed a participation of more than 1300 students representing more than 180 teams from various universities. The winning project was Habbah by Mohammad Al-Alwan from the AOU Kuwait branch and was supervised by Mr. Abdl-Mahsen AlMutiri.
Al-Humoud also announced that the AOU Jordan branch took the first place in the universities proficiency exam in the specializations of Business Administration and Accounting at the micro-level, and got top results at the mid-level and at the general and cultural level in the specializations of Education, Special Education, Computing, and languages.
She expressed her pride of this honorable academic achievement and of the efforts of all the AOU branches that aim to develop the University and serve the strategic plans of development in the Arab world.
On behalf of the chairman and the members of the AOU Board of Trustees, Al-Humoud congratulated Prof. Naif Al-Mutiri, Director of the AOU Kuwait branch, and the winning team, and offered her congratulations to Prof. Mohammad Abu Qudis, Director of the AOU Jordan branch, and the students who participated in the exam.
The achievements are a central pillar of the University's efforts, which culminated in earning the institutional and programme reaccreditation by the Open University last May for a period of five years, Al-Humoud added. She also pointed out, “This will promote the reputation and the status of the University in addition to the certificates of its graduates at both the Arab and international levels.”
It is worth mentioning that the aim of the universities proficiency exam, which is organized by the Higher Education Accreditation Commission in Jordan with a participation of 33 public and private universities, is to measure the quality of outcomes of Jordanian universities and their programs.
