The Open University is a world leader in modern blended learning and the pioneer of teaching and learning methods, which enable people to achieve their career and life goals through studying at times and in places convenient to them.

The OU works with other organizations in many ways, by providing courses, collaborating on new curriculum, validating programmes and sharing their expertise to help other blended learning ventures become a reality. AOU is a Partner Institution of the OU, delivering OU Validated Awards.

The OU validates undergraduate and postgraduate qualifications which are offered by the Faculties of Business Studies, Computer Studies and the Faculty Language Studies. For those qualifications which are validated by the OU, successful students will receive a degree awarded by both the AOU-Sudan and The Open University (OU-UK).
