The initiative taken by AOU Board of Trustees, chaired by HRH Prince Talal Bin Abdulaziz, in adopting the new learning concept of “blended learning” reflects his HRH great interest in the advancement of Arab youth and Arab future generations. Blended learning is considered one of the advanced learning systems. AOU has been accredited with this system by British Open University since 2001. AOU, with headquarters in the State of Kuwait, established several branches and learning centers in seven Arab states; and Kuwait branch is considered one of the essential branches as it provides its learning services to nearly five thousands students.
