The Open University of Israel is 1 of 9 universities recognized by the Israel Council for Higher Education (CHE).
In the 2018 academic year the OUI, together with The Technion - Israel Institute of Technology, have begun a prestigious academic partnership for undergraduate studies in Computer Science within The Ingeborg and Ira Leon Rennert Haredi Empowerment Program.
The OUI is the only Israeli university offering a package for an accredited degree which combines academic excellence and state-of-the-art technologies.
Over 600 courses are currently offered to OUI students, on prestigious and diverse degree tracks.
Over 46,000 students are currently enrolled, making the OUI the largest university in Israel.
The OUI is the only university where soldiers and officers on active duty are permitted by the IDF to pursue their academic aspirations while they serve.
OUI programs are complemented with online, live feed learning, recorded lectures, and additional internet tools and applications tailored to course websites.
The OUI package provides access to high level university education in face-to-face classrooms at close to 70 campuses and learning centers throughout Israel.
The OUI allows each student to set his or her own pace for completing a degree, an important feature for those working full time while pursuing their studies.
OUI workshops in computer applications, mathematics, study skills, and English for academic purposes are offered, if necessary, upon enrollment, and simultaneously with students' first academic courses.
The OUI is authorized by the Ministry of Education to offer gifted and excelling high school students academic credits.
The OUI publishing house produces more course textbooks than any other press in Israel. The books reflect collaboration among scholars from all Israeli universities, and are thus widely used.
Acceptance of OUI graduates to the world's finest universities for higher degrees attests to the quality of OUI education.
International committees convened by the Israel Council for Higher Education have rated OUI programs on a par with European and U.S. academic programs.
Israeli employers recognize the value of an OUI degree as an indication of academic achievement as well as fine-tuned time management skills.
