About this university:

Al-Quds    Open    University    is    an    administratively, academically   and   financially   independent   public University.    In    1975,    the    urgent    need    of    the Palestinians   for   higher   education   in   accordance with    their    demographic,    social    and    economic situation   under   the   Israeli   occupation   generated the   idea   of   establishing   a   university   that   would meet     the     needs     of     the     local     community. Consequently,      upon      the      request      of      the Palestinian     Liberation     Organization,     UNESCO conducted   a   feasibility   study   in   1980   to   initiate the    project.    The    study    was    later    approved    by UNESCO    General    Conference    and    later    by    the Palestinian    National    Council    in    1981,    but    the execution   of   the   project   was   delayed   until   1985 due to the Israeli invasion of Lebanon. In   1985,   a   temporary   headquarter   in   Amman   was founded    with    the    approval    of    the    Jordanian Ministry   of   Foreign   Affairs.   From   1985   till   1991, the       efforts       were       focused       on       preparing comprehensive       study       plans       for       different academic      specializations,      faculties,      and      the production     of     educational     materials     such     as textbooks   and   teaching   aids   (mainly   audio   and visual ones). In       1991,       the       university       commenced       its educational       services,       establishing       a       new headquarter       in       Jerusalem,       and       gradually introducing   branches   in   major   Palestinian   cities. The    number    of    enrolled    students    began    with hundreds,     and     annually     increased     to     reach 56,000   students   by   the   end   of   the   first   semester of     the     Academic     Year     2016/2017.     The     first graduates     of     the     University     received     their certificates in 1997.
