What is an open university?



Just in case you were wondering what an open university is, well, it is, very much like any university. The only difference is, such a university has an open-door academic policy. This simply means it does not set entry-requirements for one to get admitted. Anyone can literally apply and start courses from anywhere they are.

Classes are mostly done online and distance education is very much encouraged.

Importance of Open universities

1. Improve access to higher education

Open universities make it possible for more people to get a university education. This means that those who finished secondary school years ago but did not further can finally go back. Those who cannot attend conventional university because of grade entry requirements or time constraints can also do so easily and at their time and pace at open universities. So house husbands and wives, you too can get a university degree.

2. Cheaper

Attending an open university is also significantly cheaper than conventional universities which leaves many students and their parents in massive debt. Much of the course material can be found online and the time flexibility means you can work and get your degree at the same time.

3. Skilled workers

Open universities have overseen the education and re-education of workers to equip them skills necessary for industry and professional development.

Laweh Open University College is the first accredited Open University College in Ghana established in 2014 as an open supported learning institution offering certificates, diplomas, degrees and postgraduate courses.

Laweh is global partner with the Franklin University, USA, for the award of its degrees, diplomas and certificates.

The Laweh Open University conducts its operations through Regional Centres and Study Centres. Currently there are fifteen (15) contact points in African countries coordinated by prominent personalities.
