Open Arab University established
Cairo, 30th March 2001

   Prince Talal bin Abdul Aziz, the chairman of the Arab Gulf Fund for the United Nations Development Program (AGFUND), has said that the Open Arab University project will start its academic studies in 2002, with four major specializations in its first phase.

In an interview with the Egyptian magazine 'al-Ahram al-Saudi', to be published tomorrow, Prince Talal said that Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Sudan, Syria, Bahrain, Yemen, Lebanon and Jordan have submitted requests to open branches of the Open Arab University.

'However, the decision has been already taken to open branches of the university in Jordan, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon and Egypt,' he said.

Prince Talal said the estimated cost of the university’s first phase was nearly $32 million, adding that it will be funded by AGFUND.

'We have signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Sir John Daniel, the Rector of the British Open University and International Open University to enhance cooperation between the two universities,' Prince Talal added.
