Faculty of Open Education

For those who are not able to attend their studies full time, USTY offers distance learning as an alternative through the Faculty of Open Education. This opportunity has been available for more than 20 years and has contributed greatly to the expansion of knowledge and the development of human resources not only in Yemen, but beyond Yemen. As evident from perusing the centers we have overseas and within Yemen, USTY has contributed much to producing graduates who are now holding responsible positions in government and industry, in Yemen and other parts of the world.

Today, the faculty is a vibrant community with twenty one programs.  It is one of the best providers of open education in the region. The faculty has been recently awarded " Innovation and Excellence Award " in open and distance learning from the Arab Network for Open and Distance Education in Amman, Jordan, 2011. The faculty is also a member of International Council for Open and Distance Learning (ICDE). It has 14 learning coordination spots in 10 countries worldwide.
