Partner Institutions

The Open Christian University has entered into validation agreements with different government-recognized universities in different parts of the world. Under the terms of the agreements, they agreed to accept credits and degrees from each other for the purpose of further study or the award of a reciprocal degree. Additional fees are payable by the student or incorporated into the tuition fee upon admission, for the reciprocal or the second degree award. While the majority of University programs are eligible for this scheme, some (especially certificates, diplomas, and associate's degrees) are excluded, so students should seek advice from the admissions team before proceeding to apply for joint, dual or reciprocal degrees. A list of our academic collaborators is displayed below and will be gradually updated.
