It is pertinent to ask the question what is the true purpose of University education that we
provide? Some may think it is to simply study and memorize certain books and gain the
knowledge to pass certain examinations. Some may think it is to get an impressive certificate
or a license to practice . However, a university education goes beyond that. It is more than
memorizing books and facts. It is more than a framed certificate on a wall that can be used to
impress future employers or clients. We all have identities away from our careers. If the
objective of a university education is more than gaining the knowledge necessary to pass tests
and get a degree, what is the true purpose of a university education?

At Open International University we believe that you already possess a large number of skills
and competencies gained in different pursuits , and the deeper studies you undertake with us
will now develop a habit of mind that will last through a lifetime. We strongly encourage our
students to appreciate that gaining knowledge is in a way beneficial in itself ,giving its own
reward and not to be focused only what you are planning to do one day in the future. You will
continue to amass knowledge and learning is a lifetime endeavor that never ends. We believe
you need time to reflect on what you learn because knowledge can be acquired but wisdom

Our education will also help you to honestly face complex issues bombarding mankind from
diverse quarters. You will develop a mind of your own and be a “ thinking” professional with a
contribution of your own on vital issues, yet maintain honesty and ethics upholding the rights
of others. We are helping develop value-centric professionals in life so that it would be for the
greater benefit of mankind.

We also believe that a true University should incorporate many diverse branches of knowledge
and it has been our endeavor to always provide you with much opportunity to develop yourself
in your own field of interest. From humble beginnings in the field of complementary medicines,
today we have diversified to many branches, also helping you look into the “unity in diversity”
which is the work of a real university.

We also believe that we should learn to operate with both head and heart to grapple with
issues facing us and a focus only on bookish excellence and head knowledge is doomed to
failure. The point of a university education is not academics. It is about the future of the whole
person. The education gained our university allows people to really think. It is about the
quality of the mind and what you do with what you have. Our education brings the mind into
form. The mind can be a very beautiful thing that our education can really help develop. The
lack of a beautiful mind is indeed a misfortune!!
