Mission Statement

The Open University of Israel stands for equality, diversity, social inclusion, and excellence. OUI is the only university in Israel that makes university higher education accessible, without prerequisite admission requirements, for truly everyone. It allows students from any background from all over the country to fulfill their dream to study towards a high level academic degree. For over 40 years OUI has served as a leading force for social inclusion and academic empowerment by closing social gaps and reaching out to the geographic and socioeconomic periphery, while maintaining excellence in academia.
