List of UAE Government approved online universities and why Al Arab University is a fake institute



Today morning when I opened my inbox, I got a query from one of my blog reader asking about Al Arab University. Before replying to him, I thought to find out more about the university. As I suspected, the university is indeed a fake university.

Here is the query and my response:
__________________________________________________________________________________
Query:

Please advise if Al arab university is fake? below is the reason why i am asking

I registered with Al Arab university last year , at first i was asked to pay USD 699 as registration fees and then USD 1899 for tuition and over the phone i was promised i wouldn't have to pay more but after a month i get a call and was asked to pay extra USD 1899 for equivalency and if i don't pay then il have problems later on. since i could not find anything against this university online , i paid.

i finished the course in aug 2013, i could have done it within a month since the ‘exam’ was just true or false questions. I was promised on many occasions and even on mail that i will get my attested degree in 30-45 days but i got it after 4 months . The degree is not attested but along with that there is a certificate from Cairo university for ‘ writing scientific research’ which i haven’t done and don’t see the point of having it.

I was naturally quite upset and complained , i got a call and told off the agent and wanted answers as to why was the university not transparent and did not mention any thing about the other certificate, in return he got personal and was rude /sarcastic.

In the past the same agent had promised on the mail that if im not satisfied with the degree they will refund the fees but now the same agent is telling me they wont give any refund and that he wont even ask anyone else to help me as im quite difficult to handle. Apart from all this he is denying a lot of other things done by them. He even said i can do whatever i want i wont get my refund and that the university’s image is pristine.

The only reason i am writing to you is so that people should think 10 times before enrolling with them. I probably wont get my refund but at least people would know about this university.

Thanks

Regards,
Mav |

Arab Open University is a non-profit, private Pan Arab university founded in 2002. The university occupies several campuses located across the Middle East, including in Kuwait, Jordan, and Lebanon. 
Arab open University has partnered with The Open University of UK which is highly reputed and recognized.
The Arab Open University (AOU), a distance learning institution with operations in Bahrain, Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, and Saudi Arabia, recently received accreditation for all its branches from the British Accreditation Council (BAC), a private UK-based postsecondary education accreditation organisation. The announcement comes in the wake of AOU’s decision to formally utilise materials from the UK’s Open University, building on a longstanding relationship.

As of now, UAE Government has not recognized any other institutes to offer distance and online learning including those from India. Yes, degree obtained in India may stand valid. 

For further details, list of the institutes, please visit



I hope I have clarified and this blogpost is useful for you. I have advised multiple times not to opt KSOU, Mahatma Gandhi University, Shillong, EIILM, CV Raman, Jaipur National, Jodhpur National, Vinayaka Mission, Swami Vivekananda University and such other 40+ degree scamster, but real universities. 

People in the middle east, Arab countries should not take admission in any Indian universities operating on those countries except IGNOU. Government of India has not allowed any other universities to offer courses in distance, online or any mode outside India.

    Secondly when I inquired with IICT Lucknow they said the diploma programmes are not recognised by any of the agencies its been created keeping in mind corporate's and widely accepted by corporates but in case if any student want to pursue MBA they can take lateral entry from 2nd year onwards and the degree is from Jayoti Vidyapeeth Women's University. which is recognised by UGC, AICTE & DEC.

    Request your advice since I am in 3rd sem of scdl and now way can skip it between after paying the entire money after all when government is not bothered keeping blind eye on these institutions they are playing with student career as lakhs n lakhs of student get entrolled in these type of universites/institutions without proper knowledge

    1. Amity is a government supported scam institute like IIPM. Its owner were under INTERPOL red corner notice for financial fraud. Being a private university, it cannot offer any course outside Noida. Its degrees are not acceptable everywhere. Corporate does not accept any such qualification as claimed by IICT. There are companies who select candidates only from their specific institute and there are companies who do not have a well established HR department and wrongly assume these qualificaitons are good and later repent.
      Jayoti can offer courses only to women and Council of Architecture had withdrawn approval earlier due to lack of infrastructure.
      SCDL is just a diploma and they have clearly accepted it is not a post graduate degree programme. You should file a case against them

    I applied for equivalency of my Bsc. in H&HA from IGNOU (IHM & NCHMCT course). MOHESR has not equalised the same. Any Idea about this ? Is an IGNOU degree not acceptable ? I see that IGNOU is not listed in the universities section on MOHESR website.

I had got selected and prior to the interviews I did had submitted my distance education marks cards (Kalinga University) to the HR. However now I have asked by the company HR(Riyadh) to get the attestation done. Wanted to know if this university's distance education certificates are valid in Riyadh. Also wish to know with these certificates can I do a post graduation course offered by Saudi Arabia thru distance/ online course.
    Also in your response section , data wrt "It recommends 179 universities from India from 800+" is missing. Could you help us with the list of distance education universities that are approved by Saudi govt.

    Thanks in Advance

  60. Hi,

    I am about to submit my MSc IT degree (attested by MOFA - UAE and Mumbai, etc) I done with SMU through Distant Education from Wisdom Institute in the UAE (2013). Is the degree fake? It did get attested and I had called SMU to check and as per them it's valid and they pointed to the court verdict.

    Or it's just that UAE doesn't recognize SMU as a valid distant education? What should I do? Continue submit or stick to submitting my bachelors?

    If I submit SMU certificate, will it come as unrecognized or "fraud"?
