Al-Quds Open University (QOU) in Palestine has the honor to contact you concerning the call of proposal announced by Erasmus + 2019-2020. The Erasmus + National Office in Palestine has advised us to approach you, as we are looking for circulating our desire to take part in one or more applications as a partner.

QOU is a Palestinian university that provides educational services to over 56,000 students distributed in 18 branches in the major Palestinian cities. It is the only academic institution in Palestine that has been intensively implementing all types of E-learning in its teaching and learning practices. We also adopt the open learning approach in our educational policy and the blended learning approach that combines traditional classrooms and virtual classes.

QOU has over 30 cooperation agreements with international educational institutions and several partnerships with local institutions and organizations. We have an equivalent experience profile in managing great projects. We actively took part, as a partner, in different projects funded by Erasmus+ such as "Capacity Building Project for administrative and economic research centers in Palestine". In recent years, we, as applicant, won two projects funded by Erasmus + Program entitled "Teaching English as a Foreign Language at Palestinian Higher Education Institutions” and “Boosting Innovations and Education and Research of Precision Agriculture in Palestine /BENEFIT”. Besides Erasmus projects, QOU is implementing other projects as an applicant or a partner. For further information about QOU’s projects, please visit the following link:
