The International Open University (IOU) offers Audit Courses as part of its Open Education Program (OEP), which are courses designed for those who primarily want to acquire the knowledge provided in the programs and do not wish to take exams or submit assignments, though they can still do so.
Key Highlights of the Audit Courses
- Audit Courses are not accredited and a Certificate of Attendance will be awarded to the student upon completion of the course
- The duration and fee of the semester are the same as for an undergraduate or a graduate degree.
- The record of the attended courses will be kept in the database and a student can shift to an undergraduate/graduate degree program by applying for the stream change process (if they meet the criteria).
For administrative purposes, Audit Course students are only required to upload their scanned photo ID (e.g. passport, national ID) and a passport-size photo for admission.
