UNESCO estimates that by 2025 almost 100 million students will be looking for places in universities, seats which simply do not exist. The answer is to provide affordable, high quality online education that is accessible for all.


UoPeople offers four academic degrees, completely online and tuition-free. All qualified individuals, despite financial, social or geographic constraints are able to access higher education and gain the skills and knowledge they need to shape a better future for themselves and their communities.

Long-Term Impact

UoPeople is not only servicing all those currently constrained from attaining higher education, but also building a model for governments and universities worldwide to emulate in order to educate even greater numbers of individuals. A significant difference can be made through education and economic opportunity. First it's the improvement of an individual, then a better community, country, and ultimately, the world.
