For Non-Native English Speakers

Our online degree programs at UoPeople are accredited English degree programs– because of this, we require all non-native English speakers to provide us with proof of English proficiency. To see which documents we accept click here.


An applicant who does not meet these English Proficiency requirements may be considered for admission. If admitted, these applicants will be required to take a University-approved English course and an examination in order to demonstrate a proficient level of English. Upon successful completion of the course and examination, students may then continue to study in UoPeople.


Please note: English proficiency requirements may be different for undergraduate and graduate degree applicants.


By offering a degree in English, we are preparing our students for the international job market, as well as providing them with an essential tool for building their professional careers.
