UoPeople is a U.S. accredited institution. Because of the fact that, in many places, being accredited in the U.S. means that we are a highly respected institution, UoPeople has not pursued accreditation in any other country. UoPeople cannot guarantee that its degrees or their credits will be accepted by other international academic institutions or employers, since this is determined by each institution individually.
However, UoPeople accreditation, academic partnerships with NYU, Edinburgh and Berkeley, together with the support of our academic partners and leadership – hailing from such universities as Yale University, University of Oxford, Columbia University, and more – we feel certain that UoPeople students will be able to go far with their degrees. It may help to know that many of our students and graduates have gone on to continue their education at universities around the world, including NYU, MIT, the University of Auckland (New Zealand), UC Berkeley (USA), the University of Nairobi (Kenya), Carnegie Mellon University (Australia), University of Newcastle (Australia), Sapienza University of Rome (Italy) and many more. UoPeople graduates have used the education they receive to progress in their careers through promotion and new employment opportunities.
Many of our students and graduates work at top international companies and organizations such as Google, IBM, Apple, Dell, Microsoft, Amazon and even the United Nations. You can see their LinkedIn profiles here. 90% of our graduates recommend UoPeople to their friends, and 87% are employed. That being said, international applicants are encouraged to check the status of UoPeople degrees in their own country.
