Where does studying take place?

University of the People degrees and courses are 100% online. This means that, as long as you have an internet connection, you can access UoPeople’s comprehensive online learning programs!


Our cutting-edge online platform provides students with instruction by some of the top university lecturers in the world. Part of our mission is to help students overcome obstacles getting in the way of their studies. Our online environment allows for flexibility, so that no matter where you are, you can study.


University of the People offers high-quality degree programs, together with a unique learning experience that combines peer-based and collaborative learning with cutting-edge information technology and the Internet. Each student will be connected with a personal Program Advisor at the commencement of their studies, who will remain with them until graduation. The student’s personal Program Advisor acts as a support system throughout their studies. The UoPeople small online classroom setting (20-30 people) allows for a community of supportive collective peer thinkers and teachers. Professors focus on each student’s needs and provide full support, while creating a community for students to work cooperatively and assist one another.


In our online learning community, students share resources, exchange ideas and discuss weekly topics. Students are also graded on learning journals, quizzes and proctored final exams. All exams are administered through our online education platform, Moodle. You may review your exams and courses in your student account on Moodle. Moreover, you will have the opportunity to study according to your own personal schedule and our Course Instructors are always available to go over grades when needed.
