UoPeople’s Unique Learning Method

UoPeople’s groundbreaking learning method makes the University unique and successful. Our method equips students with a high-level, well-rounded, and hands-on learning experience. Here’s how:


Online Learning

UoPeople offers comprehensive online learning, which can be accessed via any internet connection from anywhere in the world. This platform provides students with instruction by some of the top university lecturers worldwide. Online learning enables students greater flexibility and convenience when it comes to studying and completing coursework, and encourages innovative, original thinking.


Collaborative and Peer to Peer learning

UoPeople’s pedagogical model is based on an online collaborative learning environment that promotes peer-to-peer learning and utilizes open-source technology along with open educational resources (OER).

American Accredited University

The University is accredited by the Distance Education Accrediting Commission (DEAC) and follows a traditional American university model, entirely online.


Top Academics and Professionals

University leadership includes esteemed academics from Columbia, Harvard, Stanford, Oxford, NYU, Georgetown University and more. More than 5,000 professionals have volunteered for the University, filling key UoPeople leadership positions including University President, Academic Deans, and Course Instructors.


Global Community

UoPeople students hail from over 200 countries and territories, inspiring interesting dialogue between peers, and offering students alternative perspectives to their own.


Personal Attention

Students learn in small online classes to make sure professors can focus on each student’s needs. Each UoPeople student is appointed a personal Program Advisor from the moment they begin their studies, who serves in that role until the student graduates. The Program Advisor offers the student personalized support, answers any questions the student may have, discusses course selection, and encourages the student throughout their studies.
