The first university ranking “by students, for students” has ranked University of the People 10th in North America!
The survey, comprised of 100,000 students and including 1,500 educational institutions asked students to report on metrics including job opportunities, diversity, studying remotely, and course quality, amongst others. Other notable universities in the Top 10 include Duke University (5th) and Vanderbilt University (9th). To look at the survey results, click here.
CNN Arabic featured the launch of UoPeople in Arabic, the first non-profit, tuition-free, accredited, American, online university in Arabic. The video discussed UoPeople in Arabic’s establishment to provide higher education to the Arab world, especially refugees. Turmoil in the Arab world has left hundreds of thousands of qualified students with no recourse to pursue higher education. UoPeople in Arabic provides an accessible, affordable and quality degree for those impacted by ongoing wars, natural disasters, pandemics, and more.
