Featured images

We are proud to announce a new partnership with University of California, Berkeley, in which, UoPeople’s top-performing, qualified Associate’s degree graduates will be considered for transfer admission to Berkeley’s Bachelor's degree programs. This collaboration, along with our other high profile partnership with NYU, that enables top-performing UoPeople students to transfer to NYU with a generous scholarship, reinforces the high level of our degrees, and is an excellent opportunity for our students to continue on to complete their bachelor degrees at two of the top universities worldwide.

Shortly following the launch of UoPeople’s MBA degree, we are thrilled to have launched our newest program offering Associate’s and Bachelor’s degrees in Health Science. Leading figures are heading the program’s taskforce.

With our new partnership and two new degree programs, it is not surprising that UoPeople has received notable international media coverage as of late. Please find below some examples.

I hope you will enjoy reading the following. Thanks for all your support.

UoPeople Academic Partnerships

UoPeople is delighted to have entered into a new partnership with University of California, Berkeley.

“UC Berkeley welcomes the partnership with University of the People in considering highly qualified, top-performing UoPeople Associate’s degree graduates for transfer admission to complete a Bachelor’s degree at UC Berkeley. As a fellow Californian university, UoPeople’s mission is closely aligned with the mission of Berkeley, to open the gates to a quality higher education to every deserving student – with priority given to residents of California.” said UC Berkeley Chancellor Nicholas Dirks.

In 2011, UoPeople formed its first academic partnership with New York University (NYU), to allow high performing students who have completed at least one year of studies at UoPeople, and who meet the standards of admission, to be eligible to apply for admission to NYU, with a generous scholarship.

UoPeople is also partnered with Yale Law School's Information Society Project (ISP) for research.

We are thrilled to have these academic collaborations as this kind of recognition is the ultimate endorsement of the value of UoPeople degrees and opens new doors of opportunity for our students.

NEW - Tuition-Free Health Science Degree Launched

University of the People is very proud to have launched new Associate’s and Bachelor’s degrees in Health Science. Leading figures are heading the program’s Taskforce: Nobel Laureate and President Emeritus of The Rockefeller University, Dr. Torsten N. Wiesel; Chairman and CEO of Fortune 500® company Henry Schein, Stanley M. Bergman; Princeton University Professor Dr. Dalton Conley; and Columbia University Professor Dr. Darcy Brisbane Kelley.

The new Health Science program will offer courses providing a broad understanding of community and public health theories and models and their application to real-world situations. UoPeople’s Health Science program will prepare health workers for the workforce as well as prepare students for advanced studies within the medical field. This Health Science degree is one more step in accomplishing the university’s mission of addressing global needs as well as opening the gates to higher education for qualified students around the world and helping them overcome the financial, geographic, political, and personal constraints which preclude millions from accessing higher education.

Dr. Torsten N. Wiesel, who also sits on UoPeople’s President’s Council, said, “The contributions of Health Science toward the safety and wellbeing of people cannot be underestimated, and the objective of the UoPeople Health Science program is to make high quality health care education accessible at a cost affordable to students all over the world. Creating a safe and high-quality health care environment begins with quality education.”

The university is currently accepting applicants to commence their studies in September 2016. See full press release here.
