Hi, guyz… Are you currently seeking for a scholarship or something like that? Wanted to continue your study at University but haven’t fund for that? Seems continuing study at University for free is an impossible thing? Oh, No! Please throw away those worries out of your mind because now University of the People (UoPeople), the world’s first tuition-free, online academic institution has been launched.
University of the People (UoPeople) is temporarily offering us two programs :
- Business Administration
- Computer Science
Those two programs similar to academic studies towards four degrees; An Associate and BSc in Computer Science and an Associate and BA in Business Administration.
The most attractive things of this University opened by PBB through UNESCO is, for the first generation will never be charged for anything. But the next one, will be charged S10 to $100 (depend of student’s country residence) for the application and exam processing fee (yet the tuition is still free, don’t worry. :)). This University use e-learning method where we can attend and participate for the class from anywhere as computer and Internet connection exists.
If you interested of being a student of UoPeople, come on! Let’s apply for it. The application process is made of two steps :
- Take place on online admission which takes approximately 30 minutes
- Consists of sending all of the requested documents to UoPeople Office of Admissions by mail
FYI, University of the People is presently neither accredited nor has its academic program been reviewed by any recognized quality assurance organization, therefore the course you’re completed will not be accepted on transfer to any other institution.
Oh, I think that’s okay. At least we’ve earn the skills and acknowledge. Accredited or not , in my perspective will not be a matter as we’ve mastering it.😉
So, what are you waiting for. Visit UoPeople.org and apply for it!
Deadline : June 30, 2009
Good luck for all of us!
