With everything affected by inflation, the hope to obtain good education is almost near impossible. Some sites offer ridiculously surreal opportunities that are too good to be true. The widespread scamming, particularly online, has put a lot of aspiring learners to be skeptical on things offered online. The idea of getting an online degree free of the usual tuition fees and their sudden unprecedented increase would sound quite absurd to those less techies.
To the less doubtful, there is too little to lose when there is so much to gain in return. This computer-driven generation has the full advantage of the world stage right at their screens. The lax type of lifestyle the traditional schools imbedded in us has somehow slowed down the drive to venture beyond the confines of the four-walled classroom. Unbeknownst to everyone, the virtual world has so much to offer. Online degrees are now being handed down to those with very limited time to sit inside the classroom. Associate degrees, bachelor degrees, MBAs, and even health science online courses have become the trend on distance learning programs.
Universities, nowadays, have opened their eyes to the reality of the modern world. They finally have entertained and slowly addressed the presenting problem of the new generation-getting a degree and at working simultaneously.
University of the People is such an appropriate name for a university that offers free tuition fee all throughout their student career. As an accredited online American university, this institution’s aim is to provide higher education for ALL. Such mission would definitely benefit the computer-mobilized societies particularly that of the first world countries where prices are skyrocketing. Cost-cutting is the prime target since it’s the number one hindrance to education.
To promote continuous operation, “UoPeople charges a $60 application fee, and an Assessment Fee per course completed ($100 in the undergraduate programs, and $200 in the MBA)” that is the only catch. That is, an associate degree-usually 2 years- would only cost about $2000, a bachelor degree- 4-year course- about $4000, and an MBA of 15 months is only about $2500 and that’s it. The said fees aren’t as daunting as they looked since they are not paid upfront. Annual enrolment fees and class materials are absolutely free. The rest of the tuition fees are free.
For the very less fortunate ones, UoPeople even offers a series of scholarships namely: Simone Biles Legacy Scholarship Fund, Vietnamese Scholarship Fund, Botari Women’s Scholarship Fund, Emergency Refugee Assistance Scholarship Fund, Fondation Hoffmann Scholarship, Gabriel and Marci Hawawini Scholarship Fund, Gutwirth Fondation Scholarship Fund, Small Giants Scholarship Fund for Refugees, and UoPeople General Scholarship Fund. https://www.uopeople.edu/tuition-free/our-scholarships/
In response to this very generous offer, the above-mentioned scholarships are actually organized by the previous recipients of the free-tuition fee online education.
This drive to provide education for all has stepped up the calibre of distance learning degrees to a different level. This is also open to those applicants who don’t use English as their first language however they need to present a proof of proficiency in English in order to be qualified for assessment. Or, they need to pass the English module they offered so that their application will be considered. Annual deadline of application for this year is on the 4th of October, and the next term starts on November 15, 2018. https://www.uopeople.edu/
