University of the people, the method, how it works, examples of its validity

I arrived at the decision to write this article about the “method” University of the People uses, after receiving messages from everywhere, asking for such peculiarity. As a student who has almost finished her path, I know how this process works, by virtue of the fact I personally experienced that, during the past five years. As a consequence, I can show proof of its advantage as well as their application; simultaneously, I will inform you about some researches, including a confirmation of what I’ve been saying all along. Debbie Time, an American graduate of the University of the People, contributes to this article.

Point of departure: the method of University of the People is extremely different from traditional ones; consequence: people all around the world compare it with their own.

How are you doing? Of University of the People and Statistics

How are you doing?

With the complicity of global warming, the last Italian Summer turned out to be the hottest of the three on record in more than a decade; indeed, my imminent exam for the “Statistics course” raised my perception of temperatures. That is to say: “statistics are statistics” and this time, studying in a language other than my mother tongue caused me visions, something similar toseek out an oasis in the desert”. I speculate such “emotional” approach sprang after the intense routine I lived during the last five years, which is comparable to an enduring Marathon, where the city assumed the form of my home, runners became

other students all over the world, I wore out a keyboard instead of jogging shoes and the conclusive mile turned into Statistics. That sprint signified something specific to me: it symbolized a special revenge in front of life; particularly about women‘s rights, which also include getting a College Education. Continue reading

Ethics are recurring arguments at Uopeople, in the sense that courses encourage us to act in a fair manner, whatever we do. Additionally, the very recent economic downturn arose some important issues about the correct ways to run businesses; at least, we ought to discuss some of the previous approaches in front of trade. Thus, it is no longer possible to separate the environmental emergency from economics and as a consequence, some courses are fundamental in the aim of developing an environmental awareness.

The “Introduction to biology” course is wide and  Continue reading


It’s time to have a Mentor when..The University of the People Mentorship program

It’s time to have a Mentor when you notice some warning signs:

  • you mix your native language with English

  • little crumbs immerse your keyboard
  • you don’t remember the last time you ate at the kitchen table
  • you don’t mind all those strange people going back and forwards from home; oh yes, that’s my family!
  • There’s a little voice yapping away and saying: “why are you working so hard?”. However, you don’t know the answer.

The Principles of marketing course at Uopeople

I have been working for many years, before starting my studies at Uopeople. While studying, I was running my job and my family. Along the years I tackled many topics: college algebra, psychology, basic accounting or biology.. Knowledge allowed the comparison between past and present; most of all, I put the concepts into practice. Now, it’s like living two lives at once. The bottom-up method is a pillar in our education; we start from real cases, then we develop a solution. Our textbooks triggered our curiosity, particularly the one we used during the Principles of marketing course [Principles of Marketing, flatworld knowledge]. Its authors explained marketing and used examples we have close at hand: IPhone, Coca Cola, Ikea, Walmart, Swarowsky and many others. Definitely: marketing is  Continue reading
