    We've dealt with Nations, who provided free education overseas. As for U. of the People - much the same thing. As you say, they began unaccredited in 2009. During those early years they provided free education - no tuition, no fees. In 2012 they received a grant of close to $700K from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to pursue accreditation - and were accredited in 2014.

    If Nexford wants to teach for free until they get some Micro$oft money for accreditation - fine with me. Haven't seen such an offer, so far.

    Honestly, who gives a shit about generalisations like that?

    When it comes to UoPeople I have personally met a refugee from Greece who had literally nothing when he entered Europe and with the help of UNHCR staff he found UoPeople, applied and today has a BSc in BA without paying a single penny while he is currently enjoying a good paying job in Athens. That in my eyes shows that UoPeople is a decent University that actually helps people in need.

    We might agree on the value of UPeople but I also recognize that this board is full of opinions, many of them based on insufficient information.

    The team is very unprofessional. They take over 2months to respond to emails. In absence of a representative there is no one to take charge. They do not abide by commitments made to channel partners. I would rather recommend a student to take a full time course rather than spending so much on online courses which have not much value.
