I love this university because of the flexibility that allows me to work and continue my education without any conflicts. The university is very understanding toward personal issues, provides scholarships for those in need. The professors are helpful and want you to succeed. However I wish there were more access to tutors and not just peers and teachers. This is very much a self-learning peer supporting university which has its pros and cons. It is good so far and I am happy to say I go to this university!

I consider university of the people as the best online learning institution that is fully dedicated to upholding educational values, ensuring the academic, professional and personal growth of the student, and as such she is a very important choice in my quest to further my education and become an accomplished Business lecturer.
Overall, I like this university. It really does help you learn a lot. The peer-to-peer system is really enforced. It doesn't cost me much thanks to a for-need scholarship I applied for. I only pay $20 every 3 months or so for my final course exam. You do have to be willing to work hard and study on your own.
