University of the People (UoPeople) is the world’s first tuition-free, online academic institution
An Israeli entrepreneur with decades of experience in international education plans to start the first global, tuition-free Internet university, a non-profit venture he has named the University of the People.
Founder and President Shai Reshef established University of the People to marry the opportunities between unprecedented access to the Internet, dropping technology costs, and rising tuitions worldwide. University of the People promises to democratize higher education by providing universal access to college studies even in the poorest parts of the world.
The open-source courseware is there, from universities that have put their courses online, available to the public, free,”

We know that online peer-to-peer teaching works. Putting it all together, we can make a free university for students all over the world, anyone who speaks English and has an Internet connection.”
The University of the People is a free degree university, like other Internet-based universities, would have online study communities, weekly discussion topics, homework assignments and exams. But in lieu of tuition, students would pay only nominal fees for enrollment ($15 to $50) and exams ($10 to $100), with students from poorer countries paying the lower fees and those from richer countries paying the higher ones.
