To increase the amount of highly skilled teachers across the world, the University of the People (UoPeople) and the IB have launched a tuition-free, online Master of Education program.

There is no charge for teaching or instruction. To help support the university’s continued operation, UoPeople charges a $60 application fee, and an Assessment Fee per course completed ($200 in the M.Ed.). That’s it. There are no annual enrollment fees, and no cost for course material. That would add up to $2,660 for the 13 minimum courses required for the M.Ed. program. 


"Founded by Harvard University and MIT in 2012, edX is an online learning destination and MOOC provider, offering high-quality courses from the world’s best universities and institutions to learners everywhere."

Coursera provides universal access to the world’s best education, partnering with top universities and organizations to offer courses online.


El colegio tiene un convenio con el Instituto Tecnológico de Monterrey para que sus empleados puedan beneficiarse con descuentos en programas de posgrado.
