Course fees and Payment options
Enrolling in a Peoples-uni module/unit costs £50 each - after 8 modules you are eligible for a Diploma-level award and may be eligible to take the Dissertation (where the cost is £180 or £100 after semester 17b) - so the total cost of a Peoples-uni Diploma-level award is £320 and Masters-level award is £500. [Note: there are limited opportunities for students from High Income Countries to enrol - fees are higher (£400 per module and £800 for the Dissertation) in order to subsidise our infrastruture and keep the fees low for students from Low- or Middle-Income Countries.
Instructions about the payment method will be sent when your application to enrol is approved.

Please ensure that you notify the helpdesk after you have made payment using any of the options above excluding online payment.
If you are unable to pay, we may be able to waive the fees in some circumstances, although these will be limited and competitive - you will be asked to justify the reasons for a fee waiver at the time of application for enrolment.
We have kept the fees for the Peoples-uni modules to a level where we are just covering the computer costs we incur but if you really are unable to find this amount of money, and you intend to make use of the education in ways which support the aims of Peoples-uni we have limited funds available to cover costs in approved cases. If this applies to you please make sure that you provide all the information requested on the application form and your request will be considered.
Please make sure that you provide all the information requested carefully.
In considering any request for scholarship support we will be looking particularly at what you have done to try to get sponsorship from other sources and what you intend to do with the learning which supports the aims of Peoples-uni as well as the reasons why you are not able to pay the full fee and what proportion of it you could pay.
