Virginia Tech takes a hands-on, engaging approach to education, preparing scholars to be leaders in their fields and communities.
As the commonwealth’s most comprehensive university and its leading research institution, Virginia Tech offers 275 undergraduate and graduate degree programs to more than 33,000 students and manages a research portfolio of more than $502 million. The Effat English Academy collaborates with the Virginia Tech Language and Culture Institute, whose mission is to promote intercultural competence and understanding by connecting people across borders and disciplines. They aim to inspire globally minded students, scholars, and professionals through transformative learning, innovative collaborations, and cross-cultural engagement.
The mission of University of the People is to offer affordable, quality, fully online, degree-granting educational programs to any qualified student. UoPeople believes that education plays a fundamental role in strengthening respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms, and in promoting understanding and tolerance.
Our partnership offers students from both institutions the chance to pursue a variety of fields at the undergraduate level, as well as at the graduate level.
Students will be able to transfer between the two universities in compatible programs.
