Enrolling in a Peoples-uni module/unit costs £30 each - after 6 modules/units you are eligible for a Diploma and may be eligible to take the Dissertation for the Masters degree (which is equivalent to 3 modules/units) so the total cost of a Peoples-uni Diploma is £180 and Masters is £270.
The cost of enrolling in the Manchester Metropolitan University Master of Public Health (MMU MPH) programme is £1500 (this is for a 2-year enrollment - if you take longer than 2 years, you may be asked to pay an extra £60 per year). You may be able to pay in instalments over a 2-year period. Please note that there are special requirements for enrolment in the MMU MPH programme http://www.peoples-uni.org/node/232.
Instructions about the payment method will be sent when your application to enrol is approved.
There are three main methods of payment :
- For those who have a credit card, payment can be made online through WorldPay.
- For those with a bank account, you can transfer money to Barclays Bank in the UK or to Ecobank account in Nigeria.
- You can send money directly through MoneyGram which is available in most countries.
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.
MMU - MPH students - you are not able to enrol for the MMU MPH programme until you have successfully completed at least 2 (maximum 4) modules as a Peoples-uni student (see above). If you are ready to enrol as an MMU MPH student the fee is £1500 for the full course. We have kept the fees to a minimum and expect that students will either fund themselves or obtain sponsorship.
- If you are in a position to pay the full cost, and are accepted academically then you will be able to start in the coming semester.
- If you are unable to fund yourself or obtain sponsorship for all or part of the cost we have very limited funds available to provide scholarship support to a small number of students who meet specific criteria. The application form has a section for you to request scholarship support. You will still need to apply for academic acceptance in the semester after you have passed two modules with Peoples-uni, but you will not be able to start the course until the following semester whilst we consider your request. (We can only consider requests from students who meet the academic requirements). We will try to ensure that you have a final answer on the question of scholarship support 2 months before the start of the next semester.
