U2 Platform

How does the platform work

Universal University Projects
Our resources and projects provide an exceptional environment where students and staff are recognised for their achievement and encouraged to keep developing. Our global outlook and commitment to flexible learning and excellent teaching ensure our students receive full support in reaching their potential.
Management in Education
U-Platform is founded on the principles of careful monitoring and management of operations and resources that respond to the constant evolution and change of today’s world. We believe that education requires an advanced approach to management and technologies, project management, marketing and communications.
Academic Quality

Academic quality is a key priority across all Universal University projects. We consistently re-evaluate our programmes, introduce new technologies and educational formats and systems to ensure our students are integrated into the professional world from the very beginning of their learning experience.

This is ensured by the School’s Expert Centre for Academic Quality and Creative Teaching that accumulates the full range of educational expertise.

Lifelong Learning & Student-centric education
Our curricula are informed by research, social responsibility and the needs of students. An outstanding learning experience is based on internal and external partnerships, where students are exposed to theory and real-world problems in their learning. We strive to deliver the best possible quality of programmes and offer a variety of opportunities for self-development as part of our strategy to support lifelong learning.

We encourage staff development by recognising and rewarding those who strive to improve. Universal University is a learning environment where the only boundaries are the limits of a student's curiosity.

Students are taught by well-supported, enthusiastic and engaging tutors, top experts and leaders in their field. We employ the best specialists in their field, who share our philosophy and belief that knowledge is the key tool in making the world a better place.
