NextGenU.org is your portal to the world’s first free, accredited, higher education

Starting with a focus in the health sciences, NextGenU.org partners with leading universities, professional societies, and government organizations like the U.S. CDC, Grand Challenges Canada, and the World Health Organization. NextGenU.org’s accredited university partners give learners credit for this training (or institutions can adopt them and use them with their students), all for the first time ever for free (and without advertisements). All our courses are competency-based, and include a global peer community of practice, and local skills-oriented mentorships. Founded in 2001, we launched our first full course (Emergency Medicine) in March 2012, and have students registered in over 100 countries: initial data show that NextGenU’s training performs comparably to traditional American medical schooling. Please come learn more about us or have a look at our available courses.
