Study Groups without Walls

At Peer 2 Peer University a study group gathers people who work together to learn a particular topic by completing tasks, assessing individual and group work, and providing constructive feedback.

The P2PU is a grassroots open education project that organizes learning outside of institutional walls and gives learners recognition for their achievements. P2PU  creates a model for lifelong learning alongside traditional formal higher education. Leveraging the internet and educational materials openly available online, P2PU enables high-quality, low-cost education opportunities. P2PU - learning for everyone, by everyone about almost anything.

  1. Sounds great!

    Completely agree that there is room for other learning approaches.

    Having squeezed through university just before the UK started charging students to study, I am happy not to have the debts spoken of here. I think the P2PU could be a great way to allow defavourised people to get good study opportunities.

    Good luck.
