Tuition tailored to your local market

The total cost of a Nexford University (NXU) education mirrors each learner’s specific situation. We adjust fees to local economic factors, meaning a low flat-fee for a quality program.

Payment for skills, not for the campus

Learners pay monthly for a 100% online experience. The faster they master competencies, the less they pay – and the sooner they graduate with a degree.

We don’t slow learners down

Individuals work through their chosen program at their own pace – fast or slow. The faster they finish, the more money they save.

FAQ

NexFirst learners can expect high-touch support. As a pilot program, we’ll ask them to provide real-time program feedback and we’ll offer them advice and help at every stage.

In the unlikely event of a learner choosing to press pause on their studies, your sponsorship funds will go back into your account. Then, you'll be able to transfer tuition to new learners.

You can sponsor as many learners as you like. Sponsoring a NexFirst learner is a short-term commitment with a long-term impact; the more learners you sponsor, the more significant the impact.

We welcome global and local sponsors, so you can support NXU learners no matter where you’re based. We’re prioritizing learners from Egypt, Nigeria, the US and the Philippines in the first instance. Want to sponsor learners based elsewhere? Get in touch.

If you have questions, we'd love to hear from you. Drop us an email at help@nexford.org and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.
