Futurelearn

Future Learn offers over 150 free online courses that fall within 13 categories, including technology, creative arts and engineering. You may be wanting to boost your credibility in a certain field, build transferable experience into your CV if you’re thinking about a career change, or just learn for the fun of it – whatever the situation, the courses are worth a look.

Course content is supplied by universities from around the world. There’s a structure to follow with the time investment clearly indicated under the details of each course, for example 2 hours per week for 2 weeks. Generally there isn’t ongoing enrolment so there’ll be a specific start date for each course, with a 14-day leeway to access the content after the course has concluded.

To access a certificate of completion after each course and to have unlimited access to the course content after the start date, you can pay to upgrade your membership.
