Free courses

We run free online courses in partnership with FutureLearn. These are sometimes referred to as 'MOOCs', or massive open online courses. You can register online to join any of the courses listed below - you just need access to a computer, tablet or mobile phone to learn with us.

Our courses are run at regular intervals, and we are developing new courses, so if you don't find what you want, please keep an eye on this page.
