FutureLearn: Home


We are pleased to offer University of Southampton staff and students free access to a collection of short online courses through FutureLearn, until the beginning of January 2023.

There will be no cost for users to take courses or to earn certificates. You can enrol on courses any time and will have until the 1 January 2023 to complete them and gain a certificate.

FutureLearn courses are created by experts from leading universities and organisations. Every course is broken into steps, allowing learners to fit it easily around their schedule - learning can happen anytime, anywhere. Courses are also built around social learning pedagogy: the belief that we learn better together. Courses vary in length - most are six to ten weeks long but some are shorter two and three week courses.

To register for one (or multiple) courses, please follow this link, click 'Start Learning Now' and then login/register with your University of Southampton email address.
