DREAM IT. BELIEVE IT. ACHIEVE IT. WITH FREE TRAINING COURSES

I love all things free and that also means free training courses that you can do in the comfort of your own home!

 

I wanted to share with you a wonderful free way to study online and choose from hundreds of courses from top universities as well as specialist organisations.

 

FutureLearn is an online learning company set up by The Open University which offers totally free training courses that you can study at your own pace and during your own time.

 

There are many courses to choose from – the complete list can be found here – there is such a vast array of subjects and the courses are from six to ten weeks long but of course there are shorter courses too.

 

The free training courses are very interactive and contain various activities to keep you interested and motivated including videos, audio and articles to read.  There are also short quizzes you can take as you go along.

 

Some of the free training courses that have just started are:

 

  • Business Fundamentals:  Effective Communication from The Open University

 

  • Cancer in the 21st Century from University of Glasgow

 

  • Exercise Prescription for the Prevention and Treatment of Disease by Trinity College Dublin

 

  • Innovation: The Key to Business Success of University of Leeds

 

  • Spanish for Beginners by The Open University

Each task you complete the easy to navigate system allows you to tick it off from your “To Do List” so you can move on to the next task.

 

There are also discussion sessions where you can chat to others who are taking the course – this is a great interactive tool to allow you to compare notes!

 

There are assignments that you can complete and at the end of most courses you will be given the opportunity to purchase a Certificate of Achievement.  The price for this really does depend on the course but you really don’t have to purchase one – it is up to you.

 

Whether you are studying for pleasure or considering a career change, FutureLearn is an excellent tool for increasing your knowledge or a way to increase your confidence in learning again.

 

Whatever the reason it is an infectious resource that you can continue to use again and again – totally free!

 

Happy learning!

    I’ve been searching for free online courses in vain especially now that I’d want to learn Spanish. Thanks for this too much.

    I’ve just signed up to some courses on Udemy, I will have to take a look at these free ones. I think short courses like these are fab for keeping your brain alive and learning new skills x
