Are you a UCL student? Did you know you’re entitled to free FutureLearn access til the end of the year? Nope? Me neither.
I only found out about this lately, and recently posted about my experience studying Innovation Management via FutureLearn. I received several messages afterwards from UCL students asking about how I did this, so thought I’d make a summary blog post!
What is FutureLearn?
FL is an online learning platform with hundreds of online courses from top universities and specialist organisations.
How do UCL students get free access?
UCL students (and, I guess, alumni with working credentials) are eligible for a free upgrade to FutureLearn Campus.
To access this, you’ll need to sign in with your existing UCL credentials as per this guide.
What FutureLearn courses can I study for free?
This UCL access lets you access any course listed under FutureLearn Campus for free and its certificate of completion.
Here’s a list of eligible courses you could study.
Can I link my existing FutureLearn account?
Yes, you can link an existing FL account with your institutional login. You can do this by going to “Account” -> “Connected Accounts” and adding your UCL institutional login account.
Already started/finished FL courses, but now want the certificates etc that you are eligible for via FL Campus? If you leave the course and rejoin under the “FutureLearn Campus” access, you will be able to get a certificate of completion. This does not erase your previous progress.
