UK MOOC platform FutureLearn and The British Council have partnered for a fourth time to give free access to online courses from UK higher education institutions to people in non-OECD countries. The initiative, part of the Study UK program, gives people in eligible countries access to 325 massive open online courses (MOOCs) from 35 UK universities, plus the chance to earn one of up to 50,000 free digital upgrades. The ‘Study UK: Learn online with a UK university’ campaign on FutureLearn aims to showcase the diversity of the UK’s higher education offering and covers courses about robotics, science, sustainability, human anatomy, public money, video game design, and many others. Eligible learners in the 143 non-OECD countries can take advantage of a free upgrade until Friday 31 January 2020. This will enable them to access the course for an extended period, take tests and assessments (if applicable) at no additional charge, and earn a digital certificate subject to completing at least five steps on the course. The ‘Study UK: Learn online with a UK university’ campaign first launched in 2017 and has enabled more than 300,000 learners from 130 countries to gain free certificates from FutureLearn’s UK university partners as evidence of their academic achievement. “We’re delighted to be running this campaign once again and to provide global learners with the opportunity to experience the diversity of higher education courses in the UK. Gathering such a multitude of courses on FutureLearn’s platform and placing them at the fingertips of learners in all parts of the world demonstrates the breadth and openness of the UK higher education system. I strongly encourage all learners to take full advantage of this great opportunity and to see what the UK has to offer.”, said Fiona Samson, Director of the Study UK campaign. “We were delighted with the success of the previous runs of the campaign and are thrilled to be collaborating with the British Council on the 2019/20 phase. Study UK highlights exactly what FutureLearn is about: helping everyone fulfil their potential in a changing world by transforming access to education. The quality of education in the UK is renowned worldwide, so to be able to support the British Council in offering free digital certificates to learners overseas is something we’re very proud to be a part of.”, added Simon Nelson, Chief Executive at FutureLearn.
