    Back in April 2020, online learning platform FutureLearn partnered with the Australian Trade and Investment Commission (Austrade) to launch a pilot campaign known as ‘Study with Australia'. The initiative aimed to provide free online access to a wide range of courses from leading Australian education institutions and designed to expand skillsets and further careers.

    Today the campaign has achieved over 836,000 enrolments from more than 460,000 learners across a collection of 52 free online courses from 20 major Australian higher education and English language training providers.

    Rebecca Hall, Global Education Lead at Austrade, said this initiative is a great example of how our world-renowned higher education sector has adapted during extraordinary circumstances to provide high-quality educational resources to students around the world.

    Justin Cooke, Chief Content and Partnerships Officer at FutureLearn said: “We are delighted to see that the Study with Australia campaign has taken off globally, enabling hundreds of thousands of learners to experience the best of Australian higher education completely free of charge.

    The five most popular courses were: Improve your IELTS Speaking score from Macquarie University; Data Analytics for Decision Making: An Introduction to Using Excel from Bond University; Introduction to Psychology: The Psychology of Learning from Monash University; Big Data Analytics: Opportunities, Challenges and the Future from Griffith University; and Professional Resilience: Building Skills to Thrive at Work from Deakin University.
