To confirm your status as a University of Padova student or staff member you may be asked to sign in with your University of Padova account.


We provide undergraduate-level courses from the world’s leading universities. Our FutureLearn Campus courses are aimed at undergraduates and faculty staff, as well as people learning for fun.

You have until the end of your university’s use of Campus to join fully-upgraded courses for free.

Upgrading means you can do the course entirely in your own time, at a pace that suits you (and you’ll get a certificate at the end too).

Once the course begins, a link to your to-do list will appear in Your Courses. You can access this at any time – you don’t have to get started or finish right away.

You can find the number of hours per week for each course on its course description page. Once a course has started, you’ll be able to access the course material and study at any time that suits you. You don’t need to be online at the same time as the lead educator or other students. On a few courses, educators will schedule an activity which takes place at a specific time, but this content will generally remain online afterwards.

Anyone can join a course, but they would have to pay for their own upgrades if they have not been invited to FutureLearn Campus by a university or organisation.

Once you’ve all started learning, you can take advantage of our social learning features including following friends and bookmarking their comments.

You can read more about our approach to social learning and why it works here.
