Upskill by learning English with world-leading New Zealand universities and organisations
English is the language of global communication and work.
The English language is spoken at a good level by 1.5 billion people around the world. That’s one in every four! It’s also the language of computers, science, international business, tourism, and countless more worldwide industries. So, learning English doesn’t only open access to conversation with a quarter of the world’s population, it can also supercharge your career.
Of all the places to study English as a second language, New Zealand is undoubtedly a frontrunner. New Zealand consistently ranks as the top English-speaking country in the world when it comes to preparing students for the future, according to the latest Worldwide Educating for the Future Index, and all its universities place in the top 3% in the world. The country’s education system also stands out for its commitment to innovation, ensuring that the student experience of learning English – or any other subject – is creative, collaborative and constructive in contributing to your future career success.
That’s why FutureLearn is delighted to present this collection of expert-led online courses in collaboration with Education New Zealand, showcasing the nation’s pioneering English language educators and experts in many more academic fields.
