Our courses are pitched at adult learners from around the globe who, like you, have diverse work, life and study experiences. One of the most important ways to optimise your learning is to connect, respond and engage in topic-related conversations with other participants.

Be mindful of others

Sometimes we will ask you to share personal opinions or experiences that may be sensitive or controversial in nature. In such situations, you should only share your thoughts if you’re comfortable doing so.

While we encourage robust debate, we also ask you to observe the FutureLearn Code of Conduct and be respectful of other participants and their individual points of view.

In engaging with other learners, keep in mind the 3Cs:
