Whether you want to upskill and boost your career or learn new knowledge on different topics, take a look at the wide range of sponsored courses we offer. You can enrol today and earn a free certificate to show your friends or your future employers.
FutureLearn works with leading universities and organizations around the world to offer our learners relevant, high quality courses across a huge range of topics. In most cases, you can upgrade in order to get a certification and ongoing access to the course materials so that you can refer back to it again and again. However, in some instances we work with partners to sponsor courses, so that all learners can earn a free certificate and access for as long as it’s on FutureLearn. Learners still need to sit any tests in order to receive their certificate, but will not need to pay an additional charge.
That means that you can show friends, family, colleagues, and potential employers that you’ve completed the course and you’re ready to put your new skills to the test. Take a look at the options below to enrol in a sponsored course today and upskill, ready for your next challenge
