How to make a Statement

FutureLearn Product Manager, Simon Pearson, goes to inspect our Statements of Participation hot off the press.

For most of our free online courses, you can now buy a Statement of Participation, if you complete the majority of steps, including tests.

We’ve been printing these eye-catching certificates for a few months now, and we thought it’d be fun to show you what happens as they’re being made.

I popped down to our printing facility and got a tour of the printing machines where the magic happens, and made this short video.

We’ve been delighted with the response we’ve received to our Statements, as we’ve sent them out to FutureLearners around the world. And we especially love to see you posing with them – here are a few of our favourites!

If you want your very own Statement, look out for courses with ‘Certificates’ and an icon listed next to them. You can find out more about buying one for a course you’ve already completed in our FAQ.
