How much does completing a program cost?

Taking courses that are part of a program is free.

But if you would like to receive a FutureLearn Award to prove what you’ve learned, or gain university-recognised credit (for those programs which offer this), you must upgrade your courses and qualify for a Certificate of Achievement for each course on the program.

For example, to earn the FutureLearn Award for the Social Entrepreneurship program, you would need to upgrade the three courses in this program and qualify for a Certificate on each course. Upon doing so, you would receive the program Award.
If the program also requires assessment, you must also purchase and complete the assessment to receive the program Award.
