MOOCs - free short courses

If you’re looking to upskill or explore a new area without the commitment of a full degree, one of our free taster courses may be for you. 

Our Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), delivered through , let you experience studying online to develop a personal interest, build on existing skills, or as a stepping stone to new career opportunities. 

Some of these courses are also designed to prepare you for the flexible online degrees that we offer. You'll be introduced to the types of themes that appear in courses such as the BSc Computer Science and Global MBA. 

I recommend the Ƶ and the Coursera platform. It’s the best way and a safe and secure platform to learn in this modern world. There’s so much information out there, you don’t know which is real and which you can rely on, but so far Coursera has been the best learning platform I’ve come across.
