Imagine meeting the entry requirements for study at Harvard, and completing a course with that same world-leading educational institute for free. The exciting news is you now can!
Today anyone can study a course online from anywhere in the world with a new and revolutionary way to learn known as Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs).
1000’s of free online courses
MOOCs are freely accessible and open-licensed short courses, delivered for free online. There are literally thousands of MOOCS available for you to start right now, from 100’s of colleges and universities worldwide including Stanford, Cambridge, Oxford and Australia’s RMIT.
And you can study in almost any subject area, from astrophysics though to database languages and philosophy.
Complete a MOOCs course to find out if study is for you
While initially a marketing tool to showcase expertise and get students participating in study, MOOCs have become a great way for people to plug a hole in their resume, pursue an interest or assess whether the challenge of study is for them.
Often these courses are led by world-class academics and supported by teaching assistants. They deliver the complete learning experience you’d normally receive from a paid course including coursework, exams and results.
