Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs)
A MOOC is a free, open, online course designed to offer a taste of higher education to learners from across the UK and the world. The University of Birmingham is delivering new MOOCs in partnership with FutureLearn, the UK’s first MOOCs provider established by The Open University.
Delivered by world-class academics from the University of Birmingham, the courses enable learners worldwide to sample high-quality academic content via an interactive web-based platform from a leading global university, increasing access to higher education for a whole new cohort of learners.
The courses are developed by senior academic staff and their content is reviewed regularly, taking into account student feedback. The courses do not offer credits towards admission to the University of Birmingham.
