The University of Birmingham’s Massive Open Online Learning courses are free and designed to offer a taste of higher education to learners from throughout the UK and the world. We are delivering new MOOCs in partnership with FutureLearn, the UK’s first MOOCs provider established by The Open University.

Delivered by our world-class academics, the courses enable learners 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.

Student feedback

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.
