What are FutureLearn Programs?

Written by Dhawal Shah last updated on July 11th, 2019

Looking for a listing of FutureLearn courses?

Programs are a micro-credential launched by FutureLearn and are made up of two to ten courses in a specific field. Some programs finish with a final assessment. If you purchase and earn a certificate in each course, then pass the final assessment (if applicable), you receive an award. You can enroll in some programs and start learning without paying, but will need to purchase the courses and final assessment to receive your award. Other programs, particularly those designed for professionals in particular fields, are only available to students who pay.
