About Coursera and our MOOCs

Coursera is the social entrepreneurship company that partners with the top universities in the world to offer short, open online courses (often called ‘MOOCs’). Registration and participation in these online courses is free, with a small fee paid at the end of the course if you wish to receive a certificate from Coursera.

We have partnered with Coursera to enable you to study a number of short courses that have been derived from the portfolio of programmes offered by the University of London International Programmes or developed by academics from amongst the University of London’s eighteen federal Colleges.

We currently have the following courses available (start dates differ):

To find out more about these courses and to register to receive notification about when they will be running next please visit the Coursera website.

About us

University of London International Programmes enables you to study for a prestigious University of London degree without attending a University of London College full-time, on campus. You study by distance and flexible learning so you can fit this around your work and family life. Studying one of our short courses via Coursera provides a great preparation for one of our qualifications.
