FutureLearn's aim is to connect learners from all over the globe with high quality educators, and with each other.
Courses are delivered one step at a time, and are accessible on mobile, tablet and desktop, so you can fit learning around your life, rather than your life around learning.
We are a private company wholly owned by the Open University, with the benefit of over 40 years of their experience in distance learning and online education.
Our partners include over 20 of the best UK and international universities, as well as institutions with a huge archive of cultural and educational material, including the British Council, the British Library, and the British Museum.
FutureLearn is in beta and the courses we'll be running this year are all pilot courses. This allows us to shape and refine how it all works, using feedback and ideas from our learners.
