Free online courses for high school students & teachers

Prepare online learning resources for students and support them to learn remotely.

 

The University’s short online courses are specifically designed for students in high schools and colleges and are led by top academics at the forefront of their subjects. The collection of courses is informed by the latest research and includes subjects from STEM to Arts.

These free access courses can be used to enhance the work students complete at school, introduce them to new subjects or improve their online learning skills. All courses are delivered on FutureLearn and can be accessed and completed from any device, including smartphones.

If your school is preparing online learning resources for pupils to study at home, then the University’s online courses might provide a solution until schools reopen.

NEW: This selection of online courses are part of the Futurelearn’s Schools Initiative – a new initiative that gives millions of UK students aged 13+ free upgraded access (learners already have free access but now learners will also be able to keep the courses and complete the tests completely free of charge) to over a hundred relevant short courses on their platform.

 

Discover a wide range of free access online courses for science, technology, engineering and maths subjects informed by recent research.
