Coursera Partner Consortium

The Coursera Consortium programme allows GU students and staff to earn Verified Certificates for completion of University Courses, Guided Projects, and Specializations free of charge.

More information on accessing courses.

FutureLearn campus

Did you know you  and your students can connect your Glasgow email and your FutureLearn account to gain access to FutureLearn Campus? FutureLearn Campus allows anyone enrolled at Glasgow to gain upgraded access to Glasgow’s courses, retaining access if the course closes. This is a great opportunity to allow your learners to engage in content created for another course but is highly advantageous to their learning. For example, this could be a generic course we offer in Research Impact, which could be applicable to all learners, or it could be a specific course in Working with refugees, focusing on a special justice approach.
