What is FutureLearn Campus?

UCL has now joined FutureLearn Campus – an initiative that enables us to provide UCL students and staff with free upgraded access to existing UCL Futurelearn courses, alongside courses from any other institutions signed up to the scheme.

When you sign up for a course using FutureLearn Campus you will gain benefits that would orginarily require payment, including:

  • Access to the course for as long as it’s available on FutureLearn 
  • Access to any course assessments and a digital Certificate of Achievement when you have met relevant course criteria.

Using FutureLearn Campus

FutureLearn Campus is available via UCL single sign on. To sign up:

  • Navigate to UCL FutureLearn Campus and click the ‘Start learning now’ button
  • Complete UCL single sign on with your UCL credentials
  • If you don’t have a FutureLearn account, create one, but if you do, sign in with your usual FutureLearn credentials and the accounts will be linked.

FutureLearn Campus will be available until the end of 2020. If you have any questions about the service, please contact futurelearn@ucl.ac.uk.
