MOOCs (Massive open online courses)

Our massive open online courses – or MOOCs – bring The University of Manchester's teaching to a global audience.

All you need to undertake a MOOC is an Internet connection. Unlike other courses they are free of charge and a typical MOOC lasts six to eight weeks. At the end you may choose to receive a certificate of completion for a small fee.

Your study on a MOOC takes place entirely online, through videos, discussions, quizzes, and reading and research activities.

We offer our MOOCs through Coursera and FutureLearn.
