The University of Edinburgh offers a range of online courses that can be a valuable resource for academic skills and personal development. Explore our free short online courses, which are available to all or our portfolio of postgraduate online learning opportunities.

To date, more than 2.7 million people have signed up to Edinburgh courses across a broad range of subject areas, which form part of the University's commitment to knowledge exchange and community outreach.

Our free online courses have no entry requirements and are led by world-class academics. Typically they require one to two hours of study each week for around five weeks, and are self-directed, meaning you follow the course materials, complete the readings and assessments, and get help from a large community of fellow learners through online forums.
